The 2009 Custom is our premier Wakestyle twintip board. For the 2009 Custom, we’ve expanded on the 3D bottom concept we started one year ago. The quad concave channels have been increased in definition throughout the tips for a more aggressive bite. The increase in channel depth allows the board to be ridden finless when needed. This is perfect for hitting sliders or performing wakestyle tricks between hits on the obstacles.
Adding to the improved bottom shape is the reduction of the concaves through the center of the board. This is especially helpful when landing big tricks slightly off axis. The forgiving center section gives the rider a stable, less catchy landing platform while the concave tips provide all of the bite needed. We have moved to a wood core on the Custom for added durability and a smoother ride.
The Custom comes standard with the new Sync Backless Binding.

Sync - Backless Binding
The Sync Backless Binding is an entirely new approach to creating a positive connection between rider and board. The Sync connection is so advanced that it transcends the traditional footstrap category and enters the binding realm. Stopping short of a full binding, the Sync delivers the type of support you’d expect from a binding with the ease of use of a footstrap.
The Sync is a fully integrated, featherweight binding and footpad. The Sync binding delivers support over a greater part of the top and sides of your foot than a traditional footstrap. This creates the most comfortable and positive kiteboarding connection available today. The wide Dynema laces not only adjust the size of the binding, they conform the binding to the shape of your foot.
Each subtle shift of your weight directly transfers the energy into the board for immediate response and control. The newly formed footpad conforms to the shape of your sole to cradle your foot. The multi derometer EVA provides a cush but supportive platform to protect from those hard, flat landings.
The Sync Backless Binding attaches to your board in seconds. The adjustable footplate even allows you to choose your stance angle between +/- 12 degrees.The easy entry of the Sync opens the door for a quick entry and exit at any kitesurfing location. The lightweight, backless binding delivers the type of control and comfort needed for hitting sliders or throwing down freestyle tricks for hours on end.
