Downwind speed with a dash of freeride!
The Techno 118 is the most slalom-oriented board in the Techno range. That doesn’t mean it lacks versatility. In fact it’s the ideal choice if you just want one board to ride in a maximum variety of conditions. It has just enough volume to allow you to carry larger sails up to 8.5m², but is really at home in medium to strong winds and sails between 5.5 and 6.5m².
Fast up to planing, comfortable under your feet, this is a board for long sweeping runs. It is a steady, smooth board that accelerates hard and has excellent downwind performance. On the corners, the Techno 118 gives you smooth fast turns for your gybes and powers up quickly again afterwards. A great board for medium to strong winds.
