Special made wave kite

Designers goals

BWS head Kite & Product designer - Dano See is a perfectionist and this shows in every detail of the Noise Pro. He has produced a wave riding Kite in a league of its own. Unmatched down the line Drift, 'Consistent Drive' custom wingtip design and new direct rear line steering enhances rider feedback but eliminates stalling in any part of the wind window especially on the up stroke.

With the light 3 strut design reducing weight, refined curve through the profile and a super short no tangle bridle configuration offering rock solid rider stability when you need it most while riding waves.
All this with a super smooth delivery and faster air speed so your riding your Surfboard with enhanced forward momentum.

The Noise Pro’s overall simplicity lets you focus on riding the wave not the kite which makes this the most versatile wave riding tool on the Surf/Kite market to date.

This is why I love testing. One kite can solve your problem. We have a lot of onshore winds on our coast. I am used to watch my kite. Not today. With the Noise Pro a problem was solved. Very stable and great drift. My kite didn't fly out of my wind window. Didn't had to steer it like crazy. Just park and ride. Good feedback, short de-power stroke a bit slower but it didn't mind. Fast enough for quick turns. The most important ingredients for a great wave session was there.
Love to have a kite in my hands that's thought true with well balanced wave characteristics. Well done BWSurf.

ive been riding bws since the start and the kites just keep evolving, my 8 m pro is a joy to ride, i ride in vietnam, mushy conditions to nice clean waves, usually sideshore to side on and onshore conditions, i love the way i can ride a wave and go no handed down the face and the kite just sits and drifts in the window. i smashed the kite in the waves and have just realeased everything, it washes into the shore line and flips over waiting to relaunch as soon as i sort my line s out.
great kite easy to use, i also ride a landboard on the beach and it boosts just fine. cheers bws

The stability and drift of this kite is simply awesome - which makes it ace for waves. You can concentrate on the wave and don't think about the kite too much - when you need the power - just sheet in... Construction is bomb proof - I had it through some serious on Maui with no problems - but you really have mess it up to drop the kite in the water - it wants to fly and usually just sits there until you get some tension in the lines. The bar is top notch - but be sure to keep sand out of the power lines if you have an older bar without the plastic cover. Pump valve is to small/narrow which makes pumping a longer affair...
Those accustomed to the sick low end of the Noise Classic need to re-think and go up one size - as these kites are smaller/less powerful for their size. This is no problem as the pro 10 turns like the classic 8...

What we like:
The best thing about the Noise Pro is that it delivers outstanding stability in the waves. The BWS team are intent on creating a kite that let’s you focus on riding the wave and not on the kite and it shows with the Noise Pro. The beefed up leading edge and struts help with stability in the air and the simple 3-strut design allows the kite to drift downwind really well.

What we don’t like:
If you are used to sizing your BWS kites smaller, you will need to readjust your scale as the Noise Pro runs true to size so an 8m really is an 8m. The regular 9mm inflate valve works a treat but the Noise Pro has a larger leading edge and struts than most other kites so it would be nice to see some kind of larger valve to speed up the pumping up process!

Why you want the Noise Pro:
Because you want unmatched performance for kitesurfing in the waves. Although the Noise Pro is branded a surf kite, don’t be mislead. This kite performs with the best kites out there in a wide range of conditions. The stability that makes this kite excel in the waves also makes it a killer option for riders looking for an all round kite.

Flow is the word for this Noise Pro. Flying this kite is pure enjoyment. Stable, great drift and fast enough for the typical brown mushy swell in Holland. The new Noise Pro is a extension piece of your body and a part of your movement. Balanced out so it's exactly right for all disciplines of wave riding. Partner up with the Noise Pro gives you that wave riding flow!
