Newave is a new french kiteboard brand specialising in strapless surf boards and skimboards. Waveriding is growing year on year as more riders look to mix it up and try different riding styles. Newave want to dispel certain myths: Waveriding is not hardcore, you can jump with strapless boards, and riders of any level can enjoy a kite surfboard.
Legendary master shaper Marco Copello designed the surfboards. Copello has shaped over 7500 boards. He and worked for many big windsurf (Bic, Fanatic,Tiga) and was involved in shaping the first twin tips for Bic over ten years ago. He has shaped boards for top pros including Manu Bertin, Raphael Salles, Anders Bringdal and many more.
Newave have already signed a great team to represent them including two PKRA riders: Alvaro Onieva (Spain) and Lee “Pasty” Harvey (UK) who is currently ranked 9th in the World for waveriding.
Maxtrack will be distributing Newave in the UK. They have been working in the UK kite scene for over 10 years and hold a portfolio of brands including MBS Mountainboards, Never Summer Snowboards, Flysurfer kites and Flyboards.
The Newave range currently consists of 3 boards, the 6’2 Surf, the 5’8 Play and the Skim. We will be getting a test board in soon and will get a review written up asap.
