Thanks for that, Chris.

Do you have a release window for these yet? Will it be sometime after the Kitesurf show in Hatteras?

ATB,

Thanks for info.

I'd say the Freeride is a bit too long and the Freestyle is a bit too short
All are fairly wide which is good plus
Pointy ends are a bit of inconvenience for handling and travel
All are fiberglass which means potentially more weight with all good and bad it entails

Short fins should assume a good concave profile but no info about rocker/concave on that page. I'm sure it's available somewhere

All said it's just my perception, interesting boards, I'd look closer or try

CAN A WAKE BOARD BE USED as a kite board?

The rocker is wrong on wakeboards but you can ride anything on water if you are good enough. Lou proved it when he rode a serving tray !

Back to the topic !

Nice to see HQ expanding to boards !
