    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."
