UNMATCHED CONTROL ON BIGGER AND STEEP WAVES WITH THE MOST RADICAL AND TIGHT BOTTOM TURNS.
Following the big success of the Stallion thanks to its incredible good performance all round and innovative construction, we still found the need to design a new shape inspired of the Stallion but specifically for bigger and steep waves. In this light the Stallion Overhead was born. After 18 months of R&D and trying many different shapes and board concepts we couldn’t be happier with the final result. The Stallion Overhead’s design offers unmatched control on the wave and the most radical and tight bottom turns.
Redistributed volume, more curved outline with a more narrow tail, more tail rocker and scoop in the nose sum up some of the differences with the Stallion. A completely new channel concept ensures the fast and controllable drive. The Stallion Overhead is the first noseless board in the market offering high performance in big waves and the ‘good’ days, completely compatible and not overlapping in a quiver with the Stallion.
What is unique in Stallion Overhead is the mix of conceptual paths the water can flow which does make it plane early, ride fast, turn tight and be completely drag free. There is a precise formula of fin placement, width and channel dispersion, which makes the Stallion boards the best kitesurfing boards on the market today. When the waves get bigger and steep huge sensation is guaranteed, this is the board you want to be on.

The construction is the same winning concept as the Stallion V2.
The manufacturing of the board is in Europe at the board factory Apple Tree, who are constantly pushing and developing innovative kiteboard construction technologies. A unique construction with Hexcore technology was developed to ensure the lightest and very durable boards available on the market today.
The closed cell tech with XPS foam, of which the boards are made is like EPS so it only works with epoxy resin. But it is different in the way it does not contain the beads that EPS has, That’s why they call it closed foam, it means it’s completely waterproof! So no worries when you ding the board. just keep kiting and fix it later. XPS is notoriously hard to laminate, but our fusion tech makes it possible! The core is fused with the skin, this gives an optimal bond between skin and core, virtually eliminating de-lamination.
Hexcore are strategically placed patches that provide a durable platform for your feet. These patches are made from a super high strength PET honeycomb foam that is radically different from any other honeycomb on the market today. The honeycomb is set into the deck of the board, it doesn’t just sit on top of the foam. The patches are sandwiched between fiberglass layers, together they form a very dent resistant layer and prevent the deck under your feet from denting marks.
The bottom of the board is relatively soft with good flex, offering comfort and high performance in the waves. Strenght on deck, flex on the bottom: this is the best of both kite and surfing worlds.
To counter the strength of the Hex Fusion on the deck and to further control the flex of the board, we designed the U- stringer. The U-stringer consists of a high density foam insert wrapped in fiberglass. This stringer acts as a spring rod and runs only in the middle of the board, leaving the tail and nose to freely flex. The u-flex stringer is covered with a thin layer of unidirectional carbon fibre, to further control flex.
The boards are glassed in clear epoxy so you can look directly inside the board, we have nothing to hide under layers op paint! The color on the boards come from tint in the resin itself, it’s transparent and will never fade.
You cannot compare the shape of the Stallion Overhead with a traditional surfboard, we recommend to ride it between 4′′ and 6′′ shorter then a directional. Comparing to the Stallion, we recommend to size up 1 size, egà when riding Stallion 5’2, go for the Stallion Overhead 5’4.
