3 Strut, Hybrid design, Sleek wing tips, Draft forward profile

The Contra is a three strut light wind kite, designed to optimize low-end power while retaining the finesse that keeps this kite fun to fly. The high aspect ratio maximizes power production and makes generating power and speed a snap. Our trademark depower-on-demand makes managing this power effortless, allowing it to execute sharp and precise turns. Tuned to deliver the type of performance that will widen the scope of what you can do in light winds, the Contra has the power to get you up and riding when the winds are barely showing signs on the water. For 2017 we added pure profile panels to and brought the struts closer to the center to increase canopy support.


  • Perfect lightwind extension to your quiver
  • Pure Profile Panels for a better supported canopy
  • Easy park and ride power
  • Featherweight control
  • Works well with any board in your quiver
  • Easy relaunch

I've used it only once and with a surfboard NKB Wam one strapped and in low wind conditions about 14knots.
