The Spleene RIP Kiteboard represents a clear idea of how a Kiteboard needs to be shaped. We benefit from more than 30 years of shaping experience when we develope our product. This is especially noticable on the Spleene RIP Kiteboard, were always motivated to improve the standards for this board. No one tells us what’s good and what’s not. No matter if it’s easy planing, upwind performance, pop for jumps or smoothness or riding, only the sum of all these features will result in the perfect kiteboard for you. The new Spleene High Tech Line RIPs provide clear proof that you don’t need to waive anything to have a perfect kite day.
The Design Features:
The Spleene Door High Teck Lightwind Kiteboards shape detail is a double concave channel at the bottom of the boards. This allows for cleaner and earlier planing. When compared to a conventional double concave this underwater hull has got a parabolic cross section, specially designed by Spleene to provide significantly more grip due to the longitudinal guide of the sideways channel rails, even in choppy water. A development you can expect from Spleene. Only consistent development turns this concept into a Spleene High Tech Door. Compared to the previous models the new Door is now equipped with the Advanced Jet Bottom.
The Spleene Door Kiteboard stands for a unit of design and technology, which can only be provided by the original Door. As the inventor of the Door we have got this unique head start, which can be noticed immediately, in any condition, by any kiteboarder. The 2013 Spleene Door Kiteboards sporty overall impression coupled with a high level of comfort result in this special riding experience. Upwind and low-end abilities have set standards in kiteboarding within the last 10 years. Its concave outline, large surface and flat rocker line are responsible for this performance. However, these features alone are not sufficient by far to create a kiteboard that meets your and our demands.
The Design Features:
The specially shaped top side of the Spleen Zone Waveboard shifts the standing position substantially lower than in conventional waveboards and thereby improves the control of the board significantly. The unique shape of the “Zone” boards allows you to shape the scoop-rocker-line by shifting your body. The rails with large radius and Tucked under Edge Shape in the center of the board prevent miscut at radically surfed turns. The new zones are produced in solid Snow-Board-Construction and therefore almost indestructible. Test the new Spleene Zones and enjoy the incomparable Ride.

After a successful introductory year the 2010 Ocean Rodeo Go-Joe is promising to be everything we ever needed. Stronger, better, lighter, and easier to use. A great idea and an innovative product that is moving from beginners to wave riders and mainstream users. If you don't have one it's worth to check it out.
Traditional surfboard style leashes used to connect kiters with their boards have proven to be dangerous in both the water and on land. The GO – Joe™ is a new “leash free” tool to assist in the retrieval of your kiteboard without fear of being impacted or impeded by a leashed board. The GO – Joe™ is perfect for beginners and intermediates learning board recovery techniques. Advanced riders will appreciate the faster board recovery in extreme conditions or while learning new tricks.
What is it?
The GO – Joe™ is an inflatable tube structure attached to deck of the kiteboard that uses the natural forces of buoyancy distribution and wind to roll you kite board right side up and accelerate it down wind. These features combined with high visibility and additional floatation will make the use of surfboard style leashes in kiteboarding obsolete.
1. The unique hour glass design of the inflatable tube structure places the self righting buoyancy at a high pivot point. This distribution of flotation will power roll your board right side up if it lands foot straps down in the water, (foot straps down create drag, slowing the boards drift)
2. With the board right side up and foot strap resistance eliminated, the GO – Joe™ is positioned on the board forward of center allowing the wind to turn and sail the GO – Joe ™ down wind towards the rider. If the rider maintains their position with the kite at the zenith the board will simply sail downwind towards you.
3. The hour glass shaped design of the GO – Joe™ fits comfortably between the riders feet and does not restrict mobility. The hour glass shape also eliminates drag caused by spray from the boards rails
4. The GO – Joe™ is very light and durable using our proven manufacturing techniques.
Construction and durability:
1. The inflatable tubes are manufactured with the same techniques and materials used on our kite tubes. 110 micron PU inner bladder with HD Nylon outer cover. Bomber!
2. Deck mounting plate uses the same construction as our foot pad deck plates.
How to install the GO – Joe™
1. Simply screw the GO – Joe™ into the grab handle inserts found on any board. Pump-up the GO – Joe™ tube, and you are ready to ride! Deflate the GO Joe™ for easy storage and transport.
2. One size fits all; available in high visibility orange and yellow.

