Flysurfer Razor Kiteboard
Unlike conventional race boards the Razor has some flex which gives it a more comfortable ride.
An almost indestructible freeride directional board
Every day is a kite day at Flysurfer and the Razor is here to help with that by making kitesurfing fun even in conditions in which you might not even have thought it possible to ride. The Razor is a performance orientated freeride directional board which is built with super sturdy snowboard technology. You will get more days on the water and super light winds will become fun! We did not want to build a super fragile and bulky sandwich volume board, nor did we want a high performance machine which for most people is un-rideable. We just wanted a board which was really fast, helped us get on the water even more often, and have as much fun as possible despite marginal wind conditions.
The most important feature and the key to the unbelievable performance are the 25cm long fins, which offer the best compromise between user experience, ease of use, and performance. We are extremely proud of the new fin boxes. It is a massive challenge adding fin boxes to a snowboard construction board. The innovative mini-tuttle-box-solution connects the fins with the super thin board (16mm). Another highlight of the Razor is the extremely pressure resistant and light Airex foam core which is laminated with a robust layer. Due to this layer the Razor is extremely durable and easy to transport. The top layer is coated with an anti-slip paint to make switching stances easier and to give you a more secure stance. Unlike conventional race boards the Razor has some flex which gives it a more comfortable ride. The package is rounded off with four footstraps and comfortable angled pads. The Razor is the only board of its kind.
The Razor becomes a machine when going downwind. Even in the lightest winds it gains speed rapidly when you head upwind. The board is designed in a way that you can edge and ride it similar to a twin tip. Tacking and jibing become incredibly easy with the Razor. Due to its high speed, it glides very well even in gusty conditions. From now on you won’t need anyone to give you a lift after a downwinder, since riding upwind is so fast and easy. If you want to go touring, enter some fun races or slalom events, ride lakes or even boost a couple of jumps – the Razor will handle it. The Razor is a very unique board, offering maximum fun and the thrill of speed in a simple and durable package. Ride it fast!

An extremely light and reinforced Airex foam core forms the basis of the Razor. The glass fibre laminate gives it the necessary stiffness for a fun riding experience. As always Flysurfer has paid close attention to durability and longevity. An extremely tough construction is finished with a robust top sheet, laminated with an anti-slip coating to help your feet maintain grip when adjusting your stance. We have high standards for quality so only use the best materials in order to guarantee the best results even if that means higher production costs. The innovative construction means the Razor takes up less space in your board bag when travelling than any other race board, and also is a lot more resistant to dents and possible damage.
One of the biggest challenges was fitting robust fin boxes into such a thin board. We were successful in integrating the mini-tuttle-boxes which allows us to be the first kiteboarding company to release a board like this. The Razor comes with three 25cm long G-10 fins. This is currently the most robust material for kite fins and offers the best flex to stiffness ratio.
The Razor is delivered with a specially made pad-strap combination. The EVA pads offer a great grip and are raised at an angle allowing you to ride the Razor flat on the water more easily. This also offers good comfort for riding in wavey or choppy conditions as well as allowing you to jump. The straps can be adjusted at either side using a Velcro system and fit a size EU 39 up to 46 easily.
Never has it been so easy to get on the water in light winds. This is due to the way the fins are positioned and shaped, the shape of the deck, tucked under edge and the flex. The Razor is a little harder to ride than the Flydoor however it is a lot easier than most race boards – without sacrificing too much in regards to performance. The main reason it is a lot easier than a race board is that you can ride it on its edge like a normal twin-tip for a few metres to get going. When you get the hang of it you will be hooked on the thrill of speed in light wind conditions and the amazing upwind performance. The Razor shows its real potential in light wind and flat water conditions.
