The 4th Generation of the Blade Fat Lady is better than ever! Featuring the Max Flow inflate valve for super fast and easy pump ups without breaking your back. The Fat Lady is in its 4th Generation and still no light wind kites compare. The Kite turns like a 12 but powers like a 17. It jumps well with lofty soft landings and kite loops great. It is even fun for basic unhooked tricks.

My own Personal No BS Review: Increased rigidity and just solid when flying, massive hangtime just floats you forever over the water. The upwind is definitely improved and scoots upwind great. Bar pressure is much lighter and a welcomed improvement, so easy on the arms yet you still feel what the kite is doing. Overall I'm very, very happy with the new Fat Lady and really enjoying the new quick inflate valve, so much better. Pair this with the Litewave Wing 165 kiteboard and you have a light wind killing combo. I'm 230lbs and with the fat lady and 165 Wing I'm riding comfortable & jump in 12 mph winds. If you haven't seen or rode a LiteWave Wing they freaking rock and you are missing out on life!!! We do have the LiteWave wing for Sale as well....

From Blade: Aaaaaah those light wind days. What’s better than going to the beach on a calm day, setting up a towel on the warm sand, getting out your Fat Lady kite and ripping through the air with tremendous power. The 4th generation Fat Lady has even more upwind to help you fly through the air and add new high-level tricks to your collection, courtesy of its extreme quick-turning and responsiveness abilities. The Max Flow quick-inflation system and the Cross-Fiber Ripstop for better durability make sure you can keep your focus on what’s important– going out there and shredding the water with a big smile on your face.

Blade Fat Lady is the kite that will get you when the wind is light and your friends and sitting on the beach wishing they had a fat lady...


The Fat Lady continues to set the industry standard for wind harnessing and power delivery in the lightest of conditions! Its amazing and anyone who hasn’t tried one we can’t stress enough how much of a session saver it can be. Great for all levels of kite surfers, it truly is the toy to have in the quiver for the light winds …

While your friends are standing on the beach pretending to be meteorologists, you can be busting all the tricks in your repertoire or carving the waves all to yourself. Fast, powerful, responsive and a thrill to ride, the Blade Fat Lady has made quite the name for herself in the light wind category.

Stop building sand castles and start ripping - light wind days should be just as fun as any other. Powerful and efficient, the Fat Lady has led the field in light wind kiteboarding. It’s not just designed to keep you upwind, additionally its focused on letting you pull off your usual bag of tricks and shred on the water with a big smile on your face. Every one of Blade’s kites is designed to be ultra-responsive, fast and quick turning. The 4th generation Fat Lady is by no means an exception.

This Following write-up comes from Andy at Bellingham Kiteboarding, and in my opinion and experience flying this kite myself, Andy nailed it!!

I have been on a full on search for the best light wind kite for years. I have tried everything from 26m Foils to 23m Inflatable C' kites... only to end up disappointed. Typically big kites don't turn well, and you lose their size advantage by not being able to turn the kite to generate speed. This is where I think Blade has it right.

The Fat Lady is a 17m Kite. Yes... that is larger than most kites out there today, but you have to realize to get true power, you are going to need more surface area. This kite does that, but does it with a narrow leading edge, and 3 super skinny struts. Why is this important? Mass. This kite doesn't weigh as much as any other 17m, or 16m, or 15m that I have ever flown in the past does. This allows this kite to be light in the sky, while still generating all the power that is needed. With a narrow leading edge and skinny struts, this kite only takes 70 pumps to fill up. This is typical of what I'd expect for a 12m..... which may be why this kite turns more like a 12m than a 17m.

Up until recently with lightwind specific kites, all you got was a scaled up version of a 10m kite. The materials were all the same, and as a result, you ended up with a kite that was heavy and not fun to fly. The Fat Lady has been designed as a single kite. Ie.. this kite isn't just a scaled up version of something else. It was made to be a lightwind kite, and nothing else. This means that the camber (airfoil curve) is made to be maximized in the 10-20mph range, wheas most other kites are designed to be flown in the 20-30mph range.

Relaunch might be the best I have ever experienced. Seriously in light wind the Fat Lady just rolls right over and relaunches. When other kites are falling out of the sky, this kite can relaunch very easily.
