Roberto Ricci Designs has done a great job with the 2011 kiteboarding gear. The kites are awesome and the boards complement them. The 2011 kiteboard lineup is very extensive. The RRD team has made sure that any rider out there can find the right board to suit his skills and style. The Pescado or Fish board is a great choice for the rider looking for surf action with a kite. The board is enhanced to perform outstanding in small waves, but does great even in big ones. It is available in Classic and Limited versions and comes in two sizes. If you love kitesurfing, you must try the Pescado. It is guaranteed to offer tons of fun out on the waves.

From the first moment you set foot on the Pescado you know that it will offer you a superb kitesurfing session. The board is constructed using the latest technology and the best composites to meet the highest quality and performance standards. The Pescado may seem a surfboard at the first look, but it is a true blood kiteboard. Nevertheless, it packs enough volume to offer excellent floatability and sustain a heavier rider.

This feature does not affect handling, and the Pescado turns fast and it is easy to operate. The board has a hydrodynamic shape, with a fuller nose and a fish like swallow tail. This profile allows it to sprint fast across the water and deliver a drag free and very smooth glide. The tail provides optimal power release and allows the board to give a proper boost for the rider looking to perform tricks.

The RRD Pescado is a very dynamic board and packs nice power and top speed. It goes easily upwind and has good planning abilities, especially in small waves. The V bottom design allows it to offer optimal power and speed and balances very well the stability and grip. Even at high speeds, the Pescado is steady and allows the rider to focus on his maneuvers. The board is designed to accelerate fast, reach a nice speed and brake in an instant. It jumps and hangs nice and has extremely soft landings. The rider can perform any trick or ride fast, without worrying about losing control even for a second. As you already know, most RRD boards come in two or more versions. It is the case with the Pescado, which is available in Classic and Limited models.

The Classic version uses PU foam and polyester combined with PVC structure and it has a surf feeling out on the water, while the LTD version is based on an EPS core and PVC wrapping to assure a more dynamic flex and a lighter weight. The two models are extremely durable and can take all the possible damage without suffering any damage. The Pescado or the Fish (English translation) is available in two sizes and in two different graphic designs, depending on the version.
