Kona Windsurfing has announced the launch of a brand new board, built on the successful Kona One concept.
The Kona CarbOne is an exclusive niche product with only superior material used, to create as strong and light board as possible.
"We have listened to the Kona-community. There is a market segment demanding a product where only quality and performance has been taken into account. CarbOne is the answer to this demand", reveals Joachim Larsson, from development team.
The new board is built on the successful Kona One concept. The two boards have the same measures. The difference is in the material used. CarbOne is constructed using carbon which makes it lighter and more rigid but also priced at a different level.
"We believe very much in the new product and would say it will be able to compete with the fastest freeride and slalom boards in the markets", adds Larsson.
Kona Windsurfing will continue to put its main focus on Kona One that in just a few years has evolved to being one of the largest one-type windsurfing classes in the world.
The concept is built on a very flexible design, with a step-tail as a distinct feature. This basically means two boards in one, in light conditions the full length is used, while the step-tail shortens the board in stronger wind and gives excellent planning capabilities.
