The way to a split kiteboard...

I initially traveled without a board. While I was in learning, it was ok because I was pretty much tied to a school to take lessons at. Once I got the jist of it, I wanted to be free from that constraint. 

I wanted to be able to kite in different places, travel and get off the beaten path. When I searched travel boards, I couldn't justify spending $1300 on a travel board, but I found your on and this was the perfect price point. A board I can travel with and also not brake the kite bank. I was really impressed with the quality of the board when I received it.

The width of that board is perfect too. I like that it’s a bit wider than most my boards but when traveling it’s perfect. When traveling you’re kind of at the mercy of the wind and when traveling I only bring one board. My experience with the Re volt 140.43 is that if you have a light wind day, the width of the board can make it behave like a light wind board and allows you to kite in light wind. It’s also small enough to carry in a luggage, but yes if it can fit in a back pack that would be awesome too. The rectangular shape helps you when you have to really edge in days when it’s ripping. It also being a splitboard, it has just enough flex to where it actually makes the board easier to handle.

If you want to get a proper experience of a country when traveling there to kite, having a split board makes a big difference to the overall trip experience because some spots are not by a kite school. It’s exciting to find a hidden place, pull your car over, pump your gear, put your board together and experience that area.  

Some of the most memorable spots I’ve ever kited were in a remote spot of a country. Those places tend to give you the true rawness of what that country is about and its natural world. 

The Re volt has given me the ability to experience kitesurfing those remote places.

One example was on a kite trip along the coast of Portugal and Spain. We were at the tail end of the trip as we crossed the border into Spain and pulled into this town called  Huelva to get lunch as we were on our way to Tarifa being the last spot. I noticed it was windy there, so I pulled up my wind app and saw there was a beach close by called Punta Umbria and meter was saying 20kts...I put my board together and drove to the spot….wind was perfect, a couple locals from Huelva where there kitesurfing, just having fun enjoying their spot and I was merely a guest as I witnessed with my Re volt.

Did a quick session, then just chilled.
