For 2020 Shinn have taken the truly remarkable award winning Monk and changed it.The Goal? To maintain the characteristics the Monk has become famous for –unbelievable chop handling, amazing carvingand anoutstandingly comfy ride –and add even more grip, rip and slash to the mix.
Normal channels create drag by redirecting the water traveling across the board. On the Glitch Shinn maximised the efficiency by encouraging the flow through the critical areas rather than forcibly redirecting it. All the while paying close attention to the dynamic flex profile ensuring that the comfort and control elements are not sacrificed.
How does it compare to the Monks that came before? More grip, more drive and more POP yet softer landings, same comfort and same chop handling.
Outstanding through all varieties of conditions -theMonk Glitch, how much more fun can you have?

Comfort, Control and Protection – the product of more than 18 months of R and D and 20 years of riding the all new Sneaker HMT (Hold Me Tight) breaks new grounds in adjustability, security and performance. We’ve combined all our lessons from more than 20 years of kiteboarding keeping the features we love and innovating solutions for areas we felt needed improving. Designed to fit every foot and riding stance to perfection, the Sneaker HMT is probably be the best rider/deck connection system yet
It’s always a challenge to create a strap and pad combo that can be adapted to the needs and size of every rider. So this year Shinn has given up the fight, say hello to the Sneaker SRSW. Based on the highly popular Sneaker SRS theSRSW has been modified to provide a better fit for riders with a foot of up to euro size 41. With no fiddly webbing the SRSW relies on a time proven ratchet system providing a set and forget convenience to strap adjustment with easily regulated micro adjustments possible to make even when on the fly.
You want comfort, adjustability, secure connection and light-weight all in one package. The Sneaker 6 delivers them all. Shinn stepped up to the plate keeping all your favourite features in a classic Velcro set-up yet tweaked the areas we felt needed it. The timeless velcro system allows for a huge adjustment range yet still makes micro adjustments a breeze. The 3D heel cupping ensures the pad is perfect for every foot no matter the shape and size.
