It’s one of the easiest kites to set up and it comes with very simple instructions. The kite is very easy to launch and handles well in the light winds.

This is a great traction trainer kite for beginners to practice with as learning how to properly launch and fly the kite through the various levels of the wind window actually helps to create the muscle memory in your body that will greatly benefit you as you begin to use a kiteboarding kite out on the water. In addition, this traction kite is specifically made to be able to fly over water and re-launch itself if it crashes on the water. This benefit adds to the experiential component that new kiteboarders and kitesurfers can take advantage of as they are learning this great sport. Many other traction trainer kites are not made to fly over and interact with water. The more a new kiteboarder can safely practice and feel the interplay of the wind, water, the power kite, and themselves together, the better they will generally be prepared to effectively begin kiteboarding.

The Switchblade is a hybrid bow in terms of its profile. Although not a delta kite it has very narrow wingtips that give it many of the advantages of a delta, particularly ease of water relaunch. Its balance and power delivery make this kite light to the touch and simple to fly. Extremely stable in the air, this kite won’t give you any nasty surprises in lulls and gusts. It’s perfect for the pockets of beginner riders with great stability during misfires.
