  • Rider FAQ: Finding the Right Light Wind Kiteboard

    After spending the last couple decades kiteboarding and running a kiteboarding supply company, we’ve been asked thousands of questions about kite gear, kite destinations, and kiteboarding in general.  We’re always happy to help folks find what they looking for, so if you have some nagging question about the sport, or just need a quick tip toward the gear that fits your style, don’t be shy. Ask us!

    Flysurfery Flydoor Light Wind Kiteboarding

    Light Wind Kiteboarding

    In the past few years, there have been so many advancements in kites and kiteboards for light wind conditions that it’s hard to sort through the huge assortment to find the best. Just yesterday, we had a customer call us with a question:

    "I have an older board that I ride in light wind conditions, but it’s not that much fun. Are new light wind boards any better? What would you recommend?"

    Light wind boards have come a long way over the years.  Early boards were extremely flat with no rocker and very small fins. They were very efficient but due to their "flatness" they were boring and sometimes difficult to ride. The other issue with older light wind boards is catching an edge and pearling the board if the water has any chop in it at all.

    Light wind kiteboards today have a decent amount of rocker and will flex your weight, increase/decrease in wind and the pull of the kite.  It means you can use the board in higher winds and choppier waters while still having fun doing tricks and riding waves.

    Our favorite Light Wind Kiteboards:

     

    Lightwave Wing KiteboardThe Lightwave Wing Kiteboard

     

    The Litewave Wing is a very light weight, thin, and flexy kiteboard. The board has a unique 'parabolic sidecut' outline that helps you plane quickly and rocket upwind. It’s also got wider tips that give you unbelievable "load and pop.” Because the reality is that you’re looking for fun. If you wanted to slowly “mow the lawn,”  you would have stayed home.

     

     

    2013 FLYSURFER FLYDOOR4 KITEBOARDFlysurfer Flydoor

    The Flysurfer Flydoor is probably one of the most popular light wind boards in the world. Flydoor boards have a reputation as amazing light wind boards. But unlike many other light wind specific boards, the Flydoor has a huge wind-range and kill it, even in extremely gusty conditions.

    “Just wanted to drop you a line to say I got the XL FB4 .... It's absolutely nothing short of completely amazing. What a light wind weapon - in just 8-9 kts with a 21 m speed 3 I was jumping and being catapulted off the water with no effort. Love the board soooo much. Wish I'd bought one sooner."

  • Back from SurfExpo 2013

    2013 Surf Expo

    In the scheme of things, kiteboarding is a small part of last weekend’s Surf Expo in Orlando (only about 11% of the attendees are there for wind related stuff). But we go every year because we always walk away with something we didn’t have before – an actual visual on the newest gear, a sense of the vibe for the upcoming season. And of course it’s great to hang with the people we email and call on the phone for the other 51 weeks each year.

    A lot of this product isn’t available yet, but you can contact us before September 15 to place an early order and get’s the goods first.

    Lots of great stuff to look forward to but a few products stood out.

    We’ve already posted a few times about Cabrinha’s 2014 line. Seeing it all in person confirmed our enthusiasm.  It’s gonna be GOOD! The Flysurfer Cronix looks kickass. And F-One is ready to knock it outa the park with this year’s boards.

    You’re gonna want this stuff. Trust us.

  • Flysurfer’s first LEI Kite: the Cronix

    Flysurfer Cronix KitesWhen we heard that Flysurfer was releasing the Cronix - their first LEI (leading edge inflatable) kite, we braced ourselves for epic goodness.  Flysurfer has been dedicated to innovation and phenomenal quality for the last 10 years. German engineering and an intense passion for kiting means this company’s first step into LEI kites is destined to be a good one.

    Some folks are leery of a company’s first stab at a product – we are too. But don’t be timid of Flysurfer’s move into the LEI arena.  It’s not their first rodeo.  Flysurfer’s X-GLOO division has years of experience in building and designing inflatable constructions.

    These folks are no clowns; they take the bull by the horns. Each individual line and each small piece of cloth in the canopy is thoroughly tested. They replaced pulleys on the front lines with maintenance-free, durable low-friction rings, and their Free Flow Valve makes pumping easy.

    The Cronix has an Adaptive Airfoil System which generates a considerable increase in low end power. When you power up, the trailing edge bridle gives you more lift through the curvature of the kite profile and it only takes a few seconds to adjust it to your riding style.

    The Cronix has a huge wind range and has an ultimately-fast and sporty flight feel. It’s a super-smooth and uncomplicated kite to fly. In the words of the company, “Relaunching is easy for novices even in the lightest winds, cruisers will immediately feel at home with the Cronix and wake & freestylers have the ultimate drug at their disposal.”
