Shinn Ronson Chromatic
All new (and yet surprisingly familar) the Ronson Chromatic is the latest version of this popular and test winning model, designed to fulfil the desires of the dynamic kiteboarder not willing to be limited by conditions or riding style.
We’ve utilised and developed the technological lessons learnt from the development of the Slicer Split TT to bring you a board that seamlessly bridges the gap between freestyle and freeride. The all new dual-track base channels add rail grip and radically increase efficiency achieving the seemingly impossible combination of better upwind and lightwind performance and improved top end grip at the same time.
Built to perform in marginal and radical conditions alike, the new Ronson Chromatic will take your riding to new levels when-ever, where-ever and what-ever.

Shinn Speedball 2013 – SUPER REA
Thinking outside the box is what it took to create this freeriding smoother and more dynamic kiteboard than it’s ever been before. Don’t try compare with other boards; The Shinn Speedball doesn’t fit into any other category of twin tip. One might be better off asking what it’s not , the Shinn Speedball Kiteboard is not a light wind board however it gets you riding before most, it’s not a surfboard but carves better than most, it’s not limited to any given wind range and it’s not held back by your riding skills. In fact, it won’t disappoint you no matter which day you ride. Speedball is our 4-wheel-drive, it will take you anywhere, anytime, anyhow … with your fingers* in your nose ;-)
Shinn ADHD Chromatic
The ADHD Chromatic is our highest performance deck. Stiff enough to perform yet comfortable enough to enjoy we’ve built an entirely new hull concept to bring you the best in Freestyle and Big Air as the conditions dictate.
New Full Length Drive Channels increase control for handling the massive power levels required for explosive moves and combined with the Tunnel Concave Tips work to stop the fins catching or rocker flattening when the landings don’t go quite as planned.
Whether competition freestyle of KOTA air style Mega Loops are your thing (or both when conditions allow) the ADHD Chromatic inspires confidence and delivers on performance through all conditions.

Shinn Shinnster Chromatic
Durable, Strapless, Freeride
What is the Shinnster? It’s not a wave board and it’s not a skimboard.. the Shinnster is a kiteboard designed for strapless riding. Flat water skate style, small onshore wave playing, no fins, 53mm fins, 80mm fins…. There are no rules, grab it and do whatever comes to mind.
Maintaining the rocker and flex pattern from the original the Shinnster Chromatic is compact and “trickable” without influencing the critical rail length needed to achieve the powerful upwind and drive it’s famous for. Our Jet Stream tail channels increase the tail grip whilst using smaller fins to provide a better balance of sliding skate style moves and a more aggressive aerial style. Supplied with 53mm fins and 3D shaped deck pad add 80mm fins to tune your ride how you like it.
The Shinnster Chromatic is not only fun to ride but surprisingly easy to get the best out of too. Don’t confuse this board with other similar looking concepts out there, this is a high performance ride that works in a huge array of conditions

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.
