Kitewing: A Sport For All Seasons

Snow may be long gone soon, but there are still some variations on snow play you all might be interested in. Kitewing, or "the wing" for short, gives you the wings to fly. Check it out. It's like windsurfing, but you can use it with skis, snowboards, ice skates, or in-line skates - so you can use it when all the snow has melted. All you need is some wind and a big open space to soar.

Most riders learn to use the wing within 30 minutes. You can glide along gently, but are capable of hitting speeds of up to 62 mph. You can also use the power of the wind to help you jump and hit heights of up to 15 ft high and 120 feet long.

What's great about this sport is that all you need is you, the kitewing, something on your feet, and the wind of course. That's it. You don't need any assistance to get you going. Plus, it's easy to assemble, disassemble, and transport (once broken down, it's about the size of a ski bag).

Fit's Tips: If you're interested in purchasing one, you can find a dealer near you on their website. Or check Tahoe Demo Center. They have the Kitewing on sale for $1,99.99. Or you can check out Super Dairy Boy website for cheaper models that are between $809.99 - 1.999.99.
