This is a brand new Kona One
The Kona combines the best from the past and present with a lot of input from the classic longboard surf designs with its ability to ride soft, long waves in marginal conditions. Additionally, the planning threshold has been dramatically reduced by implementing a “step tail” which shortens the waterline when powered up, and boost the board on the plane much earlier than conventional longboards. This is a great next step for a person to take after their first lesson. You won't be bored with this board after a season. A very friendly and easy board to use with high performance as well.
And, if you are interested in racing, there is a very active Kona One-Design class here in the US with races all over the Midwest and East Coast. See konausa.org
