Founder Florian van Rije combined his passion for kiteboarding and technique and built his first board in a shed in his backyard! Today, the boards are made by a team of professional shapers in The Hague. Since the boards are handmade, every board is unique and catered to the wishes of the kiter. Interested in a Lieuwe board?

10 Years of Handcrafted Custom Boards, the Lieuwe Way

“10 years ago, LIEUWE crafted his own kiteboard because he couldn’t find the right one for him. Today, we look back on 10 years doing things the LIEUWE way. Ours usually isn’t the easiest or the fastest, but we think the LIEUWE way is the right way. Your support from all over the world only fuels our determination to keep pushing. To develop the best board for everyone, without compromises. To raise the bar and never give up. To explore new heights and to say no to cutting corners. Especially when everyone else goes around them. At LIEUWE, we do everything to create that epic board that fits your unique performance and style.”

Shotgun

The Shotgun is designed to ride fast, cruise comfortably and get some solid altitude. Its 3D shape and deeper channels provide for a grippy but playful board. Since the introduction of the WOO, our (test) riders have been able to back up their claims of pumping huge jumps, leaving us speechless and proud.

Our standard Shotgun is a Dark Blue board with a White rail. Want to make your custom design? Fill in the details and we’ll contact you to go through the desired options, and will share a mock-up of the final design for approval.

Oceana

Aggressive and powerful style, we made sure that this rocker gets enough speed into your jumps. Yes, it’s fast! The bottom shape is a great combination of channels and a concave to have a grip at the right places. Our newly designed channels and concave on the bottom surface of the Oceana, alongside the thickness of the wood, contribute to the high stiffness of the board while keeping it light and super strong.

Ruben Len10 always preferred wide tips and A-symmetrical fins for great powerful takeoffs and controlled landings.

Personal Adjustments

We want to give you the best service possible. Before we start producing, we double-check what you want and think along with you to make you the best board. We adjust the pads & straps, colours, size and fin-size as needed.

Gold Level Eco-board

The best things about this project are that we partnered up with Sustainable Surf, who helped us create the world’s first gold-level Eco-board. By choosing wood from a sustainable source, using greener resin and reduce, reuse and recycle our production waste.
