Shrike


Sizes

  • 5'4", 5'6", 5'8", 5'10", 6'0"

Features

  • The Shrike is all about high performance "surfing with a kite."
  • It will allow you to snap tightly in the pocket, or go way beyond verical and fin-free.  
  • It will square off the bottom tightly and with enough speed to fit twice the full-power-turns into a normal section - which allows you to keep tension on your lines and drift your kite.
  • Works great as a daily driver but really comes alive in bigger, more powered conditions.
  • Extra glass for durability but still maintains true surfboard weight and flex.

  • Single concave

Materials

  • MARKO composite “iFoam” for chop-dampening control, flex, maneuverability

Fin Setups

  • Thruster, quad, 5-fin

Custom options

  • Our stock kiteboards do not come with foot strap inserts.  For strapped riding, contact us for custom inserts.
