Spleene are a German brand founded by Rainer Kauper . Rainer began designing kite boards in 1999 after seeing kitesurfers in Cabaret. Drawing on a wealth of knowledge of water craft and wind gained from years of experience as a world class sailor, sponsored windsurfer, and a para glider he began making boards for friends, and in 2002 Spleene was born.
The company most famous in the UK for the Door ( which is still in production today), are now on their Fourth generation of the all terrain kite the SPX and have recently brought out a new freeride kite the QX.
