TWIN TIP Kiteboard
OUR TWIN TIP KITEBOARD DESIGNERS DEVELOP BOARDS THAT PUSH BOUNDARIES. EACH BOARD IS TESTED METICULOUSLY TO ENSURE UNMATCHED PERFORMANCE.
When it comes to a twin tip kiteboard, Flex Tips give you a controlled pop, cushioned and smoothed landing. Carefully designed flex zones from front to rear of our Manakel twin tip kiteboard means your rail is moving and adapting to the water surface giving you fusion in chop. Stable grip ensures upwind performance, as well as making pops easier and more predictable. We’ve applied the latest snowboard technology in our Manakel twin tip kiteboard, to provide superior performance, pop and flex. Dare to experience innovation.
Our Manakel twin tip kiteboard is one of the smoothest rides on the water. Our secret: Polycarbonate Tips. The combination of the Polycarbonate tip and the moderate rocker line enhance acceleration, which improve edging and provide great upwind and light wind performance. The Manakel twin tip kiteboard is smooth, easy to ride, forgiving. It planes early and you will not outgrow this board for a while to come.

MANAKEL: THE TWIN TIP KITEBOARD CROSS OVER
The Manakel has become a favorite amongst our global team and riders. With this in mind, we redesigned the layup of the glass and carbon combinations of the board, which resulted in the new generation Manakel. The Manakel is designed for high-performance and comfort. This is one board you will never outgrow, the construction provides loads of pop while the shape, step down rail and shallow single concave gives the board a smooth feel.
The Manakel delivers aggressive pop and outstanding flex properties, due to the premium quality Paulownia Wood Core. Flex Tips provides a snappy feel, superior control during tricks and great upwind performance. The board carves through from choppy conditions to butter smooth flat sections, the carbon inlays in the standing area help maintain the edge and accelerate the pop.
The Manakel is alive under your feet, with direct feedback to the rider.
VANHUNKS TWIN TIP KITEBOARD TECHNOLOGY FEATURES
Our boards are reinforced with carbon fibers to ensure a durable product while reducing the weight. Carbon fiber has a high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high-temperature tolerance, and low thermal expansion making it perfect for high-performance boards.
We use ABS-sidewall technology for the rails of our Twin-Tip boards. An ABS-sidewall allows a board to be more stable at speeds, have more pop and accelerate faster.
Adjusted your stance according to your personal preference. The stance width on a kiteboard has an enormous impact on the characteristics of the board. A wide stance (59) allows the rider to apply their weight along the edge which drastically improves pop and landings. Narrow stance
(51) will improve the board’s performance and upwind abilities of the board in light wind conditions.
A top quality Biax Glass fabrics on the deck and the bottom of the board strengthen the board and offer an excellent durability to weight ratio. Our cloth is a double bais +45°/-45°, the fibers are rotated on a 45° angle vertically and horizontally.
Our boards are UV-protected to ensure the sun won’t break down the composites used in the construction of the board or fade the design.
The T12 bottom on our Twin-Tp boards reduces the scratch when riding over sand or rocks.
The Vanhunks signature G10 fins are indestructible! The fins offer excellent control over the tips and radically increase the board’s upwind riding performance.
Paulownia wood is dimensionally very stable and is not subject to warping, cupping or splitting, even when exposed to outdoor elements. It also has one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of any wood, which makes it the perfect core for our boards.
Our Flex2Flex Technology creates a dynamic ride that responds accordingly to different riding environments.
Our Cross-Flex Technology defines a smooth flex throughout the whole board from tip to tip as well as from rail to rail.
A shallow concave allows the board to maintain stability, making it easy to edge for the best possible upwind performance and edge control in a variety of conditions.
The smoother ride will increase the board’s speed and maintain consistent edge control.
Flex Tips Technology is revolutionary in ultimate control over your tricks. The Tips will flex upon impact with the water and straighten out your landing for a smooth and controlled landing.
Epoxies out-perform most other resin types in terms of mechanical properties and resistance to environmental degradation Epoxy constructions stand for durability, low porosity and strong bond strength.
M6 inserts provide a better fit of the bolts to the inserts, which will improve the bolt retention and be better for keeping the hardware locked down.
High-quality Stainless steel inserts – both durable and strong.

The super grippy contoured EVA traction pad features a toe ridge and heel support for a balanced feel. The pad delivers a killer combo of soft absorption on landings while not being so squishy that you lose the feeling and connection with your board when riding.
The footpads are formed from dual density foam that rebounds into shape better than regular EVA, so they do not compact and flatten down after a few sessions. These straps are super light and with multiple adjustments, clamping your foot to the pad and allowing you to tune the duck and the rake for any stance or riding requirements.
