Epic is one of the most popular brands in kiteboarding. Their team of highly skilled professionals is dedicated to craft high performance and quality equipment, equipment which shapes today’s champs. One of the most efficient freestyle kiteboards available today comes from Epic and it is called the Spartan. The Spartan is perfect for intermediate riders looking for a nice thrill or for pro riders who love to participate in world class competitions. The board blends awesome power with top control and it is the number one choice of many confident riders.

The 2011 Epic kiteboard line gathers three board models. It may not seem very impressive, but each kiteboard is carefully engineered and it delivers performance close to perfection. And when it comes to performance in freestyle, the Spartan is the number one board. It is designed by Dimitri Maramenides who knows everything about freestyle, so it has to be a great board.

The board offers a perfect balance between power and control and it can be used for fun and spectacular rides as well as in competitions. The Spartan has a compact outline, featuring a narrower profile and custom shaped tips. These features make it very dynamic and provide a fast and smooth glide across the waves. The flex pattern is especially optimized for freestyle. The heel area is stiffer, while the tips are very flexible. The board generates an explosive pop and offers high jumps and lifts. At the same time landings are smooth and predictable.

The concave bottom design assures optimal power release and keeps the board steady in fast bottom turns or at high speeds. Also, the board has an excellent grip and keeps the rider in control at all times. The G10 fins optimize the power delivery and minimize drag to assure a smooth ride. The Spartan has impressive upwind and planning abilities and it is very fun to ride. Epic has constructed the board using a full wood core and triple glass laminate. Stress areas are reinforced for extra durability. This structure makes the board incredible light and tough and provides the optimal freestyle flex pattern.

The Epic Spartan is also very comfortable to ride. It is equipped with light EVA memory Pads and easy adjustable straps. The rider can choose from two different stance options the most comfortable one. The Epic Spartan is the board which takes freestyle to a new level and gives you the confidence you need to perform amazing tricks.
