Want a kiteboard that jumps and lands predictable and is easy to ride upwind?
Kitesurfers who come from a twintip background, really like the noseless designs.
Basically everyone loves the C.O.P.!
It has the characteristics that make a good noseless so nice to ride, it’s easy to get going, stable. Jumps and lands predictable and it is very easy to ride upwind, but in the waves it’s also a very nice surfboard. With a real surfboard feel. Easy to control, but slashy when you want it to. This is why we also offer this model as a standard surfboard to surf without a kite, it’s a really nice all round shape.
The parallel outline with the generous surface area in the tail make it track well, and when you kite in a straight line. Like when riding out, you can bury the rail and it levels out chops.
We designed a new channel concept for the C.O.P. model. The two channels on each rail are placed in between the feet. They are a shortcut of the rocker, giving you a straighter platform to push against when sailing upwind with your weight forward. When surfing the waves the channels don’t grip as much because you surf with your weight further back, and the board remains whippy and lose.
The C.O.P. Is a very easy to ride board, that will surprise any experienced rider as well as someone that is new to riding strapless.
The C.O.P. comes with 5 fin boxes as standard, giving you the choice of riding quad or thruster. Both the Hex-skin Glass as well as the Hex-skin Carbon versions are extremely strong. The Carbon version is quite a bit lighter and carbon naturally has a quicker response and better pop of the waters surface. The Glass version is heavier, still very strong and with a softer more comfortable flex to dampen chop. This board comes in the Hex-skin Extra strength construction as standard in both carbon and glass. An even stronger version can also be ordered, but that is only recommended for very heavy footed riders.
Our standard hex-skin construction, consists of the 50K foam core, the core is wrapped in a first layer of structural fibreglass, in a 45 degree orientation. This to keep the board as flexible as possible while making a very strong base. The deck is now layered with a honeycomb layer for more impact resistance. The bottom is left without honeycomb, again to maintain maximum flex.
All normal Klokhouse and Appleflap boards come with a single honeycomb layer. Optionally the glass boards can be ordered with an additional layer of honeycomb, specially for heavy footed riders. Normal use is fine without this layer, but sometimes you want this added durability. This is why ALL BOARDS UPTO 5’5” come WITH the additional layer of honeycomb. Because the smaller boards are used much more for strapless freestyle.
We also use this extra layer to mount optional inserts, because riding with inserts adds a lot of stress to a very small and specific area of the board.
The board is fully wrapped in another layer of fibreglass in the 0 and 90 degree orientation. The whole board, including fin boxes, leash plug and graphics is now pulled in a tight vacuum to compress all the layers together and to pressed onto the core for maximum connection. The board is then encased in the most sustainable epoxy resin available, this resin is tinted to give the boards their unique appearance. There are many colors available and even more on request! You can fully customise your boards appearance so it is unique and there is no one like it anywhere. After the boards are cured, they are hand finished and checked one by one to make sure the meet our exact standards, and you get the board of your dreams!
Hex-skin Carbon is similar in composition to the hex-skin Glass boards. But instead of glass we use 100% carbon fibre, there is no glass hidden underneath the top layer of carbon. Using carbon makes the board lighter and it makes it stick to your feet even better. Because the board is so light, it flows over the chops a lot better than you might expect.
To give the carbon boards their unique look the deck is finished with a tinted resin, that can be customised, pick your own color or mix multiple for a truly one of a kind board.
