Here at Boylos we are super stoked to be stocking the complete RRD watersports range, from windsurf boards, to kites and stand up paddle boards. Not only are RRD at the forefront of watersports technology, but their equipment is high quality and designed not only to perform, but to last.
Roberto Ricci Designs- The Brand Behind the Boards
Established in Italy in the 1980s RRD began with professional windsurfer Roberto Ricci himself, designing and shaping windsurf boards. From it’s humble beginnings it has grown into the international company it is today, producing a huge range of equipment from stand up paddle boards to windsurf boards and sails.
The ethos behind RRD has always been to combine homemade Italian craftsmanship with the Hawaiian roots of shaping with aesthetic design. To create products that look fantastic, whilst providing optimum performance and incorporating the essence of their Italian heritage.
One aspect of this company, which is different from some of the other known brands, is their conscious decision not to constantly produce brand new boards but to always be improving and updating their current lines so they are always at the forefront of whats new.

Bliss V5 Kiteboard- £583- £668
Another of our favourite products from RRD is the Bliss V5 Kiteboard, available in Bliss Wood or LTD. This is a progressive freeride/freestyle board perfect for an assortment of conditions. It’s overwhelming popularity makes it one of RRD’s most sought after twin tip boards, and it’s not difficult to see why.
It’s LTD version is constructed from Biaxial Carbon layers on the top and bottom of the board with a special mix of Paulownia and lighter weight wood and CNC shaped core. This makes it 20% lighter, thinner and more responsive. The wood version of the board has deeper bottom channels and the thin, slightly rounded ABS sidewalls enable this board to carve with style through rougher conditions. This board not only provides security but also strength and durability. The awesome Bliss Kiss is also constructed from wood with a funky pink/purple finish.
These are just a select couple from a huge list of our RRD favourites. In truth, you cannot go wrong with their products and that’s why we are such fans! Have a look on our website for a full range of different equipment and accessories with more being uploaded every week!
