Open cell depower snow / land kite

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

The brand new ESKIMO combines all the strengths of the previous generations of GIN foil kites that have created GIN KITEBOARDINGs success on the snow: the INUIT, the YETI and of course the ESKIMO!
Dedicated to discerning riders who are looking for a top quality kite with performance and accessible handling, the ESKIMO is a very versatile kite for different riders and conditions:

  • Backcountry sessions exploring new terrain
  • Pure freestyle sessions
  • Easy freeride sessions for all levels of riders



The ESKIMO stays incredibly stable in the air in all situations:
• Gusty winds during hard freeride sessions
• Light wind sessions
• Less experienced riders with low speed and a fully powered bar


The high performance of the ESKIMO gives you a maximum of precision.
• Easy upwind performances
• Fast and precise turn in any wind conditions
• Great lift and hang time


Most snowkite freestyle riders prefer a tube kite over a foil kite nowadays, so we were able to focus more on the comfort, safety and accessibility of the ESKIMO. The ESKIMO will excite snowkiters of all levels, from extreme mountain backcountry riders to free riders cruising the flat spots.


The handling of the ESKIMO is intuitive and precise
• Just the right amount of bar pressure for good feedback and long tireless sessions
• Fast turning speed
• Great upwind performance


• Thanks to the new bridle system the ESKIMO benefits from a high depower in all situations
• As a result of the 5th line: 100% depower after releasing the QR
