Inflatable for Snow and Water

Recommended Posts

That's a tall order. No one kite will do it all. HQ Kites Matrixx comes to mind as a good start since it is a great Depower Water kite. Size though will vary based on conditions and your weight/skill level. 

Lots of water kites will make great snow kites. The reverse isn't necessarily true. You need a closed baffle or LEI (leading edge inflatable) kite for water. Otherwise the kite will fill with water in the event of a water landing. 

The risk with a closed baffle system on land is increased possibility of blowing a baffle or the kite itself in a hard landing.

Yes it is a tall order. Just starting to think about it. I have kite skied behind a trainer kite and a mid sized foil and had a lot of fun. I was thinking it might be interesting to think about water potential.
