Litewave - 2008 Boards

Litewave BoardsLitewave claim to have pioneered snowboard construction techniques in kiteboards back in 1999 and have been charging the way since. Using high-pressure compression moulding with a lightweight but super-strong PVC core, epoxy and strategically placed composite materials to deliver minimum weight with maximum strength and pop and just the right amount of flex. They offer three lines of boards to handle any conditions, from light wind to pro-level freestyle, to monster surf. The Rasta Pro LE features slightly pulled-in tips for unmatched carving and slashing as well as straight sections in the centre for rocketing upwind performance. The evolved 'hooked-up' concave is actually made up of three radii for more grip where you need it and a flatter section in the centre for massive pop and release in powered wake-style moves. As well as performing at the highest level, the Rasta Pro also excels where it counts for everyone, in high speed riding and chop.

The Mack Daddy foot system is new for 2008 and is completely removable. Dual density pads and straps cradle your foot while an ABS plate underneath actually disperses impact on those hard landings.

A pulled-in bat-tail outline on the Surfshape 5'8 and a faster-gun style rocker allows this board to really drive through and keep speed in the bottom turns, while the quad-fin configuration gives incredible grip for snappy off-the-lips. The quad fin also makes for a wave board with limitless top end speed yet a very snappy and responsive feel unlike other thruster configurations, which are slower. Constructed to really withstand the abuse that a kite rider will give it, the 5'8 has a machined EPS core and is wrapped with wood-veneer/glass/epoxy composite laminate to provide impact resistance and the optimum strength-to-weight ratio.
