Kitewing Rage 55+ – windsurfing for landlubbers


Kitewing Rage 55+. This new ‘wing’ is a pretty scary piece of kit. Just 195cm in transport mode, it unfurls to a big 5 sq mtr handheld carbon composite kite which you can use with your skis, skates, snow or skateboards etc. Clip on the groovy MP3 playa, super shades and a bit of sunscreen, and career along the land route of your choice. Check out this video to get an idea of the potential for self damage you can expect with 60+ mph and 40 metre jumps. $1,360.00.

 Kitewing is a wing shaped kite. Many people call it “the wing” for short, just because of its shape. You can use Kitewing with your skis, snowboard, mountainboard, ice skates or in-line skates etc. Many say it is like a mix of kite surfing and wind surfing. Most riders learn to cruise with the wing in half an hour. At the same time there seems to be no limit to the amazing jumps and tricks that are being developed by many keen riders around the globe at the moment: Speeds up to 100 km/h (62 mp/h) and 5 m high, 40 m long jumps on flat surface are not unusual.

  • Ummm, so what are the measurements in inches and square feet? Leave metric for the rest of the world. Only scientists use it here…
