Mai sentita così bene (I canguri) (Italian Edition)
The last couple of issues of the mag have seen some pretty impressive waveriding going on with the Duotone wave team. They tend to mix it up with their board selection, but when conditions are peachy and they want a board they can really get expressive on, they tend to go for this one: the Pro Wam. The Duke takes the thicker concave from the Mako and gives it a directional twist. Are there any better designed twintip collections in the industry?
For they bring us the Cosmic Line with a spacey theme. Pictured here is the NHP Carbon but, yup, they all look this good.

The 4-point connection allows incremental tweaks across the whole binding so you can set them up to fit your feet perfectly. Questo ha aperto una finestra per fare un viaggio in un luogo a mia scelta. Volevo cavalcare onde. Ho quindi contattato Cat, che era entusiasta di unirsi al viaggio anche se non sapeva dove stessimo andando!
Catharina: era la fine di Luglio e avevamo appena scoperto che la gara alle Mauritius era stata cancellata. Jalou mi aveva chiesto se ero disposta a fare un viaggio con il kite. La mia mente ha iniziato a girare e non riuscivo a togliermi quella parola dalla testa. Sarei stato in grado di ottenere un tubo?
Sarei stata pronta? Un paio di giorni dopo stavo scorrendo il feed di Instagram e ho visto che Jalou aveva pubblicato una story che era in Indonesia e Catharina stava arrivando. Tornata a guardare la mappa della Surfline mi sono resa conto che sarei dovuta partire la mattina seguente per non perdere la finestra. Ho inviato messaggi a Cat e lei mi ha dato ogni dettaglio su quale volo prendere e dove alloggiare. Un gruppo fantastico e buone condizioni avrebbe portato un sacco di contenuti pazzeschi. Dopo aver fatto foto per gli Air Games in Germania, non ho nemmeno dovuto disfare i bagagli mentre volavo dritto in Indonesia per incontrare le ragazze.
Era la quarta volta che visitavo quel posto unico. Il posto non era cambiato molto dalla mia ultima visita. Ad esempio, uno dei fotografi locali di nome Mammet aveva venduto la sua macchina fotografica un paio di anni prima per aprire un ristorante con la sua famiglia. Immagini scattate molti anni fa da Keahi, Reo, Kevin e me sono appese alle sue pareti. Nei primi giorni non riuscivo a smettere di sorridere. Siamo saliti sui nostri motorini e abbiamo guidato per cinque minuti lungo la costa. Stavano arrivando onde enormi e il vento stava aumentando. Ho visto il sangue gocciolare dalla mia gamba, ma per fortuna era solo un piccolo taglio.
Fu a quel punto che mi sono resa conto che i giorni prima non ero posizionata nel posto giusto sbagliando tutto. Ho dovuto trovare la mia posizione tra le onde che era una cosa impegnativa in quanto le onde erano molto imprevedibili nei primi giorni. Nel corso del tempo sono migliorato nel posizionarmi. C: Dopo il giorno delle grandi onde, la mia fiducia era al settimo cielo mentre camminavo verso la spiaggia. Alcune avevano grandi tubi divisi in diverse sezioni. Ho pensato ai video che avevo guardato e ai pochi suggerimenti che avevo ricevuto prima di uscire.
I miei nervi iniziarono a calmarsi. Prima di pensarci due volte, ho rilasciato il tutto e Jalou mi ha aiutato a raggiungere la riva. Anche il livello delle ragazze era molto diverso. Jalou ha un sacco di esperienza, Olivia non pensa alla paura e Catharina ha una spinta incredibile per entrare in acqua e migliorare. Le ragazze si danno consigli e parlano delle loro paure e dei loro obiettivi. Inoltre, non si trattava solo di azione in acqua durante questo viaggio. Durante gli scatti di lifestyle capisco che sono in viaggio con solo ragazze. Non appena iniziano a parlare, non si fermano. Aveva solo bisogno di un rider - e chi meglio di Aaron Hadlow?!
