Yes I have looked at catalogs but they always are for much heavier people than me, they are also in meters squared but since I want to make my own kite using one of Saul's Instructables use meters squared unless I build it hoping that it has the right surface area. If it helps I am just beginning to try out kite boarding. If you or anyone else happened to have some sort of formula for figuring out surface area that would be great. Thanks!

I am not a kiteboarder so it might be best to look at a couple of kiteboarding instructables and comment or PM the author of the instructable if you have questions. I'm sure you'll find your answer.
