Program: Inflatable planing windsurfing free ride board
Our first inflatable planing freeride windsurf board.
We are particularly proud of this board since it has taken more than one prototype and more than 1000 hours of hard work in designing, moulding, testing and changing everything from zero. We have put together an unbeatable board that will make you enthusiastic about the way it planes, accelerates and reaches incredible top speeds! Specifically recommended for freeriding, this is the real first step towards and new way of windsurfing at full speed planing before a composite freeride boards.
First of all we have based the whole concept of the Air Windsurf freeride on the exceptional experience we have gathered with our exclusive SBS or Sandwich Dyneema Belt that allows to make inflatable boards that are 30% stiffer than a conventional board.
But for the Air Windsurf board we have gone one step further and used 3 x SBS Sadwich Dyneema BeLTS instead of only one like we use on our SUP boards.
3 x SBS Sandwich Dyneema beLTS mean 3 x times the stifness of a conventional Inflatable board, and this is exactely how this board will feel when trying to flex it.
It’s almost as stiff as an epoxy board! Once we have achieved a super rigid structure we have started to think of a special way to create an efficient way to make the board get on a plane as quickly as possible, jibe properly and make sure that you could stay upwind and go fast on a reach.
For this we have developed 2 x specific exclusive accessories that have been assembled into the board itself:
1) An exclusive ITB or Integrated Tuttle Box system that is moulded and glued inside the board. With this box we have been able to create a box and a fin system that has the same stifness as a composite board. A stiff box and fin will make this board plane, go upwind and fast as a real freeride composite board.
2) An exclusive SPSP Soft PVC Sharp rail Profile with a hollow chamber that allows to create a perfect water release off the board’s hull and rolls up perfectly and quickly without creatring wrinkles on the TUE line.
These 3 features together : 3 x SBS (Sandwich Dyneema BeLTS), the ITB (Integrated Tuttle Box) and the SPSP (Soft PVC Sharp Rail Profile ) are the backbone of the performance level of this extraordinary board range that is about to be introduced in the market and will be changing forever that way we think of windsurfing.
