WRV made them for Best back in 2015? I think.

New for 2015, Best Kiteboarding is releasing a custom line of hand-shaped surfboards made right here in the USA. Over the past year, Best Kiteboarding has been working with Wave Riding Vehicles (WRV) to produce the ultimate kite surfboard.
Per Best Kiteboarding,
"We're very proud of these boards and can honestly tell you that they are the highest performance boards on the market. We've been working for over a year with one of the best surfboard shapers in America; the best production facility on the East Coast, Wave Riding Vehicles (WRV); and sourced the best materials on the market. All to create a product line that is insanely light, incredibly strong, and produced two shapes that work insanely well for almost any rider in nearly any condition.
On top of all that, these boards are hand crafted. I've worked alongside our shaper and the WRV Production manager through testing, development, to final production. These boards have been tested in Cape Hatteras hollow barrels, Cape Town triple overhead, the Dominican Republic washing machine surf, and even back to the flat-water sound in the Outer Banks. We know that you will love these boards for your personal sessions... and that your customers will love them for their sessions as well. One thing to note is that these boards are designed and meant to be ridden strapless. As such, they have no inserts in the top deck. If you would like to ride the board strapped, we suggest the stick-on Pad & Strap Kit from Surftech.
A few bits of info, the top deck is the Innegra S-glass material. S-glass is used in ballistics and marine engineering and is known for being incredibly lightweight and also puncture resistant (dare I say "proof"). The boards also use a tinted HD Blank... these blanks resist fading (breakdown) from UV light and help to make the board incredibly strong and heal ding resistant, while still maintaining flex."
