This board is known for being fast, grippy & explosive!
The Pop was Tona’s debut kiteboard which we developed with our fellow riders in mind, and is Jake Kelsick’s favorite from our twin tip lineup.
At the time of its conception there was a big demand for something that had great pop off the water, went upwind well and also had good traction when riding finless. After several rounds of testing prototypes with different channel designs we came up with something that was very unique and innovative, and people have been stoked with it ever since. True to the original design, the POP 2.0 has the same great shape and tough construction but we tweaked the glass lay up to improve the flex pattern and added a new graphic. It’s the same great ride but with a fresh look!
This board is Smooth, a joy to carve and soft on the landings.
When Andre got together with Dereck to develop his signature board he wanted something that not only met his demands of throwing aerial tricks, but also reflected his style and love of surfing. This meant coming up with something that gives a lot of pop but also allows for smooth rail-to-rail transitions and carving ability. Together they developed the bottom shape they dubbed the “hourglass concave”.
A unique design that when combined with Dre’s preferred rocker line, created something that has great pop and superb turning ability while also offering soft landings and a smooth ride in choppy conditions. True to the original design, the FLOW 2.0 produces the same predictable ride but we fine tuned the glass layup to improve the flex.
