freeride windsurf board
125 l, 135 l, 145 l (33 gal)
Since 2004 the name X-Cite Ride is the trademark for comfortable and sporty free riding and the current version with the ‚Plus‘ is no exception. Outstanding test reports have confirmed this. The French WIND magazine stated about the 145 that „planing in passive mode is efficient and better than average… and your success rate in jibes will go up like a rocket“. (La prise de planing en mode passif est efficace et se situe du bon côte de la moyenne… Votre taux de réussite en jibe ne peut que monter en flèche!)
The 6th X-Cite Ride generation features the latest and best traditional shape and outline concepts. As such they offer all the virtues that narrower shapes offer over those of the new modern widebody freeriders. You step on them and feel immediately at home.
They feel and ride very predictably as you know it from your previous freeride boards. Sailors – who do not like how the wide body freeride boards feel and ride or won‘t adapt their riding style – will find it much easier to exploit the full performance of the X-Cite Rides and make them much faster.
The even bottom curve and the long planing surface allow the boards to release easily. They plane super smoothly, without requiring an active style of sailing. And with the loose water position the boards accelerate to exciting speeds already in marginal winds. Being narrower, they feel at all times comfortable and super controllable even in very rough waters cushioning chop competently.
