Wave Warrior.

Sometimes you find super clean, waist high, rollers are unrideable because your current lightwind kite is simply not agile enough to follow you. Instead, your big kite wants to pull you off your strapless surfboard when you ride the waves. This is why we created the lightwind surf kite for little waves. Because little waves can be just as fun too. The Section LW with its slightly higher aspect ratio (than its’ siblings), Radical Reaction Tips, and 3 strut construction is designed for controllable drift while you play in the waves and turn on a dime when you need to.

Key Feature Snapshot


Three struts is the perfect balance between flexibility and weight. The Section’s sharply reduced strut and leading edge diameters use the least Dacron of any CORE kite. This weight saving measure makes for superb balance and slack-line drifting. Three strut design. Perfect for those pivot down loops on your bottom turns.


The Section’s airfoil features a further setback maximum camber and a slightly lower aspect ratio to improve slack line drift. Give it gas, though, and the Section LW responds instinctively.

EXOTEX® Dacron

Made in Germany. Exceptionally strong. Exotex® Dacron incorporates a new asymmetrical thread structure and emulsion (protective coating) process. The stronger fabric improves airflow by permitting reduced leading edge and strut diameters. Despite reducing strut diameters, our new Exotex Dacron improves kite stiffness, flight stability and rider feedback.

Exclusive to CORE’s LW Editions. Just a little lighter. Our, industry leading, ripstop canopy fabric is just as durable as the original CoreTex® yet sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity and UV protection. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex® Light kite delivers.

The moderate Future C-shape delivers fast, tight turns and precise control. The Section LW is also marginally more open (that is, slightly "flatter") than the GTS3 LW to promote better drifting.


The Section LW edition features a reduced Dacron leading and trailing edge design with the exception of the areas in contact with the beach when launching and landing. Those areas are particularly robust and designed to take a beating.


Kite speed and bar pressure is a matter of choice. Your choice. With fully adjustable back line tension (aka trim), bar pressure and kite turning speed, our quick adjusting trim system gives you the freedom to ride any way you like. So go ahead and play with your trim settings and find your inner wave ninja.


Instant relaunch is critical when a wave is barrelling down on your kite. The Section LW is designed to immediately drift into a perfect relaunch position whenever the bar is released. Wave riders will appreciate how easily the kite releases from the water with a quick tug when time is of the essence. So go ahead and try that strapless 360, you know your Section LW has your back.


Short and sweet. The super short bridle system improves feedback so you can better feel your kite position. For precise control. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot wired to your brain. 

XR4 - Short Bridle


No special hose adapter needed here! The heavy duty Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm O.D. twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. The valve location also protects it from beach hazards. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.


Supersonic inflation! We installed extra large speed-pump strut distribution air lines. We also made more aerodynamic strut access points to make air flow faster into the struts. We did this all for you because we know how much you enjoy inflating your kite. 


Anti-wear patches where you need them. New, extreme abrasion resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut attachment points will give you another level of protection from those perfectly placed beach hazards.


The Section LW  is fully compatible with the Sensor 2 and Sensor 2S bar system which features precise kite control and our unparalleled Supported Single Frontline Safety (SSF) system. The super clean design has no bobbles to interfere with your style and the ingenious no sag flag/safety line is more aerodynamic (and looks better!).
