Section 2 ­– Lighter. More intuitive. And just plain amazing in waves!

You’ll know when you’re ready for a Section 2. If your laptop’s wallpaper features One Eye and Nazare you’re most likely there. And if you obsess over wave heights and periods, you are absolutely ready for a dedicated wave kite. So why not go all in with a new Section 2 and Ripper 3, the ultimate wave combo. Because you’re ready to appreciate all the wave specific engineering that goes into the new Section 2.

The Section 2 carries over its acclaimed reduced diameter ExoTex airframe, lightweight surf construction, and super quick reflexes from its predecessor. CORE’s no-stretch ExoTex incorporates a unique radial reinforcing thread pattern that enables higher pressure airframes with smaller diameters. It improves airflow, flight stability, and rider feedback by substantially increasing tube strength and rigidity despite reducing diameters. Section 2: The park-and-forget-about-it kite for endless down-the-lines and off-the-lips!



Strapless – Spectacularly easy!

With effortless directional control and the right amount of pull, the new Section 2 keeps strapless riders upwind and on their board. Freestylers will love the confidence and in-air altitude control to land those physics defying aerials. When it comes to waves, the Section 2 is ‘all in.’

Perfect for foilboarding too!

This drifting phenom with huge range pairs perfectly with any foilboard. Its lightweight construction, nimble behavior, and reduced lateral forces make it an unexpectedly awesome foiling kite. It won’t yank you off your board, and it zips through lulls with ease. Yup, the Section 2 will amaze you with its foiling pedigree.

Section 2 LW: Small Wave Warrior.

You’d be surprised how much fun you can have in waves on a bigger kite. The new Section 2 LW’s enormous range lets you easily spill the wind so you can focus on the fun stuff, that is surfing. The LW’s agility and surface area to weight efficiency give the feeling of a smaller kite and yet it still has the pull to get you out of trouble in the lulls. And gusts are held in check with its mega depower. It’s easy to question the fun factor of a 12 or 14m wave kite if you haven’t ridden one. If you ask Rob Kidnie, a CORE team rider who spends a lot of time in Indonesia, which Section 2 is his favorite, he’ll say the 14m LW. Go ahead and try one, it just might change your views!

Impact 2 – Make an immediate impact on your riding!

Experience the ultimate unhooked machine. A legit wakestyle beast. A no-bridle, pure C with five lines. Its skinny ExoTex airframe, deep C canopy, increased trim options, and extra sizes fuel its explosive power. Yup, Core have gone all out with this stunner by amping its speed and aspect ratios. Try one if you dare!
