Maximum fun, minimum wind. Bernhard is a new model and a new category for Shinn and has only one mission – increasing your days on the water with amazing power efficiency and unbelievable upwind ability whilst all the time keeping your riding fun.



Kiteboarding is fun and more kiteboarding is better than less kiteboarding. We don’t all have the luxury of perfect conditions when we have the oppurtunity to ride – it’s not all about
megaloops and handle passes, the unexpected days of lightwind cruising are often just as enjoyable as their windier counterparts. This is a board unashamedly directed towards those previously frustrating days were your freestyle model just won’t come to life.
Using an adaptation of our Split Concave base Bernhard provides an exceptionally early planning, smooth and comfortable ride with upwind performance that will surprise and delight. The Bilateral flex tips iron out the chop and enhance grip when the wind starts to fill in.
Playful and forgiving with sublime handling and superb comfort, designed for the pure love of kiteboarding, Bernhard is set to become an instant classic
