Race boards are specifically designed for kite course racing, and excel in upwind and downwind/reaching speed. Race boards can be hand made to order. The rocker, board outline, volume displacement, foot strap and fin positions are all designed for one purpose – upwind/downwind speed.

Dedicated race boards can be difficult and technical to ride, but they are the fastest option for general riding.

In 2021, most kite racing is now done on foil boards
