Trainer Kites: the way to start
Stormboarding is pleased to offer the following Trainer Kites. These kites will not only be fun but will boost your skills quickly in a sport that is all about kite skills. You will have fun and save money by progressing faster in your lesson and will have a kite to share with your buddies while you are out riding.
Ozone Imp: small, under $100, fun
The imp is the most compact of the trainer kites at 1.7m. It flies on 2 lines and webbing straps (bar available as extra), is stable and extremely well made. There is enough grunt to learn where the power zone is yet is small enough to share with smaller members of the family (we taught a 5yr old to fly it)! $89 or $139 with bar.
GaastraTrainer 3m: first snowkite at great value
Great value for a first kite. The 3m, on hard pack and in breeze, will be your first snowkite to ride with and both kites will show you the way to power. It is a 2 line kite and come with bar, safety leash and bag. 3m: $215.
Ozone Samurai 2m/3m+: re-launch, power adjustment
The new Samurai is the top of the line in trainer kites and goes up the range in sizes (to 7.2m) as a great snow and landkite. It is a fixed 4 line kite which means that there is a re-launch/brake line making relaunch very easy and giving the pilot opporunity to adjust the power of the kite (though this is different to a chicken loop). The 3m has plenty of pull as a first/heavy air snowkite. 2m: $362 and 3m: $445
