Eleveight has officially launched their 2019 kites. We have a bunch of 2019 models in stock but there is high demand for these amazing new kites so be sure to get your order in before they are gone. We also still have a very small number of 2018 new and demo kites on sale but they are going fast also. Here are some videos of our friend Kevin Wade from Eleveight as he reviews and summarizes the features of the new models. Take it away Kevin:
We are stoked to be the only dealer in Eastern Canada to offer the hottest new kiteboarding brand; Eleveight. Eleveight was founded by passionate watersports professionals who had worked in the industry since its beginning and wanted to bring all the skills and experience they had into making the most advanced kites and kiteboarding products in the market today. The result is a super clean line with kites that are suited for a variety of riding styles and conditions that offer effortless steering, incredible boosting, and stable drifting. Another example of their innovation is with regards to their CS Control bar that let's you click in the chicken loop and go without priming or fussing with the release mechanism.
As a welcome special, we are offering a free CS Control bar when you purchase any FS Kite and a Process twin tip board, but hurry, supplies are limited and going fast and the promotion ends Nov.04.2017.

We are happy to announce that we now carry HQ PowerKites. HQ is one of the original names in foil kites and they have been around since before Kiteboarding was a thing. Ironically HQ was late to the game to make Kiteboarding specific kites but they have since made up for lost time with some great models. We are in the process of updating our site with their full product range but for now we wanted to get their trainer kites up in our store HERE. Summer is in full swing and if you want to get into kiteboarding or are just looking for a fun kite to fly at the beach or the park, HQ makes arguably the best trainer kites out there. Read on for a quick INTRO TO KITES and KITING and how to select the perfect TRAINER KITE for you. HQ Kites are fun on their own and not just for kiting, and you probably have seen them at your local beach.
What are TRAINER KITES:
HQ makes arguably the BEST trainers in the world. They come in a diverse line up so I thought I'd summarize the range to help you select.
80% of the time I recommend the RUSH V PRO as the initial 2 line trainer for land use. If you live near a giant shallow water area then using a trainer in the water is fun, in which case I would then recommend the Hydra II which is the same as the RUSH V PRO but closed cell. These are both 2/3 line models and are the place to start.
The next step in your progression is a small 4 line LEI or FOIL trainer. BUT this adds a lot of power and technique and means you are now physically strapped into your kite ... so I recommend taking lessons at this point and not trying it on your own first. At the end of the lessons you will not even need to purchase a 4 line trainer. Also, many people have been hurt skipping steps on their journey towards learning to kiteboard, If you want to kite safely do it the right way, start with a 2 line trainer and take lessons.
