KA-Winch is a young, creative and innovative team of engineers from Germany with a sincere passion for wakeboarding and skiing. Established in 2009, KA-Winch consequently grew in manufacturing efficiency and winch building expertise and has become the No. 1 winch supplier in Europe. By closely working together with Pro-Riders in wakeboarding, skiing and snowboarding, KA-Winch also was able to design the best thought out winches currently available.
In the beginning there was an idea. We are passionate skiers and snowboarders and were looking for a way to continue our riding experience in the summer when all the snow was gone. Wakeboarding and waterskiing seemed to be the logical solution for this, but there was a problem: The nearest full-size cable was 1,5 h drive away...to far for after-study sessions. Therefore we decided to build our own wake-device and started with the construction of our first winch. It was made of heavy steel, took one week to manufacture but already featured the self securing feet. After we published our first wake-sessions on YouTube and Vimeo, we got loads of positive feedback and people started to ask us, if we could build a winch for them.
