A new season of kiteboarding gear is upon us and with all the hype, you’re most likely wondering, “What’s the best?” Our favorites? We looked for the best gear for the most varied conditions. Whether you kite in the surf, the river, or big lakes, here’s what we like (so far – there are still many new models to be released through the end of this Fall).
The 2015 Season Kiteboarding Gear Favorites:
The 2015 Cabrinha Switchblade is again, one of the best kites on the market. This kite is a high performing, all around kite offering great control. Plus, it’s easy on the bar. From light wind power to high-wind power-dumping, this kite has a huge range.
The 2015 Cabrinha Drifter is ideal for surfriders. Specifically designed as a kitesurfing kite, the Drifter offers intensely fast turning, lots of depower, and slack line drift. Plus, more so than other kites, the Drifter is fast to relaunch, getting you out of the ocean-fury and back on-board. The wide wind-range makes this a waverider’s go-to kite.
The 2015 Slingshot Rally is most definitely a user friendly kite, no matter what style of riding you like to do. With a huge wind range, and great low-end power, the Rally offers incredible maneuverability and efficiency. Plus, like all Slingshot kites, the durability and quality construction is legendary.
For foil fans, the 2015 Flysurfer Speed 4 Lotus is an amazing choice. Whether your on the low end or powered up, the Speed 4 Lotus stays stable in the sky. It’s got phenomenal turning speed and is great for jumping. And relaunching is a cinch.
The 2015 Slingshot Angry Swallow is the most unique surfboard shape in kiteboarding, with a truncated nose that reduces swing weight. It’s parallel outline minimizes the drag and optomizes water speed. The angry swallow is about air, spins, tricks, and stable, upwind performance.
