The Tomo shape is already well regarded in surfing so we wanted to offer a kite version of this Simmons-based shape with a few sport-specific tweaks. For the Loco Simmons Directional Kite Board we firstly made the construction epoxy/bamboo sandwich for added strength. We’ve also made the volumes lower than their surf counterparts and added some concave to the deck alongside the pads and deck plugs for maximum flexibility.
Riders can opt for strapless or simply add straps for that locked in feel. We’ve also integrated a GoPro mount at the nose so you can capture those killer wave sessions. The shape is firmly pitted at intermediate to advanced kite surfers looking for a wave shape. Available in Loco green or orange ensuring you look the bomb even in the depths of a North Sea winter! With a bit of extra volume these boards excel in fluky winds and we’ve even had 85kg riders using the 5’8” in 12kts with a 9m kite! Choose from ex text and new.
