The Tiki is a long wooden board (most often Paulownia) specially designed and imagined for kitesurfing.
It is a formidable weapon in light winds with an easy start from 8 knots, but which also holds up perfectly to 30 knots and more.
The length of its rail and its flexibility thus offer a great ability to go upwind and a feeling of light and soft gliding.
Ideal for getting started with Strapless, its great lift forgives beginners’ positioning errors and allows them to focus more on the balance between steering the kite and navigating on this pretty board.
The feedback and sensations are excellent thanks to the Paulownia wood which faithfully transmits the movements of the board to the feet.
The Tiki absorbs the chop and offers an incredibly smooth ride.
No more being limited to left and right tacks without any real movement on the kitesurfing spots.
The flexibility and the large size of the Tiki offers you an exceptional upwind ride and without having to force the legs, you can swallow the miles of navigation with a disconcerting ease.
Thus, the Tiki is a great tool to explore the spots and to move not only from the beach to the sea and back, but also from top to bottom.
As you can see, it is also the perfect companion for big downwinds.
The Tiki offers another dimension to kitesurfing!
