Hornet IV + Kicker Board Package
The Peter Lynn Hornet is the most well established all-round powerkite in the world, in over 10 years of history it has been revised, redesigned and tuned to perfection. Combine this kite with the Kicker V3 and you'll have a solid board that gives a quality ride at an awesome price. This is perfect for anyone starting out in the sport of landboarding.
If you want to be able to go our on all terrains (particularly soft sand), then we recommend you opt for the 9-Inch ultra-grip wheels. If speed is you're thing then the Kheo race tyres is your recommended choice. Generally speaking handles are a more responsive and agile control system to use that is good for those wanting to do jumps and tricks, however a control bar will give you more stability and relieve your arms of some of the physical strain - which is good for those who enjoy cruising.
