A brand new, high quality kite for well under a G! Really?! YES!

New for 2013, Airush brings the DNA, a kite previously reserved for kite schools, to the masses in a plug-and-play package that gets you on the water and ripping in no time! Using the platform of the highly successful Lithium, the DNA keeps riders from entry level to advanced in mind with the stability and simplicity of a Delta Hybrid shape – ensuring a fast and easy relaunch. Incorporating the V3 Bridle, the DNA offers safe amounts of wind range and instant depower, in order to maximize those days on the water.

The DNA is clearly focused on the entry level rider. Airrush understands that to make a lifelong kiteboarder you've got to give them a kite they will fall in love with, not frustrate the crap out of them. And at $849 for a 10m, it's almost two kites for the price of one. That's pretty attractive to someone new to the sport. Packaged with the Vox, this kite will take you from the absolute beginning to advanced riding.

Perhaps you're looking to make an upgrade this year? The Lithium is the gold standard kite for most riders who want an all-around kite. Whether you are freeriding, jumping, or wave riding, the Lithium is the one! Check out this sweet edit from the Airrush crew...

Interested in learning to kiteboard, but don't know where to start? There's no better way to get a taste of the thrills kiteboarding can bring to your life than by flying a trainer kite from the relative safety of terra firma. Not only will you learn how to fly a multi-line kite (an integral part of kiteboarding), but you'll have a hella fun time doing it! We carry trainer kites from HQ, Slingshot and Air Rush. Pick one up, then GO FLY A KITE!
