Pro-Surfboards - 2014 Best Kiteboarding

Dec 19, 2013

Best Kiteboarding now has their first custom shaped kite surfboards available for distribution in Europe. Their ‘Made in USA’ model will come in 2014.

2014 Best Kiteboarding Pro Surfboards

Best advances surfboard technology with three new hand shaped pro-boards using their exclusive Tuff Tech Ballistic Surf Mesh.

After innovating the twintip market with their unique Basalt Fiber Tech construction, Best has been working hard to bring similar innovations to surfboard technology. New for this season are three hand shaped designs to cater for the needs of all surfers. Constructed with a classic PU Foam Core and Polyester lay-up for maximum flex and feel Best has taken their design one step further by building them with advanced Tuff Tech Ballistic Surf Mesh.

Tuff Tech Ballistic Surf Mesh uses high strength, low weight polymer fibers that are bonded together to create a durable, flexible and impact resistant mesh that can used in place of fiberglass. By using less fiberglass, Best has been able to trim hundreds of grams of weight from each of the boards and hugely improve the deck’s resistance to dents and dings. Tuff Tech Ballistic Surf Mesh allows Best’s shaper to create a lightweight surfboard with the magical flex and feel that PU boards are prized for yet with all the strength and durability of a much heavier and less flexible pop-out board.

The Stubby Pro redefines what a dumpster/fish style board should be and it’s perfect for tackling anything from knee high slop to punchy waves. For speed and control in smaller waves you need a wider board and that’s why we pushed the tail width and trimmed the overall length to keep the Stubby Pro loose in the turns. Hand shaped to be a real speed generator, the Stubby Pro is perfect for boosting big air and hacking tight turns.

The Smack pro takes our classic shortboard theme and improves every piece of the puzzle. With sharp rails and single concave to give you control for biting turns and rail to rail transfers, the Smack Pro allows you to handle the speed and to control the power in your turns. With an optimized volume distribution that is designed specifically for kiting in larger waves, the Smack Pro lets you own the big waves.

The Sting Pro delivers strapless perfection by combining classic hand shaping techniques with our advanced Tuff Tech Ballistic Surf Mesh to create a strapless board that combines perfect flex and feel underfoot with outrageous durability. Shaped with a narrow rounded tail and carrying less volume in the rails, the Sting Pro grips the water to counteract the lift that can be created when you transition your kite. With a narrower outline capable of charging at speed, the Sting pro is perfect for down the line riding. If you think straps should only be seen on flip flops and are looking for a hand shaped board to help you take your riding to the next level then it’s time to cut yourself loose and move up to the Sting Pro.

The pro-surfboard line-up all come ready to ride with a deck pad set-up and three future fins. All you need to add are waves. Expected shipping date is Q1 2014.
