Package Includes:

Impact XR V1 board, FCSII Reactor Tri-Fin set up


Our new Impact kite surfboard is a full-power, pedal-to-the-metal board, built to shred a clean wall of swell to pieces. Thanks to its narrower pulled-in outline and knife squash tail, the Impact is right at home when the waves get big and powerful. Thanks to the Impact's fast planing hull the board rockets upwind on rail getting you back to the top of the peak faster. Then take one step back with your back foot and the board is ready to dissect. The Impact has tons of hold and drive off the bottom, which helps set up and allows for radical hard craving turns off the top. If you're looking for a high-confidence board for charging when the waves get juicy, look no further than the Impact!
Original designs of the 2023 surfboard line were created by Al Emery in close collaboration with World-renowned wave rider, Ben Wilson. Al Emery's passion for surfboard design and shaping evolved from a childhood filled with surfing the surrounding breaks in his backyard of Northern NSW, Australia. Emery Surfboards has now become a global Surfboard brand with boards being ridden all over the globe by world-class surfers, everyday surfers, and all-around rad humans just wanting to have fun.
