KITE SIZE CALCULATOR

FOR BEGINNER KITEBOARDERS

This calculator is provided to help BEGINNER level riders choose the correct kite size based on the wind speed, their weight and the size of their twintip kiteboard

Input your weight in kilograms and the wind speed in knots to receive a recommended kite size. The calculator will work with bow, delta and hybrid shape Leading Edge Inflatable kites. The wind range for this calculator is 8 – 30 knots.

BOARD SIZE

The calculated kite size is based on the assumption that a large twintip kiteboard with straps is used for learning and freeriding and matches the rider’s weight:

  • 140 x 42cm – 150 x 45cm  for riders 50-80kg
  • 151 x 43cm – 160 x 50cm  for riders 80kg+

If you are using a smaller kiteboard then use this Twintip Calculator for Independent Riders.

The LEI kite size calculators are provided by thekitepot.com as a guide. Any kite size chosen for kiteboarding is the final decision of the kiteboarder*. Equipment should be used within the wind speed parameters set by the manufacturer. *True Sessions Ltd, thekitespot.com and its directors accept no responsibility for damage or injury to the kiteboarder, 3rd parties or property from any action following the use of kite size calculators.
