100% WAVE

5 I 6 I 7 I 9 I 12m

The Airush Wave Kite has created a legion of dedicated surf followers through its groundbreaking design, blending a unique combination of forward speed and incredible drifting capabilities. The Wave responds perfectly to rider input and allows you to get into the perfect position on the wave, no matter what the wind conditions.

Refinements in the chord length, wingtips and canopy layout make for a smooth power delivery and fluid steering consistent across the range, while the V3 bridle system maintains even tension throughout the kite enabling perfect steering even when depower and sheeted out.

With the most advanced construction on the market and perfect balance, the Airush Wave takes surf kiting into a new realm.

// Unique planform allows the kite to fly forward in the window when required while sitting back and drifting in the turns.
// Tight turning with minimal power
// Increased LE Diameter in Smaller sizes for greater stability and support
// Aramid Load Frame Technology
// Double Rip Stop Technoforce D2 by Teijin Canopy
// New Oversized SPS valve (Single Point Inflation System)
// All New One Pump System

Features

SLC DESIGN - The Supported Leading Edge c-kite or SLC is dedicated to riders who want everything from a 5 line C-kite in a 4 line format. The SLC concept gives a C-shape arc and squarer wingtips, which delivers great turning and direct response in combination with the bridle that supports the leading edge, great range, depower and relaunching abilities.

V3 Bridle - The V3 bridle system contributes significantly to the feeling and performance of supported leading edge kites, in addition the total depower adds immensely to the safety benefits. The positioning of the bridle attachment points on the LE of the kite, combined with the V pulleys, give a range of movement. The result is steering that is light, but direct enough to feel where your kite is while riding. This also enables the kite to be steered and controlled when the kite is completely de-powered, which is ideal for wave riding.

TECHNOFORCE D2 BY TEIJIN - This premium fabric is used in conjunction with the Aramid Load frame for the ultimate combination of durability and performance. Ongoing testing has highlighted the lowest stretch and highest long-term reliability of any materials available.

Aramid Load Frame - All Team Series kites feature the proven Aramid Load Frame. Aramid, found in bulletproof vests, is strategically placed throughout the kite to create a frame that improves the kites structure and response.

This construction absorbs impact throughout the canopy, reducing the overall load placed on the canopy cloth, by directing load through the Aramid frame high stress periods such impact or wave action. Not only does the frame create a solid structure, but also increases performance. The Aramid Load Frame makes a more solid link throughout the entire kite, which enhances the response from rider to kite.

FMS RATING - Airush introduced FMS rating 6 years ago as the first brand to quantify how much a twintip flexes, instead of the good old “feel” test, which can be very deceptive due to the impact of the length on the overall stiffness. FMS takes into account the boards length and deflection and lower rating indicating a softer board. Softer boards are more suited to freeride, while stiffer boards are more suited to Freestyle.

Tips & Tuning

What Changes were made in the 2015 Wave vs 2014?

Last years Wave kite was such a success that we didn’t want to radically change anything. On the smaller sizes 5,6,7m, we increased the leading edge diameter to make the structure a bit more stable in high and erratic winds. It also helps to keep the kite a bit tamer in high winds and gusty conditions, stops it shooting around the sky radically, needing less attention, leaving you more focused on smacking the lip.

How important are the V3 Bridles?

The V3 bridle is the only way to make a kite have full steering response when it’s completely depowered. Plenty of other kites claim to have this without pulleys, but its pretty clear to see as soon as you push the bar away fully, the kite has almost no response. This is absolutely essential when riding waves while staying in control.
