Central American Sea Kayak Expedition -  Power Kites

Traction Kites aren't new, but traction kiting on snow is. With a two-line kite, we can ski at high speed and tack upwind like sailboats. This new type of traction kite with inflated sponsoon also allows usage on water. After kite-skiing the snowy Northern Japan beaches, we are taking our traction kites to Central America for our Sea Kayak Expedition. We will test two-line traction kites to sail sea kayaks. Don't miss the first photos and follow our progress as we perfect the expedition sea kayak kite sailing technique.
