RRD COTAN V2, 2018


The C.O.T.A.N. (cut off tail and nose) is described as a high performance board that carries less length and momentum in comparison with a traditional board shape. This shape allows you to feel exceptionally free and fast in everything you do. The reason this shape is magic is simple, it rips! It’s the next step for kite-surfing.
AVAILABLE IN 5 different sizes – all equipped with 5 fin boxes.
When deciding what size Cotan to choose, we recommend going 5 or 6 inches shorter than what you normally ride on a classic surfboard shape. The Cotan is equipped with the very best accessories available on the market. It includes our exclusive “1000 stripes” diamond groove 4 mms surf EVA pads with tail kick. You may ride with only the rear pad and wax the deck for the pure strapless feel or with both the tail pad and the deck pad, the choice is yours. In fact, you can glue the front pad yourself because the inserts are embedded in the pads.

  • Rounded squash tail to allow a precise control of the direction with your foot placed all the way back
  • Deep concave throughout the whole board with a flat tail released by a progressive rocker with tail kick
  • Thin rails from nose to tail, super thin profile throughout
  • Five fin boxes, so you can choose between thruster or quad
The Classic PU construction was developed to create pure surfboards for pure wave riding and to allow control over choppy waters. We have improved the weight and strength of the boards this year. We are now using a pigmented resin. This type of resin fills up the holes in the foam and impregnates the glass fibers less which makes the boards lighter.
In addition to the new resin, we have increased the bamboo deck reinforcement area and extended it all the way to 2,5cm from the rail, further back towards the tail, and 9cms towards the nose. The feeling of the classic board is wonderful.
The Classic boards have poor fiber memory and poor foam memory at the same time. This poor memory gives our boards a proper surfboard feel. We recommend the Classic technology to the strapless riders because of the forgiving ride this construction provides through its flexibility.
