  • 5 Things to Make Kiteboarding Better This Spring

    Spring KiteboardingDepending where you are, Spring kiteboarding conditions can be flukey, crazy-powerful, or incredibly light. Being prepared for a variety of conditions with gear that offers spot-on performance means you can be out on the water and working the winter-kinks out sooner.

    1 -  Versatile Gear

    Our go-to recommendation this season includes the 2014 Cabrinha Switchblade Kite, the 2014 Cabrinha Tronic Kiteboard, and the 2014 Dakine Pyro Harness. With the Switchblade, you’ll get amazing handling and control on the top end and power on the low end. The Tronic is great for all types of riding and conditions, whether you’re in choppy water or hucking massive airs. If you want the best-fitting waist-harness that will be comfortable with or without your wetsuit, the Pyro is your best bet.

    2 -  Adjustable Footstraps

    When you choose foot straps or bindings, consider whether you’ll be wearing booties this spring and whether you’ll be kiting barefoot later this summer. We recommend foot straps that offer the adjustability so you’re not changing them out half-way through the season. Check out the NSI Ratchet Foot Straps or the Dakine X-Lace Wave Footstraps.

    The NSI design has an integrated ladder strap and ratchet buckle that accommodates a wide range of adjustment. The Dakine foot straps have lace-up tensioners that form to your foot and easily adjust to the perfect size. Both of these models make it easy to change footwear and still use the same straps.

    3 -  A Great Drysuit

    DrysuitStaying warm in really cold water means staying dry. Having some decent foul weather gear when you’re hanging around the launch is also kinda nice. The Ocean Rodeo Ignite Drysuit is both. When worn in “full dry” mode, the Ignite is 100% dry and one of the best drysuits on the market. If conditions back off or you’re taking a break between sessions, you can easily converted to “standby mode” by unzipping the dry zip and removing the neck seal.

    4 -  Warm, Dry Clothes to Change Into

    Keep a warm change of clothes to change into after an awesome session. The Slingshot Payload Duffle is a huge volume 35" x 19" x 19" gear bag built with super durable, water resistant materials and zippers.  And, shoot, why not keep your feet  comfortable in the process with the 2014 Slingshot Folding Changing Mat.
