get lessons.
No seriously buy the Ikon Peak 7m.
Local brand. Great value.
Your instructor will tell you what to buy when you finish your lessons.
Then go to your local shop and buy it.

The Core Free, 9 meter. Easy going kite, very stable, not radical, easy water re-launch. You will fly the kite instead of the kite flying you.
Good luck with your sessions, if you are like me it takes patience, persistence and a build up of confidence to feel confident on the water with your fellow kiter's...................who are there to always impart their experiences and advice.

honestly all kites these days fly great. I guess the traditional jack of all trades diesel-like feeling kite is the Cabrinha switchblade or North Rebel.

depends where you live.
60kg is great coz depending on where you live you might be able to get away with a single 8m or 10m quiver. :D
