Just had my first dry land lesson and Im ready to get a used small kite and harness for bigger guy lg/xlg to practice flying body dragging ect. kinda on a budget I have a compstick and lines so anything compatible would work. Im in Southeren Oregon and could travel a bit or if you could ship that would be great
Any help and tips would be appreciated

I wouldn't recommend playing around with a harness and full sized inflatable on land- you generally want water lessons to learn kite control, that way if you get yarded you land in the water and not on land.

I think you are on the right track. You have a 4 line bar which should fly any 4 line kite. All of the lines should be the same length when the depower is fully off - longest position.

As for the kite - a 6 or 7 should work - use it to gain the dragging, relaunching and general flying skills. Get a decent deal on Ikitesurf and when you are done - you can sell it there.
