Pro Kontact 2016
Rough conditions medium to big waves
Big wave slayer
Drivy bottom turn
High speed control
Light team construction
The pro kontact has been in our line up for a long time now, and it has one purpose; to be the ultimate board when the waves get big, really big. Large ocean going swells move fast, and when they hit the reef they can be travelling at massive speeds.
To catch them, and of course shred them you need a board that is comfortable at speed, yet has a rail that grips tighter than an overweight trapeze artist. The pro kontact has been designed from the ground up with these conditions in mind, it is a confidence inspiring partner for those days where even the brave fear to tread. Everything that makes this board fast and predictable in its handling on big waves also makes it an insane chop killer.
However, the real secret to this boards success are the rails. When a huge wall of water is towering above you and a wave of consequence is looking to send you all the way back to the beach in a body bag you need to know that when you stick your bottom turn you’ll have more bite than a hungry vampire on a full moon. The pro kontact is the board that you’ll take to the beach on those days when you can hear the roar of the ocean long before you can see it
Although this board is designed and marketed as a big wave board, I actually use it for nearly all conditions except light and marginal wind. The reason is that the board is a true kitesurfing board, small, nimble, and fun. Kitesurfing requires wind, wind leads to chop and more intense conditions, wave riding in medium to strong winds lead to chop, scalloped waves, and speed from the kite. What else would you want? I super stable, biting, rail to rail board that gives you confidence is all true kitesurfing conditions. This is the board is the best out there hands down.
