Peter Lynn Swell
As low as £809.00
Mixing things up is what keeps things fresh, challenging and fun. This is why the Peter Lynn Swell is the perfect crossover between wave kite and freeride engine. The Swell is a high-performance waveride kite with incredible capacities. The light bar pressure allows you to feel free and focus on riding waves. This kite flies very quickly through the wind window and drifts like no other. The Swell not only performs well with freeriding and foiling but also beginners love the fact that the Swell just flips over and relaunches really easy.
Whatever suits your mood or the conditions best, the Swell gives you the freedom to ride, all day, every day. Pull the bar and feel the kite come to life instantly. Designed for surf, the Swell is Peter Lynn’s answer to riders who like to be versatile. By giving the kite a perfect blend of drift, great turning, low end power, speed, easy re-launch and upwind drive we combined excellent freeride characteristics with wave specific traits to make sure every session is fun whether there’s epic sets rolling in or not.
A kite that excels in all conditions, good or bad; as we believe a kite should not be limited to performing in perfect wind and waves only. The balanced Hybrid/SLE shape of the Swell is designed to be stable and offers the precise and responsive handling that both wave chargers and free riders demand. Its lightweight 3-Strut frame offers maximum stability and slack line drift when you want to focus on surfing the wave. Its quick acceleration and deceleration give you power when you need it and the kite’s highly stable drift capabilities let you focus on your ride rather than your kite. The shape allows for a super speedy water relaunch which is a must when riding more serious sized surf or when you’re dialling in that new trick.
As we like our kiting experience to be rewarding every time we go out we built the Swell to have an impressive boost and lift, making it easy to bust out some moves on your Twintip. Its smooth and predictable handling, stability, depower ability and controllable lift give the rider a feeling of total confidence right from the first launch.
Should you decide to throw a loop, the Swell will definitely surprise you. You will get hooked to its speed and find yourself pushing the envelope. The Swell’s playful handling makes it a fun kite all around. It’s a kite that will give you the confidence to explore new avenues in twintip freeriding and strapless freestyle.
Rolling sets, chop or flat, Directional or Twintip, straps or no straps. Rediscover how much fun and addictive your favourite sport can be with the right gear.
Precise and Responsive:
Quick through the turns, it can be positioned exactly where you need it when shredding waves or loading up for a jump. Even completely depowered the kite maintains its responsiveness, allowing you to quickly power up when you need to get past that close out section or to get over that big set to catch your next wave. The Swell’s responsiveness and smooth power make it easy to pop some impressive jumps.
Exceptional Wind Range:
Thanks to great low end power, without sacrificing any of the top end, you will be able to get going earlier and stay out longer. Let the Swell surprise you with its large useable wind range, allowing you to work it during lulls and to always enjoy waves when the wind picks up.
Maximum Stability and Drift:
The kite's perfect weight distribution and balance give the Swell the stability it needs to drift when the lines go slack on the wave or during a trick, giving you time to focus on your riding instead of worrying about the kite. Its quick acceleration and deceleration give you power when you call for it and the kite’s highly stable drift capabilities let you focus on enjoying and improving your riding.
Light and Responsive Bar Pressure:
The bar feels truly connected to the kite making it the perfect link between yourself, kite, wind and waves. It’s easy on the arms and joints because you work with it rather than against it, while still remaining very responsive and intuitive, letting you know where it is at all times. Even after hours on the water your arms and hands will not feel heavy and will be ready for more.

If you look closely at the canopy on the leading edge, you will see multiple triangular shaped panels. These are called TriFlow and create a smooth and clean transition between the panels.
By using this technology, the canopy segments attached to the Leading edge are now able to curve both vertically and horizontally, limiting all creases from happening on the canopy closer to the leading edge.
TriFlow creates an extremely smooth surface and clean airflow over the canopy, resulting in more stability and a better overall performance of the kite. TriFlow makes the Escape even more stable so that you can focus on jumping and boosting and riding to the max.
3-Strut Hybrid SLE:
The Swell’s unique shape gives it an amazing range, fast and easy relaunch and awesome drifting ability, even in the worst onshore conditions.
The balanced Hybrid/SLE shape of the Swell is designed to be stable and offers the precise and responsive handling that both wave chargers and free riders demand.
