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.
The 2015 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. The 2015 Ozone Uno Trainer Kite can also be used for first lessons on land. Being a lightweight package it is easy to travel with and keep in the car. The Uno trainer is a simple, affordable and robust inflatable de-power trainer.
The 2015 Ozone Uno Trainer Kite is responsive, smooth and stable. It comes in two sizes (2.5m and 4m) with enough power to ensure beginners will be ready to progress to the next level. The Uno works with the standard Ozone Contact Control System (recommended line lengths 15-25m), allowing an easy progression onto a larger Ozone water kite after learning the basics with the Uno. With a unique design incorporating only one strut it is an ideal kitesurf trainer for schools, operating and functioning the same as larger inflatable water kites. It is also perfect for any kiter to have as a fun addition to his/her quiver to get family and friends into kiting.

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.
