Why be limited to just one style? Mixing things up is what keeps things fresh, challenging and fun. This is why we have designed the Swell to be the perfect crossover between wave kite and freeride engine.
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.

Peter Lynn Swell V3 3-strut Wavestyle Freeride
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.
3 point bridle
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.
Reinforced leading edge
Multiple reinforcements improve the durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The leading edge has been reinforced along the entire seam to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding in the waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market. Kevlar reinforcements on the strut ends protect against friction wear.
Direct connection struts
The struts are directly connected to the leading edge with the full diameter of the profile. This makes for a much stronger connection, which not only ensures a better durability, but also a cleaner profile.
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
Fit all valve
The bayonet fitting fits all pumps and the large valve opening makes inflation a breeze.
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.
Trainling 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.
Precise and responsive
The Swell's 3-strut and balanced medium AR results in a very lively kite
It is quick through the turns, so you can position the kite 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
Light and responsive bar pressure
The Swell’s bar pressure has been tuned with long sessions in mind.
Easy on the arms and joints while still remaining very responsive and intuitive,
letting you know where the kite is at all times. Even after hours on the water your
arms and hands will still feel fresh and ready for more.
This is particularly important when wanting to position your kite in the right place
to get that ultimate ride.
The bar feels truly connected to the kite making it the perfect interaction between
kite, wind and waves.
Designed for maximum stability and slack line drift
Depowered the kite remains totally stable and responsive, a must for
“down the line” wave slashing.
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 your kite.
Out in the waves you will soon forget your kite and be able to concentrate on
ripping it up.
Exceptional wind range
The Swell has an exceptionally large effective wind range.
Great low end power, without sacrificing any of the top end will get you going
earlier and will let you stay out longer. Let the Swell surprise you with its
useable wind range, allowing you to work the kite during the lulls, but also to keep
enjoying the waves when the wind picks up.
