Looking advice on a beginner kite set up found the following but thought it was too pricey - new to kiting so wasn't sure

12m RRD hypertype 2
RRD bar and lines
Cabrinha prodigy 138 board
RRD harness
Mystic ammobox boardbag
Pump

All 2009
All in good condition from what I can tell
Board bag zip broken from salt build up
Equipment hasn't been used in 5 years +

£300

Good price / bad price?
Good fit? 6'1 188lbs/85kg

2009 is too old. The seals may have weakened, spare parts not available and there is safer more modern equipment available.
Take a lesson from a BKSA licensed school - a two day course is usually around £190-200 and the instructor will also give you good advice or may have second hand equipment for you to buy.
