This shape is very friendly and easy to ride either as a surfboard for mushy waves, or as your everyday foil board. The new C.O.T.A.N. FLIGHT is the ideal traveling companion. If you want an easy to travel surfboard and a foilboard combined into one board, this is the best choice on the market today.

With its very efficient and all around shape combined with the solid tough and light construction the COTAN FLIGHT is the perfect board to stop worrying about missing a session without loading your quiver. Equipped with 4 x M8 screw inserts, this is a fantastic all-in 1 board. The compact dimensions, parallel outline and thin rails of the board make its shape a perfect match as a surf or as a foil board

Why we call it C.O.T.A.N.? It is the acronymous of Cut Off Tail And Nose!

The C.O.T.A.N. shape will allow you to feel exceptionally free and fast in everything you do, whether you are hitting medium size waves or having fun with freestyle tricks, the compact shape of the C.O.T.A.N. is perfect to lead you through your freestyle strapless progression. Since last year the tail shape has been re-designed with swallow winger ends, allowing more aggressive turns when riding waves, or when pushing to get the maximum pop. Basically when we designed this board, the goal was to reduce drag and increase speed. Try it!
Available only in Pro construction

This iconic shape remains a small to midsize surf reference for any serious kiter. Low rocker for speed and early take off, a wide tail to create lift, speed and projection. The unique sharp square tail, the wider nose with slightly fuller rails provide ultimate control as well as quick turns. Even though slightly wider, the tail is still loose enough to fit into any pocket of waist to head hi-waves.
