Range of sizes available to demo, come and test them out
Stable with quick, responsive turning, durable construction, forward flying and fast through the air making it fantastic on the wave but all very good at boosting big jumps, the RRD Religion 2012 is a fantastic all round kite
Excellent condition, little use, still crispy and bright. Just a couple of small pro repairs on the canopy which do not effect the kite at all
Available kite only or complete with Brand New RRD Global V6 or V7 bar and lines. It will also fly on any 4 line bar so the used bars we have for sale will work on this kite.
The 2012 Religion MKII is the end result of years of non stop testing and development in the most diverse wave conditions in the world, with all rider levels. The first thing you’ll notice when you are using a Religion, is its quick turning and stabilty in the air. This is a feature that identifies, first hand, a basic concept of a good start for a real wave kite. The 3 Strut configuration has been introduced by us with the first Religion MKII and since then, it represents the key design base of any ideal wave kite. 3 struts means: lighter weight, stronger construction, faster turning kite.
Its natural drifting ability and huge depower, make it the perfect kite to ride waves without moving the kite, and using the wave speed to ride in “perfect world “ conditions. In onshore conditions the turning speed, stability and superquick recall ability even when the side lines are not under tension make it an unbeatable wave machine, allowing you to ride waves anywhere, anytime.
RRD's goal this year has been to improve this kites in all of its former performance aspects. A new thicker diameter leading edge design on the small sizes has further improved the stability of the kite when the wind is strong and gusty. The bigger sizes have instead gained tremendously in terms of power delivery and stability.
All the RELIGIONS MKII are now easier to be de-powered, to allow you release the pull in any unwanted circumstances. Controlled power is what you want in any wind strength and direction.
Two new sizes have been introduced: a 10.5 and a 12m to improve light wind wave kiting performance. These two new kite sizes are now slightly lighter compared to the bullet proof construction of the sizes from 9 down, to allow a better response from 8 to 16 knots , when the conditions are really marginal to get going and surf.
A great direct bar feedback combined with ultimate turning speed, make the new Religion MKII a great kite for strapless freestyling, with great jumping ability and control while in the air. Every panel of the inflatable structure, from the struts to the leading edge, is built with a special heavy duty stitching system. The stitching areas are internally reinforced with a strip of adhesive dacron, creating a solid base for durability.
All the exposed areas, like tip ends and leading edge seams that are subject to abrasion, are reinforced with a woven Kevlar/PU fabric to prevent wear.
Our single pump inflating system tube is covered with a soft PVC protection to prevent possible damage from plastic parts while folding the kite, and the inflating tubes are fixed to the kite through a neoprene sock, locked into place with velcro.
The rear pigtail setting allows you to change to 3 different settings: medium power and turning speed as factory setting, a most power and quickest turning speed on the top setting and least power and slowest turning on the bottom setting.
Now you have no more excuses not go out and ride waves. But remember, before buying anything new, always make sure you find the time to compare your kite with the new one in the conditions you are used to riding.
Your are the best one to judge what you need - come and demo the kites, we have range of sizes available for testing.

One of the most popular wave kites on the market, the RRD Religion has proven itself in the waves again and again. With many many Cape Town hours going into the R&D process you know that this is no ‘production line’ kite,