The F-One Platinum Pad has a unique process that allow to generate all possible forms while picking the best EVA foam density. Because a pad, it's those two essential things: a form and a foam. The F-ONE strap is fully adjustable to the size and shape of the foot and brings great comfort with a multilayer of different EVA density and its neoprene coating. The Straps Lock F-ONE facilitate the general installation because they are locked in independently from the strap. The straps lock are designed to give the strap the ideal angle and shape. Probably the most comfortable combo Strap / Pad on the market. The F-One Platinum pads are in general difficult to design because they must fit all types of feet. They must ensure the best connection with your board to have the best feel possible while riding, and absorb the impacts. With the straps, the pads must lock your feet in the ideal position. To obtain the highest quality pads, we have chosen an injected process that permits various forms and densities.
F-One Platinum Pad Technology Dual Density Foam - The upper layer is the softest, will absorb small impacts and will mold the pads to the exact shape of your foot. -The lower layer has a higher density and will absorb the strongest impacts. Injected Foam: The choice of the density and its inner quality of memorizing its form are essential for the pad's comfort and its durability. Hollow cones: To maximize the pad's cushioning and reduce its weight, we have placed holes where the pressure when riding permits.
F-One Platinum Pad Ergonomics Cant - Allows for the ankle to be positioned in the leg axis and to wedge the foot on the outside for the ideal riding position. Anti-Forward Profile: The height under the front section is higher to prevent forward slipping Anti-twist: The heel is clamped on the outside, thereby limiting the torque.

When we developed the 2015 Slingshot Glide Kiteboard for light wind conditions we took a different approach. Most light wind boards on the market are short and wide. This style can get you up and going but they ultimately lack control once you’re riding. The Glide’s concept focuses on an efficient longer narrower profile. It provides adequate surface area that gets you going in the lightest of winds.
The narrower width kicks at speed providing the rider with increased edge control. Since the rider can control the entire edge of the board the effective water line can be precisely increased or decreased; kite power management is done with ease. The Glide is the highest performance twin tip board available in the light wind category. In fleeting wind the Glide is a true session saver. Summer is short. Choose the Glide.

This pays off with great upwind performance, early planning, nice POP and extraordinary durability.
2015 Nobile Uniao T5 Features
2015 Nobile Uniao T5 Technology
APS TECHNOLOGY ADDED PRE-STRESS
APS Technology - Pre-stress. Prestressing means the intentional creation of initial tension in a structure for the purpose of improving its strength properties.
In kiteboarding, pre-stress allows the board to be loaded with energy during production. Storing the energy inside the board makes it a bit more stiff and much more torsion resistant, which results in astonishing POP. Pre-Stress technology also allows us to build thinner and lighter boards, yet still more durable.
ELLIPTICAL PROGRESSIVE CONCAVE
EPC - The Elliptical Progressive Concave combines the advantages of both a flat-bottomed board and concave. The tail area is completely flat, whilst the centre section of the board features concave. This shape benefits from earlier planning.
CAV - COMPLETE ANTI-VIBRATION TECHNOLOGY
CAV - Complete Anti-Vibration Technology - By using advanced core materials, laminates and variable flex zones, we managed to eliminate almost all vibrations that occur during the ride.
DYNAMIC ASYMMETRICAL SHAPE
Dynamic Asymmetrical Shape is designed around the Human Concept, to enhance your performance and work in harmony with your body. We have tailored the outline of the heel side rail to provide more grip, better upwind performance and maximum POP. On the weaker toe side, the curve radius is increased to improve the carving potential and comfort. At the same time DAS decreases the foot pressure necessary to hold an edge.
Honeycomb board - This aerospace product has found its sweet spot in kiteboarding technology as well. It's 90% lighter than wood, but has great durability.
Woodcore - There is no better material for a board core than wood. With its harmonious characteristic, combining strength, flex, light weight and vibration damping, wood is still the uncrowned king of core materials.
Triax - Triple Fiber Power - This layout of fibers transfers power directly to the edges and creates perfect flex. As a result the board features aggressive filling, quick response and harmonious flexibility.
