RRD COTAN Wood V2 Kitesurf Board, 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 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 Wood construction is a totally new technology used to create our boards. It is a very special process created with HDT (High Definition Technology). The boards are moulded in one shot. This means that all of the fibers and lay ups are in the mould at the same time.
The boards are then laminated with an infusion process. Infusion brings the resin into the mould from the nose and is pulled through the mould towards the tail. By building the board this way, it is possible to use the minimum amount of resin. Less resin makes the board lighter. Because this construction is less labour intensive, it is possible to get a quality board at a fair price.
The Wood construction offers full wood on both the bottom and the top of the board(deck). The deck of the board has 90 degrees alignment of the fibers allowing for more flex compared to the bottom. Therefore, our Wood surfboards have a softer flex than most boards on the market that have bamboo.
