Kiteboarding is a relatively new type of sport and leisure around the globe. There are several opinions about its birth date – one of them being year 1996 when the first pictures of kiteboarders in action where videotaped. One year latter – in 1997 - the first kiteboarding company was established and kiteboarding R&D center developed in the southern France.
ABoards has been established only couple of years latter – in 1999. From the beginning ABoards started building boards using snow-board technology. R&D work was initiated to perfect the board’s geometry by combing tunnel concave with flat rocker in the central part of the board. On-going experiments were and still are carried out by combining different composite materials and 3D surface profiling technologies to give necessary flex not loosing the strength and durability of the boards.
In ABoards team we do our best so that every single rider who goes into the water with our board would enjoy the ride. One can say that “enjoying the ride” is something that AB team believes in.
