The ultimate crossover wave kite surfboard
Meet the Klokhouse, your ultimate crossover wave kite surfboard. The one board quiver for everyone who kites as well as surfs. Or for the kiter that focusses on wave riding. Where the kite is used mainly to get into the wave and the boards needs to surf like a normal surfboard.
It’s really like kitesurfing on your everyday surfboard. It has the same flex, weight and feel that everyone loves when surfing. Now available in a board that can cope with the abuse that kitesurfing brings to a board.
The Klokhouse is based on a traditional high performance shortboard with a little added volume with in the middle, to make it friendly for average surfers. It has a fair bit of rocker in the nose which is flattened out in the tail. This makes the board plane earlier and helps upwind performance.
Medium to thin rails make it grip the water and give you control at high speeds which are typical when kitesurfing. The squash tail is really thin for optimal feel with the water. The bottom features a single concave throughout, which gives enormous drive and control.
The Klokhouse comes with the Kite+ hex-skin construction as standard. If you want more strength, for freestyle and bigger jumps, go for the optional extra sandwich layer under the front foot.
Choosing a surfboard and board size for both kitesurfing and surfing is tricky, as you usually kite on a smaller board than you surf on. In this case, choose the board as you would a normal surfboard. You wil probably kite on a size too big, but that is way less of a problem than surfing on a size too small.
