Storm-Twin-Tip and the all redesigned Wing Lite-Wind

 

Highlights

The Wing has evolved into a mind-blowing machine in 2011. Riding has never been smoother or easier. The tip-to-tip radical concaves smooths out chop and makes for a very positive carving feeling. Tips are very thin and flexy with built-in torsion bars to maximize carving performance under load. This board is truly a “session saver”. I am 100Kg and can stay upwind on this board in 10-knots....AMAZING! Wide tips and unique outline known as ‘parabolic sidecut’ enable planing and rocket you upwind. The wider tips give an unbelieveable “load and pop” even in light condition. This board seels like snowboarding in bottomless powder. Our quality wood core and composite construction enhance riding properties as well as ensuring that your board will last for years to come.

Sizes:  146x45, 153x45, 161x45, MSRP:  $679USD

New technologies

Wood core technology with torsion bars let us engineer the flex on the Litewave boards to perform in certain circumstances.

Kites

2011 Trix – This is our medium aspect ratio kite that is super stable and quick turning.    Perfect for wake-style, wave-riding, or beginners.   Built with more stitching and reinforcement than any other kite on the market, the Trix is sure to last many seasons to come…even in the surf.
 
2011 Sonic -  Now in its 5th generation, the refinements on this kite make it a super efficient upwind machine that is suitable of the rider that likes to go fast and boost big, floaty jumps.   The Sonic is our high-aspect SLE kite that has lighter, yet fully adjustable bar pressure.     The quick-release on both models can be put back together with 1 HAND!!!   (see attached video)

2011 Storm Twin-tip: 
  The 2011 Litewave storm delivers unmatched grip and upwind performance with evolved features like tip-to-tip single-concave, parallel outline between feet and ultra-thin outline with torsion bars for a flex pattern that allows end-to-end flex while minimizing fin ‘twist-off’.
 
2011 Litewave Quad-Surf: A pulled in bat-tail outline and a faster-gun style rocker allows this board to really drive through and keep speed in the bottom turns, while the quad-fin configuration gives incredible grip for snappy off-the-lips. The quad fin also makes for a wave board with limitless top end speed yet very snappy and responsive feel
