Core Section 2 Kiteboarding Kite, 2018


You know who you are. You live for waves. And no wonder. The lure of an endless right-hander, a new point break, or an emerald ocean swell is undeniable. Thankfully, this planet is jammed with magical wave spots that beg to be surfed. And for this, we built the Section 2. A dedicated wave kite for down-the-liners, off-the-lippers, and in-the-tubers. A kite you can virtually turn off so all you have to focus on is surfing that beautiful wave. Strapless riders will appreciate how the Section 2 doesn’t rip them off their stick in the gusts. Don’t compromise, get more out of your next wave session with the new Section 2.

Did we mention this drifting phenom's huge range complements foilboarding too? Its lightweight construction, nimble behavior, and reduced lateral forces make it an unexpectedly awesome foiling kite. It won't yank you off your board, and it zips through lulls. Yup, the Section 2 will amaze you with its foiling pedigree.

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. To all strapped and strapless wave warriors out there, visit your nearest CORE reseller and try the new Section 2. You’ll be glad you did.


  • ULTRALIGHT 3 STRUT FRAME: Lightweight greatness. The Section 2 LW’s acclaimed thin airframe design uses the least Dacron of any CORE kite. Our frames save weight, create superb lightwind balance, and impressive slack-line drifting. Three strut perfection. Strong. Stable. And light.
  • PROFILE: The maximum camber is shifted further back and its aspect ratio is lowered (that means it’s a little fatter) to improve drifting. We also re-worked the Section 2’s airfoil around the wingtips. Give it gas, and the Section 2 comes alive!
  • CORETEX® TRIPLE RIPSTOP CANOPY: Exclusive to CORE. Our, industry leading, triple ripstop canopy fabric is protected and strengthened with three different coating processes called emulsions. CoreTex sets benchmarks in breaking strength, tear resistance, longevity, UV protection and elongation. Feel the tight, crisp signature only a CoreTex kite delivers.
  • FUTURE-C SHAPE: Derived from the GTS’s canopy shape, the Section 2’s moderate Future-C design delivers fast, tight turns and precise control. The Section is also marginally more open (that is, slightly ‘flatter’) than the GTS to promote better drifting.
  • RADICAL REACTION TIPS: For catlike reflexes on monsters. We finetuned the Section 2’s wingtip shape for pure wave riding magic. Enjoy the confidence inspiring reflexes, agility and directional control in waves of all sizes.
  • SHORT BRIDLE SYSTEM: Short and sweet. The Section 2’s super short bridle system improves feedback so you have a better feel your kite’s position. The Section 2 pivots just off the wingtip resulting in super smooth loops regardless of size. 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.
  • INSTANT AUTO RELAUNCH: Instant relaunch is critical when you have a menacing wave that is about to eat your kite. We designed the kite to find its relaunch position in a jiffy. Wave riders will appreciate how well the kite releases from the water with a quick tug especially 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 Speed Valve 2 connects directly to any standard 20mm OD twist lock pump hose. The Speed Valve 2 maximizes airflow, minimizes inflation times and noticeably reduces pump pressure. This inflation/deflation system is so good you may even leave your electric pump at home.
  • SPEED PUMP SYSTEM: Fully pumped in no time. Huge air hoses and strut valves allow uninhibited air flow. And when you haven't kited in a few days, every second counts :)
  • SENSOR BAR READYZ: The Section 2 is optimized for CORE’s ultra light Sensor bar system. They feature precise kite control, unmatched safety, and uncluttered simplicity. Find out why everyone is going crazy over our Sensor 2S here.
