2011 Flexifoil Hadlow Pro 13m


Just got the 2011 Hadlow Pro in today (Thanks Angus from Coastal Wind Sports!) and right out of the bag this kite exudes performance. Bomber LE construction, kevlar scuff pads and a beautiful outline.

It comes with set up as a Fifth line kite, but it can be set up as a 4-line and you can throw a pulley on the front lines that gives you massive de-power. Of course the wind does'nt look to be on for the next few days, but look out for an extensive review in the near future!

Man....if THAT'S what it takes to get sponsored by RedBull (to get my RedBull kite) it's gonna be a while.

A LONG while. I'll have better luck trying to befriend Hadlow or Chasta, invite them to a poker night in the garage and ante up a Peter Lynn hoping they call with the Ozones or the Flexis :lol:

Nate's kite is identical to Aaron's, minus the sponsor logos. Just remember, ride it 4-line and there essentially is no safety!

Alright so I finally got out on the new Sexi Flexi, siiiiick kite!

Flew the kite in about 15-20mph in the 6 line mode. Which works by taking apart the 5th line Y at the kite and adding two extensions onto the front lines of the kite, peace of cake to figure out and really makes it solid in the air. The kite was so solid in the air, didn't even have to worry about where it was at with the really good bar pressure (not too much, not too little).

Fast, fast, fast kite for a 13m and had plenty of depower through the throw, not trying to pimp out this kite but it was super solid and responsive. First kiteloop I slammed hard and so did the kite, not a problem re-launching at all, pulled one rear line and boom right back in the air, crashed it on the side of the window after a spoiled railey and again no problem. Un-hooked it didnt float too far back into the window but stayed steady right where I put it which makes in nice to try new tricks.

Trying to find a kite that has a C-kite feeling? Fly a Hadlow, you'll get what you are looking for.

Late update, but I took the 13m on a downy last week in very weak SW winds 15mph max. Rode my 5'9 Stretch strapless, because its a surfboard and I use it like one! This kite floats perfectly downwind whilst you are surfing towards it, you don't have to worry about it falling out of the window one bit. Rolled it in a few of our HUGE 4 ft waves and it came out just fine, this kite has been nothing short of amazing so far. Ready to get on a landboard with it at JIBE!

...more videos to come
