Founded in 2005, Shinn is the creation of multiple time World Kiteboarding Champion Mark Shinn. A product of the first Generation of kiteboarding Mark was at the front of multiple style and riding discipline changes with the constant shifts building and enhancing his feel and expectations of what his equipment should be capable of.
Born upon his retirement from competitive riding, Shinn represents a passion for the creation of extremely high quality, innovative kiteboards and more recently Hydrofoils.
We pride ourselves with an almost obsessive attention to detail with a never ending goal of improving performance and usability at the same time.
No matter your riding ambitions or level, all riders are continuously learning. Here at Shinn everything we do is designed to make your journey more comfortable and more rewarding (and maybe just a little bit quicker!).
