Ran out of space for pics, but you can see 'em on www.litewavedesigns.com or call and I'll email them to you.

Quad Surf 5’8”
Over a year of R&D in Mauritius, California, and Florida led Litewave to develop Quad Surf wave board. It is designed for the waves. A pulled in bat-tail outline and a faster-gun style rocker allows this board to really drive through and keep speed in the bottom turns, while the quad-fin configuration gives incredible grip for snappy off-the-lips. The quad fin also makes for a wave board with limitless top end speed yet very snappy and responsive feel unlike other thruster configurations which are slower.

The Quad Surf has been built to really withstand the abuse that a kite rider will give it. Machined EPS core is wrapped with wood-veneer/glass/epoxy composite laminate to provide impact resistance and the optimum strength-to-weight ratio.
Size: 5’8”

Wing Lite Wind Series: 146, 153, 161
The Wing is a highly evolved design that looks different to anything else on the market. Litewave is famous for producing quality light wind boards, but this design sets the new standard. The flex pattern on the wing is determined by thinness and materials, but also by the parabolic sidecut that is borrowed from snowboard designs. This unique shape gives the Wing an unbelievable amount of “load and pop” that makes riding the Wing feel like you are on a snowboard in bottomless powder. This board surprises everybody that rides it and has really caught on with beginners and experts alike. The wide tips really let you drive upwind and maximize planning. The sidecut gives it amazing flex and pop. Reduced rocker gets it planning quickly, but it is not flat. Ample rocker and flex really let this board perform in 20 knot winds and thigh-high chop as well.

Construction is unique and, of course, durable. Down the center-line of the board is a 5” wide wood stringer that really adds pop, shock absorption for chop, and strength. We use PVC foam for the remainder of the core to reduce weight. This composite has proven to work well in these larger boards.

Sizes: 146x45, 153x45, 161x45

Vision twin tip Series: 129, 132, 136
The Vision is a proven design that has been minimally tweaked in 2009.. The intelligent outline has slightly pulled-in tips for unmatched carving ability and slashing but straight sections in the center for rocketing upwind performance. The 3-stage “hooked-up” concave is actually made up of 3 radii for a more grip where you need it and a flatter section in the center for massive pop and release in powered wake-style moves. The Visioni excels in powered up wake-style riding, freestyle, and even sliders…just take off the fins.

Litewave pioneered snowboard construction techniques in kiteboards back in 1999 and have been charging the way since. For the Vision we use high-pressure compression molding with a lightweight but super-strong CNC shaped PVC core, epoxy, and strategically placed composite materials to deliver minimum weight with maximum strength and pop and just the right amount of flex.

Sizes: 129x39, 133x41, 137x44
MSRP: $649US

Spirit twin tip Series: 132, 137, 144
The Spirit is the result of testing over 80 boards this season in a collaborative effort between myself and Tarifa board guru, Tad Ciastula. Development of the Spirit was initiated with a mission
to make the most high performance freestyle board possible while keeping it light, strong, a good value, and an appearance that highlighted the Kapok wood core. Later in the development, we went for larger sizes that are geared for more light wind and/or bigger riders.

The smooth ride and massive pop are really the standout feature, but the one that you will notice first is the construction. The wood core with highlighting graphics really grab your eye.

The Spirit has a overall thin profile with thin rails that really grab and allow you to go fast. Deck contours gradually thin out the tips while torsion-bar convolutions in the deck let the board flex length-wise but not tortionlly. Selective Flex lets the board ride smoothly and initiate turns easily, but not let your tip flex sideways therefore changing the fin angle. You want it to be stiff tortionally so you don’t lose grip. The wood core is super nice for ‘load and pop’, too.

We have made the Spirit so that the 132 will allow a top-level competitive rider get the most performance, but any rider will appreciate the smooth control, great pop and upwind ability of these boards. The 144 is a perfect first board for most riders.

The blend of composite materials and wood together with an extensively performance-tested design will make you feel totally in control and give you the confidence to take it to the next level; whatever your level. Oh yea, it screams upwind so you can spend more time throwing the big moves.

The tortion-bar suspension is really unique. Everybody has tip-flex, but the Spirit has tip-flex that only flexes in one plane. This gives a lot more performance. The type of wood we are using is also very unique. Kapok is a Thai wood that has excellent properties in terms of weight, flexibility and bonding.
Sizes: 132x41, 137x44, 144x47

Litewave UltraPlush Lace-up: The UltraPlush is just that. A 6” wide lace-up section covers more of your foot; more like a binding than a footstrap. The pad is soft and superbly contoured to keep your heel locked in, form-fit your arch, and a toe-shelf lets you really hang on with your toes. Cool thing is that the lace-up part uniquely attaches to the footpad independently of the screw that holds it down to the board. This makes it super easy to attach and remove. Shop techs will appreciate this. UltraPlush comes standart on all Litewave twin-tip boards or is available separately.
Two sizes: S/M and L/XL. Black only.
