Strapped-in-special Thruster

A new pure blooded horse family of surfboards designed, tested and developed by Ralph Bachshuster. Specifically designed to be used for strapped-in riding, these phenomenal sticks are very fast, have so much grip and deliver so much security of hold and bite in the most extreme conditions you want to be riding in.

Developed and tested in Cape Town by one of the most influential and radical kiteboarders in the South African kite scene, the Barracudas are a new introduction in the
RRD kitesurfboards family.
