Gaastra’s kiteboarding gear is manufactured according to the highest performance and quality standards. Whether we talk about kites or kiteboards, each of them is carefully crafted and optimized to suit the needs of all riders out there. And if you need a board which delivers explosive pop and it can easily power up your freestyle session, it is time to take a closer look at the Matrix. The Matrix board is built using a sandwich Wood construction; it has enhanced pop and flex characteristics. It is very dynamic and powerful and it is ready to take freestyle to an entire new dimension.

Freestyle is the most spectacular kiteboarding discipline and perhaps the most demanding one. It requires talent, hard training and lots of courage to perform amazing tricks which stun the audience. Apart from a great set of skills, a great freestyler needs a great kiteboard, one which works together with him when it is time to push the limits to a new level.

One of the best freestyle boards available today is the Gaastra Matrix. The matrix is built using the latest technology and the best composites and it blends huge pop and power with unmatched control. Gaastra has engineered the Matrix using a full Wood core and biax fiberglass layups. This structure makes it extremely durable and light at the same time. Another advantage of this construction is that it generates the perfect flex pattern required for freestyle and makes the board duper responsive. It performs outstanding in a wide range of wind and wave conditions. The 3D tips complement this structure by adding extra pop.

The rider can perform extraordinary jumps and lifts while he is in complete control. The board responds accurately to any command. The concave bottom design assures smooth landings and increases the board’s stability as well as the overall control. Even at high speeds or when performing hardcore maneuvers, the board is reliable and steady. The Gaastra Matrix is equipped with four 50 mm G10 fins which optimize the power delivery and increase the grip in tight turns or at high speeds. Since it is a board which offers massive pop, the Matrix is not quite what a novice rider is looking for. Instead it is a very appealing board for advanced and pro riders who live to feel the ultimate thrill out on the waves.

The board has multiple stance options and the easy adjustable footstraps provide top comfort throughout the entire session. When it comes to high performance freestyle, the Matrix is just what you need to feel right at home out on the waves.
