Liquid Force WOW 2016
Born from our mission to engineer a top-performing wave-riding kite that also excels at all-around freeriding, LF is pleased to introduce the WOW. Bringing our wildest dreams to life, we poured our passionate hearts and minds into this kite’s extensive development.
Offering silky smooth sheet-and-go power delivery, exceptional maneuverability, and instant response, the WOW gives you the precision and freedom needed to position yourself right where you want to be — on each and every unique wave — for the ultimate, connected, surf-like feel. In other words, the WOW lets you focus on the wave, rather than on the kite.
The WOW is not just a surf-oriented kite though. It’s stacked with freeriding traits, including stellar lift for big boost and long glide, pivotal looping for air transitions and gentle down-loop landings, a small LE for banger upwind performance, and ultra responsiveness for fluid, carving turns. Additionally, all of these characteristics, coupled with the WOW’s graceful drift, make it a powerful choice for an enhanced and simplified foilboarding experience.
Requiring minimal bar input for immediate and direct response, the WOW pivots on itself rather than from the wingtip. Given its pull-free pivoting, you can turn on a dime — with as little or as much power as you like — and draw lines in the surf like never before. Whether you’re looking to log laps at your favorite break, or wanting all-time freeride fun, this kite will WOW you with its next-level performance.
