The Skinny Boy is Blade's dedicated wave kite, but it is more than just a top performing wave kite. The Skinny Boy is designed with instant depower, the ability to drift, and super-fast relaunch, all features that work well for kite foiling as well as for beginners who want a kite that is forgiving and easy to handle.
First of all though, this kitesurfing kite excels in waves, and for the 3rd generation, Blade have given it two wave settings: the all-round wave for those laid-back sessions for either freeriding, cool wave riding, or hydrofoiling; and the ultimate wave setting which gives even more drift and depower for an inspired pure wave session.
From a technical perspective the 2018 Blade Skinny Boy has a slim leading edge, a solid 3-strut shape and precisely designed bridle. Premium build quality makes this the ultimate kitesurfing kite. This is a versatile kite that will have you carving, foiling or just freeriding with a huge smile on your face.
