Kiteboarding is a fun and spectacular extreme sport. Learning it is not very difficult if you have proper guidance and good gear. A beginner kiteboarder needs a reliable user friendly kite and a forgiving board. If you already have a good kite you should take a look at the Cardboards Tyro. Tyro is the perfect board for novice and beginner riders who know a little about kiteboarding. The board is forgiving, easy to handle and very stable. At the same time it packs enough pop and it reaches a decent speed if you wish to perform new tricks.

The board can be used for learning basic kiteboarding maneuver as well as for progression. The great thing about it is that it is still fun to ride after you advance and improve your skills. The board has an increased flex pattern which makes it very comfortable to ride and absorbs the wave impacts. At the same time this flex pattern makes it very responsive and provides a good pop when needed. The ergonomic profile, featuring a rounded outline makes it very stable and generates a smooth glide. The board can be powered up and used even in lightwind conditions.

Cardboards has used a double concave bottom design to make sure that the board can handle a wide range of wave conditions. The hull design also increases the stability, optimizes the power delivery and assures better control. The rider can enjoy a faster speed or perform his favorite tricks without any effort at all. The Cardboards Tyro is constructed using a Paulownia wood core combined with triaxial laminate layups.

This structure generates the forgiving smooth flex pattern and makes the board very responsive. It also makes it light and durable. The board is equipped with 50 mm fins which provide a better grip in turns and at fast speeds and with easy adjustable Velcro footstraps. It comes with a one year warranty. The Tyro is a great board for beginners and it is available at an affordable price.
