Great quality gear and service
Rob Kuijpers
Excellent service by Phill and Mike today in their beautiful shop, where i bought a new Carved Imperator 7 board. Advise exceeded my expectations, and i can say i an demanding when it comes to kitegear. Even the most technical questions aren’t a problem and these guys are true experts. Foreigners are able to claim back 15% tax at the customs office at the airport. Highly recommended to visit the shop! 🤙🏻
A very nice kiteshop ! Mr. Mac Donald is professional, takes a lot of time for his clientele and is just as cool in real life as in youtube. 👌

Bob Lugen

Great shop with all the gear you could want in stock and the most knowledgeable staff for kiting! Also right at the Dolphin Beach kite spot, so convenient!
Micky Thunert
Your one stop shop for CORE trade-ins!! Messaged Big Air Kite on a limb to see if I could trade in my current gear for the newer models. Within a week I had dropped off the gear and received a full quotation. Phil was the best! Very responsive and facilitated the entire process including getting a VAT refund. Mike was also super helpful when ever he was needed to give input. I greatly recommend BigAirKite!!

Our team riders have been putting this board through the ringer in the photoshoot in Cape Town and they’ve got this to say:

Our favorite board just got lighter and it’s even got adjustable rocker (the bend in the board)! What’s adjustable rocker? Well, the grab handle can be twisted to adjust the rocker by 15mm. See the handle in action in the gallery video.

Probably the highest strength per mass board on the market. It’s 100g lighter than the Imperator 6. This light weight makes board-offs and old-school a pleasure. Despite being so lightweight, our team riders have yet to snap one- thanks to Carved’s improved Cartan 2 Carbon build. Everything about this board shouts ‘German Engineering!’


How light is light?

Well the 135cm weighs only 1.9kg (excl fins and handle), which is the lightest board we’ve ever gotten our hands on!


What we like

  • Adjustable rocker
  • Doesn’t scratch or crack easily
  • 100g lighter than the Imperator 6
  • It now comes with a board sock to keep your baby safe!


Tech Specs

  • Hand crafted at the Carved factory in Germany
  • Cartan 2® Carbon
  • Insanely Lightweight construction (1.9kg for the 135cm, excl fins and handle)
  • Double Concave and “Center Keel” bottom shape
  • Soft tucked rail in the center to hard rail off the tail
  • UV GUARD: Doubled UV protection
  • 3D shaped Paulownia wood core
  • Elliptical flex tips
  • Razor G10 fins are sized to match each board length (Included)

Unhooking report

*In contrast to the wakestyle twintip Tantrum, the Imperator is strictly designed for straps. You void all warranty claims if you install boot bindings on the Imperator Edition board.

It feels like

Sturdy, lightweight and most notably springy. There is a moderate amount of flex in the board that allows you feel the water beneath your feet beautifully.

Quality report

The landings and crashes in big air can be extremely taxing for a board and we’ve seen many carbon fiber boards not live up to the challenge – but not the Imperator!
