Litewave Storm

Litewave Storm       
STYLE:  Freeride Twin
SIZE:    137 x 44 cm       
FINS:    4 cm G10   

The 2011 Storm combines design aspects of the popular Vision and Spirit boards, constructed with glass laminates over a full wood core. The Storm is a freeride, do-it-all shape that features a deep concave bottom that bleeds into flat along the rails but follows right through into the tips. The result is a board that rips upwind and smooths out chop considerably. It’s fast and easy on edge with some access to easy pop without an overly stiff ride. There’s some nice flex in the tips and the torsion bar technology ensures that the tips have flex but the fins stay engaged for good grip when you put the pedal down. The inside setting for stance is narrowed out for shorter riders while the outside setting matches the average a freeride stance. The Storm is a fun board to just cruise and have access to some freestyle pop, while the concave and softer flex in the tip smooth things out in less-than-ideal water conditions.

Footbed and Strap System
Litewave boards come equipped with the LW Lace-up sandal that has lots of contact with the top of your foot that boot style riders are accustomed to. The bed is soft and cushioned, and the toe ridge give some additional grip. Easy single-step installation will be appreciated for changing stance options or removing straps for traveling.
