PLKB Skim TR Trainer
From the Manufacturer: To make your first steps into kitesurfing fun, easy and challenging we built the PLKB Skim TR trainer. The Skim is a Closed Cell 3-line trainer kite that can always be relaunched super easily, even from the water. This makes it perfectly suitable for those body dragging sessions to get used to controlling a kite while in the water. The Skim offers an easy yet challenging learning curve perfect for those important first steps into this exhilarating world. Its superb flight characteristics, 3rd line safety and excellent stability in difficult conditions make the Skim perfect to learn the basics in full control and confidence.
Huge usable wind range
From easy going light winds to high wind body dragging fun. The PLKB Skim TR Trainer has a big wind range which makes it an excellent kite to make quick progression with. It flies very easy going in light winds, so beginners feel safe and confident flying it, but it also performs very well in high winds, where the Skim is easily powerful enough for some body dragging fun.
Safe and easy
Easy controls through the control bar with safety leash. The third line on the PLKB Skim TR Trainer has a dual function. Firstly, it connects the trailing edge of the canopy to a wrist strap, so when you let go of the bar the kite will completely depower and drop to the ground. Its second function is to help you relaunch when the kite is nose down on the ground. To make life easy, the lines have been pre-attached.
The PLKB Skim TR Trainer is very stable and predictable for fast progression. Designed as a trainer kite, the Skim has been tuned to fly extremely stable in all kinds of conditions, to give the pilot a safe feeling and – above all – FUN experience. This stability ensures that you will be flying as much as possible without having to struggle to keep the kite in the air. In short, you progress quickly without hassle.
Easy controls and quick through the air
The PLKB Skim TR Trainer flies fast yet is easily controllable. The Skim flies easily in its lower wind range, yet responds exceptionally well to steering input and turns smoothly. As the Skim is flown on a bar, the chance of over-steering the kite is reduced. Its specially designed profiles ensure the perfect balance between speed/control and challenge/ease.
CAUTION: These kites can create tremendous pull which can be dangerous even for the most experienced pilot. Purchaser accepts all liability for their safe and proper use.
