Instructor's Choice Kiteboarding Package
Instructor's Choice Kiteboarding Package
This package comes 100% complete, including:
- Bar, lines, & safety leash
- Board, fins, foot straps & pads
- Optional harness
- Optional flotation vest
The aim of the Instructor's Choice package is to provide everything you need to get out on the water and ride, with the gear being beginner friendly and affordable. With this latest pairing, we have added the Slingshot RPM kite. Over the years, Slingshot has refined the RPM kite to deliver a stable, fast, easy-to-use kite that will appeal to beginner and intermediate kiteboarders alike.
We crafted this package to not only give the new kiter the tools for success, but gear that will allow them to continue to progress well after that first year. Even better, if you want the best deal in the kiteboarding industry, you won’t find a better price, especially for the quality of the gear.
For years, the RPM was fine-tuned to load, pop and go slack in the air before re-engaging. Slingshot had the tuning down to a science, and it helped give multiple freestyle world champions their gold medals. Their mission with the 2019 RPM was to change that - not to eliminate anything - but to shift the kite’s tuning to where we see the sport shifting. At the level the RPM is designed for that means bigger, better, loftier in-air performance. From slack to soar, the 2019 RPM is the world’s go-to kite for versatile freeride performance.
- Modified Open-C: Improved adjustments to power, structural ability, hangtime, and control in the air.
- FLYLINE Bridle: Combines both pulley and bungee in a new configuration that results in a faster, higher-flying, more powerful RPM than ever before.
- LoadShift: In what is best described as ‘Load Shift’ the FlyLine bridle transfers power and load actively from wingtip-to-wingtip as it flies.
- World-class unhooked performance.
- Hybrid Open-C shape delivers big boosts and smooth, predictable loops.
The Hero is designed to take riders from their first reaches and beyond in this user-friendly freeride board. Not easily outgrown—nor is it only for beginners—the high flex Hero provides a smooth, forgiving ride and on-demand control that even the most experienced kiters love.
Sizes: 135 x 42cm, 140 x 43cm
The Ignition will spark your love for kiteboarding. This all-level twin tip will boost your skills to the next level. Eleveight incorporated leading technology into the construction, making it their most comfortable and efficient ride.
Sizes: 150 x 46cm
Delivering outstanding performance, the RIOT 6 represents the perfect match for experienced riders. The refined lower outline offers more freedom of movement than ever before and the super smooth Hyperfoam make this harness the ultimate wave shredding companion. The RIOT (flex index 6)* is one of the softer harnesses of our range.
The Empax Vest is designed to integrate comfortably with your harness to provide buoyancy and impact protection without inhibiting range of motion or harness function. The paneling and no-slip Wind Skin waist help lock your harness in place and prevent it from riding up. The vest features a strategic layout of 20mm foam panels that provide flotation and impact protection in critical areas, with a feel that lets you forget you’re even wearing it.
This CE-approved front-zip vest provides all of the protection needed during your kite session. The M-Flex and JAKO neoprene construction allow for maximum flexibility and comfort. The Clash Foam keeps the more vulnerable parts of your body safe upon impact.
Select your kite size, kiteboard, harness, and remember to indicate what color you want in the colors below. Made all of your choices? Good - it looks like you're just about ready to hit the water. Congratulations on your new gear, and welcome to the sport. We can almost guarantee it is going to change your life.
This gear is awesome for beginners, the bar is super comfortable, the kite is smooth for choppy weather and the board is perfect and light!
I bought the package in 2017 but still haven't used it much (we have 4 kids). I really like it though. Kite is beautiful in the air and the board is great. For the price it is a great deal. In hindsight, I probably should have bought the upgraded beginner kit, but what I've got is great. The service was fantastic. They shipped the wrong size lifevest and Jake just sent me another one with no hesitation within a week. Amazing service. They are my first stop when shopping for future kite equipment.
I'm a newbie but learning quickly-riding up wind, powered jumps and trying back rolls. I've been out half a dozen times and am fairly satisfied with all of the gear. The 2017 NV 12m feels responsive and is pretty easy to relaunch. I feel very comfortable with the ease of the safety system. I won't say much more than that bc I'm still learning to properly tune the kite. The mission control bar is super clean and comfortable. The chicken loop has come unhooked 3 times though, I think as a byproduct of the rotating donkey dick. Best guess is that when I'm crouched in the water during a relaunch, the donkey dick is pushed out of the loop when it makes contact with my waist. The Ion riot harness is fine although it does ride up often. The other day the inner velcro strap came undone which was a pain to fix on the water. The WMFG pump works as expected-fully pumped in under 30 secs. The LF Drive 143 feels great under my feet. I'm 5'7' and the narrowest stance felt very wide initially but after riding it, it feels comfortable. The LF Phase straps are good starter pads but will upgrade eventually to more stable feeling pads.
really nice kite. the single strut makes it light and its a great kite for a less advanced kiter in lighter air. Im sure its great for more advanced as well. I especially like the really big difference between fully powered and depowered. that made it really easy to use in a wide range of winds. the depower takes almost all the power away if the wind blows up while your out there. Yet fully powered provides plenty in light air.
Hey guys it's juan here from Canada Winnipeg, Manitoba haha I really like the package I got from you guys the colours of the kite are dead on exactly what I wanted the harness is sikkk feels super good, haven't got on the board yet but we are getting some winds soon and I can't wait. I thought I had clicked off the safety vest but it's ok I will just have to get it here in Canada
So far I really like the Liquid Force equipment even though I have only used it once. I took a lesson with the new equipment and the instructor thought it was good quality equipment too. Hopefully I will be able to get up and going this Summer on my Liquid Force stuff...
