The Influence is a complete new board designs offered for the 2009 line. To create the Influence, Jimmy Redmon teamed up with LF team rider Jason Slezak. Their goal was to create a completely new board that would ultimately be the predecessor to Jason's current pro model the "Mission". Jimmy, utilizing his knowledge gained from past years of building ABS sandwich construction boards, has advanced the technology in Slezak's pro model one step further. The design platform of the Influence brings with it more detailed features than ever before; a variable edge rail (similar to the Mission), contoured multi channeled bottom shape, compression molded top deck contours, and a kite specific flex pattern. This board is equally at home throwing down fast powered tricks, landing big airs, hitting sliders, or slashing turns in the surf. The 2009 Influence is the future of kiteboard technology and the future is now!
