Discipline: On-shore waveriding
The Cypher maintains a relatively straight tail section, with the overall tail width being reduced when compared to previous versions. This helps to bury the tail for more powerful turns.
The Cypher has a straighter hip to stabilize the board in higher wind and with higher speed bottom turns. This helps to maintain the versatility in both onshore and sideshore conditions.
The Cypher features a full nose with a lot of area relative to its size. The rider can move forward on the board for lighter winds and planning, stepping back for more aggressive riding.
The width of the Cypher is the key to its light-wind, small wave and onshore performance.
The tail pulls in quite significantly for its width, which help with more powerful top turns than traditional short / parallel outline boards.

The Key to the Active Stringers Strength is the stiff and ultra lightweight carbon I-beam through the center of the board. This prevents the board from over flexing and damaging the laminate when flexing beyond the working range. The secret to the Active Technology flex is the high memory polypropylene layer, that allows the full bi-axial carbon skins to flex and compress within the working range. The combination gives a perfect blend of maximum flex, with maximum durability.
Championing our drive towards a more sustainable kiteboard, the Active Bamboo technology combines our Patented Active Stringer for durability and flex control, with a durable (and more sustainable) bamboo sandwich outer skin.
The Active Bamboo is constructed using Entropy Super Sap Resin Systems, which reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by 50% over conventional petroleum based epoxies. This resin system replaces petroleum-based raw materials with renewable plant-based materials. The raw materials going into Entropy Resins are co-products or waste products of industrial processes, which do not compete with food sources or displace food-based agriculture.
The Flytech construction combines a lightweight EPS core with a sandwich hi-density standing area, for an excellent combination of strength and reduced weight. Due to the lightweight core, the Flytech construction makes use of additional layers of glass fiber, resulting in an extremely durable outside skin ideal for everyday riding.
