– outstanding upwind riding
– best comfort
– easy handling
Since our introduction of the Door shape in 2002, we increased the number of kiteboarding days for countless riders. But the development never stopped. With the latest Spleene Doors, we offer two boards, which not only show maximum planing performance in low wind, but also do not need to hide behind any smaller freerider.
Its focus field lightwind masters the Door with its concave outline. The surface is perfectly distributed and allows easiest handling with every kiteboarding experience level.
Going upwind with a Door is a piece of cake. The concave increases the waterway and the Doors move by themselves towards the wind.
In freeride, the Door carves wonderfully through the water. The Advanced Jet Bottom supports with very good guidance and allows to switch the board, for its size, fantastically easy. Chop water is nicely absorbed by the bottom shape and in combination with its flex, the Doors show great comfort.
Also flying high is not prevented by the Door shape. Kite powered, the Door will easily launch off the water. And with some pressure, the big shape will edge deep into the water and release an impressive pop.
The Spleene Doors of the latest generation are our best boards for lightwind kiteboarding. The Door 59 is recommended to every rider up to 85kg or everyone who wants to ride the door also in stronger winds. The Monster Door is for heavier or large riders or everyone who wants to get the maximum ultra lightwind performance.
For Beginners, the Doors are a very strong recommendation. They allow the quickest success and learning progress of all boards. And with increased experience, they still serve as perfect lightwind boards.
“Lightwind performance on the highest level, mixed with best comfort and an absolute easy handling.”

Overview on main characteristics
Extreme lightwind performanceThe Door 59 and the Monster Door are pure lightwind and ultra-lightwind boards, showing in this discipline their full power. The concave outline, the large surface as well as the low scoop line get the board plane as early as possible, while others wait for wind on the beach. Also wind lulls won’t put a Door into trouble, they simply keep planing.
Large wind rangeLightwind and ultra lightwind are the major purpose of the Doors, where they undisputedly shine. But thanks to their easy handling and good control, they can be kept ridden without a problem, when wind gets stronger.
Unbeaten upwind performanceThe concave outline and the low scoop line allow fantastic upwind performance. The board will point windward by itself and with minimal effort the Door will eat its way towards the wind. The upwind performance is the strongest in our High Tech Line lineup.
Best comfortAs with all High Tech Line boards, comfort is one of its major characteristics. Thanks to the flex and Advanced Jet Bottom, bumps of chop water will be absorbed and it planes smoothly through very rough water. Additionally course and speed can be kept constantly up.
No SprayWith our long experience in Door shapes, we could totally eliminate spray water. In this point, we are a big step ahead of most lightwind boards on the market and Spleene riders stay dry, also in chop water. The rails of the Door in combination with the concave outline is the secret.
Easiest handling for beginnersThe very easy handling and the outstanding control of the Doors offer Beginners and Intermediates the best basis for quick progress. From the first meters planing to a perfectly carved jibe, the Spleene Door is the best board you can get for this job.
Less weight at tipsThe tips of the latest Door generation are further improved and now shaped thinner. The reduction of weight at this section significantly lowers the inertia while turning and jumping. The board is more alive and loose.
New graphicAs all boards from the High Tech Line, the Door 59 and the Monster Door come with a new design. The colour contrast makes it easy to find your board in waves or complex lighting conditions.

Advanced Jet BottomThis Shape-Detail describes a double concave channel on the base side of the board. It allows the board to plane more freely and earlier. The profile of the double concave is not a simple radius. The Spleene developed Advanced Jet Bottom has a parabolic shape. Compared to a normal double concave the Advanced Jet Bottom provides significantly more “edge bite” as it channels the waterflow along its edges. Especially in choppy conditions the difference is very noticeable. When landing the water surface will be broken up by the bottom of the board and allows a smooth landing.
Beveled RailA slightly lift edgewise at the base side which generates a lot more comfort. Riders benefit from this shape especially in choppy conditions.
Concave OutlineThe concave outline is responsible for the extreme upwind performance of the Doors. The waterway is longer and it creates less drift. Additionally the flex of the board forms a geometry, which keeps the Doors constantly upwind.
Stepless 3D DeckStepless 3D-Shape on top side. All transitions are without any step. This results simultaneously in a clear reduction of weight.
Wood-CoreAll Spleene High Tech Line boards are produced with a form-glued, CNC-milled woodcore.
