What is Kiteboarding?
There is a sport that is like surfing, wakeboarding, and flying all at once. If you’ve ever been to Pismo Beach on a windy day, you will see over two dozen kiteboarders in the water or doing tricks high above it. Most of these riders are ordinary people that are simply addicted to this amazing extreme sport called kiteboarding.
Kiteboarding uses the wind to combine the aspects of surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and windsurfing into one extreme ocean sport. The kite, anywhere from 6-20 square meters, powers the rider through the water. The kite will have either 4 or 5 lines up to 27 meters long that connect to a control bar, which the rider pushes and pulls to control the kite in any direction. The bar hooks into the rider’s harness, which is most often worn around the waist. A board similar to a wakeboard or surfboard enables the rider to fly over the water.

"We’ve had some boards that are 99%, but we’re not gonna settle for that. Our whole goal is to build the perfect board…" – Joe Bark
20 years ago Surftech was created to bring new technology to the process of board building. Founder, Randy French, saw that the way boards were being made hadn"t changed for over 40 years. The old way wasn"t very durable, so a lot of boards ended up in landfills and the toxic materials weren"t kind to the environment. He made it his mission to bring revolutionary new construction technologies to the world.
The Wood Veneer Series was the first technology, resulting in beautiful, durable, precise boards created with a seamless construction process. It was embraced by many legendary shaper/designers and continues to be used in select models.
Randy kept pushing and looking for better materials and techniques that would enable him to exactly reproduce master shapes that were lighter, stronger and more ecologically sustainable. The result was the creation of Surftech"s Tuflite epoxy composite technology, which was a game-changer in the industry. After years of research and testing, Surftech was proud to be the first company to offer a real alternative to the fossil-based foam cores currently being used. The resulting “Natural Composite' core material is made from a renewable cellulose fiber that is sustainable and recyclable. Unlike the competition, our Fused-Cell cores are actually waterproof and have remarkable flex properties, retaining incredible structural integrity for years of enjoyment.
The evolutionary progression continues and Surftech has developed a wide variety of technologies that were each developed with specific characteristics in mind. Surftech continues to be the SUP leader, and this is why everyone from the world"s top designers to world-class athletes have chosen to work with us.
