Custom Kitesurf Package Deal 2020

Custom Kitesurf Package Deal

We can put together any custom kitesurf package deal with the latest & greatest kit or if you’re trying to keep within a budget, we often have equipment from the previous year(s) which can save a fortune.

We always make sure we offer the most competition prices available on any brand of equipment.

We, along with our experienced coaches, will be sure to suggest the most suitable equipment for YOU, rather than what’s in stock and needs selling. Not every kite or board is suitable for each individual, it’s a very personal sport, everyone is different and it’s expensive to make changes in 2 months time because it doesn’t work for you or doesn’t fit properly.

It’s always our suggestion to come in store so you are able to try items on and see them in the flesh, but we realise for some people this isn’t realistic which is why we offer a next day delivery service on most our products and a free returns / exchange policy.

We know kitesurfing can be expensive, which is why we also offer finance over a 12 month period to break down the outlay. The good news is that once you have your custom kitesurf package, there’s very little else to purchase and the sport is very cheap.

2020 Duotone Entity Ergo (NTT) Straps & Pads

2020 Duotone Entity Ergo (NTT) Straps & Pads

The revolutionary 2020 Duotone Entity Ergo is setting the new benchmark in hold, ergonomy, safety and comfort.

These are super comfy, super supportive and extremely adjustable to give you the perfect fit. With different sized pads and straps, plus the various options for width, height and stance you can set the Duotone Entity 2020 Ergo pads and straps to your desired set up – Come and try them in our shop and on our demo boards

The skeleton of a foot consists of 28 bones. The foot bones can be divided into following groups: tarsal bones, metatarsal bones and phalanxes. 20 muscles and over 114 tendons and ligaments ensure the required flexibility and stability of the bones to each other. A fine nerve and blood vessel network supplies the surface and deeper muscles above and below the foot. This is why you need the new ergonomic NTT. The choice of four different sizes allows you to find the exact NTT which fits you.

This year the economic EVA pad in combination with the toe padding is the guarantee to always have the right grip, an optimal pressure distribution with maximum comfort. A stiff strap connection keeps your feet at the right place. It also keeps the whole strap closed in any conditions. This new ergonomic NTT gives relief to overstressed nerves and prevents fatigue and pain. Your feet will get less tired and you’ll stay on the water longer. The ergonomic NTT footpads with the adjustable heel pads help to reduce pressure on the heel and even avoid shocks on the entire body. This helps alleviate long-term foot, back and knee pain. An additional feature is to stick the screws of the pad on the bottom of the pad, so you don’t lose them whilst travelling.

Size Check

The new Entity Ergo is a tailor made binding system with a perfect fit to your foot. During a long developing process we realized, the most accurate way to measure feet for a Kiteboarding binding, is to measure the sole of your foot without toes. To find the best fitting size of your Entity Ergo, measure from the top of the midfoot, between the 2nd and 3rd toe, till the end of the heel. As the perfect fit is very important for your kiteboarding experience, please follow this measurement advice and also check the graphic.

  • The reworked toe area creates an incredibly comfortable and more streamlined fit, as well as eliminating any chances of pinching or creasing in and around the foot.

FREE boardbag and snapback hat with this board! Bag and snapback brand and colour may vary from image.

A classic do-it-all surfboard should, a traditional shape with a modern twist, this high-performance board excels in every kind of wave.

The 2020 Duotone Wam in classic construction has also been completely re-designed from the ground up, and is exactly the same shape like the Pro Wam to remain on the cutting edge of high performance surfing. Slightly shorter and wider than it’s predecessor and with more width and volume under the front foot, the WAM is the embodiment of the high performance squash-tail kite-surfboard. At home in everything from small onshore waves to pumping down-the-line surf, the WAM will never disappoint you. The new WAM is noticeably faster, more lively and agile than the previous models thanks to a slightly narrower tail and rounder outline, giving you a dynamic and exciting ride no matter the conditions.

Characteristics

Board Features

RESPONSIVE FLEX

Using bamboo in our surf boards, we take full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help us to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!

