New to winging and wondering what size wings to bring to LV for the winter. I am 75kg, my wife 65kg (we will share a quiver), new to winging but proficient kite foilers. Don't need to go out on the lightest days (bike days) or nuking days (surf days). So what size would you recommend for a 3 wing quiver?

I was down there last winter. I'm 82 kg.
I had 3 wings-3, 4, 5 and never wanted for another size.
3m 30%
4m 50%
5m 20%

My wings are BRM clouds - they are very powerful for their size.
I would recommend 3,4,5 (+-.5) for you and your wife.

IMO-winging is most fun on windy days when you can ride the swell on the outside.
Winging is for the big surf days!