Qui Laci ci guida attraverso la filosofia del progetto e ci spiega a che punto sono Ho realizzato video di kiteboarding per oltre 10 anni per vari riders e centri di kite. Tutti i formati Internet hanno uno svantaggio: sono veloci. A volte ci sono meravigliose clip al rallentatore che durano 30 secondi, e invece di tagliarle, ora possiamo lasciarle correre. Ma non aspettarti che il film sia una raccolta di scatti slow-motion, piuttosto qualcosa che inviti a sederti e a goderti lo spettacolo In parole semplici: si tratta del kiteboarding e delle sue varie discipline, tutte proiettate sulla lunga carriera professionale di Aaron.
Chi Chi meglio di Aaron, che ha avuto una tale influenza sullo sport nel corso degli anni?! Se parliamo di Park, andiamo nel migliore parco per kite a Cape Hatteras. Oltre a lui, vedrai alcuni dei suoi amici e alcuni dei migliori rider per ogni disciplina. This place is not only the obvious choice for Big Air kiteboarders from all around the. Abbiamo trascorso un mese qui, non solo a filmare megaloops di fronte a Table Mountain, ma anche viaggiando in luoghi diversi, facendo kite insieme al padre di Aaron, Ian o facendo interviste con i suoi amici.
Il clou deve essere stato il nuovo trick di Aaron durante il King of The Air - un megaloop board-off con frontroll. Fortunatamente la mia macchina fotografica era pronta e Aaron era a fuoco! Eravamo da soli sulla barca senza distrazioni, concentrati solo su come registrare le scene migliori. PARK USA Mentre stavo lavorando su questo progetto, sono riuscito a vedere molti posti interessanti che non sarei riuscito a visitare altrimenti. In totale abbiamo trascorso qui circa tre settimane, finendo con il Triple-S in cui le riprese per il film erano limitate. Ho usato molto il gimbal, quindi non vedremo le clip traballanti a cui siamo abituati nel park normali.
UK Ad agosto, quando la maggior parte dei kiters europei viaggiava verso sud per il caldo e il vento, noi siamo andati nella direzione contraria e abbiamo visitato la casa di Aaron in Inghilterra. E adesso dovrete solo aspettare per vedere il finale Il giornalista australiano Ollie Jacobs indaga You better run, you better take cover, yeah Controllato il saldo bancario? Hai ferie dal lavoro? Ahhh non importa, basta smettere e trovare un nuovo lavoro al ritorno. Segui il sole, insegui il vento, trova i tuoi sogni. Quindi, con questo atteggiamento, ero diretto per un altro viaggio verso le Mauritius.
La Mecca del kitesurf ha tutto: acqua calda, onde incredibili, vento, vita notturna e tutto dai resort a 5 stelle alle capanne nella giungla. Viaggiando con il mio amico e amico fotografo Brenton Owens, eravamo eccitati per le tre settimane di puro kitesurf e avventure fotografiche.
Eccitati di tornare a Mauritius ma anche eccitati per ulteriori esplorazioni, ci dirigevamo verso una piccola provincia di Mauritius e un paradiso per il kiteboard chiamato Rodrigues. Che inizio Avevamo troppa attrezzatura per farlo seriamente. Viene fuori che era di Rodrigues ed era molto felice che questi stupidi australiani andassero a vedere il suo bellissimo paese Con una popolazione bassa di circa Gli abitanti del posto ti salutano e parlano prevalentemente francese e creolo, e la maggior parte parla anche inglese.
Una gita in barca di 30 minuti sulla barca da pesca locale e siamo rimasti piacevolmente sorpresi da piedi di mareggiata che si sposta verso sinistra in un canale attorno a una piccola isola di sabbia. Non volevamo fermarci, ma Andy ci ha segnalato che la marea stava iniziando a defluire dal canale.
Ci sono voluti circa 10 minuti per trascinare Brenton in laguna con la marea in uscita che stava davvero iniziando a pompare. Generi alimentari e birra sono economici, la sistemazione varia in modo significativo da molto economico a stile resort. Mi sentivo come un bambino in un negozio di dolciumi. Ho virato verso la laguna solo per controllare la forza down-the-line.
Mi sentivo abbastanza leggero, ma mi sembrava di perdere terreno quando riprendevo il mio tack controvento. Quello era un segnale di avvertimento, e in pochi minuti il vento infatti passava dal cross-off al pieno offshore. Probabilmente a meno di 15 nodi Il che era ok quando era cross-off ma una notizia terribile dato che ora. Eravamo nei guai. I successivi 20 minuti circa abbiamo lottato cercando di rientrare oltre la barriera corallina.