MULTIBOX

All boards now come with our own Futures Fins compatible fin boxes. Two side set screws and no rear tab allow for a wider tolerance of fin fitting and ensure a perfect and tight fit every time whether you’re using our high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.

 

GRAB RAILS

Grab Rails for easier freestyle tricks, durability and comfortable general riding.

 

STRAPPED OR STRAPLESS

Board is delivered with inserts so straps can be mounted.

CORK SHOCK ABSORBER

Cork offers excellent absorption characteristics and reforms entirely without leaving any visible dents in contrast to PVC. Therefore, it is applied as a damper in the heel area of the surfboards.

CLASSIC CONSTRUCTION

This classic layup is the result of all our years of development to create a durable, all-round strapped / strapless construction that combines the best elements of flex and feel with a durable construction that is proven to be far superior in strength to weight ratio than any other technology available. PLEASE NOTE: Inspired by the Light Team Construction the bottom of the Classic Construction now offers two light weight bamboo strips and an unidirectional glass beam outside the lamination to prevent buckling.

BAMBOO TECH

Bamboo is a sustainable material and comes with amazing technical characteristics. Our bamboo tech surfboards feature a high strength to weight ratio with great resistance to dents and perforations. The resulting boards are very durable and provide high performance riding characteristics.

Learning to kiteboard should be easy and fun, and that is why we created the Gonzales. Thanks to the intelligent design of this board you’ll progress faster than ever.

The soft flex offers an incredibly smooth ride in all conditions while the rounded outline makes those early turns and carves easy. The large fins provide excellent grip to help you fly upwind, and the Mono Concave Bottom Shape encourages early planing and helps to smooth out any mistakes you might make with the kite.

2019 Duotone Gonzales

BOARD FEATURES

MONO CONCAVE BOTTOM

Mono Concave BottomAll of the pure freeride boards are produced with Biax Fibre for the best dampening and comfort. The new, rounder outline makes it fun in chop and the wider tip area helps to get going early. The straight outline is the reason for good pop and sharp edge grip. All of these boards are quite narrow which makes them fast and ensures the best upwind abilities.

 

ABSORPTION FLEX TIPS

Absorption Flex Tips

Based on a unique new construction of the board in the tip area, the scoop rocker line ensures better response to changing situations. In underpowered riding, the board remains flat for fast planing. In overpowered riding, the scoop bends and provides for an increased level of control and stability. The flex tips absorb shocks and enable soft landings.

 

TORSION FLEX

Torsion FlexThe special shape of the 3D cap allows torsion of the long axis of the board. This gives them more grip on the heel-side edge, rich and smooth landings, a direct drive and better upwind performance. Invented by Duotone.

 

 

BIAX FIBRE CONSTRUCTION

Biax Fibre Construction
The Biax Fibre Construction is used for the Duotone boards Gambler, Spike and Gonzales. These boards are produced with Biax Fibre for the best dampening and comfort.

 

 

SOFT FLEX

The 2020 Duotone Pro Wam is a great all-rounder and able to handle all sorts of wave conditions. It is built around a high- performance, yet traditional surf shape that excels in most conditions from small to large waves. Now also for kids!

The Pro Wam has been completely re-designed from the ground up to remain on the cutting edge of high performance surfing.

Slightly shorter and wider than it’s predecessor and with more width and volume under the front foot, the Pro Wam is the embodiment of the high performance squash-tail kite-surfboard.

At home in everything from small onshore waves to pumping down-the-line surf, the WAM is the go-to high performance kite-surfboard for our team riders competing on the GKA world tour.

LIGHT TEAM CONSTRUCTION

We are using a more labor intensive, multi-step vacuum bag process that yields a super strong, lightweight board with a custom, hand sanded finish. The most substantial change to the light team construction, is that we no longer use a full bamboo sandwich. The cork shock absorber, which used to be concealed under the bamboo sandwich, is now clearly visible under the deck skin and allows the deck to flex and absorb shock like a custom PU board with minimal to no heel denting, thanks to the underlying reinforcements and the remarkable memory properties of cork. Pure surf board feel in an ultra light but durable construction!

