WOW!!!! This is particularly interesting to me since conditions to kite on the beach are slim to none, this could be the cure. I have a lot of parking lots nearby. This could be a day saver for me in the future. Makes me wish I still had the Trampa :lol::lol::lol:

I have considered NPW in the past and I was able to try one out one day with a local guy a couple of years ago. I had a blast flying it but I do like the 1 handed flying of the Born. I have also considered getting some short line sets for my Frenzies but I hate to imagine crashing those on asphalt.

Steve (Windstruck) used to have one. I don't know if he still does. I know Sean flew it for while with his longboard as well. There is a thread here about the Street Star. It seemed like such a cool kite I made my own version from plans for another single skin kite.

good imitation with 3 lines on the bar !

i hav tried the peak 3 9m no lines , the bridles are very long, that s less convenient than street star but very powerful

the design of streetstar is also simpler , that means offen better

kayak paddling https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbbH6WN4Dks
the bamboo is 3O cm to shoort for this use , so i hav to slalom to touch the ground

Randy is correct, I did have a 4.0m StreetStar for a short period of time and brought it with me to IBX 2018. Steffen Born had sent it to me to try out when I was purchasing some RaceStars. It ended up not fitting in with my kiting scheme so I sent it back to him. Great kite, purpose built for mellow riding from a board or skis. Not a knock on it in any way, but one thing I noted was that on a square meter to square meter comparison basis to NasaStars, the StreetStars have a lot less pull. So, a 4.0m StreetStar is the right amount of kite for a pretty brisk breeze, particularly if the resistance to movement is high like driving wheels through grass, soft sand, snow, etc. I'd be thinking about using a 2.5m NS3 on short lines in the sort of wind I'd use a 4.0m SS for example. Maybe not exactly, but that's the drift of it.




Born-Kites:
RaceStar+ (3.0m, 5.0m, 7.0m, 9.0m, 11.0m, 14.0m)
RaceStar (5.0m, 9.0m, 11.0m)
NasaStar-4 (2.5m, 4.0m, 5.5m, 7.0m)
NasaStar-3 (custom 3.2m)

Buggy:
Peter Lynn BigFoot+ nose & tail; midsection VTT rail & seat kit; home-brewed AQR
