You could always go for one of these Mutare boards. Carbon split board, double concave, been around since 2009.

I've had one for a few years and have had to patch up the carbon with some epoxy where I managed to grind through it, but it's stood up to a fair amount of abuse (including airline travel).

Got to ride the Flysurfer split board last weekend. Very smooth ride in choppy conditions. Was a bit underpowered, so can't offer a full review yet. But, there is no way i could tell that it's a split board just by riding - felt like a normal freeride board. Super easy to put together and take apart. Pins were a bit hard to insert at first, but after putting a drop of silicone lube in the holes, it because very simple.
Tried it with the Naish Trip (strut-less kite) - works well together and you can fit both in a carry-on when you travel .
A customer demoed this board a few days later and wrote a review on this page:

Will also be getting the Nobile Splits soon and will report back on these.

I hope this compact kite and board stuff gets to the stage where it is as good as non compact - sounding good so far. as the years go by seem to be travelling with more and more s5it!

for majority of kiteboarders, who just want to cruse around with an occasional jump and a back roll, this gear is already as good..
