The Million Dollar question: Which kite do you need?
Can i choose? YES you can! Why is there such a big variety? Because there are different designs for different goals or styles.
In a rough summary we can spread out the difference in 4 types. Note this is not all! We might work it out even further since the kite industry constantly keeps evolving. So will we!
But that is still a lot to consider, how do i make a choice here? And which brand is the best?
The most important thing here is that you are going to listen to your own personality. Do i like to take any risk? Do i expect a fast relaunch of my kite. In which conditions am i going to kite the most? etc etc etc.
For now if you are a beginner we from test team KiteStars recommend to choose between a Bow/SLE shape or a Hybride/ Delta kite. Do you know you are a quick learner, then search a bit more in the direction of the hybrid shape. This because you will have the longest learning curve on one kite.
Which kite should i choose? There is no one size fit for all. Everyone wants something different in kitesurfing and there are different kites to cover the needs. So testing and learning is the only way to find the perfect kite for you!
