The new Shinn King Gee Sea King delivers something unique to the lightwind market place – a truly enjoyable performance. Designed to increase your time on the water in less than optimal conditions this is a board you can ride even as the wind fills in without the need to rush back to the beach for something smaller.

Description: Lightwind, Big Guys

Complete with footpads and straps, this boards understated design is a showpiece with every part being tuned creating a board with the biggest windrange in the lineup. Instigator of light wind sessions this board is unreasonably suited to lighter days going far beyond what is expected for regular boards. The rocker is significantly flatter than other boards promoting early starting and effortless glide with versatile performance, balanced out by bi-lateral flex tips which towards the heel-side rail. 

King Gee truly is a step forwards in “less than” ultimate conditions enhancement, if you want to maximise both your time on the water and the quality of those sessions then look no further, this is the deck for you.

Size 
Choosing your size.
Whilst many riders still look at the length of the board when choosing their size it's much more relevant to look at the width.(see below) The length of the board can be affected by the shaping of the tip and tail - which in reality plays no part in the performance of the board. 
All of the 2013 Shinn George boards are available in multiple widths to allow you to find the perfect size for your weight, riding style and favoured riding conditions.


Fins
All Shinn twin tips are supplied with our high visibility G10 fins and deck protection plates. Shaped exclusively for us from G10 Epoxy (for unsurpassed durability), this 53mm shape provides exceptional grip for it"s size whilst still offering great manoeuvrability.

Rocker
Effective light-wind boards are not simply oversized regular boards, simply up-scaling a smaller board rarely gives good results. To achieve the light-wind performance we wanted in King George 3 we extended the flat section in the tips of the rocker without altering the radius of the central section that mostly helps with control. A slightly straighter outline into the tip area when compared to the Player increases both edge grip and upwind ability, ideal for situations where the kite is delivering less power. As with all Shinn boards, King George III features a central concave washing out to flat areas in the tips to provide both earlier planning and extra flex control.

Flex & Mould - Squoval Mould
The result of 10 years R and D the Squoval mould provides un-paralleled levels of bi-lateral flex in the tips of your board whilst maintaining rigidity under your feet. No other 3D mould shape can match the comfort and performance of the Squoval mould.

Core
What"s inside your board will make a huge difference to how it performs. There is a lot of talk about flex but the mount of flex is just the tip of the iceberg, what"s more important is WHERE the board flex"s and HOW FAST it responds after that flex. Each Shinn twin tip has a carefully engineered core that optimises these characteristics and enhances them for the target rider. Core materials, glass layup and mould shaping are all factors that help us in this area but the heart of every Shinn twin tip is comprised (mostly) of an Alabasia wood core…. No other core material offers the same blend of consistent flex over extended periods of time, feather like weight and near indestructible durability (not to mention environmental friendliness). We say mostly because there are some other secret materials in there but we"re not going to give away all of our tricks!
