Hi everyone. We’ve been getting this question a lot lately from Entry Level Kiters –
‘What kite should I pick to take me through from beginner to a competent rider?’
There are several kites that do the job but this year we think the Ozone Catalyst 2013 takes the cake. This kite does a lot. From entry level riding right through to free-style and wake-style riding. All of this at a price that won’t leave you arguing with your spouse.
Anyway, here’s our write-up, including some info from the Ozone designers……
At Kiteboarding Cairn Australia we are totally impressed with the new Ozone Catalyst 2013. This kite has great performance in all areas. Not surprisingly, the testing team at Ozone kites have spent over a year tuning and testing this kite. The result is a kite that performs extremely well in all areas of kiteboarding.
