“The Ride project came about with the mindset that kiteboarding should be easy. To this end, we created a kite and board combo that delivers easy control and use with no loss of performance.
The Ride board features a single concave bottom and a medium flex allowing the rider to focus on having fun. The outline has been tuned for early planing and control. The modern tip design prevents spray from hitting the rider’s eyes.
The board is packaged with simplified Ally bindings and softer footstraps. The baseplate features both angle and width adjustment. The pad has multiple density EVA which cradles the foot. The 5.0cm fins enhance the board’s early planing characteristics, and tracks nicely when the wind picks up.” ~ Ian Ponting, Naish Board Designer
