WHERE IT THRIVES

In the park and on the flats

WHAT RIDERS SAY

"Make every press look easy." - Jesse Richman

Rock solid grind base

Transition between Kite and Park with style. The Flare is designed for advanced kiteboarding Wakestyle and Park riders, using bulletproof P-Tex grind base material to be the most durable board in the park. Tom Bridge’s freestyle stick of choice.

High wakestyle rocker

Forget whiplash and faceplants - the high rocker line allows you to land gently without catching a rail. The rounded surface breaks the surface tension of the water, softening impact on hard and flat landings.

PressFlex tip control

Controlled tip flex for smooth presses and softer landings.

Lock in your Wakestyle Fix

Our featherlite Fix Freestyle / Wakestyle boots
combine with the Flare for the ultimate freedom.

DETAILS

LOW-FRICTION P-TEX GRIND BASE

With durable ABS rails for long-lasting performance. The P-tex base is low friction for perfect transitions. Rotate, slide and spin with ease, knowing your board won't stick when you hit that kicker, jump or obstacle.

HIGH WAKESTYLE ROCKER

Forget whiplash and faceplants - the high rocker line allows you to land gently without catching a rail. The rounded surface breaks the surface tension of the water, softening impact on hard and flat landings.

PRESSFLEX TIP CONTROL

Controlled tip flex for smooth presses and softer landings.

QUAD CONCAVE CENTRE TO DEEP QUAD CHANNEL TIPS

Extreme quad channels improve tracking and upwind while riding finless.

MEDIUM OUTLINE CURVE

Rounder outline for carving up the cablepark and performance on the flats. The wider middle and forgiving rocker also help with overpowered riding in choppy conditions.

WIDE SQUARE TAIL

Generates maximum pop for low-level technical freestyle/wakestyle tricks.

COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY

The combination of the Paulownia wood core with engineered E-glass laminate layups on the top and bottom drives riding performance.

DYNAMIC FLEX

The flex characteristic of every TwinTip Board is determined by multiple features built into each specific design. Core thickness variations and taper, as well as detailing, longitudinally and laterally, play the most significant role in controlling the overall flex and feel. Board specific laminate layups then allow us to further fine tune the flex and board characteristics. We adjust the stiffness lengthwise and torsionally in conjunction with the rocker line, plan shape view and profile of the board, to give each board its specific performance characteristics.

LIGHTWEIGHT, IMPACT RESISTANT ECO CORE

Paulownia is a highly renewable hardwood species, with one of the highest strength to weight ratios. Ultra-lightweight, with a high shear force and high impact resistance, Paulownia wood forms a non-toxic core which significantly displaces the amount of foam or resin used in manufacturing, thereby reducing carbon emissions. Each board has a customised core thickness individually fine-tuned to ensure its characteristics are consistent throughout the range, no matter your size or weight.

STAINLESS M6 STANDARDISED HARDWARE

Standardised SS316 M6x16mm hardware across all twin tip boards and accessories enables the use of the same PH3 screwdriver for assembly and makes replacement of parts super easy.

INTEGRATED GRAB RAIL

Integrated into deck shape to provide easy grip for board-offs.

20MM FINS INCLUDED

Strong, abrasion resistant composite fins with dogbone washers and M6 screws.

HIGH WAKESTYLE ROCKER

Forget whiplash and faceplants - the high rocker line allows you to land gently without catching a rail. The rounded surface breaks the surface tension of the water, softening impact on hard and flat landings.
