All started in 1999 when I decided to work for a shaper in Tarifa. It was the very beginning of kitesurfing and I was eager to work behind the scenes and learn how to build my own kiteboards. In 2006 I decided to start Blankforce as a very small custom production to cover the needs of some schools in Germany and the Netherlands. Since then we have created new models every year and each model has been designed to be very specific to a riding style. Each style requires some unique attributes which are translated into construction techniques with variations in flex, shape, rocker, and the choice of materials.
Once a certain model is released we incorporate feedback from our customers and riders to evolve that model. That’s why we talk about generations of boards. For example, MK3 is our third generation of carbon boards. It inherits the carbon construction know-how of past models but we introduced a completely new material (unidirectional carbon fiber), which is still unique in the kiteboarding industry. By producing exclusively in Europe we are able to fine-tune the existing models on a continuous basis. We work together with our partners to offer high quality products and responsive service. In 2011 we started to go international and our products are now available worldwide. In 2013 we decided to move the company to Barcelona, Spain. Our small no- name brand created eight years ago is, through constant growth, now taking its place in the actual kitesurfing scene. WAKEBOARDS AND KITEBOARDS ARRIVED!
