RRD C.O.T.A.N V2
The RRD COTAN V2 (cut off tail and nose) is described as a high performance board that carries less length and momentum in comparison with a traditional board shape. This shape allows you to feel exceptionally free and fast in everything you do. The reason this shape is magic is simple, it rips! It’s the next step for kite-surfing.
AVAILABLE IN 5 different sizes – all equipped with 5 fin boxes.
When deciding what size RRD C.O.T.A.N V2 to choose, we recommend going 5 or 6 inches shorter than what you normally ride on a classic surfboard shape. The Cotan is equipped with the very best accessories available on the market. It includes our exclusive “1000 stripes” diamond groove 4 mms surf EVA pads with tail kick. You may ride with only the rear pad and wax the deck for the pure strapless feel or with the tail pad, deck pad and extra hexagonal pads the choice is yours.
- Rounded squash tail to allow a precise control of the direction with your foot placed all the way back
- Deep concave throughout the whole board with a flat tail released by a progressive rocker with tail kick
- Tail base channels
- Thin rails from nose to tail, super thin profile throughout
- Five fin boxes, so you can choose between thruster or quad

The RRD COTAN V2 Wood construction is a totally new technology used to create our kite surfboards. It is a very special process created with HDT (High Definition Technology). The boards are moulded in one shot. This means that all of the fibers and lay ups are in the mold at the same time. The boards are then laminated with an infusion process. Infusion brings the resin into the mould from the nose and is pulled through the mould towards the tail. By building the board this way, it is possible to use the minimum amount of resin. Less resin makes the board lighter.
Because this construction is less labor intensive, it is possible to get a quality board at a fair price. The Wood construction offers full wood on both the bottom and the top of the board(deck). The deck of the board has 90 degrees alignment of the fibers allowing for more flex compared to the bottom, therefore our Wood surfboards have a softer flex than most boards on the market that have bamboo. The wood construction is recommended to riders who want the maximum impact resistance from the boards.
Ltd Carbon construction
Built with a lightweight technology that allows flex, control, and scoop-rocker line accuracy. The board is built with a CNC EPS core of 20 kgs/m3 density, then laminated with 200 grms biaxial glass fibers and finished with a 55 grams carbon net over a bamboo stepping deck vacuum glued onto the board at 90 compared to the stringer length so as to avoid excessive stiffness onto the board flex.
So this construction is slightly lighter than the Classic PU, for about 300-400 grams, but the difference is not as much the weight, but it is stronger and has the EPS foam core. The EPS core makes the board more buoyant because the foam retains more air. The boards in the LTD construction feel alive! Not only because of their light weight, but mainly due to the added floatation. These boards were created specifically to ride strapless and are ideal for strapless freestyle. They are meant for riders that want a lightweight board that can also be controlled at high speeds.
