How to Snowkite
Volume One, Instructional Snowkiting DVD
by Morten Gjerstad
Who better to make a great new (and sorely needed) snowkiting instructional video than the maker of the amazing snowkite DVDs like Entropy and Something Stronger - Morten Gjerstad. He is not only an accomplished filmmaker (using all high-definition footage) but also has access to the top riders in the world who are on the cutting edge of what is happening in snowkiting.
This is 2 hours of the most thorough introduction to snowkiting you can imagine. There are chapters on terminology, equipment, location and conditions, kite flying basics, using foil kites, using tube kites (each kite chapter includes information on setup, safety systems, launching and landing, relaunching, and even packing), riding basics (like edging, turning, and going upwind), back country riding, expedition kiting, kite repair, and basic jumping. This is definitely the complete course to becoming a safe and confident snowkiter. When volume 2 is released it will take off from the basic jump and go into all the trick types of jumps and many other specialized advanced snowkiting skills.

KITE SIZE RECOMMENDATIONS
The 2m is about as much fun as you can hope to have with a small kite. Massive top end wind range for high-speed buggy runs and just the right amount of challenge for anyone with ambition.
The 3m is the ideal entry point in the range for the land locked kiter, generating power early on in the wind range while always being easy to control. Quite possibly the perfect introduction to land boarding.
The 4m has the bottom end power needed in the lighter winds likely to be encountered by novice snow kiters and is a great mid-range buggy engine or land board motor.
The 5m is the one to beat in is this category, with light wind performance for effortless traction and an upper limit the pros will just keep pushing.

Flysurfer Viron Kite - Get Infected
“The Flysurfer Viron Kite is the simplest and safest kite on the market”
The Flysurfer Viron Kite is not just any kite, it defines a class of its own. Maximum safety, optimally user-friendly, simplest relaunch and unbelievable stability. We don’t know of another kite that combines all these features better. The Flysurfer Viron Kite is a kite for all beginners, kite schools, lightweights and for use with stand up paddleboards and gusty winds.
Flysurfer Viron Kite Auto Relaunch
When it comes to relaunch, we set a new kiteboarding benchmark with the Flysurfer Viron Kite . The Flysurfer Viron Kite is the first kite to incorporate Auto-Relaunch. Even in low winds, when letting go of the bar, the kite skims automatically across the water and remains parked and ready at the edge of the window. With just a simple steering impulse, the Flysurfer Viron Kite flies on. Furthermore we have built a special bridle into the kite that makes it practically impossible to get tangled on the water.
Flysurfer Viron Kite Easy & Simple Handeling
The Flysurfer Viron Kite delivers exactly the flight feeling you need for a safe entry into the sport. With all the functions and handling of a full-grown kitesurfing kite but with moderate power, the Flysurfer Viron Kite is at home wherever maximum safety and reliability are required. With gentle bar pressure and progressive bar feedback. Bothersome, long steering paths are unknown to the Flysurfer Viron Kite, you have access to the entire depower throw within an arms length. The Viron is the result of our constant attempt to construct a kite resistant to all operating errors. Including endless hard landings on the water.
Flysurfer Viron Kite Safety Maximized
With the Flysurfer Viron Kite, we introduce a new safety: The patented “Reefline-Safety”. When the kiter activates the quick release, the leading edge of the Flysurfer Viron Kite immediately shrinks together, simultaneously the tips will lay against each other. The Flysurfer Viron Kite then blows out with a minimum of rest-pull and can be relaunched anytime, even by beginners. But this is just one of the features that make the Flysurfer Viron Kite an extraordinary safe kite. The enormous flight stability and a highly effective and directly-functioning depower give the pilot a safety cushion never before experienced. And just in case that isn’t enough, the Flysurfer Viron Kite is equipped with a new safety release, dependable, quick and easy to operate.
The Flysurfer Viron Kitesurpasses all boundaries. This is a kite that makes it possible for children to get started in the sport. It is the answer for cautious or nervous kiters re-entering the sport after an accident. The Flysurfer Viron Kite is the storm kite for accomplished riders and at the same time, the kite that kiteschools have been wishfully waiting for. Stress-free fun, regardless of terrain and equipment. Whether on a mountainboard, with ice skates, in the waves, while snowkiting, with a mountain board, on a SUP or just on the beach. All these features make the Viron what we set it out to be during the development.
