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.

“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.

The 2014 Ozone Access Snowkite was designed with the idea in mind of creating an entry level snowkite and making the learning process of Snowkiting as safe and easy as possible.
Even though the 2014 Ozone Access Snowkite was originally designed for entry level riders and teaching, it remains a firm favorite for experienced riders who require ultra stability in turbulent high mountain conditions. Most of our International team riders keep a 4m or a 6m in their quiver and would not be caught without it for those trips to the mountains. The Access has been a favorite for expeditions where it is essential to have safe and easy to use kites in extreme conditions. The 2014 Ozone Access Snowkite has been redesigned from the ground up, it has a newly developed profile, progressive arc and optimised planform. The latest design of this already classic kite has more stability even at low angles of attack due to a specifically created profile. The progressive arc means that the kite is rock solid in the air but still has a quick turning speed and responsive bar feeling. The low aspect planform ensures that this kite will work in the gustiest of conditions but still delivers constant power and progressive pull.
The 2014 Ozone Access Snowkite has a full Flag-out safety system which allows a beginner to land the kite easily in case of an uncontrolled situation. We still recommend that you land the kite using the webbing brake handle to cleanly stall the kite if conditions permit i.e. when taking a break or finished for the day. This has helped to make the Access a great teaching tool and has become the kite of choice for top snowkite schools across the globe. The design goal of the 2014 Ozone Access Snowkite is to allow total new comers to enjoy this sport on their very first session. We have made this possible by creating an incredibly stable kite which has a constant pull and a large wind range. If you are new to the sport or if you are an occasional snowkiter then the Access is the kite that you need to learn the basics of Snowkiting and progress to find out what this incredible sport can offer.
