HQ is the industry leader in Foil kites and trainer kites. HQ Kites & Designs USA is a national sales and distribution company located Powells Point, NC a great area live and work in the wonderful Outer Banks region.

What we think: This is our best selling and most popular trainer kite. Proven in our own kiteboarding school, we highly recommend it. Use it on the beach, in the water, for body dragging or pulling yourself on landboards/paddleboards. The HQ Hydra is a great trainer kite.

Crowded beaches and no space for kiting? Launch the “Hydra” and head off into the water! The “Hydra” is a unique trainer kite designed to re-launch in the water. The revolutionary closed-cell technology makes relaunching and landing on the water safe and easy. A one-way valve system and a watertight zipper effectively prevent water from entering the kite. The “Hydra” works equality well on land and generates enough power to pull you through the water during your first body drags. The 3rd line safety system quickly lands the kite if you ever feel overpowered, so you can focus on learning techniques and new experiences.
