No question, this is the best performance per dollar in the kiteboarding industry. This is the actual board model and size we have been using in our kiteboarding school the past three years.
If you are getting into kiteboarding, or are looking for a board to get you out into lighter winds, and you don't want to pay tons of money, this is the board you need. This board is designed to be very easy to ride, and to get you going with comfort as a priority. The moderate rocker, and smooth outline reduce the chances that you'll catch an edge, while cutting through chop and swell easily. Having a larger surface area and volume will allow you to get away with using a smaller more responsive kite, and the volume will give you more time to think about what you are doing with your kite.
This should be your primary board until you are riding, and staying upwind, and working on small jumps and spins. Pair this with one of the smaller boards we have, and then use this as your light wind board. Take both boards to the beach, and rig one kite. Change the boards, not the kite when the wind conditions change. This will save you lots of time, and get you more riding time on the water. Shop around on our site, and you'll see you can get THIS board, and ANOTHER smaller board, for under $500. That is a 2 board solution for less than the cost of most other boards, and you are not giving up on performance or quality. A two board quiver will give you more range and flexibility than any other single board out there.
Don't forget to pair this with our amazing deal on Liquid Force Straps and Pads. Complete the board with genuine Luxury Pads and Straps and you'll be hitting the water in style for under $200. (Note, only the Kits come with heelstraps and board handle in addition to the straps and pads.)
The classic bottom shape of the Liquid Force Proof is a throwback to LF's longest running and best selling board, the Drop. The single concave of the Liquid Force Proof is simple and effective allowing for a solid and effortless ride for beginners and advanced riders alike.
The rounded rails of the 2010 Liquid Force Proof allow for effortless water flow off the edge of the board and is ubber smooth through chop.
Rounded Squash Tip/Tail
This simple tip/tail design has existed for years. The rounded corners work well together with the round rails and single concave to give the beginner rider a worry free experience or the more advanced rider effortless control.
The classic clamshell construction is a production technology that has been in place at Liquid Force since the beginning. This durable construction is rider proven and allows for the soft, forgiving rails and ride of the Proof.
Integrated “Thumb Rail” Deck Contours
The 2010 Liquid Force Proof “thumb rail” deck contours provide more than just a convenient way to carry your board! The “thumb rails” add increased strength and durability between the feet, allowing the core to be as thin as possible without sacrificing strength.http://www.kitepaddlesurf.com/Liquid-Force-Proof-161-Beginner-Lightwind-Kiteboard-LF-Proof-161.htm?categoryId=-1
