Buy a powerkite

Are you looking for a good power kite? For a good mattress kite, Telstar Surf is the right place! Maybe you have seen it before, people who are busy controlling their kite on the beach, a meadow or anywhere else. These kites, also known as mattress kites, are also called powerkites. Powerkites can be used for hobbyists as well as for preparation for, for example, kite surfing.

At Telstar Surf you will find especially Peter Lynn and Cross Kites in the range. This kite brand has been a leader in quality and flying characteristics for years. Besides the mattress kites, Telstar Surf also has kite accessories and Kheo mountain boards. 

Different types of powerkites

Within our range, there are different mattress kites to obtain, but what are the differences? There are mainly 2 different types of kites, namely the mattress kites and stunt kites. Mattress kites are more like the kitesurf kites that you use to go on the water and are easy to control. These kites are also called powerkites and are available with 2, 3 or 4 lines. When you are a beginner, we recommend you take a 2-line kite, as you get the hang of kite flying you can look at a 3 or 4 line powerkite. Then there are the stunt kites, which feel more aggressive because of their high speed through the air, ideal for crazy turns and other tricks to perform!

The right size powerkite

When buying a mattress kite, it is important to choose the right size kite. Several characteristics can be looked at to see which kite fits you best: 

  • Body weight
  • Wind force
  • Level of power kiter

The heavier you are as a kite rider, the longer you can hold a kite when the wind gets stronger or, the bigger the kite you can control.  

Depending on your weight, you can choose the right size mattress kite. For adults, most will choose between 2.5 and 4 square feet. Of course, you want your powerkite to be as versatile as possible that you can use it as often as possible in the right weather conditions.

Below is a size chart for choosing the right size. Please note! This is and remains an advice. It obviously differs in which wind force you fly and whether you are a boy or a girl. If in doubt, always ask our colleagues at Telstar Surf for advice.

Peter Lynn's kites are known for their combination of flying characteristics, quality and price. In addition, Peter Lynn's range consists of power kites for both the novice and experienced power kiter.


Kheo offers a nice range of mountainboards. Mountainboards can be used on land in combination with, for example, your mattress kite. A mountainboard makes powerkiting even more fun.
