Entry Level Snow Kites

Entry Level Snow-kiting

Snowkiting is a Blast and Easy to Learn

3 Line Trainer / Beginner kites

scout-snowkiting-lake.jpgOne of our best selling trainer kites and simple to use beginner kites for snowkiting is the HQ Scout 3m, 4m, and 5m.   This kite is a 3-Line kite that comes ready to fly and does not require a harness.  This  kite is one of the least expensive and simplest kites to enter the sport of snowkiting. The Scout is extremely durable and packs a lot of power per square meter.  

Many of our customers who buy this kite continue to use it even after they purchase a full size sheetable kite.

With the Scout you can begin to learn how to snow-kite for under $500.00.  It is great kite for getting started without having to spend a lot of money.

The Scout is easy to fly, super easy to set up, comes ready to fly, and the kite can be flown with a harness or without a harness.

4 Line Sheetable Foil Kites

On a firm snow or hard packed snow surface, a 3m to 4m kite is a great size for lighter kiters and 5m to 8m kites are good sizes for heavier riders that are new to the sport.  

These kites will range $700.00 up for the kite and control bar and an additional $170 to $250 for a good harness. Total investment being $850.00 and up.

With larger size kites, a sheetable 4 line kite is much safer, offers better depower, and often has a much wider wind range.

4 Line Sheetable Inflatable Kite (LEI)

best-roca-snow-kitng.jpgInflatable kites are also excellent snow-kites.  The Ozone Uno, Best Roca, or HQ Ignition are all great kites for those who are new to the sport. These kites also have great low-end power and are more forgiving  than performance kites.  For those looking to learn both kiteboarding and snow-kiting an inflatable kite can be a great choice.  

With Inflatable kites the same kite can be used for both sports; this allows you to build a quiver that will maximize your wind range for both kiteboarding and snowkiting.

Inflateble kites will range from $900 on up for the kite.  The control bar is often sold separate $350 on up.  Then there is the harness ranging from $170 to $250 (for either a seat harness or waist harness).  Total investment $1,350 and up.
