REAL designed the MTB with Maurice Cole in an effort to make a kite surfboard for your everyday kiter. We tested out some of Maurice's Metro surfboard designs, and we were blown away by the super deep concave and hard rail to the nose. These design features made the Metro really fast down the line with a lot of grip. Maurice also has a lot of experience designing tow board for chargers like Ross Clarke Jones. We merged the concepts of his tow boards and the Metro, and we came up with a kite surfboard that is totally unique.

Maurice Cole MTB Tech Specs:
• HydroFlex XXX construction
• EFC Waterproof triple stringer blank
• Inserts for foot straps
• Futures Tri-Fin (fins not included)

What we like:
The MTB looks crazy with the super deep concave, hard rails and "SWAT" tail. The net results of these design features translate into this board motoring through chop. Our first ride we could not believe how smooth through the chop this board was, how fast it was and how well it went upwind. Someone even said that they felt the MTB went upwind better than the Spleene Door.

The MTB was designed for your everyday kitesurfer that wants to ride a kite surfboard in flat water and the waves. Is this your first kite surfboard? The MTB will be right for you. The control at all speeds and smooth ride through the chop makes the MTB allows everyone to immediately enjoy it.

The theory behind the construction was to create something that was really strong, lightweight, has flex and will feel alive under your feet. Starting with the triple stringered, waterproof EFC blank was an expensive choice but the net result was that it had everything we were looking for. (The EFC blank also makes the MTB a great travel board since it won’t take on water immediately when dinged.) Compared to the rest of the production boards on the market, the MTB feels alive under your feet and ultra smooth through the water.

Insider info:
We recommend going one fin size smaller than what you would normally use. If you are 175lbs or smaller than go for the Futures AM-3(Small Size). If you are bigger than 175lbs then get the AM-1(Medium Size). With the hard rails and deep concave, the board already has a lot of drive and grip. Riding too large of a fin will make this board go upwind amazingly well but it also makes the board a lot stiffer in the turns, especially cutbacks off the top of waves.

The MTB likes to have your front foot forward. If your front foot is too far back, then the board wants to pop a wheelie. By keeping your front foot over the forward inserts, the MTB lays down and gets to work motoring through chop. The wider the stance on this board, the better. Put your foot all the way on the kick tail pad to get the MTB to drive off the bottom and complete your turn off the top.

The reason that the MTB works so well for a large range in waves, beginners, and general freeride kitesurfing is that it has a flatter rocker, thinner rail and way more concave than any kite surfboards out there. The only place we found this to be an issue was trying to super vertical, in the pocket, on steep hollow waves. In those conditions, a board with more rocker, less concave and softer rails will do the tighter radius turn that those conditions require. Most people don't kite those conditions, so we feel that the MTB will be really nicely suited for most kite surfers.

Why you want a Maurice Cole MTB:
Riding strapped or strapless in flat water or surf is awesome. Doing that with a board that is controllable in any conditions, has flex and works for any ability level is that much better. We were looking for a high quality construction kite surfboard for the every day kiteboarder and the Maurice Cole MTB fits the bill.
