Boards

Bronq Backspacer

Top of many riders “most wanted” list, the Bronq Backspacer was developed with one focus in mind – un-rivalled, plush riding enjoyment. Created to fulfil the freeride dream – the ability to adapt your riding to your mood, desires or simply the conditions on hand – our unique blend of paulownia/balsa core, bi and tri-axe carbon and Textreme top layer not only surpasses all previous generations of Bronq but redefines the standard for lightweight performance.

What can expect when you ride it?

Plush flex and extreme chop eating capabilities without feeling “spongy” or sluggish upwind, massive boosting grip and acceleration when you need it. Effortless rail-like carving without wearing you out in the process and great upwind ability on the lighter days combined with endless control when the days become wilder.

Features

  • Next-generation construction: Combining a balsa/paulownia wood core with bi and tri-axial-carbon laminate gives our lightest, most dynamic construction ever.
  • Split concave mould: First seen on the Ronson, this innovative shape enhances grip and softens the ride without losing efficiency.
  • Double stepped tips: Improved carving pop while maintaining upwind drive.
  • Constant curve rocker line: Consistent grip and fantastic pop with never a drop of water in the eyes.
  • Bite hi-visibility fins: Optoflex moulded composite fins for superior profile accuracy and lighter weight.

Shinnster Encore

An instant hit when launched in 2014, the Shinnster never fails to put a smile on your face regardless of the conditions. This year, we took a step back to see what we could tweak and improve to make this the favourite 2nd board for every rider. What is the Shinnster? It’s not a wave board, and it’s not a skimboard… The Shinnster is a kiteboard designed for strapless riding. Flatwater skate style, small onshore wave playing, no fins, 80mm fins… There are no rules, grab it and do whatever comes to mind.

Maintaining the rocker and flex pattern from the original this overhaul makes the Shinnster more compact and “trickable” without influencing the critical rail length needed to achieve the powerful upwind and drive it’s famous for. Our all-new Jet Stream tail channels increase the tail grip while using smaller fins to provide a better balance of sliding skate style moves and a more aerial style. Supplied with 53mm fins, add the new 3D shaped deck pad and 80mm fins to tune your ride how you like it.

The all-new Shinnster is not only fun to ride but surprisingly easy to get the best out of too. Don’t confuse this board with other similar looking concepts out there; this is a high-performance ride that works in a huge array of conditions.

Features

  • Jump proof technology: Jump it all you like, a strapless freestyle board that’s fit for purpose.
  • Jet stream tail channels: More grip in the tail that doesn’t interfere with skate style tricks.
  • Wax or Pad: Factory-applied 3D deck pad available as an optional extra.
  • Full wood core: The best strength to weight ratio available with long-lasting durability.
  • BITE Hi-Visibility 53 mm fins: Optoflex moulded composite fins for superior profile accuracy and lighter weight. 80mm fins available as an optional extra.
  • Adaptive Rocker: High flex rocker design gives outstanding performance in all water conditions.
  • 2-year warranty: Peace of mind with our 2-year manufacturing defect warranty (conditions apply).

Designed for the pure love of kiteboarding, the Superking 160 Comfort Fit is set to become an instant classic.

Foils

Foil Model K2

It’s two years since we tore up the rule book and introduced the Model P – a revolution for learning to foil and now we’re at it again. Even now, there is a chasm in terms of ability needed between beginner and true performance foils. We aim to close that gap and introduce the Shinn K2 foil.

Inheriting the ease of use, early starting and intuitive pitch control from the legendary Model P the all-new K2 has an abundance of confidence-inspiring stability and control that allows the rider to handle power comfortably and reach speeds that seemed impossible before. Rider further and faster without extreme front foot pressure, agility with stability and a fast track to a more advanced foiling level. With a similar rake and surface area to the model K, the secret to this foil is in the combination of the 2-stage anhedral front wing and high aspect, wingletted stabiliser perfectly balancing the foil through a range of speeds.

If the P wing was responsible for re-writing the rule book on entry-level foiling get ready for the K2 to do the same for the next generation of high-energy freeriders.

Features

  • Hi-modulus carbon: Medium-high aspect wing – 866 cm2.
  • Hi-modulus carbon: Winglet stabiliser – 290 cm2.
  • Versatile speed range: Take off around 12 kph with top speeds > 55 kph.
  • Multiple mast lengths: Available with 40, 60, 75 or 90 cm mast (recommended mast is 90cm).
  • Strike resistant design: Top mounting for the delicate composite wings protects them from accidental bottom strikes.
  • Quik-fit plate: Fast and easy foil attachment to any board (165 x 90 bolt spacings).
  • Deep socket M6/M8 compatible plate: Deep socket for extra stiffness you can use this foil with m8 or m6 mounting hardware.
  • Modular design: Fuselage compatibility with all other Shinn wings and stabilisers.

Foil Model K

Speed range, stability, great pitch control and amazing carving. It reads like a shopping list for your next foil, but the new model K does do it all. Inspired by the need for a foil to fill the gap between the impossibly easy to learn on P foil and high-speed Model F, the model K represents our vision for the perfect x-over, multi-purpose foil.

Riding your P with ease but not looking to make life hard for yourself by moving onto a high speed, high technique dependant free race foil? The model K was developed with “2nd season” foilers in mind and was designed to ensure your progress remains as fast and painless as your first season on the Model P was. Impressive low speed starting and a high angle of attack stall resistance means you don’t need the footwork of a ballerina to master the tricky footswitches required for flying tacks and gybes and yet lock it down and pour on the power and the model K accelerates and tracks assuredly with a feeling far more often associated with high-performance race or free-race foils.

Strapless action, light wind cruising, transition mastery – massive functioning speed range and easy pitch control mean the model K fulfils the needs of even the most advanced foilers looking for something other than just flat out speed.

Features

  • Carbon Re-enforced Mid aspect ration Wing: Medium-High Aspect Wing 866 cm².
  • ST2 Inverted Profile Stabiliser: 240cm² with integrated yaw control.
  • Versatile Speed range: Take off around 12 kph with top speeds >45 kph.
  • Multiple Mast Lengths: Available with 40, 60, 75 or 90 cm mast (recommended mast is 90 cm).
  • Strike Resistant Design: Top mounting for the delicate composite wings protects them from accidental bottom strikes.
  • Quik-Fit plate: Fast and easy foil attachment to any board with 165 x 90 plate spacings without removing the screws.
  • Modular Design: Fuselage compatibility with all other Shinn wings and stabilisers.
  • Padded Travel Case: Supplied in a padded case for minimal space and peace of mind when travelling.
