Re: First kit just purchased, will it be suitable?

Well done, great choice. Superb kites, try and get lessons using your own kites, it'll give you great confidence for when you head out after having lessons.

Re: Kite gear with Ryanair

Bigstevieg, I've just bought the Mystic Matrix bag for a trip to fuerte that is pretty light if you look on the powerkiteshop website they show the weights with and without gear in, although I got mine from King of watersports as they had a 10% deal on.

Re: playing in the sand- time for a key pod

I started out with a key safe, first time I used it, put in the correction combination (I had checked it several times before using), lock opened but the safe part did not, I had a mate's key in my car, and we were the last at the beach!
