KITE SIZE CALCULATOR

FOR LEI KITE & TWINTIP

This calculator is provided to help independent level riders to choose 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 – 40knots.

BOARD SIZE

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

  • 133 x 40cm for riders 50 -70kg
  • 136 x 41cm for riders 60-80kg
  • 139 x 42cm for riders 80 -90kg
  • 142 x 43cm for riders 90kg+

It is common practice for beginner kiteboarders to ride an oversized (light wind) board as it allows them more stability underfoot as they learn to ride. Whenever using an oversized board in over 15 knots, you will ride a smaller kite than this calculator suggests. If you ride an oversized board for your weight, you should use this Large Twintip Calculator for Beginners to find the correct kite size.

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.
