Description

The 2016 SST Wave is the love child of the Slingshot RPM and the Rally. It is really right in between the performance features of both those kites with a light 3 strut frame that drifts no matter what. What I like about the kite is the increase in low end power for onshore surf over the RPM. Sometimes the current and onshore push drains your power in the surf. The SST keeps you on plane in those conditions and the drift of the kite is unreal. Literally ride straight at the kite and it tracks with excellence. The SST has a nice controlled loop for getting in and out of tricky situations.

The big points that set the SST apart from other kites in it’s class are it’s drift ability and immediate relaunch. The bowed shape of the LE makes the kite really pop right out of the water when down. This shape also makes backstalling highly improbable and nearly impossible.

RIDE THIS KITE ONE SIZE SMALL! Every one will tell you that the SST has a meter more power than listed. If you want an 11 ride a 10…if you want a 9, then ride an 8.
