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.

    The 2014 Slingshot Vision’s outline and chined rails prevents spray by focusing the water down and away from the rider. With the addition of laser cutting technology we were able to create the first ever “bonzer” channel configuration on a full wood-core board. Combined with a continuous rocker line that delivers smooth turns and landings while still providing maximum edge control and maneuverability. The 2014 Slingshot Vision is built with the “legendary Slingshot construction” using only the highest-quality and greenest materials available. Realize your Vision.

     


    Vision is what drives innovation and it is the force behind the new 2014 Slingshot Vision twin-tip. Inspired by the performance and versatility of the RPM kite, the Vision was created to bridge the gap between competitive and recreational riding. All the features on the 2014 Slingshot Vision are carefully tuned to deliver a balanced ride for all ability levels and style. Starting with a completely new approach, we dialed in the 2014 Slingshot Vision’s flex pattern to deliver outstanding pop and soft landings, regardless of whether you are riding boots or footstraps.

    DIMENSIONS

    138 x 42 cm (35.25 cm at tip/tail)
    140 x 43.1 cm (35.8 cm at tip/tail)



    SINGLESHOT™ FUSION SIDEWALL

    We’ve transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.


    ATOMIC CORE

    This all-wood, ultra lightweight core provides the liveliest feel ever. There is no better core
    material for achieving the best flex performance and durability in a board than full wood. Our wood is locally farmed from sustainable forests, that’s why we call it Columbian Gold.


    CHINED RAILS

    Designed to completely redirect spray away and down, these features reduce the area of contact between the board and surface of the water. Also offers a smoother slide on obstacles and helps prevent catching an edge on sketchy landings. Basically, the outermost part of the base is angled up along the rail.


    CONTINUOUS ROCKER

    Rider friendly rocker that fits all riding styles

    NEW 60/40 SLANTWALL™

    Super-impact-resistant sidewalls built to withstand the harshest riding. The new 60/40
    rail is stiffer with a boxier edge to create more surface for thrashing, plus variable contoured side cut shaping for firm grip and clean release off the water.

    LEGENDARY SLINGSHOT CONSTRUCTION

    Premium materials, innovative design and constant testing to ensure long lasting durability and performance. Hand built by Moonshine MFG in the Pacific Northwest, USA.


    NACA DUCT CHANNELS

    Using aeronautic technology the NACA Duct channels water like a vacuum from the middle of the board to the tip. The directed water accelerates through the channel and increases the board speed and grip to the water. The rider will gain edge control and reduced drag through the water.

    LIFETIME RIDER SUPPORT HOTLINE

    Connect directly with our knowledgeable in-house professional customer service department.


    NEW PRECISION LASER-CUT CHANNELS

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.
