The Taina is Star Kiteboarding's premier kite. From waves, freeride, and entry-level kiteboarding...This kite can handle just about any condition you would like to kite in.
You can fly this kite aggressively to experience lofty jumps and quick carves on a wave or you can cruise and "mow the lawn" if you will like to have a comfortable ride.
The profile and shape of this kite create a kite that is difficult to stall and re-launches effortlessly. Beginners will find this kite very safe and easy to use.
You can trust that the Taina will withstand a beating. The Taina was put to the test in Cabarete's strong winds and heavy shore breaks.
The 9th generation Taina comes with a kite bag and repair kit.
Combine this kite with the Elite Bar V4 and you will have an awesome experience!
