After a year’s development and testing in the Tubingen laboratory in Germany and on the South African coast, AP Kiteboarding will put two new boards on the market in spring 2004. The boards are vacuum-laminated for a homogenous and robust adhesion. So what do you get from this Euro-Afro combo? A progressive concave in the bottom between the foot straps for excellent grip for takeoff, rapid acceleration and good upwind edging, they say. Beyond the foot straps the tips go into straight lines, so most of the flex is in the tips and makes the boards fast and controlled. AP reckon their boards are for everyone who want to do wave-riding, tricks, transitions or simply safe and fast riding. The 125 and 138 come with six different design choices, as well as four G10 fins, B3 adjustable footstraps, deluxe footpads and handle.
