Have you ever wondered what it’s like to sail across the water, planing faster than the wind?
2013 Course Racing World Champion Florian Gruber and No.1 IKA rank Riccardo Lecesse were invited to the Ozone Kites HQ of Raglan, New Zealand, to try out and shoot with the new Chrono and Edge kites.
We had set aside a week of wind chasing – but this time it was different to most kitesurfing trips, as it was all about chasing light wind! The new Chrono has really opened our eyes to what is possible even in the lightest of breeze, and accompanied with the refinement of the Edge together these kites pack a powerful punch to any performance kiters quiver; whether on a twin tip, race board or foil board.
The crew were able to discover new kiting locations and witness New Zealand’s unique weather and scenery. During the journey south the guys also scored fun freeride sessions boosting huge on the Edge!
Check out the video of our trip – full of mind blowing scenery and images, sit back and enjoy watching these guys froth on being out there in the water day by day, enjoying kiteboarding as much as possible no matter the wind or weather conditions.
We hope you can share the same stoke out on the water anytime anywhere, be it in board shorts in the tropics or drysuits on mountain lakes, there is always a puff of wind somewhere to ride…
