Designers goals (manufacturer text)

If an all-out wave riding session is what you’re going for, a wave-dedicated kite is a must. While the 1st generation of the Skinny Boy was a big success among wave riders, it just laid the foundation for the most thrilling wave kite yet. The 2nd generation Skinny Boy is more direct, more precise and more agile, allowing you to maintain complete control of the kite during turns. The Insta Depower has been improved to enable effortless bottom turns, while the Max Drift feature now provides a great drift not only in classic side-off conditions, but also in on-shore conditions.


INSTA DEPOWER Full depower control is a key element to dynamic wave riding, giving the kitesurfer the ability to balance power, wave maneuverability, and direct feeling with the wave.

MAX DRIFT The power profile keeps the kite stable and in position while riding downwind. This is vital in almost all wave riding conditions.

QUICK TURN All Blade kites are designed to be super reactive and quick turning. This is vital in order to progress as riders and define one's riding style.

PIVOT TURN A large range of depower and quick power generating ability, helps the kite turn on a dime without losing your speed and position on the wave.
