The tables used surfboard in kitesurfing (kiteboarding) fall into two broad categories Single or double (twin-tip). A half-way between these two types are the so called Mutant, boards that combine characteristics of a group and the other but that are not widely used. In principle we can say that directional kite boards are used surfboard for surfing the waves, the speed or long distances while twintip kitesurfing boards are used surfboard mainly for freestyle. So like the sails, kite boards have also seen a remarkable evolution over the years involving both the shape (the shape) that the materials used. The very first boards were often surfboards or windsurfing re-adapted for use with kite sails. Quick measurement of kiteboards started to decline and have produced the first bi-directional kite boards (known precisely twintip) inspired by the wakeboard. In parallel, the building has evolved considerably. Around 2003 was introduced in the construction of the boards kitesurfing twintip the same technology used surfboard for the sandwich boards snowboard so accessible have become gradually more resistant, high performance . . Most boards now used surfboard in kitesurfing are just like "Twintip (bidirectional or simply bidi), ie tables symmetric (or almost) that allow you to go in both directions, without changing the foot as it happens in the tables executive after a change of direction. For this reason Twintip boards are not only used surfboard for freestyle moves, but also to learn and in general in most circumstances by the majority of riders . . Pad and straps are the equivalent of the attacks for snowboarding. Depending on the style or model of the table they may be very different, or even not there at all. Directional boards are often used surfboard without strap and ultimately inspired to some twintip skateboards have no strap. At the other extreme we have tables that mount wakeboard twintip-inspired attacks in which his foot slipped more stable. The twin tip generally have 4 fins of a measure that can vary between 3 and 7 cm. Directional boards instead usually have 3 or 4 fins long, usually about 6 - 10cm . . Other accessories often found on the handle twin tip boards at the center of the board which serves both to facilitate their transport to the execution of certain figures such as freestyle or onefoot nofoot. The leash of a table top that is used surfboard to connect the board to prevent the rider to lose when it falls. The problem after a fall the rider is usually pulled out from the sail, so the leash is a tendency and create a slingshot effect with the board that, almost inevitably going to hit the rider firmly in the part that emerges from the water ( because the rider's head and then dropped). Given the obvious dangers of using the leash and the incredible number of accidents with these modes the leash now almost completely abandoned (fortunately). Some survive leash blinds, with a mechanism that would avoid what the slingshot effect (but for the conditional obligation) e. The use of the leash is only necessary in some circumstances waves with a used surfboard strapless and this example when you have to ride very close to a reef or when very busy spot and a table that roams the sea can be a danger to others. . . .
