The single line kite is laid back and cool to look at, easy to fly or challenging as the situation calls for. If she is very easy-going, and calm and relaxed, and not very athletic or willing to try for it, maybe a single line kite would suit her.
The dual line kite is for the person who goes with the flow, but who also wants to play around. They are very easy to pick up and learn to fly, but quite challenging to master the tricks (there are so many!), especially in the higher end. The dual line kites do the greatest range of tricks. If she would a bit more control over what's going on, and would like to experiment with flippy-floppy style tricks, maybe a dual line would be best for her. A dual line is great for folks who like to get up and move around, but might or might not want to put a lot of effort into flying
Ah! Now, the quad line stunt Revolution stunt kite. For the person who wants the ultimate control over their kite. For the social person. Natural born leaders. Usually smarter, better looking, faster, and nicer-smelling than the rest of the pack (um er ok so I'm biased ). I fly the Revolution because I'm determined to fly a kite, always. No matter where the location. No matter what the situation! I don't have the time to wait for Mother Nature to be kind with the winds....
IMHO, the Rev has a pretty steep learning curve, but then mastering the tricks is a little easier (the opposite of a dual line, IMO). Flying the Rev is a fairly involved ordeal, and requires a degree of concentration. If she has a never say die attitude, if she will stick with it, and is willing to be athletic and run around and really try (at first), the Rev is an experience that just keeps getting better with time. It really does require effort though, so if she gives up easily on challenging things, maybe the Rev isn't for her.
Let's hope she likes the Rev so you can have a team-flying partner handy
