Description

Function:

New version of our 3 struted kite with extreme versatility in medium to high wind ranges

 

Introduction:

The Freewave excels in all programs from TT Freestyle to heavy winded foiling and even strapless Surf!!

It can do everything, in a high-end performance register.

First because her behaviour in high wind is extremely reassuring, very stable, the profile hold is exemplary. It doesn’t flinch under gusts and its de-power is ultra efficient. The small sizes in very strong winds are absolutely stunning.

Secondly because the manoeuvrability of the Freewave is one of its strong points, it turns fast without excess. The profile holds tight, without excessively pinching the tips, and maintains its fluidity within the turn. You can practically turn her in place or get her to turn super fast when gliding.

Finally, its stability is exemplary. It’s obvious in surfing when you need to let it drift. And it’s great below 10 knots in foil when you make a piloting error.

The Freewave always remains stable and predictable.

The feeling on the bar is super light : smooth and feline, you can adjust the bar pressure and responsiveness with the many settings available. Nothing better to make it your own.

This new version of the Freewave offers a little more ratio, anti flap slats, and a new sizing.

Big high wind range, great handling and a perfectly stable flight, that’s what you need to go big.

 

Shape :

Conceived and designed on Surfplan (the best 3D kite design software, used by the biggest brands, a guarantee of our seriousness), the Freewave stands out by its originality.

Patrice Guénolé and his team of engineers are GONG employees who work with the Team all year round on the development of our kites. Unlike many brands that order kiteq from an independent designer, GONG kites are not a commercial variation of a model you will find at five or ten other brands. At GONG you have original kites with a real axis of development. We like the kites that glide, that fly healthily, and that fly like a real 4 lines kite. Our kites work in a maximum of conditions because what matters to us is to perform every day and in any weather.

The DNA of our kites is no different from that of GONG: pure gliding. So you won’t find any tricks or marketing plans in our kites. You have in your hands a kite of experts who know that R&D is a constant effort to improve the deep qualities of a kite down to the details.

 

Equipments :

All of our kites come with a premium bag and repair kit. To comply with the new navigation regulations, we have integrated a plastic label on the lower surface, at the level of the ear, to enter the owner’s personal information: name, first name, telephone and address.

 

Construction :

The Freewave is built with the most premium materials on the market : triple Ripstop T9669, skeleton in DP175LL, Bladders TPU 0,1mm

Numerous reinforcements are made and placed intelligently to confront difficult conditions and navigation in the waves.

Instructions

Innovation is at the core of our products

technology kitesurf kite Freewave

GONG Kite Technology :

The GONG Kite Freewave is made in one of the largest Kite Factories in the world and meets the quality standards of the finest Kites in the world.

It is constructed with the greatest care. The Panels are cut by CNC and entirely assembled by hand by the best workers in the kite Industry.

The materials that we use are amongst the finest. We search for the performance for sure but also we look for endurance and for materials that are time tested.

  • Bridles made from Dyneema and Spectra with Ronstan pullys.
  • High quality triple rip-stop, Teijin T9669 (high stiffness, long lasting performances).
  • Leading Edge, struts, and tips made with Dacron Dimension Polyan DP175LL (the most rigid on the market and also the most costly).
  • Reinforcement patches in PVC 1680D along the leading egde and Struts extremities.
  • Bladders TPU 0,1mm for hardcore reliability.​

A reminder, at the Kites weight – whomever the manufacturer – will vary following 3 main factors :

  • The more reinforced the kite is with concern to material thickness, the higher the weight will be, but also the higher the resistance to crashes and also the longevity of your kite.
  • The SPI is waterproofed by a coating process which preserves its performance in use. The thicker the coating, the heavier the fabric becomes, and also the better it ages over time session quantities. For the record, the exposure of your kite to UV and treated water will gradually destroy this coating.
  • Our kites are equipped with bladders that are 100 microns thick, which is among the thickest on the market. We could easily descend to 60 microns but this would substantially diminish the kites resistance to us : Nosedives, kitemares, crashes, overinflation, etc…

Buying guide

For whom?

From beginner to pro, the Freewave is an incredible powerhouse.

Beginners will love it for its strength, its reassuring high wind range and its stability.

The pro will also love it for its strength, high range and stability. But in a radically different register of commitment.

It’s therefore a kite that can follow you throughout your progress.

What is it for ?

For everything !!! Freestyle, surf, foil, the Freewave loves all styles, as long as the wind is present enough to fly a 3-batten kite.

What size ?

How to choose Kitesurf Kite Freewave

Depending on your level, your size, the condition of the water and what you have under your feet (foil/surf kite/TwinTip) the wind range will slide up or down. The Freewave range is designed as a quiver, so that you only need to go down one size when you’re overpowered or up one size if you’re underpowered, to be at the top, without asking yourself any more questions.

The constitution of a coherent Freewave range is based on wing sizes that are very close in small sizes and more distant in large sizes.

