DESCRIPTION

Designed, tested, and developed by Ralf Bachschuster, one of the most influential and radical kiteboarders in the South African kite scene, these phenomenal sticks are very fast, securely grip the water, and deliver an abundance of hold in the most extreme conditions. The Y26 version of this power house it’s a well rounded ”does it all” high-end performance board. Easy to ride and comfortable both in light or strong winds. Developed in Cape Town, the Barracudas are not only fast boards that were born to handle full power but can now be revered as the one and only board you need in your quiver!

FEATURES

  • Slightly wider outline towards the nose with a pintail winger tail to increase control and comfort while allowing great turning potential with plenty grip.
  • Full mono-concave hull with heaps of rocker on the tail. Planing fast and holding control on choppy waters.
  • Thicker volume mid section in between your feet to allow floatation and keeping momentum at lower speed.
  • Thin rail profile on nose and tail to allow the best grip at high speed and lower the volume to keep the weight down.

SWALLOW WINGER TAIL

If you’re looking for the best possible traction and control when surfing, your choice will be a pin tail. This type of tail has the narrowest width of all your basic surfboard tail shapes. Because the tail’s surface area is small, this allows the tail of the board to grab hold of the water, and maintain direction by tracking.
The pin tail shape is like an arrowhead, with two curved lines coming to a point. This design will give you good water flow over the tail of the board, allowing the tail to hold better, and avoiding any abrupt release that could knock you off your board.

BOARD TECHNOLOGIES

The Classic PU construction has been developed to create pure surfboards and to allow control over choppy waters. We have improved the weight and strength of the boards this year. We are now using a hi-volume lightweight pigment in the resin. This type of resin fills up the holes in the foam and reduces the amount of resin content in the glass fibers, making the boards lighter. The Classic boards have low fiber memory and low foam memory at the same time. This low memory gives the boards the right flex e feel. We recommend the Classic PU technology to the riders who love a comfortable pure surfing feel under their feet.

The new LTE technology comes straight from the ultimate molded surfboards technology which consists of a high definition EPS core, made with a high definition “Super EPS“ mold, which is then injected with 36 Kgs/m3 density bit’s. This phenomenal core is so strong that you could ride it on the water without any lamination on it! The Full Glass layup makes the board super flexible to ride and really strong to impact resistance, creating unmatched durability.
