It depends what do you want to do - buggying, kiteboarding, kitesurfing or just jumping on a beach.
With a larger kite it's a good idea to get a harness as well to hook the kite to. Some people happily jump with handles and no harness but I'd say you'll get you hands tired quickly. If you get a depowerable kite you won't be a good idea to fly it without a harness.
For water you'll be looking for an inflatable or closed-cell foil kite. An inflatable is prone to puncturing and good foils are a bit on expensive side.
My personal choice of foil power kites is Peter Lynn, Flysurfer and HQ. Pansh is cheaper but it seems to luff more.
I have three new kites I can offer - Flysurfer Cool 8m, Flysurfer Cool2 8m, Flysurfer Psycho4 12m and also leading edge inflatable Slingshot Rev '09 13m (demo) but you can find quite a few of new ones in stores and on the web too. As usual eBay is somewhat less safe but you can get a good deal if you know what you're looking for.
