Description

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!

Ozone 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.

Ozone 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.

Complete with: wrist leash, and bag.

    Love or hate the concept, the ‘wing’ is the latest craze in the watersports world, and just about every ‘name’ and brand are getting into it.
    The Wasp is the latest addition to the Ozone stable of water kites, and as you’d expect build quality is superb.
    The inflatable leading edge and centre strut make a pretty rigid framework, allowing the wing’s shape to remain stable even under load.
    It is definitely lighter than some of the alternative brands, and even on the beach you can feel the potential benefits, as it’s easier to chuck around and get into position to fly. It actually has two handles on the leading edge which is unique to Ozone-one for controlling the wing as you lift it out of the water, and one right on the front of the wing to completely depower it when you’re in surfing mode. It also makes it really easy to carry!
    Once you’re up and riding, the Wasp seems to have really good low-end get up and go, helped by its light weight, but i’ve also used it in gusts over 40knts (not ideal for the 4m but still surprisingly useable) One of the really amazing features of the wings is how completely de-powerable they are. Ideally between 14-30 knts the 4m is perfect, although you need to be a little more experienced to get the low end to work.
    The Wasp feels extremely stable even at the top end, and the handles on the centre strut seem very well placed so you’re automatically holding the wing at the right points. Clearly a lot of time spent fine tuning the details before its release-and it can’t have hurt to have a certain Kai Lenny as part of the design and test team!
    So having used a selection of the other brands’ wings, the Ozone comes in amongst the lightest, and most user friendly wings. It has a massive wind range, and clearly benefits from their reknown build quality and testing programme.
    All that and packs away into one of the smallest bags amongst the brands-a perfect travel addition.
    If you haven’t tried winging, especially on a foil, then do yourself a favour and make sure you don’t write it off before you do!! The Wasp is the best addition to the quiver in a long time!!
