LIGHTWIND WEAPON SUPER EARLY PLANNING FANTASTIC UPWIND PERFORMANCE The Spike is designed to get people kiting in the lightest of wind conditions and therefore they have a unique shape concept. The large surface area in combination with the flat rocker gives the board super early planning. Of course upwind performance in light wind conditions is nearly as important as early planning. The asymmetrical concave and the straight center part generate unmatched upwind ability. Meaning you can not only get going, but get upwind in the lightest of breezes.
163: Ultimate light wind performance, best upwind performance, really easy to ride. Get going before everyone else!
153: The 153 has slightly less low end than the 163 but being shorter means that you really can load it up to boost some proper jumps!
141: The 141 is a mix between a freestyle board and a light wind board. The board is the perfect match for all living at light wind or gusty locations who like to do lots more than just cruising.
