KITE FOIL BOARD
The Dolphin1 is a full composite board with a wood deck and bottom, it has PVC reinforcement under the heel area and a special shaped full concave deck. It allows your feet to be completely pointed down towards the nose and the middle part of the board. A correct foot and legs position is what you want to have when you foil. The rails have a special pronounced tucked under edge bevel, which reduces the impact when you come down from height.
So touch downs are very smooth when the nose touches the water and allows you to to quickly get up and go again again instead of nosedive. At the same time it has a nice and thin volume that helps the board to stay light; all these characteristics are perfect for a freeride shape. The size is 160 x 52 cm, so it is balanced for riders of any type of height and depending on your skills and preferences you can have around 10 cm of footstrap adjustment in the front and in the back, next to the different options of where to place the mast on the bottom.
- PVC reinforcement
- Comes with 3 adjustable RRD/Dakine straps
- 4 hole adjustable mast plate inserts
The front and rear wings of the hydrofoil work as lifting devices. The wings create a lifting force from the flow of water that travels across them at speed. This is the reason why they are built with a specific sectionaL profile:
The shape of the wings’ profile shall not be modified, filled and sanded. Doing so would alter the balance and prevent the correct operation of the kitefoil.
WARNING MESSAGE !!!!
In order to guarantee the correct behavior and performances of the kitefoil, the rear edge (trailing edge) of the wings must remain very thin, thereby making this part more fragile in case of impacts. During handling and use of the kitefoil, the user should be particularly cautious with these sharp areas in order to avoid any risk of injury.
