FREERIDE


Freeride boards are fine all-rounders . They usually have a soft flex and a slight rocker. As the name suggests, these boards are so  good for free-riding. This means that, if you like cruising back and forth and making a simple jumps, then these boards are perfect for you.

FREESTYLE


Freestyle boards have better jumping abilities and are ideal for more advanced  riders. They deliver better pop during a jump. Landings are softer and edging is better than freeride boards

LOW WIND


Light Wind boards have been developed  for little wind and area bit  larger than others . Sometimes people call them   "the doors",  they have a flat rocker, so starts faster and needs less wind to provide proper glide.

Just take a short look at our diagram, We are sure that it clears your mind :)





WHAT FLEX IS GOOD FOR ME?


SOFT FLEX


These boards flex  easily, is very pleasant to ride since they attenuate the impact of choppy water.

MEDIUM FLEX


Those boards  are good all-rounders, with a good pop for jumps, and enjoyable ride.

HARD FLEX


Boards with a hard flex have the maximum possible pop and are mainly used by professionals and advanced riders. They offer less riding comfort than  other boards (soft or medium flex).

BOOTS OR STRAPS?


We highly recommend using straps since the risk of injury is lower . Boots allow you transfer more force to the board, enabling you to set up tricks more effectively. However the landings and falls are much harder, since the force is transferred to the knee and you can't get out of the board.

Generally speaking,


  • if you mainly perform hooked tricks,or just enjoying  free ride  use straps.
  • if you mainly perform unhooked tricks, use boots.


REMEMBER THAT BOARD MUST BE REINFORCED FOR BOOTS, OTHERWISE INSERTS CAN BE DAMAGED.

  • THE STANCE - WHICH POSITION SHOULD I FIT MY BOOTS OR STRAPS IN?

 



STANCE WIDTH


WIDE STANCE

+ more stable during landings
+ can hold more power
- increased risk of knee injury


NARROW STANCE

+ great maneuverability

+ less resistance in rotations


TALLER PEOPLE NEED A WIDER STANCE THAN SHORTER PEOPLE. TO FIND YOUR STANCE WIDTH, JUMP FORWARD AND LAND IN A COMFORTABLE SQUAD POSITION.


PAD POSITION


CENTRED PADS

+ more stability
- harder to edge, especially people with small feet


CLOSER TO HEELSIDE

+ easier too edge, pop and jump.

- less stability, especially during landings

- harder to ride toeside


IF YOU SUFFER PAIN IN SHINS; MOVE POSITION TOWARDS HEELS FOR EASIER EDGING.


FOOT ANGLE


DUCK FOOTED (WIDE ANGLE)

+ more maneuverability
- increased risk of knee injury 


PARALLEL STANCE

+ better stability , especially in landings

+ less resistance in rotations


IF SUFFERING PAIN AT THE INSIDE OF KNEE; MOVE ANGLE CLOSER TO PARALLEL. LOOK FOR YOUR NATURAL FOOT ANGLE WHEN YOU SQUAT.
