The Marabou 2’s hybrid single-surface and closed-cell construction allow you to enter a whole new dimension when you take advantage of its innovative design. Its new rounded and square shape enables you to experience an incredibly small and light kite that generates extraordinary power on foil boards, twin tip boards or surfboards.
The closed leading edge allows the kite to be positioned further forward in the window and gives more upwind performance.

accessible

The Marabou 2 performs exceptionally well in light winds and offers astonishing stability. Its depower and manoeuvrability will make your session easy. In addition, if your kite falls in the water, you will be able to relaunch it.
The zip on the inside of the leading edge allows you to deflate the canopy faster and offers the possibility to leave the zip open when snow kiting, in order to deflate it faster in case of emergency.

Thanks to the innovative design of the Marabou 2, Kiteboarding will enter a whole new dimension. Half of the surface won’t sink! Plus, it is extremely compact and lightweight, so it can be carried anywhere.

With the Marabou 2, we tried to find the performance of a closed-cell kite combined with the lightness of a mono surface. The exceptional handling makes it very easy to use for anyone.

Hans Bollinger - Designer

It is to much fun to fly the Marabou 2! The kite is very easy to use for beginners. The turns are described fairly well, and you can be surprised from the moment you want to leave the frame! The ideal compromise is to have fun.
