FLIP - the youngest brother in the ABoards 2008 board hierarchy - is an excellent choice for beginners as a first board in their journey of kiteboarding. The board is of slightly wider shape and increased length, which in combination with tunnel concave bottom deck will ensure perfect edging and upwind ability.
Thanks to very strong 100% wood core and great durability, the board is right choice for kite schools. Even after lengthy use the board will be in great condition.
Altogether FLIP is good value for money purchase.
If you are a beginner and don’t want to spend money for large “beginner’s” board that has to be changed after first steps are accomplished, you should chose FLIP. It will fit you also to start first jumps, rolls and even the unhook moves. Thanks to the board’s geometry that gives perfect upwind, FLIP will be great for light wind as well.
Board comes with Solid Foot Lock System (SFLS). Asymmetric adjustable footstrap of soft material is designed with special feet side protection to keep the skin of feet unhurt even after excessive kiting.
