Course Description A-1 *Carry and set up the lines and kite *Determine the wind direction and upwind and downwind (windward, leeward). *Pilot a small kite (inflatable, stunt kite, foil ) on the wind window edge and maintain it close to the ground. *Know how to stop the kite power in case of problem by releasing the bar. Be aware that the kite leash must be worn at all times, before kite launching and until landing.
B-1 *Be aware of the area where the kite can fall down wind to the pilot. *Recover the kite on land. *Position the kite on request from 9 to 3 oclock on the wind window edge. *Launch a kite with an assistant and choose the right angle to the wind. *Pilot the kite in the power area without crashing it. *Twist and untwist the lines while the kite flies. *Recover a kite and secure it on land. *Land a kite with the help of an assistant.
C-1 *Pilot a kite hooked to the harness. *Pilot hooked to the harness with one hand. *Activate the harness release system or quick release located on a leader line.
D-1 *Perform a downwind course by body dragging and using the power of the kite.
E-1 *Relaunch a kite from the water. *Wind the lines in the water and recover the kite. *Perform a self-rescue in deep water. *Launch a kite alone on land. *Identify potential wind obstacles creating lift or down draft and be able to define the wind direction. Understand that practice with onshore wind is dangerous.
With KiteboardingUK one day course you will also get the chance to kiteboard for the first time, Using a directional or twin tip you will take your first water starts and hopefully your first ride. At the end of the course you will be a Kiteboarder level 1
The Crossbow, now in its 7th edition sits at the top of the list as being the most efficient kite in our range. Its improved light wind performance can be attributed in part to its new lighter weight design. Weve reduced the number of struts and have distributed the Dacron sparingly and more efficiently. Thus earning its new designation as the Crossbow LW (Light Weight). The Crossbows bow kite design is another factor in providing a wide wind range and light wind performance. The bow kite design allows us to produce a high aspect kite with a flatter arc which delivers more power per square meter than a non bow kite. This power is easily controlled by our trademark Depower on Demand. this allows the rider to precisely control the power of the kite. Whether you are serious about racing or serious about having as much fun as possible in extremely light winds, the Crossbow LW delivers.
Light Weight 5 strut design Amazing lift and hangtime Excellent upwind ability Largest wind range Variable tuning options Quicklink IDS equipped Sprint
Skeletal Frame All Cabrinha kites are designed and built on a Skeletal Frame foundation. Skeletal frame technology allows us to make a lighter more durable kite by strategically placing the reinforcement weight materials into a framework that surrounds the lighter weight canopy materials.
Pump Our new sprint pump and our all new airlock valve closes the loop on our sprint single point inflation system. the pumps diaphragm has been improved For smoother pumping action and increased longevity. the sprint pumps hose connection now mates perfectly with our all new exclusive airlock two way valve without the need For an adapter.
Airlock The all new Airlock improves on the industrys best inflation / deflation valve. The new Airlock completes our Sprint single point inflation system. The new one way valve allows for a higher volume of air to pass through it. Airlock 2 has a new coaxial type of hose attachment which now does not require an adapter to work with our new Sprint pump. Just attach the hose directly to the valve with a quick quarter turn.
Sprint Clamps The Sprint clamps which restrict the flow of air out of the struts have been improved for a more positive closure.
Line Manager This year we have included a simple to use line management tool. Each time you wind your lines onto the control bar you can attach the ends of the lines to the line manager in sequence. That way, when its time to reattach your lines they will be free of tangles. Setting up your lines has never been easier.
Bridle Guides We have reduced the size and weight of the stainless steel bridle guide.
