STRAP IN AND HOLD ON!
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 Y27 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!
Available in two constructions PRO and LTE.
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.

TRUST, COMFORT and PREDICTABILITY, 3 words to give you best feeling while riding.
Boards that may appear simple but which contain super technological secrets. High-tech products to ensure maximum durability, lightness and perfect flex for all types of conditions and rider. We completely revised the surfboard construction process, 27 years of know-how, after hundreds of boards produced and tested around the world.
RRD is today the ONLY brand in the market to use hi density Moulded EPS cores on kitesurfboards.
The new PRO line comes straight from the ultimate moulded surfboards technology which consists of a high definition EPS core, made with a high definition “Super EPS“ mould, which is then injected with 36 Kgs/m3 density EPS beads. Using the EPS injection, through the use of steam with the right temperature and pressure to blow the polystyrene into the mold, the result is a perfect mono-block core 40% more resistant, compact and with perfect surface definition (no open cutout bits are showing on the outside) compared to a classic CNC shaped surf board core. The parabolic carbon rails create a board that has a progressive smooth flex and a strong shape memory. All this not only create an unbeatable technology mix abut also a very stylish, classy and slick look.
LIGHT, STRONG and DURABLE
The new LTE technology looks like simple but is one of the most sophisticated and innovative method of construction, it comes straight from the ultimate molded surfboards technology like the PRO technology. Consisting of a high definition EPS core, made with a EPS injection on a pre shaped mold, which is then injected with 36 Kgs/m3 density beads. This phenomenal core is so strong that you could ride it on the water without any lamination on it! The Full Glass and wood layup makes the board super flexible to ride and really strong to impacts.
The painted matt finish provide resistance to ultraviolet degradation and an easy to repair surface.
