High performance all-rounder

Designers goals (manufacturer text)

Hang loose and ride knee highs like they’re overheads. Test your limits on those really big days. Or, just chill and cruise on your trusty surfboard, twintip or skimboard. Without fussing about your kite or the wind. Because you know the new CORE Free is there for you. With its mad surf skills, smooth air-style, and signature CORE ride-ability, you may suspect your new kite has super powers. And we think so too.

This 3 strut, delta bow inspired design lets you be you. A kite that gives you the freedom to surf, play or shred. In the waves. Or on the slick. With the comfort of your favorite sneakers. The precision of an F-15. And waterstarts of a kite half its size. Your first choice for short sessions, wicked weekends or your next round the world adventure. Express yourself with CORE’s newest addition to its legendary Universal+ Series of high performance all-rounders. And experience the awesomeness of this wave, freeride, and hooked-in style master.

Comments:
In a short session the kite feels reliable with a direct responce. Because the presure on the bar is medium/high you'll feel the position of the Kite.
The sweetspot during à jump is easy to find and quitte big. The free has à long hangtime but is hard to get altitude.
A fun and easy kite to ride and learn your basic skills.
THE turning circle is rather big and does'nt accelerate the Kite. Therefore the kite feels stable even in gusty winds.
