With the growth and expansion of kitesurfing, land kiting has also become more and more common. If land kiting is more your thing, Kite-Line has what you need with land kites, land kiting boards, buggies, accessories, DVDs, and more. Land kiting is great for kiteboarders who don’t live close to the beach, or do not always have access to large bodies of water. Practice your skills with a land kite board and prepare for your next session on the water. There are also many people who prefer kiting on land instead of water. Maybe it’s the sharks?

Innovations of the OUTLAWThe OUTLAW gives itâ€™s a rider a stable and secure platform to perform his tricks on, without sacrificing handling. With its high turning speed and tight turning radius, climbing up the hill has never been so easy! Power per m2 is at a very high level, meaning you can easily take a size smaller than planned.The OUTLAW incorporates all the newest FLYSURFER technologies and features, bringing 3 new innovations in open-celled kite design to the market!
Total Depower System offers you more power and depower on demand! Creating the best depowering snow and landkite in the industry.
The patented Jet-Flap Technology has been build into the OUTLAW, contributing to a kite which gives
you even more power and stability.Jet-Flaps are a vital part in increasing lift and reducing stalls, enabling you to ride safer.
Auto Bleed Over control, adapted from its closed celled brothers, is a self cleaning system to automatically
remove sand, rain and debris from the kite.
Optimized and thin profiles combined with our Jet-Flap Technology creates a kite which hardly has any backstall, meaning insane pop for its rider combined with a serious portion of lift.
Shorter, Covered and Color coded left and right sides of the bridles make it easy to spot them in the snow. The self stabilizing profile, adopted from our water kites, helps in gusty mountain or inland conditions. Super low stretch materials in combination with an adjusted airfoil, gives the OUTLAW a great light, but direct bar feeling.
The already well known Hard/Soft Steering is continuously adjustable on the OUTLAW allowing riders to adjust according to individual desire. In this way, the rider can decide between extremely heavy or extremely light bar forces even up to 50% lighter than any other kite!
The OUTLAW comes standard with the Front Line Safety and included you will find a Backstall-Line for the OUTLAW bar to activate the Back Stall Safety (BSS), which is preferred by many snow- and landkite users.

“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.
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.

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.

Land kiting can be done on snow or dry land, using a buggy or a land kite board. Land boards are more like amped up skateboards with foot straps, shocks, and larger wheels and trucks. Snow kite boards are basically snowboards, and some people ever strap on their favorite snowboard instead of buying a specific snow kite board. The same standard gear is needed for land and snow kiting as for kitesurfing. You will need a board, kite, harness, bar, and lines in order to get started. Check out our land and snow kiting gear, and pick up everything you need for your next epic kiting adventure.
