2017 Kapua Strapless
Program: Strapless All-Round
Born from the desire for a feather weight surfboard that can stand up to the punishment of kiting. In an industry first we built this board using a high performance polypropylene fibre called InnegraTech which has outstanding impact and compressive strength properties. This results in a surfboard that is strong but light, so light that we named it ‘Kapua’, a Maori word meaning cloud.
Each board is hand laminated with pigmented epoxy resin, so no two boards will ever look exactly the same. The Kapua also features a carbon fibre patch to further reduce compression under your front foot, which we’ve covered with a trippy white pattern to stop the black carbon melting your wax on a sunny day. Our global surf team have been testing, tuning, breaking and refining this family of shapes until we can’t think of anything left to improve.
Wax it up or fit our optional front deck grip. Whatever floats your boat. Each board comes fitted with an AXIS tail pad and a set of Futures fins.
If strapless kite surfing is your thing, we designed the AXIS Kapua range to be the best thing you can put between your feet and the water.
