I've relocated to Melbourne from Perth for work, seems like the wind is not as strong and frequent here. I'm a new kiter and wondering what size kite I should have in Melbourne conditions for a 70-75kg male. In Perth I think a 7m and a 10m would've been ideal, however, not too sure what I need for Melbourne conditions?

The same sizes would work just fine here, your 10m kite would probably be the most used as we normally get around 15-20knots when it's windy. The 7m would be fine for when it gets higher, we hardly ever get 30knots plus.
