Blade Intros the Skinny Boy

With the new Skinny Boy kite, Blade Kiteboarding joins the growing wave specific kites trend. The guys at Blade brag that creating specific kites for specific disciplines is what they do best, and the new Skinny Boy confirms it.

As you would expect, the Skinny Boy offers stunning drift, turning and depower abilities and performs great in a wide range of conditions. The profile of the kite is strong and it features a new 3-point bridle system with two pulleys for maximum depower. The power profile keeps the kite stable and in position while riding downwind.

The Skinny Boy also provides riders with exceptional low-end, so it can be used in various conditions without hassle. It also uses a Reflex Relaunch feature which forces the wingtips out of the water and to the edge of the window to push it back in the air after a crash.

Quick specs:
• Highly Reactive and Fast Turning
• Insta-Depower Feature
• Efficient Low End Performance
• High-Performance Drift
• Quality Craftsmanship

We bet the Skinny Boy from Blade dominates the waves. You can try it for yourself, but until you do, you can take a look at how it performs in the waves in the clip below. Enjoy!
