RRD Dolphin1 Hydrofoil Surfboard
KITEFOILBOARD / SURFFOILBOARD
The Dolphin1 is a full composite board with a wood deck and bottom, it has PVC reinforcement under the heel area and a special shaped full concave deck. It allows your feet to be completely pointed down towards the nose and the middle part of the board. A correct foot and legs position is what you want to have when you foil. The rails have a special pronounced tucked under edge bevel, which reduces the impact when you come down from height.
So touchdowns are very smooth when the nose touches the water and allows you to quickly get up and go again instead of a nosedive. At the same time, it has a nice and thin volume that helps the board to stay light; all these characteristics are perfect for a freeride shape. The size is 160 x 52 cm, so it is balanced for riders of any type of height and depending on your skills and preferences you can have around 10 cm of footstrap adjustment in the front and in the back, next to the different options of where to place the mast on the bottom.
- PVC reinforcement
- Comes with 3 adjustable RRD/Dakine straps
- 4 hole adjustable mast plate inserts
MATHIEU FOULIARD ABOUT THE DOLPHIN1 + SH FLIGHT ALU 60
When we first shaped the dolphin kiteboard a little over a year ago, we never imagined that today this same board could be used as a surffoil board. The design, the volume and the concave deck paired with the slow lift of the high flight foil make that combo ideal for flying above the ocean. The volume of the board allows for some early take off, while the concave deck makes for a comfortable and stable ride.
