The Radsail EVO Trainer Power Kite is a downsized version of more powerful kites and is the best choice trainer kite for complete novices looking to progress onto kite board sports such as kitesurfing or kite landboading.

The Radsail EVO Trainer Power kite is supplied ready to fly with a simple 2 line control bar system with a wrist leash safety system, enabling novices to familiarise themselves with the flying techniques associated with more complex control bar kites such as those used for kite surfing or kite landboarding. The power of the kite can be released in an instant by letting go of the control bar, causing the kite to fall from the sky whilst still connected to the safety wrist leash.

If you're planning on taking kite surf lessons or are looking to improve your confidence, the Radsail EVO Power Kite is an ideal purchase and will significantly enhance your kite control skills, making progression faster and easier.

This is 70 to 80 pounds everywhere else! Bagged myself a bargain for teaching others how to fly power kites. Comes with a 2 line bar not handles. Ideal for beginers and children alike. Can draw a lot of power though so under supervision is best.

Great summer fun for everyone!!!!

Hi I’m looking for a kite for my 12 old son, one that he could train on, and be able to jump and hang on if that’s the correct term. I understand that you can get 2 & 4 lead kites and in different sizes. Not sure which may be the best type for him

4 lines will give you a little more control in "hang time" (prevent you coming back down to earth quite so hard)

The size depends largely on the weight of your son and the wind at the time, 3m is about the biggest I'd suggest anyone get as a first kite - in strong wind it will be a real handful (and strong wind for kiting is not that strong really...) A kite much smaller than that will struggle to get anyone off the ground.

At the risk of stating the obvious, you do realise that kitejumping is *really* dangerous, don't you? In the right wind you can get to 20-30ft air without trying that hard. If you look at the statistics re: chances of surviving a fall from that height, you'll realise you really need to be *pretty good* at kiting before trying this too much.

If you're serious about letting him do this, though, you're going to want to get him a better kite than the one in the OP - look at the more expensive flexifoil kites as a starter (Blade always used to be the standard for these kinds of things) - also bear in mind that the lines provided with smaller, less "performance-minded" power kites are unlikely to be up to supporting your sons weight - and having a line snap in a jump is probably about the quickest way to kill yourself you could think of...

If you're serious..........


Also to add to this excellent information i would highly recommend a lession as not only could you son hurt himself he could also hurt a innocent by-stander which is really bad and it would also get kiting banned on the beach etc which is bad for all experienced kiters. Regards

could not agree more with that i go to saltburn alot, i have a 3m and a 6m and they are more than enough for the winds up there. i have really injured myself alot doing jumps and thats not because i do it wrong or anything its because u are playing with nature. People see the vids and they think its easy and looks really cool, so try to jump first thing, you need to learn the basics. more often than not its hard lol so please wear that saftey gear.

also if he is 12 i would recommend a smaller kite than a 3m, they dont come cheep do the flexifoils (the 1.8 rage, you wont get a blade under 4 m i dont think is over £180 pounds) and you know how kids are like u dont want to be spending lots of money and then him getting bored of it and throwing it out like i said it dont come easy so you want him to learn the basics, it will be hard to learn the basics with a kite that big. Learn the basics now and you wont suffer later.

ok coming from a kighter / buggy rider 2 things i would recomend without covering the other posts.......
first of all any kite shop i mean real kite shops not shopping mall retailers will quite happily take you and son to there flying field to try a couple of kites as said befor they ARE NOT A TOY they will give you and son an hour of the basics for free whilr trying difrent models / sizes i can highly recomend flexi foil there the guys with alot of time in the market and the first to sell kite killers with al there kites (the straps that close the kite down and make it fall to the floor should anything go wrong just let go ) the kite killers do the rest

the guys from the shop will teach you how to rescue the kite if you ditch it (and you will) and also look at a size between 1.2 and 2.8 meters for a 12 year old iv seen a 17 stone guy get thrown round a beach on a 3 meter kite because he didnt know what he was doing also recomended is a helmit only a skete bord style one but will keep your sons head intact should things go wrong

second recomendation if you can find one is the kite itself look for a 4 line kite on handels (not a bar) for a begginer 4 lines = more controle you get 2 power lines and more importan 2 brake lines wich will shut the canapy down fast in problems and aid tighter turns out of the power window for controle in the air

please dont take this as offence but a warning saftey is a real must with kites we have been bared from alot of places even in the off season like beaches ect because of people not knowing what they are doing and getting hurt or other people hurt kiting is one step down from para gliding a seriouse rush but also a serious danger

hope this helps if you want advise on good kite shops shout me with your location and i will be more than happy to give you a kite shop near you that will help you out and point you in the right direction and usualy a flight with them

you can buy second hand gear to lighten the finacial load but if you arnt getting it from a reputable shop then its a mine field

Dr Crippen,

Excellent advice!!!

I'm a kite buggier too and I have reached just over 40MPH according to GPS using a 2.5m Flexifoil Bullet up at Ynyslas. And that was pulling my 18st lard too. Powerkites are exactly as described with emphasis on POWER.

There are plenty of trainer kites out the from people such as Flexifoil, Ozone, Peter Lynn, HQ, etc but as the Dr said, speak with a specialist shop. They will ask all the questions to find the right one for you. Not sure where you are based, but check out http://www.powerkiteshop.com as they do the full range and training.

Cheers

Ian

i agree with everyone above with the danger aspect. I dont think anyone should enter into this sport lightly with no knowledge of the danger involved.

I would recommend a four line peter lynn hornet 2m or 3m or a beamer III. These are totally predictable kites unlike the flexifoil blades which emphasise power. you must also note that depending on wind conditions you may need 3 or four kites to enter into the world of power kiting.ranging from 2m +. you must also get a kite with some form of safety system ie kite killers or one which can be deactivated very easily.

Two line kites emphasise skill and less control than 4 line kites, however if you find the right kite for the right money etc etc then you can have alot of fun safely. Knee pads elbow pads helmet should be warn with any kite beyond 2m.

For beginners flexifoil sting is a suitable kite but not neccessarily for jumping, only to get into the sport.
