What Cabrinha has to say about the 2017 Switchblade
The Switchblade is back, with over 12 years of design and composition refinements. Evolving into an icon, the Switchblade sits at the heart of our kite range where style and performance are seamlessly interwoven. Loved by many for its unique combination of smooth power delivery, unrivaled predictability and uncompromising high end performance, the Switchblade has redefined the notion of what a single kite can achieve. The five strut design has distinct segments that hold the canopy true to its intended shape, increasing the kite’s performance regardless of the wind conditions or angle of attack. The wide ranges of attack angles give the SB the incredibly powerful, predictable pull it is famous for. Unmatched in its power, performance and craftsmanship, the SB unapologetically creates the ultimate kiting experience.

Excellent service and product
Great kite. Great price!
Purchased an 11m from MacKite and A+++ for their customer service.
I'm new to the sport....however the Switchblade seems to be a great all-around kite. I feel comfortable on the kite and am learning to go upwind with it. I received a great price on it and could not be happier!! Also, MacKite has super fast shipping!
Had a quiver of SB's about four years ago...for some reason I went away from them but now am back and couldn't be happier. The 11M SB is a great kite - jump out of the truck and ready to go for anything - boosting, surf, slicks, downwind, upwind, loops, whatever...and relaunches easily. Love this kite and appreciate the great service at MACKiteboarding - great peeps up there.
Simply the best kite ever. Has a ton of low end grunt, turns fast, etc... Quality product from a premium brand. Would also like to mention that dealing with the folks at Mackite is always a pleasure. Great customer service, super fast shipping. Also have some very informative youtube videos.
I'm really impressed with MacKites customer service.
It's not a sales pitch and I can really feel I'm talking to people that kites or at least knows the equipment very well and have me, as a customer and my kiting experience, in mind when helping me choose gear.5 stars!
