Making the impossible possible

FREESTYLE PRO

There are only two programs in our windsurfing boards collections that get updated every year: the X-Fires for slalom, and the TwinTips for Freestyle. The reason in so doing is quite simple: every year we search new possibilities of increasing the performance level of the equipment so that our racing team gets the very best possible new details of shape, technology of construction and accessories package, so that they can have and edge on their opponents.This is where the RRD R&D custom factory can make a difference. Quick reaction timing on making new innovative designs and provide the very latest shapes to our teamriders around the world with production moulded boards.

Description

Features

The new TwinTips are the pure results of the last 6 month of non stop, blood, tears and sweat testing and modifying every possible detail on the boards. We have firstly analyzed the new manouvers that our teamriders wanted to perform during competitions that we can summarize into 2 categories:

Perform all the moves/tricks with more height

Top scoring manouvers are now combinations of multiple manouvers In order to achieve this result the riders need:

Faster top end board speed

More Pop, or capacity to get lifted out of the water Our design interpretation of these parameters has been: 2 cms shorter boards in order to achieve more POP, 1 cms narrower maximum outline width to achieve higher top end speed, 6 mm thicker volume profile of the board to allow easier landing in extreme, last second ”recovery”, and a supersharp tail edge to keep a super quick planing potential. We know that our design mix sounds like and impossible recipe, but looking at Jacopo Testa sailing, we are now sure that we have made it all possible!
