HIGH PERFORMANCE BIG AIR / EXTREME FREERIDE
The Big Air legend that’s redefining the genre
Developed out of our partnership with ALUULA Composites, the high aspect, 5-strut Rise has set a new standard in acceleration, precision control, Big Air torque and stratospheric performance.
The combination of the Rise’s highly tuned airfoil design and the benefits of ultra lightweight ALUULA composite material delivers an ultra stable airframe, allowing for utmost rider confidence, and creating a true synergy between Big Air riders and their kite.
Built using 82gsm ALUULA Gold composite material and ALUULA Seam technology, the Rise’s power to weight ratio is next level, coming in at over twice the strength of traditional Dacron airframes, yet at half the weight. The airframe can also withstand a higher pressure than the industry standard, providing exceptionally tuned-in and optimized performance, even in the most extreme conditions.
WARNING: The available power and vertical boost will exceed what many seasoned kiters are familiar with. During your initial Rise sessions, please ease into your first jumps, especially in strong winds, in order to adjust to this new performance level.

Wind Range (kn)
This Wind range chart is for reference only, calculated for a 75kg / 180lb rider.
Board size, foil size, rider weight, rider skill level and wind / weather / water conditions all must be taken into consideration when selecting a kite size. If unsure of which size to select, choose the smaller size.
FULL ALUULA AIR FRAME
It’s no secret that removing struts from kites means a compromise in performance – the reduction in weight improves light wind capabilities but the downside is reduced stability and poor top-end performance. With a full ALUULA airframe, there is no longer a need to compromise…
Featuring ALUULA 82 gsm composite airframe, not only is the Rise incredibly light, but its stiff airframe performs like no other in both light and high wind states. It can also be tuned with a higher PSI than traditional Dacron kites for enhanced high wind handling.
Precision curved to match the airfoil profile, the ALUULA airframe is highly tuned to take full advantage of the unique properties of this cutting-edge composite material which is sewn using super-tough Quad Lock stitching, designed specifically for ALUULA.
Simply put: the ALUULA five-strut airframe delivers the best handling in ALL conditions.
Great stories are for everyone even when only written for just one person. If you try to write with a wide, general audience in mind, your story will sound fake and lack emotion. No one will be interested. Write for one person. If it’s genuine for the one, it’s genuine for the rest.
The A-Series Rise features a high aspect ratio to deliver more lift per square meter and a faster climb, while generating less drag for a kite that lifts you windward.
An open C shape allows for fast precise steering, precision sheeting and quick water relaunch. Creating a light wind performance kite is no easy task... The A-Series Rise contains a wide arc and large projected area to produce as much power per square meter as possible.
The most striking feature is how consistent the catch and climb is, which gives you confidence to go deeper and flatter into your loops. For us it is here that the Rise sets itself apart from the pack.
After two minutes on the water, I decided that this new ALUULA kite will be the next benchmark for Big Air – rock solid, incredibly fast and responsive, producing the biggest lift I have ever experi-enced in nearly 20 years of kiting.
Any rider that wants a quick handling, fast driving and aggressive boosting and looping kite, should consider the Ocean Rodeo Drive.
