The Cyclone Destroyer has been designed by ex-ASP surfer, wave legend and kiteboarder, Gavin Spowart. It was inspired by Peter Petersen who wanted a directional waveboard with the virtues of a surfboard, which could still be ridden in Cape Town's notorious 30+ knot winds. The result is the 5ft Destroyer 2, a fully committed waveboard designed exclusively for down-the-line waveriding. The unique channel / step bottom deck allows the rider to fully depower their kite and keep the board speed constant, avoiding the bogging effect. The water pushes through the concave into the channels and over the step, maintaining speed through the top turn, allowing the rider to park the kite and use the board speed to ride the wave. Epoxy vacuumed, super light and strong, these boards are specifically designed for riding waves with a kite. Take out your smallest kite in light winds, unhook and ride waves like never before. It's the ultimate wave Destroyer! Sizes: 5', 5'2”, 5' 5” and 6'.
