Back on snow

Feels good

Back from several weeks in Maui, it feels good to ride some snow.  Luckily I flew back home during the best snowkite week of the whole winter.

Fence Work

I tried to get this shot last year several times, although there was never enough snow, the landing of this jump is directly on the frozen lake, which often is pure ice. For several days in a row, there was a good 10 inches of snow on the landing.

SS Raptor

Recently I’ve been riding the Slingshot Raptor, what an amazing 5 struts kite.  Very stable, intuitive with great boost.  Click Here to learn more about the Raptor.


Last season I mostly snowkited with skis, there was a major lack of snow in Montreal, on hardpack skis ends up being the wisest pick.

The redesign of Liquid Force Wow wave kite

How much did the wow v4 design change from the wow v3 ?


What Changed?

Here is a list of the key changes on the Wow v4 compared to the Wow v3

For the WOW v4, we lengthed the wingtip to help the kite handle more rear line tension and more aggressive use of the profile in lightwind.  You can now ride a slightly smaller kite in the wave and focus on your riding.  The Raw power of the kite hasn’t changed,  but it’s now possible to juice more power out of each size.  

Ultra high-quality Teijin Triple Ripstop adds stiffness in the overall canopy profile and recuses flutter and canopy distortion for better airflow throughout the profile of the kite.  Mixed with this our standard strut construction where the canopy connects on TOP of the strut, it reduces the canopy wrinkles around the struts to Leading Edge connections.  

We redesigned the kite arc completely, giving it a boxy feel, especially in the wingtips.  What that does, it maximizes the direct exposed horizontal canopy profile in the center of the kite for raw kite power and optimizes the vertical canopy profile in the wingtip for power and quickness throughout the kite turn radius.  The kite turns even quicker with this boxey arc.

Fall Sessions

Fall Sessions

The colors, the smells, the cold.

Sessioning through fall season is very special.  The excessive warmth that your blood keeps pumping through your vain long after your wetsuit is off and you’re wrapped in a puffy jacket.

Fall season is usually when I realize that yet an entire year just flew by….
