Shinn Waterbird Skimboard 2011

The Waterbird is our fresh new skim-board.
This bird features rounded ABS rails, twin tip functionality and a full coverage 3-D deck-pad bringing a whole new element to light wind, strapless fun.
With early starting like a conventional skim and “trick-ability” like a wake-skate no progressive rider can afford to be without one.

Shinn King George II 2011

The Shinn King George II is the XL in the Shinn kiteboarding range. The King is not just about being the first to plane but about ruling the water and having the most fun possible in light winds. The Shinn King George II was created to maximise your time on the water even in less than ideal conditions. Light-wind cruising can be awesome but should you feel the desire to push your boundaries then the King has plenty of built-in control and versatility for performance riding, ensuring you’re not rushing to the beach for a smaller board should the wind increase by a few knots.

Shinn The Player Kiteboard 2011

Are you a Player? Are you obsessed with the latest moves? This decks ride is all about performance - both yours and it’s own.
The Player II is a story of refinement, a painstaking process of tweaking and modifying. The hallmarks of insane edge grip, super high board speeds and effortless planing are retained but added to the blend is increased global flex for comfort and control and an all new 3-stage rocker profile dramatically improving your aggressive POP and reducing unwanted tip spray. One word of warning though - If everything's under control, you're going too slow!

Shinn Luigi Kiteboard 2011

Luigi uses a variation on the constant curve rocker through out his length. Some years ago this rocker would have been considered to be slow to plane and poor upwind but advances in flex control, concave hull shapes and of course kites now mean it can be used to provide un-paralleled control, limitless grip and completely spray free riding in all conditions

Shinn Gintronic Kiteboard 2011

Kiteboarding, made easy
The all new Gintronic is so ridiculously easy that some might call it cheating. Bi-lateral flex mould, exaggerated constant curve rocker, super tolerant outline, the Shinn Gintronic defies chop, flies upwind and planes on a summers breeze whilst all the time allowing you to think about what YOU want to do and not what your board ALLOWS you to do.
This board refuses to be categorized, it’s not freestyle and it’s not freeride, can we call it the worlds first funride board?
Directed towards any level of kiter who wants to ride and play, Gintronic fills a previously open slot in the Shinn range - with no strings attached.

Shinn Duke Kiteboard 2011

The Duke is the Shin surfboard. The result of 10 years of kite boarding development and 25 years surf shaping, this diverse trio cater for all water and wind conditions for both strapped and strapless action. Born in the Canary Islands and tested around the world, all 3 sizes offer speed and grip through the bottom turn and impressive snap off the lip. Simply riding a wave is not enough, you need to read it, feel it and rule it… get your Duke on and go ride.

Shinn Kiteboarding Capri GT 2011

Introducing the Shinn Capri GT, different for sure and part of a world without compromise! It's a flatwater, small wave carve hungry directional for lighter winds and flatter water. With a flat tail rocker and very flexible swallow tail it's very efficient for light-winds and upwind work, yet when pushed into a corner those wingers flex and it grips hard.

Shinn Kiteboarding The Monk Kiteboard 2011

This is a freestyle board for the mere mortals among us. The Monk offers untamed sailing without the limitations normally associated with this style of riding. Hyperflex tips (created using our new FS mould) and our new constant curve work together to create the easiest to access (yet limitless) ride ever seen. A back door into the high performance world of kiteboarding or simply reality personified - you decide.
