  • what exactly is the kite construction?

    After damaging 2 FST boards kitesurfing strapless i would like to know a little bit more about the so-called kite construction to be able to confidently order one such board.

    Is a kite-construction board an fst-board with extra layers of fiberglass?
    Is the PVC denser or thicker in the deck?
    Are there any extra patches (pvc or bamboo) under the foot placements?

    Please kindly enlighten us potential customers.

    Hi Alberto, Are you on our kite specific models which are intended to take on the extra impact of kiting? We use a slightly heavier 1.5lb core and reinforce the deck areas where your feet are. You can see some of the tech here:
