nolatom, good points all - I would only caution against trying to fly the kite in TOO light air - that can be an exercise in frustration.
Bringing a coach along the first time or two is a great idea, also have your regular crew along at the same time so that everyones on the same page during gybes, sets and takedowns.
The Aloha 27 is a great boat to learn on as the fractional rig keeps the kite an easily manageable size.
