Kitesurfboards collection V2

The new most complete collection of kitesurfboards in the world. Well proven world class shapes built with a world class technology combining the magic of PU white foam, polyester resin and bamboo heel area. Control, flex, predictable behaviour, all what a real kite-surfer wants in a board. The most complete kitesurfboards range to date in the history of surf- kiteboarding. Simple, pure, essential, equipped with the very best accessories available in the market, from our exclusive new “1000 stripes” diamond groove 4 mms surf EVA pads with tailkick, you can now choose to ride with only the rear pad and wax on the rest of the deck for pure strapless hold-on “feel” or with two pads. In fact you can glue the front pad yourself depending on your style. They all come with Hi –density PVC reinforcement on the fin boxes and with the lastest special color edition with extra edge slots Future boxes. Best look and best performance and reliability. The 90 ° fiber angled Bamboo deck reinforced with biaxial 350 grms heel patches, prevents the heel denting and keeps a perfect flex of the magic PU/poly construction. All this is packed with the most innovative, world class shapes developed through tough testing all over the world by our kiteboarding team.

Try them on waves. Words end where kite-surfing begins.

Assopigliatutto K V2


 

The new shape is quite a lot thinner both in profile and rails compared to last years’ version, increasing the grip and manouverability. The board now comes in full quad configuration, increasing upwind performance and create a loose bottom turn feel with a super grippy off the top. The lower volume of this years’ model also helps to get a much lighter board in your hands. The perfect all round light wind/freestyle/hybrid small waves board for everyone to get used to a directional board.

Chiatta K V2


 

Just refined in few details, this iconic shape remains a small to mid size surf reference for any serious kitesurfer. The perfect blend of speed, early planing, grip and potential to massive air in any section of the wave. The Chiatta tail is being thinned out to increase the bottom turn hold at high speed, and the very last foot of the nose outline has been widened up slightly to improve
the bite when using the whole rail line. The rest is a simple but explosive mix of pure performance with lots of fun and no stress.

Huevo K V2


 

A totally new shape that incorporates the features of one of our best selling surf shapes “Rubacuori” with an increased nose rocker and thinner rails. The mix of a super wide outline and a reduced length make this egg (huevo) shape board a pure thrill when riding strapless on flat water for your freestyle/wave manouvers , but also a great fun board to learn how to ride small surf with lots of stability and quick turning potential.

Salerosa K V2


 

The totally new Quad squared-swallow tail boards developed and used by Abel Lago. The longer lasting program of boards in our collection developed over the years by Abel for onshore conditions, now moves one step forward. The quad fin configuration, combined with a totally re-designed rocker line , more similar to the new Maquina V2 but using slightly more tail kick , becomes a pure all round ripper from knee high to triple overhead high waves. A new reference in the panoramama of PRO quad kitesurfboards.

    Fantastic Kite Surf Board Range.
    I would love to check them out in real life to get a feel for them.
    For your web presentation check out DHD surfboard website.
    Would be great if you could give board volume but more importantly – a shot of the rear rails, tail shape and lift – with fins in – plus detail of rocker, and bottom shapes such as concave and V detail etc.
    Maybe drop off some of the fixed stickers – especially on the bottom.
    Instead supply the buyers with some stickers and they can place them where they want them. I do not want to look like a sponsored rider unless I am one. I love beautiful, clean high performance surfboards. Always happy to help out. Kim. Perth. Western Australia.

    Hi guys!
    Absolutely gorgious boards!!
    I hope that you will supply studio-shots for all sizes (top-view without distortion) of the boards like you did in the past!
    Sometimes, the different sizes look different…

    (for an example: I would be interested in the final outline of the ‘big’ Huevo)

    Furthermore, I am a little insecure, if 5’7″ (Huevo) or even 5’8″ (Chiatta) is a little small for me (95Kg, 6’5″ tall)…

    Do the boards come with fins?
    Do the boards come with front-footpads?
    If, are these pre-installed?? ( I hope not!!!!)

    Kind regards,
    Andi (Religion enthusiast!!!)

    • Malard says:

      Hi Andi,

      Huevo 5’7 or Chiatta should suit, the program is a little bit different…
      For pure surf, and less freestyle, also have a look on the Barracuda.

      Each board is coming with front footpads, not pre-installed.
      No fins and no straps are delivered with the board, but you can buy them separately at your RRD dealer. The fins are existing with 2 construction and 3 sizes (L, M, S). I would recommend L or M for you.

      Regards,
      By.
