The Kiteboarding wake style revolution is gaining momentum as unhooked tricks and sliders are becoming more popular. Many of the kiteboards remain heavy and tend to lack finesse. Xenon felt strongly that a technologically advanced board with durability and light weight performance was needed and made the HOP. Built for the rider in boots who can have the confidence that this board can withstand even the hardest crashes. With the 2016 Xenon HOP you can have one board to ride at the cable and kiteboarding, allowing you to push your progression even in no wind. The new HOP is stiffer and has square tips creating even bigger pop and better board feel but 20% lighter and still just as durable. If you love to ride cable or wakeboard the 2016 Xenon HOP is the kiteboard for you.
