                            - 2018 -

 Gaastra was one of the first watersport brands ever. It was established
 in 1897, and entered the scene as one of the first brands to kitesurfing
  in 2001. As holder of their own sailcloth factory, as well as kite and
kite-accessory factories, Gaastra`s highest priority is bulletproof quality
through all our product range. The success of Gaastra always was and
  will be the teamwork and working with the best people in their areas.
With their background, the access to the factories and all different kinds
of materials and manufacturing processes, Gaastra will always be push-
                 ing their different sports to the next level.

                             R&D TEAM
   Urs Hungerbühler is the “brain” behind GA Kites. His year is split
  between Taiwan for light wind testing and controlling the production
process and Tarifa in the south of Spain testing and developing in wind-
 ier conditions. Since 2015 Gaastra has started working together with
Roy Rodwald as product development manager. Together they represent
 a new era for GA Kites. As one of the biggest global players, Gaastra
        has main distributors and test centers around the world
     developing and testing right at the heart of this fantastic sport.

   For the 2018 season, with the help of Urs and Roy, GA Kites once
 again managed to reinvent itself and implement all new ideas into the
  new product range. With totally redesigned kites in the range there is
  the perfect kite for every rider (Spark, IQ, Pure, Pact). There are also
two bars with adjustable width and line lengths, as well as three wave-
 boards (90Seven Team, 90Seven Max, 90Seven Solar) and three twin
tip boards (Blend, Watts, Pact) which complete the most comprehensive
                            GA Kite range ever.

FREERIDE I WAVE

IQ
TH IQ IS THE KITE OF CHOICE FOR WAVE LOVERS LOOKING FOR A FAST
MANOEUVRABLE KITE AND FREERIDERS LOOKING FOR STRAIGHT LINE
PERFORMANCE THAT’S ALSO AGILE IN THE CORNERS.

Our all new IQ is designed to offer easy freeride and wave performance. A three strut construction
offers stability and control, perfect for wave and freeride. A more bent leading edge profile results in
the easiest relaunch in the GA range keeping you out of tricky situations in the white water. The new
shape also improves the progressive power of the kite, resulting in great bar feeling, responsiveness
even when depowered and stable performance in the waves. It´s easier than ever to put this kite
where you want it and ride where you want to ride.

If you are looking for a fun easy going kiting experience in the waves and on flat water the IQ is your
choice!

PURE
PURE CONTROL, PURE PERFORMANCE.
A PERFECT CHOICE FOR PROGRESSIVE FREERIDERS, AS WELL AS WAVE
AND FREESTYLE ENTHUSIASTS EVERYWHERE.

The Pure is designed as a perfect cross over kite. It´s ideally suited to the diverse conditions most kiters
enjoy in their season. When the waves aren´t on the Pure´s responsive profile makes freeride fun
and precision steering and quick recovery make freestyle a breeze. From the cross-on waves of the
North Sea to the radical walls of One-Eye, the Pure has been tuned to offer the perfect combination
of stability, manoeuvrability and drift. The Pure is ideal choice for kite surfers looking to progress their
kiting on both flat water and in the waves.

PACT
THE FREEDOM TO TEST YOUR OWN LIMITS.

The Pact is purely designed to further push the limits of the sport! Three times European Champion
Mario Rodwald has focused on a refined pop, slack and precise bar feedback.
This real C-Kite is equipped with five struts and fifth line to hold the aggressive profile in shape. With
great stability radical kiteloops can be landed safely as this kite returns to the edges of the wind win-
dow faster than ever. The Pact is a kite you can trust to take your riding to the limit.

Additionally we developed the X4 - 5th line Wakestyle Bar. It provides a major control boost and
uncompromising feedback for your unhooked moves. The freestyle setup enhances the big air abilities
and delivers further depower.

WATTS
FREERIDE | FREESTYLE

WATTS
 The Watts is defined by its double concave channel and wood core construction which make it the
perfect crossover between freestyle and freeride. It not only has a huge range of use but can handle
a massive wind range. The wider tips and the double concave deliver incredible upwind abilities
and early planing at the same time.
The controlled pop is perfect for huge boosts but also suits unhooked tricks. If you look for big
controlled carves with some extra spray this is your board. A smooth but direct board with a huge
range of use.

PACT
The Pact is our high performance freestyle board. Developed by three times European
Champion Mario Rodwald it constitutes a premium construction that doesn´t cut back on
anything. The wood core and carbon stringers minimise weight and deliver huge pop and
direct feedback. Mario added an extra stringer throughout the whole top to prevent negative
flex when riding in boots. Choose the right stance from 73, 77 or 81cm.
The continuous rocker and the fiberglass construction absorb even the heaviest landings.
Furthermore, the channel and concave construction allows you to ride smaller fins and provide
maximum control on landings. This same rocker and outline also make the Pact the ideal choice
for high wind or rough water freeride cutting through chop and keeping you in total control of
your board.

PERFORMANCE MEDIUM WAVE

TEAM
THE ULTIMATE TEAM PERFORMANCE WAVE BOARD FOR
SMALL TO MEDIUM WAVES.

Designed for when conditions get good and the waves are clean, the 90Seven Team offers unri-
valled performance in a compact package. Designed with fast carving rocker to allow the rider to
push the board as hard as possible in the turns and not lose control. A performance short board
outline blends the best of classic carving feel with modern in the pocket riding. The volume is
carefully placed to get you going early but feel light and free once on the wave. A refined shape is
combined with our new Bamboo Pro Construction which both provides great response and under
foot feel with even less weight.
