Guided tour at Lieuwe Boards in Rijswijk
Information Lieuwe Boards
Lieuwe Boards started shaping its own board at the beginning of this century, simply because there was no board that the maker Florian Lieuwe liked sailing. After years of building and testing, the perfect board was created and was launched in 2013. To this day, Lieuwe builds fully handcrafted, custom boards and strives for the best with every board!
Different Lieuwe boards
Lieuwe currently has 5 boards in production:
- Say No More
- Len10 ‘Oceana’
- Flying Dutchman
Each board has its specific riding characteristics and is unique. Unparalleled, because every board is made by hand. You read that correctly all boards are handmade, no mass production at Lieuwe Boards, but honest Dutch craftsmanship.
Awesome is a beginner / allround kiteboard. Ideal if you are just starting to sail. The board has just that little extra volume which increases your buoyancy. Awseome goes upwind quickly and feels super comfortable. It is also forgiving and you are not the first steering error in the water at first. So awesome!
Rogue is an intermediate Freeride board to take your kitesurfing level to a higher level. With this board you make progress in jumps and are forgiving at the landings by extra flex in the board.
Shotgun is a Big Air / Freeride board. The current shape of the Shotgun is the result of 3 years of testing, improving and testing. The board is created and shaped by a self-made machine and with the best materials available. I myself also own this ultimate kitesurf board and it is the best thing I have ever ridden. It transcends any (carbon) board from the more expensive segment. Also read my review comparing the Shotgun to the Core Fusion. The upwind properties are unprecedented, with a great grip and pop you jump higher, while the landings are nice and smooth. As far as I am concerned, the best kiteboard ever.
Lieuwe Say No More
Say No More is a real wakestyle board. This kite board stands out from other wakestyle boards because it is lighter than the competition. Say No More rides well upwind and is the next step in your wakestyle development.
Lieuwe Len10 Oceana
Lieuwe developed the Len10 ‘Oceana’ together with Ruben Lenten. A professional high performance all-round freestyle kiteboard. A homegrown ecoboard and created with Project Gold label.
Lieuwe Shotgun Carbonara
Lieuwe Shotgun Carbonara was co-developed by Gijs Wassenaar and made to jump high and make a lot of speed. The Carbonara is a Shotgun made of carbon, which makes the board a lot stiffer. The board also has more rocker than the Shotgun for soft landings.
Lieuwe Flying Dutchman
The first Directional of Lieuwe boards is a playful, stable and accessible board. This board is ideal for a light wind session and to master foiling.
Lieuwe boards come with their own artwork made by designers. If you have specific wishes for an artwork, please contact the men of Lieuwe directly, they can tell you everything that is possible, and that is a lot!
