The Shinn ADHD Prismatic is Shinn's highest performance deck chosen by both competition freestylers and wake style purist alike. Stiff enough to perform yet comfortable enough to enjoy, Shinn have employed all the technology available to ensure the ADHD won’t hold your riding back.
Explosive grip and tones of pop are generated by the hard channels running through the centre of the board and into the often forgotten tip transition area of the tail. By overlapping the rail and tip channels the ADHD Prismatic reduces the energy sapping flex area located just behind the rider's rear foot ensuring it can handle high power levels with ease.
The central tail concave helps to lift the nose ideal when landing with commitment or simply when things don't go quite as planned. This Prismatic also features an increase in stiffness between your feet, a critical factor in control when landing a little hot and preventing rocker inversion and the subsequent tip strikes. A true high performance ride for both wakestyle or mega-loop riders the ADHD Prismatic retains the ease of use so vital in allowing you to unlock your full potential no matter the wind and water conditions you perform in.
The ADHD Prismatic is a true favourite of the pro-riders on the Shinn team and with a proven competition heritage let this board take your level as high as you dare no matter if your preferences are boots, straps, flat water, natural kickers or obstacles.
No spray, ever, no matter how choppy, no matter what your stance is, what your carving position, where you place your pads; it’s gone, completely. The ADHD has cured it using only limited rocker curve, so it’s still efficient with a wide windrange.
The flex, grip and ease of the ADHD makes it a total joy in chop. Whether you are riding in 6 metre kite conditions, the ADHD makes it easy, relaxed and fun.
It’s a board that you can push to the ragged edge of control, without ever feeling nervous or hesitant. The first thing to come unstuck is never your stance or balance!
Every twin suffers from back foot loading, but some twins have to be ridden with excessive back foot pressure, either to stop the nose from burying when things get out of shape, or to stop you getting spray in your face. The ADHD is a joy, it feels so solid underfoot that you can shift you weight around a great deal – even 50-50 when you are tired. Ride it hour after hour and your sessions will be so much fun!
The ability of the board to heel-side carve without losing speed makes it excellent for wake style pop, as well as having plenty of traditional pop. Hardcore freestyle is easily within it’s grasp but for everyone who does not spend half their session unhooked the ADHD is a far superior board for multidiscipline freestyle.
Choosing your board size:
Whilst many riders still look at the length of the board when choosing their size it's much more relevant to look at the width. The length of the board can be affected by the shaping of the tip and tail - which in reality plays no part in the performance of the board.
To clarify the situation further the difference in surface are between a 130 x 40 and a 130 x 42 is approximately 260cm2 whilst increasing the length of a 130 x 40 to 135 x 40 would give an increase in surface area of less than 200cm2 - nearly 25% less!
Footbed and Straps:
The connection between rider and board can make or break the quality of your ride. Of course they should look slick but only after the function is perfect.
Shinn Kiteboarding's deep section EVA cushioning ensures luxurious comfort even during the harshest landings, whilst a carefully placed section of memory foam adjusts the surface to the shape of your feet after only a couple of hours riding. Multi-position fixation points allow you to fine tune your stance to perfection. The Shinn footstrap has been shaped to provide maximum grip on your foot with minimal pressure points and complete ease of adjustability.
All Shinn twin tips are supplied with high visibility Nylon fins and deck protection plates. Shaped exclusively for Shinn (for unsurpassed durability), this 53mm shape provides exceptional grip for it's size whilst still offering great manoeuvrability.
Who is the board designed for:
For anyone with aggressive tendencies it’s so much fun. For the nervous it’s ideal, in truth this board is for everyone. Although the ADHD can be aggressive, it is NEVER difficult or uncomfortable.
