Kiteboarding

Kiteboarding, kitesurfing, or whatever you want to call it, is a fast growing extreme sport that combines aspects of surfing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, paragliding, and more. Over the years, the sport has developed and evolved from attaching kites to canoes, skis, and iceskates in the 1980s, to strapping kite foils to windsurfing boards in 1990s. Soon after, specialized kites and boards were developed and the sport of Kiteboarding was born! In the sport’s short history, incredible advancements in technology have been made and each year better, lighter, more durable, and more reliable kiteboards, kites, and other kiteboarding gear have been made.

  1. Kite Line 2014 Slingshot Turbine

    2014 Slingshot Turbine

    $2,199.00

    The 2014 Slingshot Turbine has adopted our proven mini strut technology that makes it a full structured five strut kite. It eliminates battens while offering the same benefits seen with our reflex wingtip in our other Open Delta C kites. To enhance rider customization we have added three additional wingtip attachment points for the rear flying lines. The 2014 Slingshot Turbine should be part of every riders quiver.

     


    The 2014 Slingshot Turbines progressive Open Delta C design has been updated with a new bridle. We moved from last year’s 3 point LE attachment configuration to a new 5 point cascading bridle attachment system. This is critical for creating a more consistent smooth feel throughout the power stroke when sheeting in and out with the bar. This gives you specific control over the power which significantly increases range on the low end and high end. Additional new improvements include a new lower aspect ratio that is combined with a LE diameter reduction of 9%. The two work together to create more grunt and power without sacrificing riding speed, efficiency or upwind performance. 

     

     

    Everyone knows that if you want to get on the water and have fun in 5 to 6 knots your kite has to be light. We agree, but if you want to go beyond just mowing the lawn you need a sophisticated kite. The 2014 Slingshot Turbine not only gets you on the water first, it provides a performance ride and lets you stay on the water even as the wind is picking up.

  2. Kite Line 2015 Slingshot NF2 Hydro Foil Board

    2015 Slingshot NF2 Hydro Foil Board

    $2,799.00

    The 2015 Slingshot NF2 Hydro Foil Board is designed to perform well in all aspects of freeriding and appeal to anyone looking to get into foiling. It’s user-friendly yet extremely efficient and high performance. This makes it the perfect crossover for flat water, ocean, and river sessions. Co-Founder and Head Slingshot Product Designer Tony Logosz has quietly been working with Nick Leason of Lift Foils for more than two years. According to Logosz, “The technology and knowledge that goes into building a quality hydrofoil does not come over night. 



    Working with the best in the industry was a critical part of our long-term approach to developing foils. Nick could focus on design criteria while I could focus on general wide- market appeal, composites and the overall final fit and finish. Our shared R&D effort has lead us to set the standard for quality and performance for those looking to get into foil boarding. Think of it like this: Slingshot builds the computer and Lift builds the technology inside. The combination, simply put, is incomparable.”

    Slingshot NF²

    NF² Technology
    The NF² hydrofoil is entirely designed for accuracy using the latest in CAD and CNC capabilities. Every detail is tested and optimized for maximum control and stability while increasing the potential for speed. We believe Carbon Fiber construction is critical in building quality foils. While most foils generally look the same, the reality is that subtle details make all the difference.
    These details are not always discernible with the human eye
     but the differences can sure be felt on the water. The saying you get what you pay for has never been more relevant than when buying your first foil. Our process and construction uses the latest manufacturing technologies and carbon materials available. We have spared nothing in order to ensure that our foils have the proper strength, weight and deflection characteristics. The advantage of carbon combining the latest applied material sciences into the Slingshot foil are:
    1. It offers neutral buoyancy which is key to making a true freeriding foil - it improves handling and makes water starting much easier when learning. More important is it allows you to progress to wakeskates and skateboard decks that do not have the volume to support a heavy foil.
    2. The foil is manufactured using precise mechanics resulting in increased control, speed and upwind ability.
    3. It
    's highly responsive which enhances the overall rider experience in all conditions.

There are different styles of kiteboarding, from freeride or freestyle, wave-riding, and even course and speed racing. The freeride kiteboarding style is pretty much the “anything goes” approach and is the most popular. Most kiteboards sold today are freeride boards with twin tips. The freestyle style of riding is focused on getting big air and doing airborne tricks. Smaller boards and kites with good hang times are used. The wave-riding kiteboarding style is closest to surfing since it is done in a location with a wave break, which is why the sport is often referred to as kitesurfing. This style most often uses a single-point directional board, sometimes without footstraps, and some even use a standard surfboard. The wakestyle style of kiteboarding is most similar to wakeboarding and is focused on tricks and aerials and uses boards with bindings to keep riders strapped in. There are also course racing and speed racing kiteboarding styles which involve speed, skill, and strategy. Specially designed directional race boards with longer fins are used with the goal of outperforming the other kiters to come in first place.
