Heaps of fun on the beach
Great intro to serious powerfoiling.
- Winds: Medium to Fresh
- Size: 1.5 metre wingspan
- Ages: 10 to adult – ok for beginners
This 1.5m Foil is a great introduction to frameless flying. Ideal for younger flyers to learn to control a power kite, it is very maneavureable and has good pull for a small kite. Flys well in a wide wind range and, unlike it’s adult siblings, it doesn’t get too powerful as the wind picks up. It’s great for basic power jumping (try it on the sand dunes at Fraser Island!) and it’s good for travellers….it fits in your pocket.
Note: The lines with this kite are ‘ordinary’. We do this to keep the price down but if you want much better performance from your Nitro, I’d suggest investing in a set of 150lb Spectra Lines or a pair of 80lb Braided Dacron lines. Phone or email me if you want more details.
Kite Type:Parafoils (or Powerfoils) are just like parasailers. They fly because sewn pockets fill with air to give the kite it’s shape & they steer with bridle lines, just like a rigid dual line kite. They are extremely powerful and definitely not for younger children.
