Kite

Trainer tube kite for kids and strong winds

Designers goals

We’ve spent years refining the Buzz to create the ultimate “School Kite”. It’s really easy to fly, relaunches automatically and is very predictable in the sky, making it the ultimate kite to learn on. The power is soft and steady and the kite is designed not to surge forwards in gusty winds making it very controllable. The auto relaunch allows for simple hands free relaunch, meaning you spendmore of your time flying the kite and learning the basic skills you need to progress. When riders are learning they crash kites, pure and simple, these kites get a tough life. To ensure they survive season after season we have used the highest quality and most indestructible materials we could find. Crash it, launch it, crash it again the Buzz will keep coming back for more.

Comments:
Under 15 knots the North Buzz is hard to handle, heavy on the bar, big turning circle. The safety system and restart is great.
Use the Buzz in its high end as a storm kite for kids!

For many years we teach in our kitesurf school with the North Busters and Buzz kites. Especial great for kids. The safety en relaunch is great so they can learn by playing. No boost or aggressive lifts so you can make a mistake without the punishment. For adults its a great kite in higher wind. If you reached the point of water starting, heavier guys have to go to a other kite to get the right pull. With the Buzz kites think about a wider board so you have a extra moment before sinking.
Best size to buy? 5.5m!
Great fun, safe start, very playful
