Vapor II


Inspired by ambition, innovation, and passion, the Airush design team set out to create the most refined performance freeride and freestyle machine.

With a blend of precision steering, high depower, and increased stability, the Vapor III is a versatile performer that merges improved unhooked performance and heightened boosting characteristics making it perfect for aggressive freeride and freestyle riding.

2010 Airush Crest Kite

2010 CREST

Fast through the air and highly responsive, the Crest has been redesigned to make quick turns with less effort offering greater control and performance. A refined canopy profile and shape and a simplified bridle reduce weight and drag making the Crest extremely efficient and stable. Maintaining a strong focus on safety, the Crest offers a significant increase in depower and provides easy relaunch across a wide range of wind conditions.

Featuring iCS Intelligent Canopy Shape technology, the canopy shape is different from the bridle shape, which locks the canopy in place so that when tension is lost in the lines, the canopy opens up increasing the Angle of Attack minimizing the tendency to collapse. This translates into unmatched stability and superior efficiency thanks to a 30% reduction in bridle drag.

2010 Airush Outback Kite


The Outback has been developed for all levels of riders to enjoy the experience of kiting on snow or land. Whether a first time rider or a multi-season veteran, the new Outback offers stability, relaunch ability, depower, and safety into a predictable ram air kite. Designed primarily as an entry-level kite due to its stability and ease of use, the Outback is full of technical features and accommodates all levels of riders looking for an easy to use and stable kite.

By incorporating iCS Intelligent Canopy Shape technology we have been able to increase the stability of the kite as well as improve efficiency and reduce drag giving the rider a forgiving kite that sets the stage for fun.

2010 Airush Generator Kite


The Generator stands alone as the highest performance C-kite. In constant demand by the true C-kite aficionados including our Pro freestyle team and performance wave riders alike, the Generator remains incredibly fast flying and quick turning with a smooth but deliberate power delivery. Predictable and functional, the Generator offers uncompromised C-kite performance in an extremely dynamic and refined kite.

Available with 45cm or 55cm 5 line strap adjustable bar

2010 Airush Varial Kite


After extensive research into the performance characteristics most appreciated by the majority of kite buyers today, we set out with a no-compromise dedication to develop a kite to embody these features while redefining them and establishing new levels of benchmark performance.

A new addition to the Airush Kite family, the Varial sets the new standard in feeling, stability, and performance while enhancing the range, efficiency and lift that riders have come to expect from the new generation kites.

2010 Airush Lithium Kite
2010 Airush Lithium Light Wind Kite
13-15 Lightwind

ability in an agile and responsive kite.


The Lithium combines optimal turning, auto-relaunch, depower and new- school safety features in a kite that is simple, fun, and very easy-to-use. Through it’s innovative delta hybrid design, the Lithium offers refined performance characteristics that appeal to a wide variety of users and styles making it the perfect choice for a beginning rider or a seasoned pro.

The Lithium’s 4 strut canopy creates a stable and efficient power delivery while the leading edge has just the right about of sweep allowing for effortless auto-relaunch, pivotal turns and a C-oriented feel on the bar. The V3 Bridle System supports the arc and gives you a refined; yet direct feel when sheeting and provides full depower security. Featuring FrameTech construction and general reinforcements
throughout, the Lithium offers the full package of simplicity, safety, and performance.

Advance Kaiman 3

Advance team spent the last 12months optimizing and developing the Kaiman.
The third model of the Kaiman is already crossing the skies!

Picture 5

In performances the wing has a top speed of flight thanks to the reduction of the aerodynamic resistance form, which will be translated into a greater windward and a range increase in high wind, despite the range in low wind is uncharged.

In turn the Kaiman in large measure has improved in speed from the second half of 360°in fact, in loop, it maintains the same rotation speed without slowing down. We have further cleaned the wing profile and so we have avoided bad deformation for some phases in flight increasing instead others that help the turn and the incident change in particular conditions.

