The all-new BANDIT-S, a dedicated strapless and surf kite, the choice of champions and riders who truly value surfing with a kite.
Effortless maneuverability: steer the kite exactly where you want it
Excellent drift: Focus on your surfing, not on the kite
Power on demand: Switch it off and re-engage it with fingertip control
Fantastic stability: Enjoy a smooth ride whatever the conditions
Predictable: The BANDIT-S responds immediately to every rider input
Surfing with a kite presents a considerable challenge to the rider, the ocean is ever-changing and moves fast, the wind is a force in constant motion and all the while you need to control the kite and the board to maximize every second of the wave. Our goal with the BANDIT-S was to create a kite that allowed the rider to focus on riding the wave and not worry about the kite.
The bar pressure on the BANDIT-S is very light; you never really feel the kite pulling or any fatigue on the arms. With just small input from your fingertips, you can engage the incredibly responsive steering. The leading edge is thinner, allowing the kite to twist, and the wingtip shape further enhances the response. This is perfect for onshore riding conditions where you need to steer the kite around the wave as you ride. The turn is pivotal, meaning you can quickly redirect the kite for a powerful bottom turn, allowing you to follow your surfing lines with precision.
Power is nothing without control; when you push the bar out on the BANDIT-S, you can completely dump everything in the kite.