We remind you that kiting is a risky sport. Never go out in conditions that are too strong for your level / weight. Never overestimate yourself. Never practice alone.

These wind ranges are for information only, but only you can decide on the day if you should go in the water or not. Please use the utmost caution. Respect the safety instructions inherent to the kite. Thank you.

What is the idéal kite ?

The Strutless for foiling.

The Unik for lightwind sessions.

The Freewave for going big.

Quiver partners ?

The Freewave covers a huge program that goes from TT to foiling, including strapped or strapless surfing. So all possible boards and foils will be compatible with the design of the Freewave.

When the wind is absent, a good surfboard or two will save your day. And if you can: the surf foil is almost compulsory. Your kitesurfing hours will combine with those in surfing and your level will skyrocket, as will your pleasure meter.

Which settings ?

Depending on your feeling, you will be able to give it more or less presence in the bar and more or less residual power. It’s up to you to try what suits you best.

Shipping

Availability:

The dates of availability of all our products are written on each product page, in the size and colour of the product concerned.

These dates are valid at the moment you consult the site and/or place an order. It is possible that this product may be ordered a few seconds after your consultation. It then becomes unavailable. If you have placed an order, this change does not concern you: the product you order is still available on the date indicated at the time of your order.

We sell several thousand products per week. The stocks are therefore very evolutionary. But our management always shows you the real availability live.

If it’s available online: it’s available 😉

Pre-order:

Some articles are proposed in pre-order during their routing to our premises. You can buy this article which will arrive at our place in a few weeks. This method avoids the fair to grab upon receipt of the lot and the disappointed ones who would not order within the hour.

Upon receipt, we will ship it to you as a regular order.

The times indicated on the pre-orders are 95% reliable. First of all, because we only pre-sell finished products that are arriving to us after Customs, and therefore shipped right after. And also, because we add decent margins with concern to the dates announced by the shipping companies or railways.

However, a Worker Strike, a breakdown, an overbooking, can unfortunately happen. In the case of a delay, you will be notified by email (check your spam). It is generally less than a week and totally independent of our good will.

As soon as we receive the container in La Baule, we ship your order within three working days. Then the carrier takes over: delivery time and tracking numbers are under their responsibility.

It is possible that the date displayed on the online for the pre-order of the item you have ordered and paid for may change for two reasons:

  1. All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
  2. The container is late and we have to shift the date by a few days. (Strikes, breakdowns, overbooking, can unfortunately happen). You will be notified by email.

We never change the delivery dates of a container without notifying customers.

 

Delays:

The dates that we announce are shipping deadlines, which GONG has in stock and available here physically.

We usually give a shipping time within 3 days, but in most cases, we ship within 24/48 hours. Normally morning orders leave in the afternoon for example.

Then the transport service takes over. The variables are then important between the customer being delivered to France (very fast) or Bulgaria (a good week) or to a forwarding agent or to Asia or the USA… You understand that each location has its own type of delay.

We work with serious and well-known carriers. They do their utmost to make you happy even if a snafu can happen. In any case, we are there to make things easier and to arrange our customers.

 

Shipping Fees: 

Contrary to others, we do not hide shipping costs in the price of our products. At GONG everyone knows exactly what he pays. The transport is charged at its strictest value, and the person who comes to pick up his products does not pay hidden transport fees.

Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight and volume of each package, and your delivery address. To this is added a labour time of order preparation.

The invoicing of the shipping costs is identical in continental France and in the bordering European countries. A surcharge is automatically invoiced for deliveries to the most distant European countries and all European islands.

For a shipment in French overseas departments and territories or outside Europe, our logistics department will contact you before the payment stage to give you an estimate of the shipping costs. You will be able to accept this estimate and pay your order, or refuse it and cancel your order.

We answer you within 24 hours by email. But 95% of your questions are answered on the site. Try to use our contact form which will guide you to all these answers.

Tracking of your parcels :

The tracking of deliveries is directly ensured by the carriers to whom we have entrusted your parcels. They will contact you by email or SMS to allow you to choose the delivery methods and to follow the route of your package.

If you ask us for this tracking, we will have to do as you do: we will go see on the carrier’s app because they are the ones who manage and are responsible for this job.

 

Delivery:

We collaborate with the best transport providers to deliver you everywhere in Europe and in the world in very short delays.

We have chosen them for their quality of service and their respect of deadlines. 80% of your orders reach their destination in less than 48 hours of processing in metropolitan and continental France.

For Europe, the delays vary from 3 to 6 days depending on the country of destination.

For the rest of the world, delays can be up to 15 days.

Please note that the transport time is added to the preparation/shipping time. Two companies work on your order (GONG and the carrier). Each one controls its activity and commits itself to optimize its delays so that you are delivered as soon as possible, in good condition and at a reasonable price.

You can choose to return your products if:

  • You are not satisfied (14 days right of retraction).
  • You want to change an item.
  • You have refused your package.

For each situation, contact us by our contact form to help you.
