  • 2017 Star Kites - Most Affordable - Best Value

     Kite-Line is proud to announce not only a new kite brand to our line but one that is truly unique in their approach and products. After a little research,  we were pleasantly surprised  to not only find a brand that is established, but one that maintains some of the lowest MSRP prices on the market with gear that could easily rival any of the elite brands.

    With deep roots in Cabarete and Miami, we learned Starkites prides themselves not on profits but great designs that are affordable for all those who need to kite! While having been around for 10 years, they have simply focused on kiteboarding and not marketing. And while you may have only seen their organic popularity in Europe, Cabarete or Miami we see the brand as one that cant help to explode with their approach. We all know being affordable is huge, but also being of quality; is a slam dunk! We also like their very smart 2 kite line to keep things simple in a freeride kite that does it all called the TAINA and a crossover for freestyle named the SIRIUS.This is way less confusing for entry level/intermediates and becomes something you can count on for all the pros.

    With years of refinements, we are very excited to see Starkites assume a new spot in our line that is all about Value where lowest prices meets exceptional design. Please see the innovative tech and exceptional pricing below:

    In its 6th generation, the TAINA is our best seller. After four years of refinements we’ve created the ultimate wind machine to satisfy all styles, all levels, in all conditions.

    WAVERIDING

    The Taina reacts very well to bar input, can be steered one-handed, and has a very precise feel allowing riders to position the kite anywhere in an instant. The kite’s excellent depower gives riders the option to surf with or without kite power. There is no need to look at the kite to know where it is allowing riders to completely focus on the wave.

    FREERIDE/OLDSCHOOL

    This all-round beast turns sharp, jumps high, has incredible grunt, and catches well during mega-loops. Due to its great depower, sending the kite in overpowered conditions without losing your edge is easily achieved. Its power delivery is exponential giving the kite a superb vertical lift.

    RACING/SPEED

    The Taina has incredible upwind performance and the ability to fly on all points of sail. With small wingtips, a big projected area, and only 3 struts, we have achieved the highest power to drag ratio making the Taina a top competitor for racing on water and snow.

    BEGINNERS/KITESCHOOLS

    The Tania’s performance also excels in its user-friendly characteristics. Its profile is shaped in a way that makes the kite virtually impossible to stall and re-launches effortlessly. Due to the Taina’s total depower ability; this kite is very safe and easy to use.
    Since 2014, we’ve added the Taina 17 meter to our collection. This size gets riders going in as low as 6-7 knots of wind! We made sure the turning speed and feel stayed similar to the smaller sizes. In 10 knots this kite will have you ride fully powered and offer incredible hang time.
    With over 200 windy days a year, our test center in Cabarete demands a kite that can last in surf wipeouts, heavy shore break, strong winds, school use and very frequent sessions. To satisfy this demand, we’ve gathered the best canopy material, one pump system/valves, and bridle lines currently available in the trade.

    The 4th generation TAINA 2017 comes in 4 color options, kite bag, and repair kit.

    LIGHT WIND (T14 & T17 only)

    Because the practice of our sport in light wind does not requires the same kites characteristics than the other wind range, the Taina 14 and 17 were developed in the idea to extend the low range compares to the rest of the collection for that. We first change the complete shape of the kite by adding another strut to keep the kite rigid and bring more stability. We opted for a non-pulley connection for a more direct feeling and more reactivity.

    In the first years of the TAINA, with our idea to develop the kite as light as possible we removed the one pump system and the reinforcement that were useless for light wind. As not only light wind riders but also the heaviest of us using the 14 as a freestyle kites, we decided this year to add the necessary Dacron reinforcement for this type of use. The proven effectiveness in light wind added to the demand of a one pump system by most of our customers, the 2017 Taina 14 and 17 models received our single inflation system.

    SIZES-WINDRANGE

    (based on a 75 kg rider on a 135 twintip)
    17 M = 6 – 14 Knots (with single inflation system)
    14 M = 8 – 18 Knots (with single inflation system)
    12 M = 10 – 22 Knots
    10 M = 12 – 25 Knots
    9 M = 16 – 30 Knots
    7 M = 18 – 35 Knots

    5.5 M = 23 – max Knots

  • The all new 2016 Ozone Reo v8 kitesurfing kite is here

    Check out the new 2016 Ozone Reo v3 kitesurfing kite.

    Ryland-Reo-Slash-840x560

    Hooked or un-hooked the 2016 Ozone REO V3 Kite performs to any given task in the waves. Simply trim in with the de-power cleat before unhooking and the Reo V3 will fly and float in unison with your riding movements. If you prefer to ride unhooked often we suggest connecting the back lines to the longer knot position. To customize bar pressure and turning speed use the rear tabs on the wingtips where the back bridle lines attach. As with all Ozone products, we pride ourselves with top of the line manufacturing in our own factory, using the highest quality materials suited for the job. The Ozone Reo V3 kitesurfing kite is constructed with quality proven Teijin D2 canopy material and Teijin Dacron providing a crisper feel and a stronger kite. The Reo V3 is designed tough without the need of unnecessary cosmetic items that only add weight and drag which reduce performance.

     

     

    The relatively low aspect kite design combined with fast direct handling generates consistent power to get around sections in a wave. Finely tuned profiles and wing shaping offer unmatched drifting characteristics - as you ride down the line the Reo will float allowing more concentration lining up the next section. De-powering the 2016 Ozone REO V3 Kite is smooth and efficient, canopy luff is progressive which means the kite maintains positive bar pressure and handling throughout the de-power throw range, making the kite very reactive at all angles of attack.

     

     

    The 2016 Ozone REO V3 Kite is the same kite design as the much loved Reo 2015 model, with fresh new colors and our new Contact-Water Control System with soft bar ends to help protect your surfboard against knocks from the bar. The Reo V3 is advanced in design yet simple to let you focus on surfing the wave. Versatile performance makes all conditions, from on-shore slop to cross-off barreling reef breaks, fun and easy.

     

     

    2016 Ozone REO V3 Performance Features

     

    • Versatile performance in any wind and wave conditions.
    • Direct handling - turns on a dime.
    • Mega de-power range.
    • Excellent float and drift characteristics.
