Star Kites

Founded in 2005, STARKITES' concept is based on working alongside a team of proboarders and integrating their feedback into the product development process. The results have been extremely positive with kites, but also with boards, harnesses, fashion and many more accessories, of outstanding quality, comfort and safety.
STARKITES' innovative equipment allows for faster learning and exponential performance at all levels for a fun and safe pursuit of kite boarding's seventh heaven!
The team is made of exceptional professionals, passionate for wind, speed and ocean, who test and design strong and innovative kites to help riders fulfill their passion. The core team includes former world champion Jan Marcos Riveras who fine tuned the SBow08 and SBow09 and is known for doing strapless kiteloops in big waves. Another veteran, William Acosta, a Cuban living in Canada for more than 20 years, has extensive experience boarding on water but also on ice. He holds impressive medals and ranks 11th of 48 at the world Wissa ranking. The team also includes three young pro-riders with incredible skills: Carlos Madson of Brazil and Luis Alberto Cruz and Felix Antonio (aka Posito) of the Dominican Republic.
Headquartered in Cabarete, Domincan Republic, a world-class year-round destination for kite boarders, STARTKITES produces 2 ranges of kites: the high performance freestyle ExA and the famous progressive and versatile SBow. All new equipment is test-riden in Cabarete's Bozo Beach, the optimal location to test prototypes and interact with professionals and customers. Bozo Beach is just steps away from STARKITES' shop and in the center of a sports network designed to offer all the amenities needed to enjoy boarding.
Naturally, STARKITES is a strong partner with kite boarding schools teaching beginners to top-level students in over 13 countries including USA, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Australia and Vietnam.
Starkites' motto is: Passion and Professionalism Are Pillars of Our Team Spirit.
Distribution is available in over 30 countries worldwide and online.
