Hi guys, i will be arriving in Boston in may 2013. I am from the northeast coast of Brazil and I have ben kiting for about 6 months. I weight about 200 pounds and Here in Brazil I have a 13m2 kite which I use for winds of up th 18 knots and a 9m2 for faster winds. I don't intend to bring my equipment with me and want to buy new equipment as soon as I arrive or when the season starts. What do you guys suggest? Is there a place where I can buy a new, or slightly used kite for a reasonable price? What are the usual wind conditions during the kite season? What kite sizes do you suggest for a guy os my weight?

Thanks a lot
