Striving for perfection - a letter from the owner

In 1981, aged 14, I shaped my first surfboard in my parent's garage on the Island of Fehmarn. Since then, my life has been dominated by my fascination with wind and water.

My master’s title at the German Windsurf cup in 1999 was not primarily due to skill but rather to the striving for perfection in the manufacture and fine tuning of materials. This striving for perfection has launched Hiss-Tec, with the manufacture of CARVED custom kiteboards on the Island of Fehmarn in the Baltic Sea, Germany, from the garage to the leader in custom manufacturing.

CORE Kites are “designed and approved by Hiss-Tec in Germany” – designed by experienced kiters and optimized with extensive test flights on the waters around the world.

This ensures the highest levels of performance as well as safety and is the cornerstone of our success.

With our quality and service we also strive for perfection. Longevity and value-maintenance are also absolute important attributes. During CORE production every detail is of the highest quality.

Enjoy the kiting and rip hard!

Bernie Hiss

Owner of Hiss-Tec Fehmarn


CORE Kiteboarding was a subsidiary company of Hiss-Tec Fehmarn, which also owns CARVED Custom kiteboards, a company already reputed around the World for technical innovation and quality. Since 2019 Hiss-Tec is named CORE Kiteboarding.

The complete Carved Team has been totally instrumental in the design, development and manufacture of Kites, with input from some of Europes finest riders to make sure these kites hits the button!
