The Ride was developed specifically for entry-level kiters with the understanding that you need a board that you will not outgrow after three days. The Ride is wide enough to offer maximum stability and ease-of-use but performance-oriented enough to be a great light wind machine for more advanced kiters. The Ride features the same premium accessories, construction, and components as our high end Freeride lines, so the only shortcut will be in your learning curve.
