Function :

The Matata Kite offers optimal output in low wind ranges and incredible upwind and planing abilities.

Introduction :

Derived from the concept of the Simmons surf boards, the Matata Kite retains the same characteristics : large tail with a deep concave and convex spoon under the nose.

This new shape release is closer to the original one. Considering your feedbacks on the evolution of this mystical shape, l'Ours has worked on this new shape to give a larger nose and a deeper single concave. Capacities while carving are upgraded thanks to a better rail-to-rail ability. The Nose being slightly rounder allows to straighten up the lines at the front foot section and gives better abilities in transition (tack) and upwind ride.

The big + this board has remains its acceleration capacity, once you get her in action she instantly planes. Plenty of surface when it's flat and when you dig the edge the concave at the tail channels the water generating speed and favouring upwind and quick rail to rail. When you push your heels down the board pops up heads upwind. The nose is sufficiently large to be buoyant if you need it but is also incredibly fluid due to the convex. Slapping caused by chop and hard touchdowns is reduced and smoother, there's no harsh shocks up front and likewise the concave under the tail adds this absorbtion when landing.

On the flat you have a playful and fluid board, you can almost drive her like she is a TT with a low kite, with great grip and record performance in the light wind. She's fantastic while freeriding or bump and jumping, handles the chop well and you'll be surprised that you don't feel the slapping thanks to the bellied nose.

While surfing she's at her best with winds ''On'' and ''Side-on'' and with waves that aren't to punchy. Buoyancy at low speeds, re-boosts and its small size are magic in suckey mushy waves. The waves become a nice little skatepark. No need for 2m and a ''side off" to lay down some sweet rollers, airs and laying it out on the bottom turns. It gives you a serious feeling of a Simmons surfboard.

Constructed with a new high quality technology 2SK (Double Sandwich Kevlar), relevant to an upgrade of our proven Bamby technology, this is really an incredible board at an incredible price.

It's THE fluid board for getting down in light wind, whether it's in surf, freeriding or bump and jumping.
