Why be limited to just one style? Mixing things up is what keeps things fresh, challenging and fun. This is why we have designed the Swell to be the perfect crossover between wave kite and freeride engine. Here are 7 reason why you need the Swell V3
1 – It excels in all conditions
A kite that excels in all conditions, good or bad; as we believe a kite should not be limited to performing in perfect wind and waves only. The balanced Hybrid/SLE shape of the Swell is designed for maximum stability and slack line drift when you want to focus on surfing the wave. And to complete the range for those low wind days we have added a 13m and 15m.

2 – Light as a feather
Its lightweight 3-Strut frame offers precise and direct handling that results in a highly connected feeling. Its quick acceleration and deceleration gives you power when you need it and the kites’ highly stable drift capabilities let you stick new tricks faster by focussing on your stance or your body movement without worrying about the position of your kite.

3 – Super speedy relaunch
The improved shape of the Swell V3 allows for super speedy water relaunch which is a must when riding more serious sized surf, when you’re dialling in that new trick or when you’re having your first sessions.
4 – It brings back the fun
We like our kiting experience to be rewarding every time we go out. So we’ve built the Swell to have some impressive boost and lift that makes it easy to bust out some moves on your Twintip. Its smooth and predictable handling, stability, depower ability and controllable lift give the rider a feeling of total confidence right from the first launch and will surely have you grinning from ear to ear every time you go out.
5 - You can stay out longer
Easy on the arms and joints, while still remaining very responsive and intuitive, letting you know where the kite is at all times. Even after hours on the water your arms and hands will still feel fresh and ready for more. This is particularly important when wanting to position your kite in the right place to get that ultimate ride. The bar feels truly connected to the kite making it the perfect interaction between kite, wind and waves.
6 - Complete freedom (no waves, no worries)
Rolling sets, chop or flat, directional or twintip, straps or no straps. Whatever suits your mood or the conditions best, the Swell gives you the freedom to ride, all day every day. The Swell is Peter Lynn Kiteboarding’s answer to riders who like to be versatile. By giving the kite a perfect blend of drift, great turning, low end power, speed, easy relaunch and upwind drive we combined excellent waveriding characteristics with freeride traits. Rediscover how much fun and addictive your favourite sport can be with the right gear.
7 - No need to change sizes
The Swell has an exceptionally large effective wind range. Great low end power, without sacrificing any of the top end will get you going earlier and will let you stay out longer.
Let the Swell surprise you with its useable wind range, its light weight construction and quick turning allow you to work the kite during the lulls, and its solid stability and large depower range keep you on the water when the wind picks up.
