|Maelstorm is a new kitesurf brand that recently launched at the Surf Expo in Florida, offering awesome prices across their range of boards and accessories, both online and with a growing number of retail partners.
The Anglo-American partnership (?) is based out of China and ships products directly out of their warehouse.
Maelstorm launched originally, producing impact vests, sunnies, helmets, bags, rashies, wind-metres etc., but it's their boards that generated most interest at the industry's biggest show in September. This beginner/light wind board is constructed with laminar wood core technology (paulownia wood core, triaxial fibreglass), ABS rails and stainless steel inserts, it certainly doesn't shirk in the use of quality materials. The actual shapes feature a concave bottom profile and at 42-44cm wide, are designed with stability and fast planing in mind for the beginner rider.
Maelstorm boast an inexpensive, light wind board with a smooth ride and great upwind ability, that will not only have beginners sniffing around.
