Typical Mark lovers:
The Mark’s shape is defined by a long straight outline in between the feet to feed even more grip to the rider. On the base of the board the channel supports the effect of the 5th fin even more; lots of control on high speed take-offs and (sketchy) landings.
The Mark has a light to moderate rocker for the best planing/chop killer -ratio.
The uncompromised full carbon lay-up ensures maximum performance, ultimate control in powered conditions and instant release of energy in the rebound.
Base: -45 / + 45 carbon by Toray – Japan + 2 unidirectional stringers parallel lengthwise
Top: 0/90 spread tow fabric carbon by Toray.
2 big carbon reinforcement patches at the high impact zones around the inserts
80% paulownia wood, 20% high density foam on the toe-side create the performance core of the Mark.
This 80/20 ratio ensures the optimal combination of weight, control and performance/ rebound.
Weight of 135*40 deck only: 2,205kg
The 5th fin is literally the center of the Mark’s design.
Grip, speed, and the ability to load the rail of the board to new extremes in all conditions is in its DNA.
But the advantage works both ways; whilst riding the low-end the Mark’s 5th fin keeps you from drifting off the delicate upwind-tack and helps you to generate apparent wind.
We did not underestimate the importance of well fitting high quality straps, pads, handle and fins. It’s your only contact with the board, so they better be good! Built with a clever all-in-one construction so they are extremely easy to mount or adjust and don’t weigh the board down!
Placing the inner inserts for the most narrow stance closer to the heel side enhances comfort and control for our featherweight warriors.
Don’t worry if our straps don’t work for you, they are sold separately so you can cheat on us with other brands.
Find the perfect setup for your stance and shoe size with 5 radial and 4 axial options.
Full G10 epoxy/glassfiber pressed tech fins; proven to be the most durable choice for twintip fins. The Mark comes equipped with 4 x 45mm fins + a 35mm center fin for optimum boost/upwind ratio.
The fully padded strap works for a wide variety of shoe sizes and insteps and even the biggest sizes have full protection on the sides with our neoprene side-protectors. Our pads are comfy, very comfy. With a small toe-bar to ensure you won’t loose your board boosting high.
Why sea lions?
Sea lions are incredibly smart, curious and love to goof around. Witnessing their speed and agility while they chase and fool each other is as fascinating as it is entertaining.
This spectacle gets even more mesmerizing when rays of sunlight play along dancing and fragmenting the ocean into a million shades of blue.
It all becomes fluid.
Kiters are no different, using natural elements to goof around, to play.
It equals ultimate freedom: the quality of being independent of necessity.
So go out and play.
