For 2015, we're excited to offer our new "Tucker's Warehouse Special" section. If you think of our site like a treasure map with all sorts of buried wonders, with this section we not only drop you straight on an "x", but dig up the treasure, package it up really nicely, and ship it right to your front door.
In anticipation of the summer season, we have 2014 Liquid Force Envy 12 meters at $999 complete. That includes the kite, kite backpack, bar and lines, and pump. The Envy is a great kite for not only learning, but progressing with. Whether you're looking for your first kite, updating your quiver, or searching for that killer deal to finally get your friends/family into the sport, look no further!
Tucker from MACkite is all Airush Kiteboarding for 2015, and with good reason! In this installment, he reviews the 2015 Airush Lithium. A great user-friendly choice, you can expect a lively kite that excels at almost any style of riding.
The FX! I've had the chance to get on this kite (12m) a couple times now on the snow in low to mid-teens (that refers to both the air temp and wind speed) and found it to be an awesome mix of some of my favorite kites.
It has that great feel of the Drifter, being able to manipulate it deep into the pocket for a downwind rip or zip back into the window for jamming back upwind or loading up for a boost. It also has that nice archy turn that the Chaos has, whipping you around when you want, yet also possesses the comfort of a Switchblade. The bar pressure is great, a little less than most Cab's, and the turning speed is fantastic. It towed me up the dunes with ease as it carries nice power through the turns and let me get some decent glides coming back down. I can't wait to get this kite out in some real boosty conditions - I think it's gonna be a blast.
This could just be my new favorite kite, but still have to go out lit up for the final review. For now, the verdict is... it's a rocker!
With summer just around the corner, we're excited to be kicking off our 2015 lesson season. We at MACkite are thrilled to teach you, your family, and your friends one of the greatest new sports on earth. Our lessons and camps run all year long to give you the best opportunity to learn this incredible sport.
The best way to get started is with a trainer kite, allowing you to hone your flying skills. After that, we offer three different lessons, a Ground School course that provides two hour of kite introduction, a One Day Lesson, offering four hours of instruction, and a Two Day Camp for the most intrepid individuals.
From there, if you would like some one-on-one personal coaching time with an instructor, we do offer private lessons. These lessons are tailored to help you meet your exact goals. Need some coaching on how to stay upwind, master jumping, or do basic tricks? We’ve got you covered. Want to learn to foilboard? Stay tuned...
