The Ananas Mint is the ideal kitesurf board for newschool freestyle strapless tricks, small and gutless waves. The Mint was designed and developed by Alexander Pantyukhin, tasted prototypes on chinese, vietnam, and mauritius waves, so the board handles a large variety of conditions ranging from small to medium waves. With a medium rocker, the Ananas Mint planes early and generates speed. Looking at the bottom, we have used a very deep single concave in front changed to double back to the fins. Bottom deck shape helps nesting your feet into the board for incredible control. This guarantees an early planning with sharp accelerations on and off the surf while helping out dealing with the chop. Even at high speed, the board has plenty of grip and is easy to handle. This makes it the best choice for riders looking to get into the kitesurfing discipline. For more control and powered up turns we prefers the Quad set up.
The thin fish tail and sharp rails make the board snappy, and easy to turn, which make the Mint a great and fun board to ride. Minimal thick on all sizes to make the strapless freestyle tricks easier and get a more responsive board. A grab rail has been introduced at the front to help out during the tricks. Yet the general outline rather wide to get a lot of lift and make the most of the waves energy. All in all, this range is truly innovative and boards are specifically designed for wave riding from the bottom to the deck. The Ananas Mint will give you all the confidence you need to start off your wave career. Ride your style with this board, straps or strapless.
