If you are looking for a high quality kiteboard which performs well, looks cool, and has a very attractive price tag, then the Allround is the board for you. An incredibly comfortable board with soft flex, great upwind ability and a decent amount of pop, the Allround is constructed from three main elements: precisely CNC Shaped 3T Wood Core, Multi Axial Fiber Glass and Synergy side walls. These three high quality elements enable the board to deliver fantastic performance on the water, and the Allround’s construction is designed to fit a wide range of riders from beginner through to intermediate. For this reason it’s also our most popular board with kiteschools.
The use of Razor fins with ultra thin profile also enhance the speed and provide early planing, and this year’s design features transparent paint with fresh graphics and that sick real-wood look.
Comfort, style and performance are the building blocks for a functional girl specific board. Our Girl’s board has always been specially designed for girls – with an appropriate construction and proper adjustments to suit the needs of girl kitesurfers.
The Girls board is a very comfortable freeride board customized for the ladies. Not only the graphics, but the construction, insert position and straps are all customized for Girl’s.
Construction wise, we source the finest selection of tip-to-tip CNC Shaped Wood Core, Multi Axial Fiber Glass and Synergy side walls to create a great balance of flex, stiffness and pop. A slightly softer flex pattern provides smooth and comfortable riding, soft landings and eats up chop very well.
The Girl’s board is designed for intermediate and advanced riders looking for a comfortable freeride board with enough pop to nail tricks
The Girls Pro has been changed from top to bottom. On the bottom, the new Girls Pro received a Quattro concave in the middle section of the board. The Quattro concave shape provides superior edging, comfort, and softest landings. Towards the tips, the Quattro concave changes into Hexa concave for more stiffness and ultra load ‘n’ pop. We completely changed the insert set up on the Girls Pro. The inserts are now centrally lined up for the ultimate wake binding set up.
As the name suggests, this board is aimed at expert ladies, looking for a high performance board with loads of pop. It is one of very few high performance girl-specific freestyle boards on the market. Everything on this board is custom tailored for the needs of girl riders, this includes an optimized stance, girl-specific graphics, as well as a flex and pop engineered with women in mind.
The Girls Pro has Uni Directional Kevlar construction combined with Multiaxial Fiberglass, which inclines the board more towards freestyle. However, with this layup, the board is well balanced and not too stiff. Pull this all together and you get an amazing board for girls’ freestyle competitions and for aggressive riding, all in a beautifully designed package.
The Elite is more than a board, it is a status. To complement its superiority, the Elite board comes in a one of a kind custom tailored hard case. This unique board bag has been designed to always keep the Elite board safe during travels and trips to the beach.
Unobtainium is a non-existing material of the highest value, which best fulfills its desired purpose, so we were not able to use it, but we managed to apply this concept while creating the Elite board. Our designers and engineers had an Unobtainium mindset, and every little detail on this board is made as if it was made from Unobtainium. Every piece was carefully picked and well thought through to best serve its purpose and complement one another in this extremely unique package.
The Elite is without a doubt the lightest production board in the world. In its mid-size, 136 x 41 cm, the board itself weighs an incredible 1 940 grams. Complete with accessories the Elite weighs only 2 860 grams, making it the lightest board in the industry. Our engineers have spent tremendous amount of time searching for options to strip down weight without compromising performance. With specially sourced ultra light wood cores, used exclusively in the Elite boards, and the most advanced carbon technology so far, we successfully created a Feather Lite masterpiece.
The foiling bug has bitten all of us at LF kite. Fast, silent, smooth, basically flying! What is there not to like about riding a foil. The LF foil was designed with 3 overlying objectives. 1. Easy to use, 2. Built for progression, and 3. Affordable.
We accomplished all 3 by thinking outside the standard thought process of where the foil masses are going. We pushed the engineering staff and challenged the designers to think different. And with relentless pursuit we have hit all objectives! Get ready to fly. The foil for the people!

Building on five years of refinement, the high-performance 2015 ENVY retains its user-friendly feel and do-it-all response, while delivering a variety of substantial enhancements.
Featuring smaller diameter struts, a smaller leading edge, and new lightweight materials, this year’s kite weighs a whopping 1⁄4 less than the 2014 model. Lighter and more efficient than ever, the ENVY turns quicker and moves faster through the window, offering nimble response and amplified high-wind performance. Delivering a crisper feel and more of a direct connection to the kite, the 2015 ENVY uses a lower profile pulley-less bridle, the Bridge Bridle, which reduces drag and increases efficiency.
