* Due to COVID, the availability of trainer kites has been extremely scarce! We do have Ozone Iginitions available. We will keep you updated as more kites become available.
Entry Level Kiteboarding Kites
Which Beginner or Entry-Level Kiteboarding Kite?
** Note there is a chart below that summarizes some of the features of each kite **
A beginner kite can mean different things to different people. Let's break these kites into four different groups based on conversations we have had with our customers and their interests.
Group #1 - I don't know much...
but I would like to buy a practice kite that rigs and flies like a full-size kite. I would like to learn flying skills on land but also get in the water and try some things.

Group #2 - I took lessons but I am not ready for a full size kite yet...
I don't want a little trainer kite. I want to practice and get my flying skills down and I want to practice water relaunch the same as the full-size kites. I also want to body drag and practice body dragging up-wind. And, if I could practice getting up on a board, that would be a bonus. I am not planning on getting into the sport right away. It may be 6 months or a year from now, but when I do, I would like to be ready.
Group #3 - I am ready to dive in - Game On!
Yes, I've taken lessons and I'm ready to invest in the full package. I'm on a dedicated track to learn kiteboarding.
Kites to consider: Eleveight RS - Freeride / Do all Kite (or other kites in this class)
Group #4 - I have a daughter, son, wife, husband, or friend...
that will be flying this kite. I would like a 4-line depower kite that is going to fly well in lighter to moderate winds that they can get up and riding on. But, I don't want the kite to be too large or overpowering. It needs to be simple and easy to learn with.
These are just a few general considerations. A person's weight, background, wind conditions, and environment will all play a role in the type of kite and the size of the kite you will choose.
