Fun to ride all round board which is lightweight and super smooth with good performance
Excellent condition, just some wear to the heelside base and edge of the neoprene on the footstraps
134 x 40cm
Awesome allround board with the comfortable ride you find with all Shinn boards, plus added grip and performance, a board which anyone can ride which are you never going to need to replace.
Featuring the latest revolutionary constant curve rocker technology and our top secret flex pattern ensures grip and power, yet brings superb control and easy turning capabilities into the game.
The SuperShinn's effortless POP combined with the legendary Shinn smooth ride will make every one of you smile through every session.
Every board starts with a CORE and the material used will determine both the long and short terms flex characteristics of the ride, it"s durability and of course it's weight. After countless prototypes and tests one material has proven to be far superior to any other in all aspects and that one material is nature's finest
.. wood. Using a full wood core means our boards maintain their prescribed flex patterns year after year and are not prone to sudden catastrophic failure as many other materials are.
The SuperShinn is supplied with 1st Quality, high pressure/temperature formed 53mm G10 fins. Proved many times over to be the best material for both durability and stiffness, anything else is just 2nd best. Hi-visibility red pigment makes finding your board in the water a breeze and the fins are fixed to the board with A4 grade INOX bolts and our bespoke 'foxes glacier mint' fin washers.
Conventional rockers have multiple radiuses however our new design maintains a constant curve from tip to tail. As power increases and you load the rail you naturally transfer more weight to your back foot, the cc rocker contact with the water remains constant (unlike multiple radius versions) no matter how your balance is distributed between your feet, meaning no trim adjustment and no increase in leg pressure is needed constant grip and constant power in all conditions. Massively increasing the lift in the extremes of the board has the added bonus of eliminating tip strike when riding in chop and that means no spray in the riders eyes ever.
First featured on last year's the Monk, our Squoval mould has become synonymous with comfort and performance. By allowing bi-lateral flex through the tips of the board whilst maintaining the form around the your feet intact we can produce boards that appear to absorb all chop with out slowing you down and without feeling energy-sappingly soft. When combined with our Constant curve rocker line and Progressive concave we offer the board that independent testers described as being 'good at everything, all of the time'.
Super Shinn 2012 Overview
Tired of having to choose between Performance and Comfort? Us too, it’s time for something new, a board that breaks the rules and opens the doors too riders to push themselves and their limits. We opened our mind to new possibilities and now it’s your turn.
The Supershinn was not conceived as a competition kiteboard but it’s certainly capable of competing at the highest levels. No board can offer so much performance in such an accessible package.
We’ve combined the highly developed freestyle outline, tweaked the successful Constant Curve rocker line first seen on the Monk, incorporated the incredibly popular Squoval mould and added into the mix our new Hydro-Flo tail conduits.
Were we successful? Judge for yourself but we seriously advise NOT buying another kiteboard before you try it!
Constant Curve Rocker
Conventional rockers have multiple radiuses however our new design maintains a constant curve from tip to tail. As power increases and you load the rail you naturally transfer more weight to your back foot, the cc rocker contact with the water remains constant (unlike multiple radius versions) no matter how your balance is distributed between your feet, meaning no trim adjustment and no increase in leg pressure is needed – constant grip and constant power in all conditions.
Core and Flex
Lighter, Durable, reliable…. Wood really is the best material for kite board cores and that’s why your Supershinn is built only from the finest variety. This board will perform the same in a years time as it does when new and all at a weight that would have other brands upping the price and claiming it to be a special addition.
Building on the incredible popularity of our previous Sneakers the SNEAKER S! integrates both the pad and strap into one seamless unit and introduces our brand new S-Traction grip. A well placed insert of memory foam located carefully under the heel ensure the pads will sculpt themselves perfectly to your stance and attach you to your board in never before experienced plush-ness.
High-grade G-10 fins 43mm
Your Supershinn comes complete with 43mm, hi-visibility RED, Epoxy G10 fins. No other material can rival G10 for durability in fin manufacture so don’t accept anything less on your board. Attached to the board with A4 grade, Inox bolts and secured with our own Foxes Glacier mint, fin washers… naturally!
Vertical Strake. The 90 degree strake at the edge of the conduit re-directs water flow over the entire surface of the fin enhancing the performance of the profile and allowing the use of smaller fins without the associated loss of grip and drive.
Variable rocker. The conduit INCREASES the rocker at the rail of the board whilst maintaining our incredibly successful Constant Curve through the central area. The effect? Less rail catching at speed and a more aggressive carve into your POP.
Improved Flex control. It’s no secret, softer tips add control to the board whilst stiffer ones improve POP…. until now! Through endless tests and experiments we’ve used the conduits to re-define tail flex and provide control AND POP; the best of both worlds!
The Shinn Squoval mould is the evolution of 10 years of flex R and D. When combined with the Hydro-Flo conduits this mould allows us to control the lateral torsional tail flex (thus increasing POP) with out compromising the ride enhancing mid flex.
When combined with our Constant Curve rocker and Progressive Concave the Squoval mould enables us to make seriously comfortable kiteboards, no matter the conditions.
