SURF / FREESTYLE SURF

SIZES: 7 / 9 / 11

One of the most interesting things about the Drifter is its ability to engage and disengage its power on command. While catching a wave you want all the power you need but while surfing, you often want the kite to completely disappear while you surf on your own power.

It’s in this moment of pure surfing where you want a kite that ‘drifts’ down the line with you in a stable and predictable way. We dubbed this phenomenon Drift Stability and it is the crucial ingredient in a performance surf kite.

It’s here where the Drifter has no equal and as such has helped us crown world champions and get riders into waves and barrels that were previously thought to be the realm of just elite surfers.

The 250 limited edition Drifter ICON collection kites give a nod towards their industry changing heritage and give riders the chance to enjoy their own completely unique product which represents an Iconic legacy.

Each Drifter Icon kite comes with an official badge collectors number and limited edition ICON kite bag.
