The Section - Pure Wave Kite
The Core Section 2 Kite is a fantastic wave kite. The kite's drift capabilities will make any wave rider happy, but the kite has even more function for foilers. Its lightweight design provides foilers with zippy turns, but it won't yank you off your board in thje gusts.
What Core Says About the Core Section 2 Kite
The Section 2 carries over its acclaimed reduced diameter ExoTex frame, lightweight surf construction, and super quick reflexes from its predecessor. We also found additional weight savings and rigidity improvements. If you’re looking for a kite with impeccable drifting that doesn’t stall when you’re toeside on a wind driven ten footer, you’ve found it.Features
Ultralight 3 strut frame
Three struts is the perfect balance between flexibility and weight. The section’s sharply reduced strut and leading edge diameter use the least dacron of any core kite. This weight saving measure makes for superb balance and slack-line drifting. Perfect for those pivot down loops on your bottom turns.
The section’s airfoil features a further setback maximum camber and a slightly lower aspect ratio to improve slack line drift. Give it gas, though, and the section responds instinctively.
Made in germany. Exceptionally strong. Exotex dacron incorporates a new asymmetrical weave and emulsion (protective coating) process. The stronger fabric improves airflow by permitting reduced leading edge and strut diameters.
Coretex® triple ripstop
Exclusive to core. Our, industry leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. Coretex sets new benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, uv protection and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a coretex kite delivers.
The moderate future-c shape delivers fast, tight turns and precise control. The section is also marginally more open (that is, slightly ‘flatter’) than the gts3 to promote better drifting.
Radical reaction tips
For catlike reflexes. Leveraging our gts3 knowhow, we finely tuned the section’s wingtips for pure wave riding magic. In a side by side comparison, the section’s wingtip is a tad shorter and ‘less square’ than the gts3. The fine tuning optimizes the section’s reflexes, agility and directional control in waves.
Short bridle system
Short and sweet. The super short bridle system improves feedback so you can better feel your kite position. For precise control. In the larger kite sizes, this reflexivity increases even more so. Just imagine a kite that practically anticipates every turn, as if it’s hot wired to your brain.
Core intelligent trim system cit
Kite speed and bar pressure is a matter of choice. Your choice. With fully adjustable back line tension (aka trim), bar pressure and kite turning speed, our quick adjusting trim system gives you the freedom to ride any way you like. So go ahead and play with your trim settings and find your inner wave ninja.
Instant auto relaunch
Instant relaunch is critical when a wave is barreling down on your kite. The section is designed to immediately drift into a perfect relaunch position whenever the bar is released. Wave riders will appreciate how easily the kite releases from the water with a quick tug when time is of the essence. So go ahead and try that strapless 360, you know your section has your back.
Speed valve 2
No special hose adapter needed here! The heavy duty speed valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm o.D. Twist lock pump hose. The speed valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. The valve location also protects it from beach hazards.
Speed pump system
Supersonic inflation! We installed extra large speed-pump strut distribution air lines. And the aerodynamic strut access points make air flow super fast into the bladders.
Anti-wear patches where you need them. New, extreme abrasion resistant patches on leading edge segment seams and strut attachment points will give you another l

In recently picked up a quiver of the core section 2. It's a 11,9,7. Last year I used to have a 14,12,10,8,6 and am trying to minimize my kites. The 11m is a ton of fun. Great speed for the size. Overall I notice no real difference in the kites. But I am happy to say they are still amazing! I can't imagine myself riding another wave kite.
The Core section is possibly the best wave kite on the market combined with the Core sensor 2 bar. The Section LW versions have been amazing. Yes they are bigger surf kites but for the NJ area they are exactly what I needed at 190lbs to get some extra wave days...if I just wait for 10m days ill be waiting too long IMO. So the Core Section LW can get me out in much lighter wind.
