Grab a twin tip and go cruising or jumping, enjoy the ride while progressing with ease. You will be surprised at the jumping and looping capabilities of the Alpha; it has smooth lift and hang-time with precise feedback. The Alpha has great upwind performance thanks to the innovative flat arc design and an efficient high lift airfoil section.The lightweight design translates to incredible low-end performance making the Alpha a very competitive choice not only for light wind freeriding, but also the expanding freeride hydrofoil scene in almost any wind strength. The power to de-power stroke is progressive and dynamic enough to provide smooth lift for transitions and jibes with a foil board.
For high wind foiling in chop or waves, take a small size with shorter lines for loads of fun drifting the kite while carving swells across the wind.In the surf the Alpha is perfect for drift style wave riding as it floats with you. The handling is direct and responsive which allows you to put the kite where you need it. The Alpha is not as dedicated to waves as the Reo, but it still delivers solid performance in cross-shore to on-shore conditions.Water re-launch is easy, by simply turning the bar or using the re-launch balls on the leader lines, the kite will roll over into the re-launch position.Going traveling? Take the Alpha with you, it’s incredibly lightweight, packs small and can do anything you want to do on any given day…The Alpha V1 comes standard with an ultra lightweight Compressor Bag, perfect for travelling and day-to-day protection for your kite. It is easy to use and compresses a kite to minimal size. Combine with the Technical Bag to fit multiple kites inside one carry bag.

When purchasing the kite + bar/lines options, you will be supplied with 20m lines, and Ozone will select the bar length to suit the kite. See the wind range & bar size chart for further info

    I took the 10m Alpha away on my last trip to see if the hype about it being a great allrounder matched the reality.
    It is super light pumped up, and you really feel it when its really light (6-7 knots) as it drifts, but never falls, even in really light times. On the foil it powers up really smoothly, and has massive depower, so super easy to concentrate on the foil itself. The bar has a little more pressure than the Reo’s i’m used to, but that actually makes foiling transitions and dealing with wind variation even easier. It goes upwind ridiculously easily, but the drift capabilities make tricky downwind foiling super simple. It really gives you confidence to downloop knowing how much depower and control you have.
    I managed to relaunch it in less than 10 knots, but any more than that and it pops up super easily with a back line reverse launch.
    So super good for foiling which is maybe no surprise, but what really surprised me was how good it is to use on a surfboard. It definitely has more grunt than my 9m Reo, but in onshore conditions i was really surprised how well it turns and drifts when you’re riding. I don’t own a twintip anymore but there’s definitely a load of pop for strapless freestyle, so i’m guessing unless you want to do megaloops and full on freestyle this’ll do you nicely on a twintip as well.
    There are other good single strut kites on the market, but i haven’t used one with anywhere near as much all-round performance as this before.
    Suspect my 10m Alpha is going to be my go-to kite for the summer for sure!!