TECHNORA NET

Technora is a para-aramid fibre with excellent technical properties for high performance kite surfboards. It’s high-tensile strength, good fatigue resistance and long term dimensional stability make it an ideal fibre for use in areas of boards that take repeated impact. We have oriented the Technora fibre in a way that does not affect the overall feel and flex of the board and have slightly altered our overall layup in order to not add any additional weight to the boards while still taking full advantage of the superior strength of Technora to prevent cracking and breakage.

MULTIBOX

2020 Duotone Evo Kite

The Duotone Evo was our most popular kite in 2019 and it’s been improved on once again. Following on from the designs of the Duotone Dice 2020, the Evo now has a completely pulley free bridle for ultimate feedback from the kite and better predictability.

The fixed bridle has led to a more compact leading edge design which allows it to harness more energy for higher jumps but it’s more noticeable during kiteloops as the kite doesn’t deform or twist at all. This really is a complete game changer.

The Ultimate Freeride Kite

We were so pleasantly surprised in testing; the kite climbs out of loops even when underpowered, it’s fast, responsive and drifts well on the waves. There are very few kites than can claim to be at the top of their game across all disciplines, but this is one of them.

Along with the rest of the Duotone 2020 range, the Evo has a re-sculptured the trailing edge and changed the material. The lighter weight material is now not only tighter so it flutters less, but much lighter, so trailing edge has a lot less wear which is usually the most worn part of the kite. We can’t believe it’s taken kite manufacturers almost 20 years to solve this problem, but it looks like they finally have!

The kite has 3 settings on the steering line attachments at the kite to cover all the disciplines and these really are worth playing with as they completely change the way the kite feels and performs.

 

What Duotone have to say…..

The Duotone Evo 2020 is the best allrounder with an incredible wind range, precise power delivery, amazing stability and responsive handling, making it the choice for any type of conditions or riding style. Perfect choice in this kite pacakge for all riders.

For 2020, Duotone have removed the pulleys from the bridle, this has the effect of increasing the responsiveness of the kite while still offering incredible depower.

There is also a new trailing edge design incorporating a wave pattern that drastically reduces flutter and canopy wear in this critical area.

The EVO is a delta-shaped kite designed to offer fantastic upwind performance and huge jumps. It has a dynamic turn that lends itself well to playing in the waves, and the kite is perfect for those riders looking to try their first freestyle moves too. It doesn’t matter what your style is on the water; the EVO is truly capable of handling it all.

The structural stiffness of the smaller sizes has been enhanced, making them rock solid even in gusty and strong winds. Reduced bar pressure makes the kite easy to fly and very forgiving, appealing to a lot of riders across the ability spectrum.

Sheet and go handling further enhances the rider experience, meaning the incredible performance of the EVO is available to everyone. If your riding isn’t confined to a particular discipline and you like to keep your options open for freestyle, big air and waves, then you need the EVOlution!

Evo 4 / 5 Line Control:

The Duotone Evo 2020 can be ridden on 4 or 5 line control bars, uniting new-school and free-ride in one kite. The Evo‘s delta shape offers great sheet and-go riding, excellent wind range and high de-power.

The overall shape helps the Evo turn quickly and predictably while the new bridle geometry stabilizes the arc for a soft, consistent bar feel and extreme back-stall resistance.

The 4-line mode boasts an innovative new safety system and bar-feel prefect for those who prefer soft, easy handling.

In 5-line mode the EVO additionally stabilizes the arc, providing a very direct bar-feel for new-school riding and the ultimate 5th line safety.

Auto re-launch means that you can go for it and never have to worry about re-launchng your kite. Just take your hands off the bar and let the kite do the work for you!

Best Allround of the Duotone Range:
An easy jumper with massive sheet-and-go qualities, offering huge depower, powerful lift and a massive hangtime. It’s the most accessible kite for all type of riders.

Delta Kite:
The most comfortable design with a very smooth kite profile. Upwind ability is unmatched and steering performance is very forgiving.

Easy Water Relaunch:
The relaunch is very fast and easy, thanks to the Delta design the kite doesn’t stick to the water.

