Hakaze concept car could appeal to kitesurfers...
5 February 2007

Do you like kitesurfing? If so you might like this Mazda Hakaze concept car, which contains two kitesurfing boards, stowed neatly along the middle of the cabin.

That's because the Hakaze is a crossover concept, and kitesurfing, combining as it does the disciplines of surfing and kite-flying, is a crossover sport.

Using the floorpan and drivetrain of the CX-7 crossover, which goes on sale in the UK in June, the Hakaze is the third in a quartet of Mazda concepts that embody the firm's latest design philosophy, called Nagare, or flow.

If you'd like to see it in the flesh, you'll have to go to the Geneva motor show in March. In the meantime, we've got the next best thing: read Dan Stevens' impressions from behind the wheel here.
