The 2018 Benchmark came from a new shape and design for Liquid Force, which works incredibly well for pretty much everything you can throw at it. From cruising to the freestyle tricks you can only dream of, the Benchmark will certainly not let you down. Designed for female riders by the ten time world champ, Gisela Pulido.
Stable and forgiving underfoot, it is also lightweight and perfectly balanced to throw around in the air for big air moves such as foot-outs and board-offs. It would, in fact, still be a great first board once you are up and riding. Though it has the obvious higher performance characteristics it does not ride too fast nor overly aggressively. It has been very clearly fine-tuned to the smallest possible degree for 10X Freestyle World Champ Gisela Pulido’s extraordinary kitesurfing skills and demands.
Medium-high rocker for solid pop off the water. Tips designed to reduce spray coming up choppy water. Stiffer middle section allows for forgiving landings.
The 2018 Benchmark is completely suitable for straps and boots.
Sizes: 130/40cm and 135/41cm
