The Bucca is designed for raw wake style. The board’s excellent shock absorption guarantees smooth landings, off obstacles and radical unhooked manoeuvres. The design of the board’s rocker, in combination with the 6 channels at the tips, offer great control, even without fins. The aggressive tip shape allows for superior control and maintaining the edge in overpowered conditions. The solid wood core and the unique glass and carbon layup allows this board to have great tip-to-tip and cross-torsion flex. The unique carbon lay-up has been designed to offer more stiffness on the heel-side while maintaining a lot of flex on the toe-side for blind tricks. The 3D bottom shape provides stability and enables the rider to go big with comfortable and forgiving landings. The combination of performance characteristics, which include superb upwind performance, massive pop, insane turns and stability make the Bucca – the perfect board for Freestyle and Wakestyle tricks. The Bucca releases an aggressive pop, is smooth and holds the edge through choppy conditions. The Bucca has moderate stiffness, which is a good combination of aggressive pop with forgiveness for landings and choppy water conditions.
MANAKEL CROSS OVER
The Manakel has become a favorite amongst our global team and riders. With this in mind, we redesigned the layup of the glass and carbon combinations of the board, which resulted in the new generation Manakel. The Manakel is designed for high-performance and comfort. This is one board you will never outgrow, the construction provides loads of pop while the shape, step down rail and shallow single concave gives the board a smooth feel. The Manakel delivers aggressive pop and outstanding flex properties, due to the premium quality Paulownia Wood Core. Flex Tips provides a snappy feel, superior control during tricks and great upwind performance. The board carves through from choppy conditions to butter smooth flat sections, the carbon inlays in the standing area help maintain the edge and accelerate the pop. The Manakel is alive under your feet, with direct feedback to the rider.
The Orca directional kiteboard is designed to offer the feel of a “real” surfboard. From high-flying aerialists to modern-day soul surfers, intermediate and expert riders, everyone will enjoy a ride on the Orca. It is a reliable board, with excellent control in all conditions. The wider outline helps the board to plane easily and maintains speed through the flatter sections of a wave. The squash tail allows more drive and stability on the turns, making it effortless to maneuver, while the quad fin set-up delivers a smooth glide, keeping the board steady in the waves. Using the highest quality materials available, our own specially formulated kiteboard foam core and with our precise measuring system, we are able to produce a world-class board with an unparalleled balance of performance, optimal flex, strength and durability. New to the Orca is the introduction of Aramid fibers in the construction. We found carbon too stiff, that’s where our new Aramid fibers Technologies improved the performance of our directional kiteboards. The diagonally crossed Aramid fibers allow for flex to occur in the tail, rail, and any other part of the board. It doesn’t provide as much impact resistance as Vector carbon but it does allow for a more natural flex pattern. Aramid fibers have high-performance properties, are more flexible than carbon and improves flex memory, improve point-load on impacts and reduce core-crush. We do not claim that our directionals are indestructible, they are alive under your feet!!!
The Vortex is the ultimate weapon to charge big waves. Fast and powerful! The Vortex Directional kiteboard is a fast, accurate and powerful board – recommended for intermediate to advanced riders. Developed for the most demanding wave riding conditions, with unmatched control and manoeuvrability. The board comes with a thruster fin set up to improve grip at high speeds and in tight bottom turns. It is suitable for both strapped and strapless riding. Optimal flex and performance are achieved by pulling the fibreglass cloth tight (tension) from nose to tail and from rail to rail, as only a hand layup can do, which gives the board a lively feel and “pop”. New to the Vortex is the introduction of Aramid fibers in the construction. We found carbon too stiff, that’s where our new Aramid fibers Technologies improved the performance of our directional kiteboards.

It doesn’t provide as much impact resistance as Vector carbon but it does allow for a more natural flex pattern. We do not claim the boards are “indestructible”. It is currently impossible to make a 6ft, flexible, high-performance board that only weighs in the neighbourhood of 5 lbs unbreakable, although treated well a Vanhunks will last you a lot longer than any mass production board.

We found carbon too stiff, that’s where our new Aramid fiber Technology improved the performance of our directional kiteboards. The diagonally crossed Aramid fibers allow for flex to occur in the tail, rail, and any other part of the board. We left the best for last, the White Diamond has an aggressive Fish Tail, which allows serious bite and grip for manoeuvring on the wave.
