Designer goals (manufacturer text)

For some, it is all about the waves. A three dimensional playground to explore and experiment on. And to get the most out of your wave session, we’ve built the Section. A purebred wave kite with 3 struts, lightweight construction, perfect balance and super quick reflexes. A kite that stays put while you ride those super fast waves. A kite that doesn’t stall out when you’re toeside on a wind driven 10 footer. A kite for all you strapped and strapless wave junkies that will drive hours for that magical wave session.

You know who you are. You live for waves. Nothing else matters. We made the new CORE Section just for you. A dedicated wave kite for down-the-liners. Off-the-lippers. And in-the-tubers.

Had this kite for about 2 months and had about 10+ sessions with it. Have a 10m GTS 3 so I needed a smaller kite for my wave riding. I have the same bar and lines for both kites.

Still learning to use a fast kite but this one makes it easy for you. Great up wind and drift. Very fast turning and stability is amazing. Really in love with this kite, don´t want to use my 10m ever again.

Bar pressure is what you expect of a Core, the best feeling. Used a North Neo in comparison and bar pressure is way better on the Section as is this kites stability.

At the end its what makes u feel better, so I would recommend this kite for waveriders. Test it and you will see.

Had a short session with the new Core Section 7m with 18m lines. The kite feel of the Section is soft, fast reaction and tip turning. Most kites lose a lot of performance on 18m lines. The Section was still stable and most surprisingly had a great upwind performance even in underpowered gusts.
I have to try the section on longer lines, but I had to share this first Section kitefeel. Looks promising!

Core Section comes in a lot of sizes so please share your Core Section product experience. Every input is welcome to gather the best overall impression.