Engineered with added sweep in the wingtips, the ENVY is easier to relaunch than ever. This refinement also produces a silky smooth power band for seamless power/depower and more definitive kite control. Without sacrificing strength or durability, the ENVY uses lightweight marcloth material in the Layered Frame, which reduces the need for heavy Dacron. This creates a graduated connection between the rip-stop and Dacron materials, resulting in increased performance, strength, durability, and longevity.
While the ENVY evolved tremendously this year, we balanced it all out by changing the arch of the struts (the LE-to-TE profile) to ensure that it retained the familiar feel that makes it our well-recognized flagship kite.
The Sculp is an incredibly versatile all-around performer, suitable for a wide range of riders and styles. The Sculp delivers consistency in all riding disciplines. Built around a widely popular Flat-Delta platform, the Sculp is smooth and predictable in the air with progressive power delivery through the bar’s range of motion. Due to a new bridle system and rock solid construction, the Sculp has a very direct feel and persistent stability. The ease of use is unbelievable, leaving even the most particular riders feeling right at home in no time. Sticking to our tradition of producing high quality products, we sourced only the highest quality Dacron from Germany and Ripstop from Japan for the construction of the 2015 model.
In the air, the new Sculp looks and feels very fresh. The shape, bridle, and construction are extremely solid, so there are no problems handling gusts and strong winds. The focus here is freeride and freestyle, so we made the shaping give enhanced upwind performance as well. With a more direct feel, the 2015 Sculp is also very easy to control for beginner and intermediate, but the new shape generates loads of power with quick response for kite loops and big airs in the hands of more advanced riders. This is a perfect tool for progressing from simple jumps to unhooked freestyle tricks, and the auto-relaunch will make the learning process much smoother. The relaunch is even easier than its predecessors, and the kite sits nicely on the edge of the window with neutral power, ready to pop back into the air automatically after the rider’s input.
The 2015 Sculp is your new weapon for ultimate performance in an all-round kite.
As with all CrazyFly products, the Sculp demonstrates the highest standards of quality both in materials and manufacture. It’s the perfect combination of great value, high quality and performance at a fantastic price.
The Vegas has been completely reworked and redesigned for 2015, it is now even more freestyle orientated and hard-core than ever before! The kite has a more C-shaped arc this year combined with a deeper profile allowing it to sit further back in the window, delivering plenty of power. The wingtips have also been changed for 2015; they are squarer to offer even more direct feel and feedback for the rider. In addition to all of this, the most important feature of the Vegas, the power release delay, has been lengthened. This means that when you pop, the kite flies forward in the window and feels weightless in your hands, allowing you to perform your tricks with ease.
With Aaron Hadlow on board there are different set-ups for 2015. The first two set ups are a mix of wakestyle and freestyle with the most comfortable settings for the rider in terms of bar pressure. The ”Hadlow Set Up” has been tuned specifically for competition riding and Aaron himself; it features a special wakestyle bar connection system. The recommended Wakestyle Bar itself, already offers more slag and power release delay compared to the 5th line Trust Bar, in combination with the Hadlow Set Up is only recommended for absolute experts!
Essentially the kite is very stable for performing tricks, but has a little less depower, only professionals need apply. The Vegas is the most refined freestyle kite on the market, and now it has the endorsement of one of the greatest kitesurfers of all time!
The Evo was the standout kite for 2014 for many people, magazines rated it as one of the best all round freeride kites on the market. Whilst Tom Hebert used the Evo at the Red Bull King of the Air and boosted the biggest jump of the entire competition! The Evo has a huge wind range, no matter which size you fly, the low end is exceptionally good and the 5-strut design keeps the kite stable in high winds too. When the wind is really blowing the Evo is fantastic for huge floaty jumps with lots of hang time. The upwind ability of the kite is fantastic, ensuring you keep your spot on the beach, no matter how big the tricks are! Unhooking with the Evo is easy and the kite offers a power delay after you pop, allowing you to perform your tricks with ease. The Evo is the unsung hero of the North Kiteboarding range, it is perfect for freeride, freestyle and waves; it will be perfect for you…
