High Performance Kitesurf Shortboard Thruster for the Surf
This is the high performance thruster in the line up. Aggressively shaped for shredding waves all day long. The maquina provides tight bottom turns and explodes off the lip. If you see a wave section that you want to reach the Maquina will easily get you there. This board is designed for riders looking to take their riding in the surf to the next level.
Available as classic surfoard PU construction or the premium strength and lightweight LTD construction.
The Maquina is a classic thruster, the one you want to be riding when you want to have a totally reliable shape that will never let you down. This board becomes an extension of your mind and allows your eyes to draw lines on the waves. The new Maquina V3 is a pure surfboard with the right feel and flex which will get you to where you want to be at any given time. The super thin profile throughout, paired with the thin rails, nose to tail, allow this stick to be ridden powered and to have the maximum amount of control at high speeds.
Although this board has all the drive you need for speed, the flat rounded squash tail releases instantly due to a progressive rocker; thus allowing for precise control over the direction of the board in any situation.
Blink if you dare! You may just miss an unforgettable moment of joy with this wave machine.

Classic PU Build
The Classic PU construction has been 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 H1–volume lightweight pigment in the resin. This type of resin fills up the holes in the foam and reduces the amount of resin content in the glass fibers, making the boards lighter. The Classic boards have low fiber memory and low foam memory at the same time. This low memory gives our boards a proper surfboard feel. We recommend the Classic PU technology to the riders who love a comfortable ride which this construction provides through its flexibility.
The LTD construction was introduced two years ago on our surf and SUP board range. Built with a lightweight technology that allows flex, control, and scoop-rocker line accuracy. The board is built with a CNC EPS core of 20 kgs/m3 density, then laminated with 200 grms biaxial glass fibers and finished with a 55 grams carbon net over a bamboo stepping deck vacuum glued onto the board at 90° compared to the stringer length so as to avoid excessive stiffness onto the board flex.
So this construction is slightly lighter than the Classic PU, for about 300-400 grams, but the difference is not as much the weight, but it is stronger and has the EPS foam core. The EPS core makes the board more buoyant because the foam retains more air. The boards in the LTD construction feel alive! Not only because of their light weight, but mainly due to the added floatation. These boards were created specifically to ride strapless and are ideal for strapless freestyle. They are meant for riders that want a lightweight board that can also be controlled at high speeds.
