New for 2018, a true custom epoxy hand made kitesurf surfboard.
If you've never tried a true custom shaped pu surfboard then you are in for a treat, no production board will have the same feel as this.
Blast Kiteboarding have collaborated with legendary JP Surfboards to bring you a true custom surfboard built specifically for kitesurfing in our usual UK conditions....not some idilic south pacific peeling reef break.
We have a couple of demo JP customs available, this Flyboy shape is a board for all levels from beginner to the more advanced and made to shred in most conditions, i.e. onshore as well as the rare down the line days.
We can help with the shape or if you already have specific shape in mind we can do that too. Strapped or Strapless, cross off down the line or mushy small onshore, we can build a board to rip wherever you choose to ride! With a lifetime of surfing under his belt and being 4 X British Senior Champion Marc is extremely well placed to help you get the best performance board you could ever wish for!
Marc & Sarah recently testing both the Flyboy and Flyboy Pro's in Brazil........
The Standard JP kiteboard the “Flyboy” has a balanced rocker evolved from a surfboard but specific for kitesurfing – thin rails, decent concave in the hull, tucked under rails, reinforced deck, EPS blank, wooden stringer, carbon deck strip, FCS 2 fin boxes, and more volume just behind nose section to keep you planing through gybes or tacks. We reckon this one is a winner for messy on to cross onshore conditions and abroad so don’t just take our word for come down the beach and test one out NOW.
JP has been building surfboards for the last 29 years and he even built his own line of windsurf boards, Wave Graffti back in the day. John Purton who is the head shaper at JP has his own shaping machine (CNC) so accurate replicas of the perfect shape can be built each time. So if you want to scale a model for your weight and ability its pretty straight forward to do. The hard part is getting the shape right which is what we feel we have done with Neal, JP and other team riders .

The difference between a custom and production is a custom board should have all the extra performance once you have down the shape that works for you –the production version is often heavier and slightly more durable for dents but will often lack the edge on performance –every production that is made has been developed by custom boards first then put into production. Sometime production boards are 2 years in the making so the custom shape is developed and is now the latest cutting edge design.
You can customise your board with the following options:
Choose either Epoxy Carbon or Epoxy Inegra construction
Choose a tri fin setup or a 5 fin setup
Choose a strapless board or one with inserts added
Price is board, fins, rear deck pad only.
Front deck pad and foot strap inserts are extra, also custom graphics carbon inlays etc are also available.
Please note the board takes approx 3-4 weeks to produce, once ordered.

What a board . I bought this off Blast to replace my aged surfboard. It’s always a gamble when you are so used to a board but I wasn’t disappointed . The board is light and strong and does everything I could ask. It’s made locally so is a homegrown Welsh product from a shaper who has been in the business for 30 years at least .
The board is light, quick and the feedback is excellent . In addition the construction rally soaks up chop whiteout killing your knees . I really can’t recommend this board highly enough . I am extremely satisfied
