FOIL MODEL K2
It’s 2 years since we tore up the rule book and introduced the Model P – a revolution for learning to foil and now we’re at it again. Even now there is a chasm in terms of ability needed between beginner and true performance foils – for 2019 we aim to close that gap and introduce the Shinn K2 foil.

It’s 2 years since we tore up the rule book and introduced the Model P – a revolution for learning to foil and now we’re at it again. Even now there is a chasm in terms of ability needed between beginner and true performance foils – for 2019 we aim to close that gap and introduce the Shinn K2 foil. Inheriting the ease of use, early starting and intuitive pitch control from the legendary Model P the all new K2 has an abundance of confidence inspiring stability and control that allows the rider to comfortably handle power and reach speeds that seemed impossible before. Rider further and faster without extreme front foot pressure, agility with stability and a fast track to a more advanced foiling level. With a similar rake and surface area to the model K the secret to this foil is in the combination of the 2-stage anhedral front wing and high aspect, wingletted stabiliser perfectly balancing the foil through a range of speeds. If the P wing was responsible for re-writing the rule book on entry level foiling get ready for the K2 to do the same for the next generation of high-energy freeriders.

Testimonials

★★★★★

This is the way a kiteboarding shop should be. Staff are super friendly. They take the time to understand your requirements, provide advice and never put any pressure on you to buy anything. There's a huge range of stock and I've been able to demo a great range of kites and boards over the years.
After sales service is the best. Recently I had an issue with a kite I'd bought there which was well out of warranty and they didn't hesitate to inspect, diagnose and repair the issue for me and get me back on the water.

You can’t go wrong buying your kites, boards, foils, and all your gear from Kitepower - and I’ll tell you why. The culture of the business mirrors the passion and dedication of the company’s founder, Steve McCormack. And culture matters. When you purchase from Kitepower you’re purchasing from a team of kiting enthusiasts and experts who will look after you. You’ll be purchasing from a family owned business that will do the right thing and put your safety and comfort first. I fully understand that you might not have an opportunity to meet Steve. And maybe if you're purchasing online you won't step foot inside their Sydney location. But I can tell you that Steve’s dedication to kiters and to the sport of kiting is imprinted into the DNA of Kitepower and the team.
