The WASP has been a fantastic product to design and test, as it is a fresh and exciting way of being driven by the elements! The design team has been learning new skills both on and off the water to bring you a wing worthy of the Ozone pedigree.
The WASP is a Kite Wing that crosses easily from water, land or snow. It offers easy power for anything that rolls, slides, planes or glides. Use it with your Skateboard, Mountain Board, Skis, Snowboard, SUP, Windsurf or Foil board. Simple, quick and a whole load of fun!
We concentrated on making the WASP easy to fly and handle. The large size Leading Edge creates stability and reduces flex, it also helps develop power at low speeds to get you moving sooner. The enlarged strut provides direct angle of attack control, as flex is minimal offering a solid and controlled feeling.
We kept the aspect ratio low to have a wing that has grunt and to keep the tips from catching the water. The wing tips have a layer of scuff protection for riding on snow or land, although it is best to keep the wing off the ground!
Multiple Power Handles on the Leading Edge and Strut have been positioned to cover many options, providing maximum control and comfort while riding. The streamline De-Power Handle at the front of the Leading Edge completely de-powers the wing for total control when carving downwind in swell or when carrying the wing.
On the water the WASP has been developed riding SUP, Windsurf and Foil boards. The simple nature of the wing makes it suitable for riding any board that has enough volume to support your weight on the water. In strong wind conditions and with developed skills it is also possible to ride with smaller volume hydrofoil boards.
On the land or snow minimal wind is required to harness the natural energy to enjoy a different feeling of propulsion.
Optional Waist Leash The waist leash is an optional accessory for the WASP. It is one size fits all (rider and wing) and comes recommended from our design team for all WASP users. Connecting to the riders waist keeps the leash bungee further away during maneuvers and is less fatiguing if constantly letting go of the WASP.
It offers free arm movement which can be helpful when prone paddling with the WASP at your downwind side on the water.
