It’s already been a magnificent start to 2017 and we’re proud to share with you the great things that have been going down across the globe with our brand and team riders. The much anticipated ACE is finally available, a light wind foil kite for intermediate to advanced riders who value performance above all else. Want to find out more? Designer Kari Eisenhut shares all the details on our blog. It was a dual to the end at the Red Bull King of The Air 2017, as 8000 spectators watched Aaron Hadlow, Ruben Lenten and Nick Jacobsen battle it out to the end. Only a few days after the KOTA, team riders were gearing up for the first stop on the KPL in Palawan, Philippines. With perfect conditions and world class features, it was a show of park riding at its best and our riders certainly made their mark. Reno Romeu had the amazing opportunity to shoot the official marketing campaign for the all-new BMW 5 Series Touring in San Francisco. Craig and Colleen will be joining the Dorado Kite Experience in Puerto Rico, and there’s new tricks up and available for your enjoyment on the North Kiteboarding experience.
The New ACE is here!

An inside view from ACE designer - Kari Eisenhut
“We are very happy with the results of the ACE. We searched for the maximum efficiency which a kite could offer for flying in very little winds: Light weight construction, maximum lift, huge power and de-power capability.” - Kari
