The Black Dog is a very unique sport kite. It is designed as a trainer and introduction for those pilots ready to move up to advanced slack line trick flying. It also comes with factory installed features normally found on much more expensive sport kites. It also rips through the sky with a “buzz” noise to add to the excitement. The Black Dog basically came from another of Skydog’s successful designs, the Thunderstruck. Skydog enlarged it, replaced the Fiberglass frame with a durable high tech Carbon frame, tweaked it out a bit, added a weight system, yo yo stoppers, covered the leading edge to avoid line catches, and basically gave it everything higher end sport kites have for tricking. Don’t let it’s 6 foot wingspan fool you, this kite is capable of all of the advanced big wing sport kite tricks and the smaller size allows the flier to learn these tricks without the pull associated with larger wingspan slack line sport kites. Includes Ready To Fly Dyneema fly lines on winder with fly straps.

Please note: This is a high performance kite designed for pilots who are experienced with stunt kites.

This also means that if the kite hits the ground at speed it will break the frame. KiteSmart carries a range
