|Kirk Thompson, RVL8’s true OG. For over a decade Kirk has been a rock in the sport of skiboarding. With his fluid style from a background in rollerblading, a glimpse of Kirk’s riding is unmistakably a moment of greatness. In the past Kirk’s graphics have taken you underwater, in mysterious places, and through the swamps of uncertainty and bio-combat. This year the KTP is taking you to a dangerous, deadly desert containing interesting graphical elements. Just like the rider they’re named after these boards will take all the abuse you can dish out and keep you powering through any conditions imaginable. Not a park rider? Doesn’t matter. The KTP’s beefy width and extra set of rear inserts will take you far out into the powder and crud of any mountain or have you carving trenches on the hardest hard pack. Whether it’s your thirst for adrenaline or a desire to cruise some white fluff, these boards have what you need. This new KTP graphic, as it’s been for the past 8 out of 9 KTP designs, was a collaboration between Kirk and Martin Azevedo Note: Due to it’s camber, stiffness and 12.5cm width underfoot the KTP is only recommended for aggressive, intermediate to advanced riders.

Jon Duenas –
Just started using my KTP’s after years of snowblades and I’ll say these are one of the only boards you need. Stiffness is there but not a problem, feels more like it lends itself to holding an edge really well. I feel very powerful but surprisingly mobile through moguls. They might not be dedicated powder skis but I was able to ride the pow. Boosting side hits and little bumps was easy and really fun. Going to switch from regular is effortless, feels like all I have to do is think when I want to switch. I can really bite down when I want, and lazily slide when I want. I’m very happy with how these boards behave.