Improved bridal system distribution of tension and its scaling according to the size of wing. Moving forward the profile, and decrease of the camber.

Optimization and development of the skeleton, with redesign of all sections to optimize the pressures with the use of one pump system.

"This movie is a highlight clip of my recent week in Bali shooting for the Ben Wilson Kitesurf Accelerator Camp.
What an amazing week! The guys learned from the master and “kited” their guts out and I shot the shit out it!! From my perspective the location provided a smorgasbord of exciting and stunning visuals. The consensus from the camp participants was that it was an invaluable learning experience. Much Bintang was consumed!"

KPWT Dunkerque 2009 - Day 5

It was an exciting day on the KPWT Dunkerque Kitesurf Pro 2009 with some exceptional Freestyle action.
The wind was averaging 16 knots, South West on low tide at 14h00. The sun was out, not a cloud in sight and the spectators were on the beach ready to enjoy the kitesurfing action!

The highly anticipated heat between Christophe Tak and Jesse Richman started off proceedings and what a heat it was.
Tak began with a stylish low mobe switch followed by a 313. Jesse looked to be feeling the pressure a little, but landed a smooth double s-bend handlepass that seemed to settle his nerves. He went on to a front mobe, slim chance and blind judge 3 with excellent kite position and good style. Unfortunately today looked to be Tak’s and he went through the motions, performing an array of tricks including a back mobe 5, blind judge 3 and a tomahawk. He progressed into the quarterfinals to face Michael Shitzhofer. (AUS, JN). His dream of reaching his first semi final on the KPWT was ended though by Shitzhofer, who was again looking strong in his heats.

For the women, Gisela Pulido (SPA, AIRUSH) faced Sarah Demdoum (FRA, CABRINHA) in the first quarterfinal.
Gisela looked comfortable and seemed to have rested her knee well after her injury in Germany. She flew through Sarah, who just never seemed to settle in. I think the nail in the coffin for Sarah was an S-Bend Handlepass and a huge 360 by Gisela near the end of the heat. She will go on to face Ania Grzelinska (POL, NORTH) in the first semi final for the ladies single elimination.

At 16h00 conditions got really good and wind had picked up to over 20 knots. The semi final between Vincent Tiger and Shitzhofer looked as if they were both overpowered on their 10meter kites! Getting huge air and strong manoeuvres to entertain the many spectators that had come down to the beach to enjoy the festivities and the kitesurfing!

The other side of the women’s table saw Kari Schibevaag (NOR, OZONE) up against Hannah Whiteley (UK, JN). They both used the wind well to perform a cool board-off each, but Kari landed a very stylish S-Bend to blind that looked to win her the heat, and into her first KPWT Freestyle Final against Gisela Pulido. Gisela again proved too strong for the ladies within the freestyle discipline and took the ladies single elimination in Dunkerque.

The men’s final was between Peter Tyukjevich (RUS, FLEXIFOIL) and Michael Shitzhofer (AUS,JN).
Peter had been consistently strong throughout his heats, knocking out Leander Vyvey in the quarter-finals. His trick of the day must have been a front mobe with a very late rotation and an old school trick that looked to be 5 rotations!
The final was an absolute spectacle between two world-class competitors! Both with different styles, but maintained excellent kite positions when going through the manoeuvres that they thought were enough to take the title here in France.

After the single elimination was completed, the race director decided to take advantage of the good wind and run the juniors division. The results for this will be released tomorrow and lets hope we get another day with good wind!

Women Single Elimination:
1. Gisela Pulido (SPA, AIRUSH)
2. Kari Schibevaag (NOR, OZONE)
3. Ania Grzelinska (POL, NORTH)

Men Single Elimination:
1. Peter Tyukjevich (RUS, FLEXIFOIL)
2. Michael Schitzhofer (AUS, JN)
3. Steve Verelest (BEL, BEST)
