I saw the Audi Kite Edition on FB.
I don't have anything against Audi, but I think they're off the mark for kiters. A board rack, liner floor and LED rack lights?........sure that's a good start but a little fluffy if you ask me.
If you want the ultimate kite vehicle get this:
Toyota Hilux w/ diesel engine. 30mpg w/ 4x4
Seats 5 with a bed big enough to hold surf boards and kite gear for 5.
Rubber floor and you're all set.
We have to bushwack sometimes to get to good kite spots. This can involve driving miles on logging roads, beaches, rocks and snow. Sometimes towing a boat. I don't want a 2 seater car for kite duty. Sure fuel mileage is nice.........but I like a truck.Hey North American kiters: email Toyota and lobby them to bring this truck to the states! I think it would be a great option IMO.
(actually just offer the diesel motor in the Tacoma.)