Three Strut Design:
A lighter kite boosts agility and increases responsiveness. Turning is fast and the feeling at the bar is very predictable and responsive.

We were so pleasantly surprised in testing; the kite climbs out of loops even when underpowered, it’s fast, responsive and drifts well on the waves. There are very few kites than can claim to be at the top of their game across all disciplines, but this is one of them.

Along with the rest of the Duotone 2020 range, the Evo has a re-sculptured the trailing edge and changed the material. The lighter weight material is now not only tighter so it flutters less, but much lighter, so trailing edge has a lot less wear which is usually the most worn part of the kite. We can’t believe it’s taken kite manufacturers almost 20 years to solve this problem, but it looks like they finally have!

The kite has 3 settings on the steering line attachments at the kite to cover all the disciplines and these really are worth playing with as they completely change the way the kite feels and performs.

 

What Duotone have to say…..

The Duotone Evo 2020 is the best allrounder with an incredible wind range, precise power delivery, amazing stability and responsive handling, making it the choice for any type of conditions or riding style. Perfect choice in this kite pacakge for all riders.

For 2020, Duotone have removed the pulleys from the bridle, this has the effect of increasing the responsiveness of the kite while still offering incredible depower.

There is also a new trailing edge design incorporating a wave pattern that drastically reduces flutter and canopy wear in this critical area.

The EVO is a delta-shaped kite designed to offer fantastic upwind performance and huge jumps. It has a dynamic turn that lends itself well to playing in the waves, and the kite is perfect for those riders looking to try their first freestyle moves too. It doesn’t matter what your style is on the water; the EVO is truly capable of handling it all.

The structural stiffness of the smaller sizes has been enhanced, making them rock solid even in gusty and strong winds. Reduced bar pressure makes the kite easy to fly and very forgiving, appealing to a lot of riders across the ability spectrum.

Sheet and go handling further enhances the rider experience, meaning the incredible performance of the EVO is available to everyone. If your riding isn’t confined to a particular discipline and you like to keep your options open for freestyle, big air and waves, then you need the EVOlution!

Evo 4 / 5 Line Control:

The Duotone Evo 2020 can be ridden on 4 or 5 line control bars, uniting new-school and free-ride in one kite. The Evo‘s delta shape offers great sheet and-go riding, excellent wind range and high de-power.

The overall shape helps the Evo turn quickly and predictably while the new bridle geometry stabilizes the arc for a soft, consistent bar feel and extreme back-stall resistance.

The 4-line mode boasts an innovative new safety system and bar-feel prefect for those who prefer soft, easy handling.

In 5-line mode the EVO additionally stabilizes the arc, providing a very direct bar-feel for new-school riding and the ultimate 5th line safety.

Auto re-launch means that you can go for it and never have to worry about re-launchng your kite. Just take your hands off the bar and let the kite do the work for you!

Characteristics

Board Features

PREMIUM CONSTRUCTION

The Premium Construction boards Jaime, Select and Soleil feature Carbon Beams, where parts of the glass fibre are being replaced by unidirectional carbon beams to noticeably improve the boards’ performance. This results in a faster and even more progressive flex for better pop and reduced weight.


SOFT FLEX

Soft Flex boards are the most friendly and “easy to use” boards in our range. The Soft Flex option is forgiving and simply fun to ride, even if you are an unexperienced rider. However, the Soft Flex option is also suitable for more lightweight riders.

TORSION FLEX

The special shape of the 3D cap allows torsion of the long axis of the board. This gives them more grip on the heel-side edge, rich and smooth landings, a direct drive and better upwind performance. Invented by Duotone.

GRAB RAILS

Grab Rails for easier board off manoeuvres and comfortable general riding.

STEP MONO CONCAVE

The Step Mono Concave is the fastest and easiest to ride bottom concepts. It can be carved easily through turns and always delivers the right grip. It planes early, allows smaller fins and helps to go upwind with ease.

SPACE FLEX TECHNOLOGY

Space Flex adapts to the waters surface and enhances all turning characteristics.

Stiff outside frame coupled with the soft tips creates smooth water release and early planing.

Reduction in swing weight facilitates easier tricks and faster rotations.
