The swiss board brand FFC manufactured the first eco-kiteboard by using BComp flax.
In the surf industry several brands made boards in a sustainable way. But for the first time the benefits of natural fibers have been utilized to create a twintip kiteboard. Manufactured by the Swiss custom board brand FFC, this new concept offers several benefits for the kiters.The weight reduction gives the board a nimble feeling and unmatched agility. With its PET/flax core and the unidirectional flax fiber layup it weighs just 1.9 kg. This is a 25% weight reduction compared to a traditional board with the same flex characteristics.Thanks to the natural fiber damping properties, unwanted high frequency vibrations are absorbed. Therefore the board can be built stiffer, giving a more aggressive pop, without sacrificing any ride comfort in choppy waves.
