The Kiteboarder Magazine and ASnews.net podcast interviews legendary wake and kiteboard shapers Jimmy Redmon.
Since the beginning, Liquid Force has always had an extensive board line and 2009 is no different! With 12 twin tip and kite-specific surfboards in the line up, you won’t want to miss this informational interview. What changed and what didn’t? What’s new? What new construction techniques are being used? What board is best for a beginner, wakestyle rider, light wind slop surfer or all around rider?
Jimmy Redmon has shaped, produced and sold more boards than probably anyone currently developing twin tip boards for kiteboarding. Starting by shaping some of the first wakeboards over 22 years ago, Jimmy has been on the cutting edge of RELENTLESS Innovation ever since.
With over 75 boards in the Liquid Force Wakeboard Lineup and 28 different boards in the 2009 Liquid Force Kiteboards Lineup, it is fair to say that Jimmy Redmon has learned a few things about what works, doesn't and what makes LF boards the most fun to ride. This experience allows Jimmy to work directly with our LF Kite Team and riders like Jason Slezak, Moe Goold, Mauricio Abreu, etc, but also top LF wakeboarders like Shane Bonifay and Shawn Watson. Jimmy's experience and shaping allows him to translate these rider's dreams and desires into foam and glass, becoming the tool to provide that ultimate feeling that the rider was dreaming of.
Listen to Jimmy speak about how wake and kite board design cross pollinates from one to another, sharing both design features, bottom shapes and constructions, always RELENTLESS in innovation, redefining fun and what's possible.
