Kiteboarding is a relatively new sport gaining worldwide popularity, popping up over beaches, mountains and parks everywhere. With picturesque jumps, abundant and no-cost fuel, kite boarding has an appeal to the young and old, the men and women, and the boys and girls. Anyone with a shred of strength and coordination can learn to kite board.
Ozone set out to design a simple, affordable and robust inflatable depower trainer. The 2013 Ozone Uno Trainer Kite is a unique design, with only one strut it is an ideal kitesurf trainer for schools, operating and functioning the same as a larger inflatable water kite. It is also perfect for any kiter to have as a fun addition to his/her quiver to get family and friends into kiting.
The 2013 Ozone Uno Trainer Kite is responsive, smooth and stable. It comes in two sizes 2.5m and 4.0m, with enough power to ensure beginners will be ready to progress to the next level. The 2013 Ozone Uno Trainer Kite works with the standard Ozone 4 line kitesurf bar (recommended line lengths 15-25m), allowing an easy progression onto a larger Ozone water kite after learning the basics with the Uno.
The 2013 Ozone Uno Trainer Kite is great for teaching because the student can learn how to use the safety systems and how to re-launch with ease, using the same bar system as on the larger Ozone water kites. Schools can now teach students in high winds in the water, without having to sacrifice functionality of an inflatable kite. It can also be used for first lessons on land.

The 2014 Cabrinah Relauch kite is a scaled down single strut inflatable kite, designed to show students how to use a fully functioning 4 line kite. Since the Relaunch is designed to be used with a standard Overdrive control system, the student will be familiar with all of the control and security features by the time they get on the water for their 1st lesson. As the name denotes, the 2014 Cabrinah Relauch will teach a rider the real world techniques of water launching an inflatable kite by pulling on the left or right leader lines. It will also teach a rider the important technique of operating a 1X security system.

Simulates interactive depower
Compatible with overdrive 1x security & control system / bar not included
Here at Kite-line, we heavily recommend learning to fly and control a trainer kite designed by Slingshot, Sensei, Ocean Rodeo, HQ, Flysurfer, Ozone or Peter Lynn. Without proper control and technique taught by a qualified instructor to go over basics, weather conditions, setups and maneuvers, it would be easy to rip a brand new kite or even be dangerous. While we highly recommend getting instruction from a reliable school, we know you can have a lot of fun learning on trainer kite.
Trainer kites are typically made smaller than a standard kite. While larger kites are a bit more smooth, trainer kites can have sensitive controls and features that can ease the learning curve for new kiters. Other things to consider are the number of lines, the presence of a safety leash, wind range, and use of a harness loop.