Its lightweight 3-Strut frame offers maximum stability and slack line drift when you want to focus on surfing the wave. The shape allows for a super speedy water relaunch which is a must when riding more serious sized surf or when you’re dialling in that new trick.
The bridle system gives the kite a huge and progressive depower range. This makes even the worst conditions a lot easier to handle.
The low friction rings have no moving parts and are very small, so you can be confident that you won’t get any jams or snags with you lines.
Trailing Edge Reinforcements:
The trailing edge is reinforced with a double layer of teijin Technoforce T9600 cloth combined with Bisonyl reinforcements; this results in an extremely durable yet lightweight solution.
This is perfect if you’re looking for a school kite: the reinforcements will make sure that you can use the kite on land as much as you need to without worrying of sand, shells or rocks damaging the wing.
The front and back line connections have been colour coded to allow you to easily and quickly set up the kite, and immediately notice if they haven’t Colour-coded, front and back line connections.
The bridle loops are colour coded and 'knot to loop' to help kiters get their kite in the air safely.
Multiple Tip Settings:
The Swell has multiple tip settings on the wingtips giving the rider full control over how they want the kite to fly.
It can be set up with super light bar pressure or hard direct feedback for those days when you are in the barrel and need to feel every nuance of the kite.
Fits All Valve:
PLKB kites are equipped with a ‘fit-all-valve’ for easy inflation. The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze.
You won’t have to spend hours and hours looking for a pump with the right connection, and will be out on the water in no time.
Double Stitched Leading Edge:
Multiple reinforcements improve durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The entire span of the leading edge has been reinforced along the seam with double stitches to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding by waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market.
All the bridle attachment points are reinforced with Dacron patches that are stitched on the inside of the leading edge so, even if all the power is channelled through one bridle point, the kite will not get damaged.
Peter Lynn Navigator Control Bar:
The Navigator has a unique design combining safety and user friendliness. The complete Navigator bar is designed to be as clean as possible without making any compromise in safety, user comfort or the possibility of tuning your bar to your personal liking. Whether your kiteboarding, landboarding or snowkiting the Navigator is your safe connection to a world of power.
The new Navigator bar give you optimal control and comfort. The bar is tapered so also without looking at the bar, you can feel where your hands are holding it. For your fingers, cushioning is added. The EVA foam is comfortable and durable. The centerline goes through an alloy centerhole, giving you good center grip, low friction and good freedom to steer, power and depower. It offers all you need to control the kitepower.
Safety is one of the most important things when kiteboarding. Kites can generate power that is not always wanted and which can sometimes even be dangerous. If the rider needs to loose the power of the kite, it is important that this can be done instantly and without much effort. Often there is no possibility to unhook the depower loop, therefore a bar need to be fitted with a proper safety release mechanism. The Centrix depowerloop on the Navigator bar is a specially designed part that includes a reliable safety release.
When it comes to safety, one should not depend on one solution only. So besides the Centrix safety release, the lines include safety handles. Simply grab the line handles and you can release your kite flagging it on 1 line, nearly fully depowered.
Ease of Use:
The navigator bar and Centrix depowerloop combination offer control, safety and great ease of use. The package includes a completely tangle free swivel. No more tangled lines after your rotations. Adjusting the (de)power of the kite is done through a proven Clamcleat power adjuster that is placed above the bar. The best place to adjust the depower lines to your liking.
The Navigator control system comes complete with safety leash, for those wanting to ride unhooked. The safety leash is equipped with a quick release might things go wrong, you can quickly and easily release yourself.
The leash can be connected directly to the depowerline, or to the supplied ‘suicide connector’ In that case you connect the leash directly to the chicken loop which should be considered by advanced and expert riders only.
The Navigator control bar has been designed using the most durable materials. However, as with all bar systems, parts do wear in the long term.
Peter Lynn has a focus on making any replacements for these parts as simple and quick as possible, to help you keep your bar safe with optimal performance at minimal costs.
Navigator Bar Sizes and Line Lengths:
The Navigator is available in three packages, each offering the best bar combination of bar size and corresponding length of the supplied flying lines. Those riders wanting to use just one bar for different sizes of kites, can thus find the most suitable bar set. By making use of the extension flying line set as well as the dual bar size endcaps, the bar can be adjusted to fly better on smaller or larger kites.
