Welcome to Kitewing – Hand Held Wings

Welcome to the Kitewing website – we are glad that you are here.

The Kitewing is a hand held wingsail designed for sailing on low friction surfaces. Sail over ice and snow with skates and skis, pavement with skateboards or rollerblades, mountainboards on beach or desert – it is all Kitewing terrain.


The Kitewing folds and travels easily in a lightweight ski bag. Bring the wing on

a playground. The Kitewing can be set up or stowed in minutes. The SK8 skate
sail stows within a 42 inch bag which can be slung over the shoulder or stowed
in a day pack.
