2014 FREESTYLE WAVE
2014 Freestyle Wave The Freestyle Wave has been an underground legend that is now being released as one of my main models. The Freestyle Wave is the link between surf and air, it has had great feedback from those who want to ride waves but also have the ability to huck huge jumps. Given its compact size and low volume, the Freestyle Wave also works well in river swell and choppy surface conditions. It has a smooth yet tight turning radius which allows for radical small wave slashing. I have prototyped different kiteboard constructions for over 13 years (surfboards over 25 years), testing hundreds of composite combinations to finally arrive with a superior flex pattern that is built into the Freestyle Wave. This design is built in the same thin and light weight custom epoxy construction as my twin tips and M-Series boards. My custom epoxy construction is a blend of the most advanced composites vacuum bagged to the highest quality PVC foam cores. This design is most popular in the 4’7” to 5’0” size range.
2014 Pro-X The newest design innovation in the high performance kite surf category. The Pro-X has been developed over the last 10 years and perfected into a very stable yet high performance, primarily strapped, surfing machine. The Pro-X has increased concave and an accelerated rail curve through the fin area, this gives the board a high degree of maneuverability at any speed and great control in high speed situations. Compared to last years Pro Model, I have widened the outlines slightly on boards up to 5’11”, this gives the designs greater planning ability in light wind and de-powered wave riding. We can adapt the magic to any custom size, tail shape, and fin configuration. The 2014 Pro-X is custom made in Hawaii using my very durable XPS foam and can be ordered in either poly or epoxy construction. Color shown comes with your new custom. If you have something special in mind for the color of your new board, I can quote on request any custom graphic. The Xcon is most commonly ordered in sizes 5’6’’, 5’10’’, and 6’0’’.
2014 Joya Girl
2014 Joya Girl The 2014 Joya Girl was exclusively developed for the girls of kiteboarding. Most production boards are built for the heavier male rider, they usually have too much volume which can be a very bouncy ride for a lighter rider and require more leg power to turn. The Joya Girl has a thinner on the rail and narrower tail which gives the board more sensitivity, maneuverability, and a stable ride. This design also features a rocker line developed specifically for stability and effortless maneuverability. The 2014 Joya Girl is custom made in Hawaii using my very durable XPS foam and can be ordered in either poly or epoxy construction. We can adapt the magic to any custom size, tail shape, and fin configuration. Color shown comes with your new custom. If you have something special in mind for the color of your new board, I can quote on request any custom graphic. The Joya Girl is most commonly ordered in sizes 5’0’’, 5’3’’, 5’6’’.
YT5 / YT5 Wing / YT5 Pin-The YT series
John Amundson YT5 / YT5 Wing / YT5 Pin-The YT series The YT5 is the surf design that started a wave riding movement and still is one of the best surfboards in small to medium sized surf. These designs are some of my original kite surf designs that still work very well in small to medium sized surf. From the feedback I get, the YT designs work best in the 4’10” to 5’6” size range. All my surf designs can be made in epoxy or polyester construction.
2014 Air Flow This design works incredible in small onshore conditions for those who want to take their strapless wave riding to the air and want the maneuverability of a smaller board. In onshore wind conditions the wider nose and mid-point catch wind better, to help keep the board glued to your feet, compared to traditional strapless surf designs with narrower noses. The Air Flow’s curvy outline contributes to its maneuverability and gives the rider the ability to send it on a moments notice. This design works best in smaller sizes, I recommend at least 2 inches shorter than your height. The shorter length allows for a high degree of maneuverability and makes strapless airs effortless. This design can be riden either strapped or strapless. The 2013 Air Flow is custom made in Hawaii using my very durable XPS foam and can be ordered in either poly or epoxy construction. We can adapt the magic to any custom size, tail shape, and fin configuration. Color shown is optional, every board is custom made.
Strapless 6 The new Strapless 6 has been extensively prototyped and tested for strapless or strapped riding. This design has a very stable ride which helps the rider maintain control but also has high performance while surfing. The smooth rocker line, medium volume, and lightweight lend to great light wind or the freedom of flying a smaller kite. We can discuss your physical size and the conditions you ride in to determine the best custom sized Strapless 6 for you. This design comes with XPS Foam which lends itself to light weight and durability. The Strapless 6 can be ordered with full pads, tail pad only, or without pads. I always have both my strapped and strapless designs in the van and am ready for any and all conditions. Color shown comes with your new custom. If you have something special in mind for the color of your new board, I can quote on request any custom graphic.
Magic 55 The Magic 55 has been a very reliable design for more people (from small to large frame) in more diverse conditions (from light to strong winds). The wider outline in the front half of the board gives the rider easy and early planning. The overall increased outline and lower rocker line gives the rider great light wind ability but still remains manageable in strong winds. The wave performance is not as sensitive as the Pro Model, the Magic 55 has a smoother and more drawn out turn. Color shown comes with your new custom.
