Freeride and freestyle are perhaps the most popular kiteboarding disciplines. Many riders would love to have a board which they can use for both these disciplines. Such a board is the new 2012 ABoards Z-Series. It is engineered using a special shaping and construction technology which makes it powerful and fast, yet easy to handle and very reactive. The Z-Series is quite a forgiving board, and it can be used by advanced as well as by less experienced riders without worries. It is the kind of board which provides plenty of pop and an incredible speed when needed, yet it can feel very comfortable and easy to control.

A new series of ABoards kiteboards is ready to start the new 2012 kiteboarding season in full throttle. All boards are crafted according to the highest quality standards and intended to offer the best performance in their class. The new 2012 ABoards Z-Series is a powerful, yet user friendly board which can cover the needs of all freestylers and freeriders out there.

The board has a user friendly shape which generates a smooth and fast glide. At the same time it has a softer flex pattern which makes the board responsive and easy to handle at all times. The ABoards Z-Series is easy to control and reacts quickly to rider input. It is able to reach impressive speeds and perform high jumps and spectacular aerial moves, but it also has smooth and predictable landings and feels very reliable. The Z-Series uses a special 3D bottom featuring hydrodynamic stabilizer strakes which assure optimal control when the rider reaches high speeds and assures excellent stability.

The 3D tunnel concave bottom deck assures a fluid and smooth glide. The new rocker line assures a quick acceleration and a balanced pop. It also propels the board upwind without much effort from the rider. The new 3D deck featuring special three stage flex zones makes the board reactive and assures a very comfortable ride. Two step upwinders extend the tip outline and keep the board steadier at high speeds.  These upwinders also provide a balanced combination of pop and flex and significantly improve the upwind performance of the board.

The ABoards Z-Series is build to last, using snowboard technology. It features a wood core which assures a light and responsive structure plus integrated anti stress stringers which make the board virtually indestructible. The Z-Series is one of the most reliable and versatile freeride and freestyle boards available today.

It planes quicker and it's smoother in chop than many other kiteboards from more renowned brands.

It's well built and runs excellent in flat waters. Perfect pop and nice flexy tips to smooth landings. And you can really push it for extra speed upwind and downwind. In chop it performs well, if you dig the rail a it harder....more
