There is something truly liberating and free when riding a Hydrofoil. This is further heightened when you are able to ride in winds that were not previously thought possible. Conditions where the water is still, and the only noise is the apparent wind in your ears as you glide across the ocean.
The Contra Aether has proven its self as a bench mark in the single strut kite realm. A kite that not only allows you explore these threshold winds, but also keeps you in control when the winds pick up, or you change your choice of board.
The single strut design and the use of the Hybrid Frame and HRD Lite materials, gives you an incredibly nimble and light kite to fly, allowing you to use much smaller sizes of product to maximize foil boardings true potential. Feather weight control and amazing drift characteristics allow you focus on your riding and not the kite.

Key Features FEATHERLITE The ultra lightweight 1-strut design shaves weight off allowing for increased use in threshold winds.
MINIMALISTIC Minimalistic - Through intensive research and development the Contra Aether comes with one rear line attachment option. Simply put, this is the best possible option straight out of the bag.
EFFORTLESS RELAUNCH Even in the lightest of wind conditions the Contra 1S gives you the confidence to try tricks knowing any mishaps won’t mean a swim in.
DRIFT Superior drift characteristics allow for low angles of attack while on the foil. Rear line tension is carried through even when depowered.
LIGHTWIND OPTIMISATION Designed with the main focus to be ridden in the threshold winds where most kites can't perform.
AGILE AND NIMBLE Single strut design allows the kite to twist and react like no other.
