Endless freeride possibilities

The Process is our top-selling freeride board thanks to its unique features that spark its popularity. Shaped with the latest high-tech materials, the Process delivers optimum freeride performance that makes all conditions fun.

Grip and control

Easy to use with Plug-and-Play features, the Process provides grip in strong gusts, early planing in light winds, and cushions the most vicious chop. The channel depth and layout are designed to add significantly more grip and control when carving, and more bite when popping.

Superior carving

The Parabolic Rail Shape (PRS) allows for thinner rails to be in contact with the water which aids superior carving, improving upwind ability.
Chop and spray are cut through with ease making the Process ultra playful and dynamic to ride.

Medium flex for comfort

To ensure freeride comfort in any condition, the Fly 3D Paulownia wood core is thin, lightweight and reinforced with a carbon stringer for enhanced flex to give smooth landings. The unique flex pattern is adapted for each size to add more comfort for the knees, and the ABS rail material enhances impact resistance too.

New for V8

Standing out with fresh new graphics, the Process V8 also has a reduced ecological footprint. Designed using GreenPoxy bio-resin, new plant-based materials have been sustainably sourced and additionally provide greater durability. V8 not only has lower carbon content but increased longevity too, and the plastic-free packaging helps to limit our environmental impact.

Who is it for?

Progressing riders will find the Process extremely fun to ride and easy to control. No matter the spot, freeriders will love how it cruises at any level in any condition. Accessible to everyone, seasoned kiters can release the edge and it’ll equally satisfy those who want to go big.

Technical Specifications

  • Medium 3 stage rocker
  • Early planing
  • Superb upwind ability

The Process is designed with a medium rocker to support the pop and release when initiating tricks and to plane very early for outstanding upwind riding ability.

  • Optimized flex pattern for each size
  • Well balanced between comfort and performance
  • Harder reverse flex for better carving and landing

The Process comes with a very balanced flex pattern that combines comfort and performance. To enhance the experience of smooth carves and increase comfort during hard landings, we added a hard reverse flex. Each board size is optimised individually for flex.

  • Elliptic outline with rounded tips
  • Less water splash
  • Outstanding carving ability
  • Parabolic Rail Shape (PRS) for more grip upwind abilities

The Process carves exceptionally well thanks to the elliptical outline and rounded tips. Improved grip and ease of upwind travel are also achieved by the parabolic rail shape, and spray is redirected away from the rider.

  • Single concave with tip channels
  • Railsteps for more grip
  • Less drag and more lift for early planing

To ensure early planing while also providing plenty of grip, we designed the Process with a single concave. The bottom also features channels at the tips as well as rail steps.
