As the RRD team says, the Gitana V2 has been renewed after a long winter testing session in South Africa and tuned to offer you the perfect sideshore waveriding session. This is a board engineered to take on fast and thick waves and conquer them.

A wider outline, especially in the nose area makes the Gitana V2 very powerful and accurate. This shape also allows it to get on a plane much faster and assures excellent upwind performance. A slightly wider, pin shaped tail makes it turn faster and with more accuracy.

Thinner rails in the nose area allow the rider to catch waves with ease, while the optimized volume distribution improves floatation for a smoother and more stable glide. The Gitana features a concave bottom with slight flat to V tail and a tail kick to assure stability and better control during radical turns. The rocker increases progressively in the nose and tail area to assure improved planing performance, a good speed and acceleration and to keep the rider in control even in challenging conditions.

The Gitana is equipped with a thruster fin setup which makes it agile and fast and adds the right amount of grip. It is built using a PU/Bamboo/Carbon/polyester resin structure which assures an optimal strength to weight ratio and generates perfect flex and accuracy.

nice looking and fun to ride. glides very well and carves with precision. it turns tight, drives well upwind. in chop it bumps a bit, but can be handled. it's fast and snappy.
