During the warmer seasons, you might prefer a shorty or super shorty wetsuit
which covers your thighs but not calves.
Shorty wetsuits come in long and short sleeve.
In the warmer waters you need a 1mm or 2mm wetsuit.
In winter and in colder waters, you’re going to need a thicker, full wetsuit
(3mm, 4mm and 5 mm wetsuits)
If you came to kitesurfing from a non-wind water sport like surfing,
swimming or diving and want to use your current wetsuit,
you’re probably not using the best suit for kiteboarding.
We learned from Mystic Waterwear that one of the biggest differences
between a wetsuit made for kitesurfing is the use of nylon one-sided
-- aka “smooth skin” -- material in strategically placed positions on the body.
Shorty, or full suit, front zip, back zip, summer suit, winter suit...
in our shop you will find the right wetsuit for your kitesurfing needs.

We want to change kiteboarding from an ego-driven sport to a community sport.
Sharing joy, successes and failures, is what kite women empowerment is all about.
We are no pros, but we are professionally stoked about kitesurfing. We don’t kite like men because "kite like a woman“ is a compliment for us.
Our kiteboards will not only make you look good and feel confident. They provide you with the boost you need to progress faster.
"How long I have been looking for proper pads that are tight enough for women with narrow feet and shoe size 36. What can I say, girls? I've found them! And they are also super comfy."
"The board is great! I've gone big as never before. It's really fast and light. Easy to turn and pop. The Barracuda board makes my riding so smooth and easy!"
"To go upwind is so much easier than with other boards. You can just lean back and the board will do the magic. I'm in love!"
