I am heading out to NZ for 3 weeks to visit my sister in a few weeks time and I am going to take my gear but I have a few questions:

1.) does anyone have experience of kiting over there, Christchurch way for example, and give me any pointers?

2.) I have a 9m and 11m Razor as well as a 2010 RPM 10m and a 14m Airush lithium. I want to take the razors and the 14m but it may be easier to just take the 10m and 14m to have a play with but I don't want to miss out on the windy days. Anyone have any idea what the wind is usually like around April time? Should I take my 9m for 20-30Kns days?

Cheers for the help guys

Look on kitecrowd or seabreeze forums for a user called plummet. He's a local in NZ, sure he will be able to advise
