Magic Ride

Since its dawn this line is a magic blend of ease, stability and good performance. While the originals focused on ease, the second generation turned out livelier and agile. The shape adjustments of the current, 3rd generation feature significantly improved control at speed and in chop.
Consequently, these boards ride smoother and gybe more willingly and easily into and through turns. On the water the boards surprise with a sporty and energetic character which is incredibly easy to handle. The magic of these boards pushes the performance and fun factor to the next level.

Jules Denel: “The Magic Ride is so easy to sail and gybe, it’s the perfect cruising board!”

 

Shape Details

You will be stunned by the light and easy handling when blasting along.

  • Still based on a thin and wide platform with adjusted proportions.
  • Slightly narrower at the centre and longer -> the stretched-out waterline makes early planing easier and lifts the board effortlessly onto the plane. It provides the rider more directional stability at speed and more upwind power
  • Even volume distribution keeps the centre of gravity close to the mast base
  • Wide nose makes it a more stable platform when non-planing.
  • Wide tail outline -> offers great release, reduces drag and improves high wind control.
  • Increased V-flow underneath for a more comfortable ride, improved gybing and an exciting lively feel
  • Smooth deck shape guarantees a comfortable stance in every foot strap option
  • Easy entering into the straps
  • Good leverage to load up the fin

The true freerider: What is astonishing about this board line is its ease and smoothness. You’ll step on it and everything will happen naturally and predictably. The feel is “familiar” – like putting on an old pair of shoes: It just fits! Relaxed and confident you’ll achieve more speed now than on ordinary freeride boards before. Despite these easy-riding characteristics, performance and agility are not compromised. The hull feels quick, lively and responsive. Planing readily, it provides traction which inspires you to push your fun and adrenaline and lets the board fly on its fin – in control!

Master of the turn: It feels effortless and refined even in challenging sea states. Still featuring the respected “autopilot qualities”, the MR requires little input from the rider and its forgiveness will pamper the intermediate rider and up his success rate of gybes.
At the same time its rail bite will encourage the more advanced rider to push harder and corner with full dedication: Tighter and tighter turns, classic freestyle like duck gybes and carving 360s will be the name of the game. It’s never been easier to enter the turn at speed, plane through or to learn and to master any kind of gybe.

Magic Ride  159: Longer than the other sizes, it is stable and accessible and thus the perfect board for anyone stepping down from a beginner board with daggerboard. It is specially tuned for easy, early planing! Experiencing the planing sensation and getting hooked on the feeling happens naturally.

A new epitome of freeriding: A state of the art synergy between easy handling and performance. This manoeuvre-oriented freeride board upped its overall ease and performance in all conditions. The ease, smoothness, forgiveness and control enable new performance levels and improve everyone’s riding fun.
If it’s about freeriding, then here is the MAGIC!

Reinforced, stronger box construction for Foil-Tuttlebox & Foil-Powerbox

Foil-Tuttlebox: big recess on the deck and big washers: The 2020 Foil-Tuttlebox boards came with a big recess and washer only for the rear Tuttlebox screw. For 2021, all Tuttle Foil boards feature boxes with 40 mm recess (front and back hole) and a 35 mm washer for extra support and to spread the force while foiling and for better handling.
