COMPACT PRO KITE SURFBOARD
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 mm 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 LTD construction was introduced last year. These unique boards are built with a lightweight technology that allows flex, control and scoop rocker line accuracy. The board is constructed with a CNC EPS core of 20 kgs/m3 density, then laminated with 200 grams biaxial glass fibers and finished with a 55 grams carbon net over a bamboo stepping deck vacuum. This is glued onto the board at a 90° angle compared to the stringer length to avoid excessive stiffness.
This construction is slightly lighter than the Classic, about 300-400 grams, but the difference is not as much in the weight of the board, but that it's stronger and has an EPS foam core. The EPS core makes the board more buoyant because the foam holds more air.
The boards in the LTD construction feel alive, not only because of their light weight, but mainly due to the added floatation. Because of this it is possible to ride a thinner board. All of our LTD’s are thinner and tuned down from the Classic and Wood technologies.
These boards were created specifically to ride strapless and are ideal for jumping. They are meant for riders who abuse the board during the landings, but want a lightweight board at the same time that can be controlled at high speeds.
