RRD Cotan V3 classic
The C.O.T.A.N. (cut off tail and nose) V3 has only undergone minor changes compared to the previous versions. For those who don’t know, the COTAN is a high performance board that carries less length and momentum in comparison with a traditional board shape. This shape allows you to feel exceptionally free and fast in everything you do. The reason this shape is magic is simple, it rips!
The V3 has a newly redesigned tail shape with wingers and rounded fishtail ends. The reduction of area in the last section of the tail, behind the wingers, has allowed improved turning at high speeds, when riding waves, or when pushing to get the maximum pop out of your freestyle strapless sessions. The new Cotan is also slightly thinner, only in the tail area, to really boost the pop effect when jumping on flat water. It’s now possible to really sink that tail and “stop” the board before you send the kite!
AVAILABLE IN 3 different sizes – all equipped with 5 fin boxes.
When deciding what size Cotan to choose, we recommend going 5 or 6 inches shorter than what you normally ride on a classic surfboard shape.
- Redesigned tail shape with wingers and rounded fishtail ends, offers precise control, improved turning, and increased pop potential.
- Deep concave throughout the whole board with a flat tail released by a progressive rocker with tail kick
- Thin rails from nose to tail, super thin profile throughout
- Five fin boxes, so you can choose between thruster or quad
Shinn Jackson Chromatic
A favourite amongst debutant and experienced foilers alike the Jackson Chromatic is lighter, stiffer and more agile than any other ABS technology foil board on the market whilst maintaining the legendary durability and ease of use it’s famous for.

A one piece pad provides the perfect blend of comfort and sensitivity with the perfect balance between grip and durability. The Chromatic also features our unique Trim Track foil connection allowing you to tune your ride and achieve your preferred foil position in the board.
Available in 3 lengths, 140cm perfect for foil beginners or heavier riders, 128cm for intermediate to advanced riders either strapped or strapless and 112cm for the more experienced riders looking for a minimalist deck with perfect travel-ability.

The Spade will make your aerial maneuvers look pro with its generous amount of pop. The Step Rail creates our signature concave deck which is perfect for strapless trick riding.

Shinn Superking Chromatic
The Superking range is dedicated to performing in lighter winds and for heavier riders. Not every spot is deep enough to foil nor every rider willing to loose time on the water to learning again. Maximum fun in minimum winds with a board that won’t hold you back if the wind increases a few knots.
TT riding is not a crime, the Superking is unashamedly directed towards those previously frustrating days where your regular freestyle model just won’t come to life. Using an adaptation of our Split Concave base, this range provides for exceptionally early planning, a smooth and comfortable upwind ride all combined with a performance that will both surprise and delight. By combining a naturally efficient rocker with bilateral flex tips the Superking provides carving, edging and POP normally associated with a higher wind range dedicated design.
More kiteboarding is better than less kiteboarding – we don’t all have the luxury of perfect conditions but the Superking guarantees on-the-water action that won’t have you rushing back to the beach if the wind increases a few knots.
