The new Placebo V4 by RRD is designed to make kiteboarding accessible to all riders. It is a very user friendly freeride board that can offer a very smooth cruise or help you progress. As the RRD team says, the Placebo boards are easier, more accessible and more fun to ride than ever.

And they are right. From the moment you set this board on the waves you will notice how easy it is to control and how smooth it feels. The board features a user friendly, more curved outline which allows it to start planing earlier and assures controllable turns.

This outline also allows it to run upwind much easier and assures superior edging control. The deeper concave design makes it very steady and assures a smooth water flow for a clean glide. The optimal flex keeps the rider comfortable and assures smooth landings. The Placebo V 4 packs some good pop, so it can perform more advanced tricks with ease.

The Flow 5 Texalium G10 fins assure a good grip even in challenging conditions and improve upwind performance. The board comes with Screwit System V2 + Assy Strap V2 mount system and straps. It is crafted using a laminar wood core plus ABS sidewalls and a Crystal polished clear deck and bottom.
