Kiteboards

When it comes to kiteboards, we at MACkite have more than 150 years combined experience putting them to the test. Okay, that may be a bit of an exaggeration. Realistically, MACkite employees have around 60 years of combined experience on the water, and in that time we might have learned a thing or two about kite boards and kitesurf-specific boards. In fact, we have so much experience that we are so close to moving down to Florida during the winter, with margaritas in hand while the sun bakes our leathery skin.

In our well-aged (like a fine wine) wisdom, we know a thing or two about kiteboards. We have a great article discussing all of the possibilities of kites, boards, and their sizes. For the college-cram-night version, we can describe kiteboards as three different types: twin tip, directional surf, and race boards.

Twin Tip

Sporting a symmetrical outline, this type of board can be ridden on either side. This type of board is very versatile and can be used for any rider. Smaller Twintip kiteboards are used for freestyle, while larger boards are used for light wind, new riders and larger riders.

Directional Surf

Very similar to a surf board, this board has a definite tip and fail. Mostly used for waves, strapless riding or light wind days.

Race Boards

These boards have maximum speed availability and are great for light wind performance.

What about board sizes?

Good question. Board lengths are usually measured in centimeters (like a snowboard or skis). For example, a large beginning rider would typically learn on a 140-150cm board. You may see a second number also in centimeters; this is the board's width. Boards have become wider in the last 5 years. A board made in 2004 may have been 155x36. A similar light wind, big rider board built in 2011 would be 146x44. A 170lb advanced kiteboarder might ride a 132x40 (132cm long, 40cm wide) board. The larger the board, the less power needed to get onto a plane. The smaller the board, the more control you have at high speeds (opposite from skis and snowboards). Make sure to talk to your instructor during your lessons to decide which board will work best for you. A rock star wakeboarder can ride a smaller board much sooner than someone with no board skills.
