This week Airush was proudly voted Kite Brand of the Year by the American Wind Sports Industry (AWSI) at the annual 2018 AWSI Board Sports Expo in Hood River, Oregon. The awards evening took place in the basement of Hood River’s Elks Lodge among an audience of the industries leading insiders and pioneers to celebrate the 2018 product year. Airush came out on top winning the prestigious title of Kite Brand of the Year.

Along with a few great campaigns, the highlight of their 2018 year was the release of their biggest video feature, What’s in a Name, which gives the audience a glimpse into the design work taking place in the Cape Town office, their hands-on approach to innovation, and the rigorous product testing that helps place them as a brand.

Going forward, the guys at Airush are absolutely frothing for the year ahead with a solid team and some epic product releases that they are super excited about. Their full 2019 collection is online now, with a few of their campaigns having been released already.

Having launched just yesterday, they introduced the Union v4 with a refined shape and completely new feel thanks to the all-new fixed bridle configuration, with a great product clip shot in Hood River with team rider and colleague Sam Medysky.
