I first saw kite landboarding at the bristol kite festival and decided to buy a kite. After asking around various shops I bought bullet 2.5m.
I went for this kite because the PKD Buster, the best cheap kite, costs 130 + 10 for some kite killers (I strongly recomend these as they have saved me a few times).
The 2.5m bullet costs 170, only 30 more, but it comes with kitekillers, dyneema lines, a decent bag. the handles are really comfy and the kite developes more than enough power.
The first time I flew the kite was in 15 mph winds. The left lines were a couple of inches too long which resulted in me getting dragged over the whole beach. The next tme I flew the kite was in 5-10 mph winds. This was really good fun and I got the hang of steering.
The kite behaves well and it is not too much of an effort to steer, take-off or land. it also goes very far round the wind window. After a few more goes I can now jump about 4-5 feet in a decent wind. You do have to pull on the brake lines for the best power
I think the bullet is a very good value for money kite that is easy to learn on and will last a long time. It would also suit more expierienced flyers as well.
