Where is the story? Your link simply goes to the Speene website where it says you can order a board. What am I missing?

As far as I know it was not caused by world wide recision but by bad character of its owner.
It is rumored that the owner of the brand annoyed a lot of people and finally pissed off with round about half million Euros debt, not willing to pay back any buck, but wiling to continue producing kites and boards with another idiot's money. Bad story.

As the USA Importer for Spleene Kiteboarding, I have not heard this! I have been talking to Rainer the owner on a regular basis..
There was a break down with the owner and his partner company.. This partner company did many bad things to the spleene importers around the world. And Rainer was forced to find a new partner that would help his company not hurt it!!
But I have been testing new proto types and I understand that spleene will be back full force with a new partner and a complete line of new products and I am told that spleene will be stronger then ever before... We should see new boards before the new year!!! I have been testing the new SPX2 and it is a Great kite.. so much fun to ride!!!!


If anything I would say these rumors have come from this partner company , to try to hurt spleene kiteboarding further..

Spleene make nice boards... I still ride a 2007 154cm Door on lighter days. I learned on the board...and I teach on it now. It has the usual dings that you'd expect but is still serviceable. I've tried some of the newer ones in recent years...and they're better. I always recommend them as a brand to try when someone is looking for a new board. So...I hope they keep it al together and stay in business. We need lots of good builders / designers to keep the sport progressing.

Hi yesindeed,

I have checked your profile and it seems that you have signed in at kiteforum.com only for one single reason: You want to hurt Spleene and my person.

Be sure that we will not accept this and our lawyers will get in touch with you, because we are pretty sure who you are. PMU was funny in some ways and in the end he made a perfect advertising for Flysurfer without charging, but your postings are a completely different category.

Ciao

Rainer Kauper
