'SuperModel is really a kite that reflects the real essence of kiting in my eyes: have as much fun as possible when we go out kiting no matter the conditions, being, gusty or steady, flat or choppy, waves or kickers, light or strong'

Supermodel feels like an extension of your body. you always feel where the kite is and what it's doing. That means you can have the most fun on the water and just focus on your tricks, the waves, or whatever the ocean decides to throw at you.
The way the kite turns and flies means it's extremely versatile. It gives huge lift to jump super high and just go massive. If the swell picks up you can grab a surf board and ride any kind of waves. Flat water? go for an unhooked freestyle session or light wind foiling.
Whatever the conditions or whatever your riding style, Supermodel does it.
By Damien Girardin
The focus in the design process is really simple, make the highest performing kite while keeping it as precise, forgiving and easy as possible.
To reach this goal, the process is always the same, I spend hours kiting in all types of conditions while analysing what’s happening with the kite. I look for feedback from our clients and riders, and look at video's of our kites flying in as many conditions as possible.
One aspect that I thought could be improved is the reaction to heavy load during over-powered conditions or heavy loaded turns such as kite loop.
Bridle balancing is almost 50% of kite design. So I focused specifically on analysing why some sizes handled better than others during the heavy loaded turns, and applied it to the ones that I felt could be improved. It seems like bridle adjustment could be a never ending project, but I’m confident that the SuperModel 3 is the best kite I could possibly design!
