2017 CABRINHA XCALIBER

COMPETITION FREESTYLE

This board is a no nonsense, high performance freestyle board that is guaranteed to put a massive grin on any advanced/intermediate riders face. Its high performance stems from the extensive use of carbon during construction that stiffens the flex pattern, for maximum response and mind boggling pop. The rocker line allows for great drive into powered freestyle moves while retaining upwind performance. The double concave with cantered rail panels shift into a quad concave tip bottom shape. This channels the water flow for maximum edge control, board response, and smooth landings. A single pour, ultra-bond liquid polyurethane elastomer around the entire board is the ultimate impact resistance.

2017 F-ONE TRAX HRD CARBON SERIES

PRO FREESTYLE

The TRAX HRD CARBON series has been designed as a professional freestyle board. It absorbs chop beautifully thanks to its thinner tips and remains responsive by maintaining a flatter deck shape. Its construction utilizes a carbon sheet to improve the strength and weight ratio of the board. The HRD Helical rail is a three part design, thin and defined in the centre and thick near the feet, then thinning out again towards the tips. It feels like you are riding above the water, not on it...

 

2017 SLINGSHOT REFRACTION PRO

WAKESTYLE / PARK

The Refraction has been developed with Pro rider Sam Light and is a competition level freestyle board that is just as at home in the cable park as it is with a kite. It has a Dura-Glide base that can handle the abuse of sliders and kickers as well as an aggressive rocker and stiffer flex profile. It is designed to be ridden with boots and the Carbon Bedrock Inserts make it feel absolutely solid on the water. It also comes standard with inverted NACA tech channels on the tip and tail that provides a flattened surface for presses and slides on obstacles.

 

2017 F-ONE ACID HRD CARBON SERIES

PRO NEW SCHOOL

The ACID HRD CARBON come with the revolutionary HRD design as well as a carbon layer construction for increased strength to weight ratio. This board has a single concave and central channel that give it early planning and a smooth ride, without sacrificing aggressive pop that would satisfy any new school rider.

2017 AIRUSH APEX TEAM

COMPETITION FREESTYLE

This is the freestyle weapon of choice for team rider Alex Pastor, the World Championship title holder. This year the board has an increased stiffness in the tips to accentuate pop and drive, as well as a dual rocker and deep channels for powered riding. The pop is increased by the Carbon Torsion working with the shape that allows the board to tension up during load and the release to provide an aggressive launch of the water. The combination of a wood core and laminate provides a smooth landing even on the most powered tricks by being able to absorb the impact. The lightweight top sheet outer layer is durable without adding unnecessary weight.

 

2017 SLINGSHOT ASYLUM

FREESTYLE

The Asylum is an aggressive freestyle board. Its fast top-end speeds, insane pop and aggressive edging is all designed for the progressive rider looking to pull some big freestyle moves. The largest rocker of the Slingshot range combined with a durable base layup make it an ideal board for those who ride all styles of freestyle. Its flex pattern and aggressive laser-cut channels are made for speed, grip and superior hydrodynamics.

 

2017 CRAZYFLY ELITE

FREESTYLE

Crazy Fly have taken no shortcuts with the Elite, focusing on creating a board that uses the most advanced technologies and materials as possible. It is not your average full carbon fibre board, it is made with HMX-CF carbon that is so strong, they were able to use only one layer on each side. This means that the board is extremely light with a comfortable medium flex, it feels light and lively on the water and is able to absorb chop effortlessly. The board is also designed with load and pop dynamics, giving it great launch capabilities. The Elite is a masterpiece of light weight carbon engineering and demonstrates the outstanding expertise of CrazyFly technology. The board comes in a one of a kind custom tailored hard case. This unique boardbag has been designed to always keep the Elite board safe during travels and trips to the beach.

 

2017 CABRINHA CBL

 

WAKESTYLE / CABLE

The 2017 Cabrinha CBL is made specifically for parks and wakesyle and has been designed to be ridden with boots. It has a very aggressive rocker line, making the board very stiff for those hard landings. The extreme rocker also makes it more challenging to go upwind so the stiffness helps play that part and allows it to track upwind for the kite sessions. Because the board has heavy concaves you can ride it with or without fins and still have the grip that you need. And of course, it was designed with extra strength for hitting all of those obstacles. Stiff pro level flex requires a more aggressive riding style rewarding you with explosive pop and rock solid landings.

2017 CRAZYFLY RAPTOR LTD

 

FREESTYLE

The Raptor LTD is designed for the intermediate to advanced rider and is one of the best boards CrazyFly have produced. It has the same shape as the Raptor but is fully constructed of extremely light carbon. This board glides over chop like a hot knife on butter and provides loads of mind blowing pop. It has Gullwing Double Concave Channels that gives it tons of grip, even when at speed. New for 2017 is the Nano Glide Skin, a series of micro channels that help the board track and improves upwind capabilities. It also helps the board glide and generate speed easier as well as being much more resistant to scratches. New insert position makes the Raptor LTD compatible with wake bindings.
