Bang have thrown a flat rocker for easy planing and acceleration in the BOWMOQ, and at 43 centimetres wide, this board is also gifted with amazing light wind performance. It's fast, and although it's wide, it's still really responsive. Early intermediates will appreciate that it's still easy to dig an edge in to slow down when you're overpowered. Bow kiters looking for a board that can run alongside the wind range of their kite will like it too. There's plenty of pop for tricks - to land them you don't have to be a pro: Bang believe this is the optimum width for a board like this and makes landings so easy. Bigger riders, you can bring it on as well! Size: 136cm x 43cm.
The Pimp's a little more rounded in nature and the pintail guarantees effortless control and wave compatibility. Bang say they've found another magic form in this board too. Advanced kiters should appreciate the perfect edges: designed to allow you to carve hard, as well as load up enough power for charged-up wakestyle tricks. Yet these edges, believe it or not, are still forgiving enough for beginners to get on with it. Carefully engineered flexibility puts you in command of moves. Bang profess to offer boards with no 'knick-knacks', hence their very competitive prices. Size: 128cm x 38cm.
