Comments:
A great Kite for allrounders, who don't like to fix on one disciplin. The Hatch fits to a wide spectrum of riding styles like Freeride / Freestyle and Wave too. The Barpressure is mediate, but gives the rider a good feedback of the kite and its position. Due to a very easy relaunch, learning new tricks and failure don't take much time and power anymore. Gaastra is known for its great qualitiy. The new Hatch is virtually the perfection of years of developing and testing. Great Kite I had a lot of fun with!
