SKINNY BOY 3RD GEN

Waves come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why we worked hard to bring you a dedicated wave kite that is a perfect match for both Chill Jill from Brazil and Extreme Tim from Indonesia. Now you can control how much of the enhanced depower and stability you’ll use by switching between two separate wave settings: The all-around wave – a more laid-back setting for an Instagram-worthy wave, freeride or hydrofoil session; and the ultimate wave – a hardcore setting that sacrifices just a bit of the handling in favor of mesmerizing drift and depower features that could end up in a highlight-reel maneuver.

Technically speaking, the Skinny Boy features a small leading edge, a solid shape and precisely designed bridle, resulting in a kite that you can count on at any condition: cross offshore, on shore, side shore, light wind or big gusts.

 

  • Great drift
  • Enhanced Depower
  • Lightning-quick turning
  • Choose your own setting

FEATURES

  • 3struts

    3 STRUTS

    The 3-strut kite design has proven itself since the day Blade introduced it in 2008, enhancing the responsiveness and turning speed for any size kite.

  • pivot

    PIVOT TURN

    A large range of depower and quick power generating ability, helps the kite turn on a dime without losing your speed and position on the wave.

  • quickturn

    QUICK TURN

    All Blade kites are designed to be super reactive and quick turning. This is vital in order to progress as riders and define one's riding style.

  • reduced-bridle

    REDUCED BRIDLE SYSTEM

    The innovative 4 point bridle system minimizes the size of the leading edge to minimum while maintaining the depower performance of a 3 point bridle system.

  • depower

    INSTA DEPOWER

    Full depower control is a key element to dynamic wave riding, giving the kitesurfer the ability to balance power, wave maneuverability, and direct feeling with the wave.

  • drift

    MAX DRIFT

    The power profile keeps the kite stable and in position while riding downwind. This is vital in almost all wave riding conditions.
  • sweet-spot

    EXTENDED SWEET SPOT

    The wind range for this kite has been increased, so that you can enjoy maximum kite performance in multiple wind conditions.
  • reflex

    REFLEX RELAUNCH

    Whether the kite dives onto the water or tumbles through the waves, it doesn’t matter. The exclusive kite design forces the wingtips out of the water and to the edge of the window. Virtually no work is needed to get back up and riding.
  • maxflow

    MAX FLOW INFLATION

    Inflating your kites becomes easier and faster with the max flow inflation system. The kite will be ready to go in almost half the time, along with a very gratifying bonus: a higher leading edge pressure that leads to a better kite performance.
  • dynamic

    DYNAMIC PROFILE

    The profile shape from the leading to the trailing edge changes as you move from the center out towards the wingtips. This rider-conscious design provides the optimal performance characteristics for the different stages of flight.
  • skinnyboydoubleconnection_c

    SKINNY BOY DOUBLE CONNECTION

    The all-around wave – a more laid-back setting for the average  wave, freeride or hydrofoil session; and the ultimate wave – a hardcore setting that sacrifices just a bit of the handling in favor of mesmerizing drift and depower features.
  • tewavex

    TE WAVE X

    All new kites have a wavy shaped double ripstop layer. This new shape helps to evenly spread the force between single to double layers which results in less wear overall

CONSTRUCTION

  • Blade-Construction-InsigniaTape-Thumb-A-01i

    INSIGNIA TAPE

    We know you like to ride hard. That’s why our kites have 25% more Insignia tape in the delicate areas surrounding the LE. You can be confident this kite will endure even the toughest impact.
  • Blade-Construction-DacronCombo-Thumb-A-01i

    DACRON COMBO

    Making a kite both light and strong is key for the kite’s performance. We achieved this by applying a very strong 170g Teijin Dacron for added rigidity in primary areas like leading edge and using lighter 160g Dacron HPE for less vulnerable sections.
  • Blade-Construction-MoldedLEGuards-Thumb-A-01i

    MOLDED LE GUARDS

    Our freshly designed molded LE guards are lighter, more aerodynamic and effectively protect the kite from all your outrageous wipeouts.
  • MAD2 trigger

    MAD 2 AIR FLOW SYSTEM

    The specially-designed valve pieces on the one-pump system are 100% foolproof. Trust us, you’ll be pumped up and ready to ride in no time!
  • Blade-Construction-MaxFlow-Thumb-A-01i

    BLADE MAX FLOW

    The all new inflating system makes for a 44% quicker inflation to get you on the water as fast as possible.
  • Blade-Construction-Pump-Thumb-A-01i

    BLADE 2ND GEN XL PUMP

    New and improved pump. This new pump is more durable, has less shaft friction, has a built in pressure gauge and a slick design.
  • Blade-Construction-CorssFiber-Thumb-A-01i

    CROSS-FIBER RIPSTOP

    The all new cross-fiber ripstop is a newly developed double weaved fabric, which provides your kite with double the strength and durability. An additional layer of coating increases the canopy's resistance and prevents it from wearing out.
