Its superb flight characteristics and 3rd line safety make the Skim perfect to learn the basics in full control and confidence.

The Skim has a big wind range which makes it an excellent kite to make quick progression with. It flies very easy going in light winds, so beginners feel safe and confident flying it, but it also performs very well in high winds, where the Skim is easily powerful enough for some body dragging fun.

Safe & easy

Easy controls through the controlbar with safety leash

The third line on the Skim has a double function. Firstly it connects the trailing edge of the canopy to a wrist strap, so when you let go of the bar the kite will completely depower and drop to the ground. Its second function is to help you relaunch when the kite is nose down on the ground. To make your life easy, the lines have been pre-attached.

Great stability

The Skim is very stable and predictable for fast progression.

The Skim is very easy to fly in its lower wind range, it responds exceptionally well to steering input and turns smoothly. As the Skim is flown on a bar, the chance of over-steering the kite is reduced to zero. Its specially designed profiles ensure the perfect balance between speed & control and challenge & ease.
