Great Technology - Very Powerful

DH - 2/24/2014

I currently have an 11m Switchblade that is amazing in 14-18t winds, but hated getting the stiff-arm from my SB when the winds were at the low end of that kite (11-12kts). I can get it to ride, but it requires a lot of rider input and I sometimes got myself stuck when the winds would calm to just below 10kts. Nothing worse than floating around waiting for them to pick up so you can relaunch! So to fix this issue, I demoed the 15m Contra this past winter in Puerto Rico. Wow what an amazing piece of low wind kiting technology. The kite when pumped up looks intimidating. HUGE kite. The winds were about 8-10kts when we pumped her up and I was telling myself "no way will this thing fly with power". Boy was I wrong... amazingly easy launch!! I guess the negativity came from so many attempts to fly my 11m SB in 10-12 kt winds. The Contra shot right up there and was stable in 10kts of wind! I couldn't believe it. Then on the board: First power stroke it was amazing... popped right up and plained out fast and got upwind. Effortless handling with the X1 overdrive bar. Easy to get upwind and the best part of this kite is: You can use your favorite board in low wind conditions! You don't need to crack out the low wind big guy. If you are an avid kiter and want a kite that will get you going in 8-12kt winds... check out the Contra for sure. Its pricey, but if Kiting is your go to hobby and you want to be able to ride more days, its worth the investment. Cant wait until I get my new one delivered!
