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.
The Pop was Tona’s debut board which we developed with our fellow riders in mind, and is Jake’s favorite from our 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 new Pop from our Revival Series has the same great shape and tough construction, with some rad new skins to catch eyes on the water. A proven design that will take you to the next level.

In the Caribbean it is common, and even encouraged, to leave your house and go wandering for no reason other than to get outside, interact with people and enjoy nature. To go for a “joy ride” is typical of a weekend activity, where you drive around until you find a beach or favorable place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, or make an impromptu visit to a friend’s home.
We kept this in mind when designing the Joy Ride. A board for everyone, its easy to ride and fun for cruising around, exploring or just enjoying being out on the water. There’s nothing better for the soul.
The Joy Ride comes complete with our comfy foot strap bindings, the Slippas, fiberglass fins and a grab handle.
Inspired by his love of surfing, Dre wanted something thats really fluid in turns, while still maintaining the pop and edge control you need for performing powerful maneuvers. The subtle concave design allows for smooth rail to rail transitions while maintaining lots of grip while edging on the rail. This unique design also allows for a very smoothe ride in choppy conditions and super soft landings from big jumps.
The Pop is our debut kiteboard. We put this baby through some rigorous testing and after a full year + of R&D we came up with something special. A board that explodes off the water whether it’s on natural kickers or flat water, without sacrificing any upwind ability. The Pop is stiffer than the average kiteboard, this helps hold its static rocker line while riding and also helps generate the maximum amount of energy when loading up to pop off the water. The double concave in the center and deep channels along the rails give it lots of stability while riding finless.
