The Envy is a new breed of user-friendly freeride kite notable for its stability and the ease of relaunching it from the water. With new sizes for the 2013 season, you can match the kite to wind conditions, with sizes from 4 to 15 meters. “Liquid Force hit a home run with this kite,” says Forman. “It addresses that apprehension people have about buying a product that they’ll eventually outgrow.”

Price: $1,800 (includes kite, control bar, leash, pump, and board)
