Home: Lives in Australia (from Estonia)
Style: Freestyle and Megaloops
Kiting Since: 2010

When the wind is blowing extremely strong, you can find Reno throwing down insane megaloops at his favourite kiting spot in Perth: Woodman Point. 30+ knots seem to put the biggest smile on Reno’s face, and deliver the biggest adrenaline rush — which he lives for. In fact, Reno is so dedicated to kiting that most of his time off the water is about kiteboarding too. Leading a super healthy lifestyle, Reno regularly hits the gym, eats vegan, and when there is no wind he spends as much time as he can in the surf — all so he can stay fit for kiting and endure some intense crashes.

Zian uses SBS101 Double Ripstop canopy from Sakai Techfibre (Japan).

Sakai Techfibre (Japan) is home in the top end acrobatic paraglider and spinnaker fabrics which are manufactured exclusively by Sakai Ovex in Japan. For their SBS101 double ripstop kite canopy they use high tenacity polyester yarn manufactured by Toray Japan exclusively for Techfibre. Toray Japan is a multinational corporation specialized in polymer chemistry. This makes SBS101 the ONLY full Japanese canopy on the market.
 The canopy production is based on a new process that gives multiple benefits over conventional canopy.
The quality consistency from batch to batch is of a level we have not seen before. Special attention is taken to avoid “chalking” of the canopy after some use, a visual problem seen on many kites on the market. Rather than one sided coating, SBS101 has adopted a double sided multilayer coating technology for longer airproof canopy
