We all have had dreams of flight as we would watch a bird gliding across a sea breeze. Riding a hydrofoil has a sense of bringing this sensation of flight close to a reality. That is why we called the Ride Engine hydrofoil kiteboard the Bird Machine. We built a board that we would all ride. Not too big getting in the way and not too small to make things hard. Smart design with precise rail chines, a bottom shape that breaks surface tension promoting deflection, a more kicked nose to achieve early planning and eliminate nose pearling, a kick tail that allows us to pump efficiently though the lulls all in a strong lightweight construction.
• Compact outline shape that planes early and offers nimble control and connection to the foil. • Double concave hull contour that that tracks on touch down and breaks water surface tension for early release and controlled deflection. • Tail kick for pumping clearance. • Slight deck concave that projects better board feel and balance. • Lightweight EPS core in a vacuum bag construction process. • Wood veneer reinforcement lamination of deck and bottom. • High density foam I-Beam foil box construction. • Full deck EVA pad with inserts for strap placement.