Finalmente ho iniziato a vedere la scogliera risalire dal profondo. Ho aspettato che passasse un set e sono andato svelto e veloce come potevo. Da qui siamo partiti sottovento e posizionati presso il sito RIKF. Quindi, essendo ora un giudice pienamente qualificato, era tutto pronto per cominciare. Sponsorizzata dalla bevanda energetica Rockstar, la festa era sulla spiaggia, con dj, ballerini locali, gruppi reggae e tende per il barbecue.
Oh, e abbiamo detto che era una festa di tre giorni? Questo includeva un downwinder di 35 chilometri con supporto in barca dalla nostra sistemazione a una bellissima isola sabbiosa dove si aspettava un barbecue. Pesca sulla roccia! Alla fine siamo stati fortunati e con qualche trattativa siamo riusciti a prendere un camper pop-top Toyota vecchia scuola con un frigorifero e un fornello da una signora anziana che stava per essere mandata a vivere in una casa di cura dalla sua famiglia, il che era strano dato che mi sembrava decisamente in forma.
Apparentemente la sua famiglia aveva insistito Il furgone aveva 30 anni ma aveva un chilometraggio basso ed era stato usato molto raramente quindi era un affare. Abbiamo sistemato la nostra kitesurf mobile per la nostra missione con un nuovo set di pneumatici, un pannello solare e una seconda batteria nuova. Ma prima dovevamo mettere in valigia quattro kite, tre barre, cinque tavole, due fucili subacquei, mute, due canne da pesca, attrezzatura fotografica, cibo, 20 kg di cosmetici di Anna e il resto dei nostri effetti personali. Non so come abbiamo fatto, ma siamo riusciti in qualche modo a fare tutto.
Con il senno di poi probabilmente avremmo visto condizioni migliori, ma volevo provare qualcosa di nuovo e dirigermi a sud sulla strada meno battuta. In questo modo sarebbe una nuova esperienza sia per Anna che per me. Niente di meglio di nuove esperienze quando si tratta di viaggi in kitesurf.
Meglio stare al freddo che affrontare le folle. Quando abbiamo trovato spiagge di sabbia bianca fiancheggiate da promontori rocciosi e ricoperti da una rigogliosa foresta pluviale temperata, sapevamo che la nostra avventura era iniziata nel modo giusto. Mentre ci accampavamo in una spiaggia isolata, spesso facevamo colazione con i canguri prima di un sessione di surf, e poi finivamo con il kite nella brezza pomeridiana.
Ma avevamo fissato obiettivi ambiziosi per questo viaggio, quindi ci siamo sforzati per trovare alcune epiche sessioni con vento side-shore. Questo viaggio era prevalentemente focalizzato sul kite, ma avevamo un piano B con il paddle surf, la pesca e la pesca subacquea. Abbiamo viaggiato lungo la costa controllando point break dopo point break per il kite. Ma siamo stati spesso fortunati e abbiamo avuto molte sessioni memorabili. La mia scusa e mi ci sto attenendo era che era troppo presto nel viaggio per distruggere un kite.
Le condizioni nei Roaring Forties fanno sicuramente aprire gli occhi. Dense, lunghe alghe Toro. We spent a few weeks in Tassie and found a few Abbiamo trascorso alcune settimane a Tassie e abbiamo trovato alcuni posti meravigliosi, ma non abbiamo avuto la fortuna di trovare vento e onde allo stesso tempo. Siamo riusciti a ottenere qualche sessione divertente e abbiamo avuto un assaggio.
Solo un breve salto di km dalla costa orientale Quindi rimanete sintonizzati. Il posto sembra pazzesco. Era come respirare aria vera per la prima volta. Le spiagge nei Roaring Fortes sono selvagge. E non voglio neanche pensare alle creature che vivono nel mare. What did it take to change that? Just a group of long-time La Ventana visitors, a few tequilas, some motivation, and a few long days… And, as you will see in the next issue of the magazine with Brandon and pals, they nailed it, and now even have a park event lined up for Choco Park founder member Fritz Otiker takes us through the project.
This is a story about a group of friends, coming together from all over the world to contribute something to a small kiteboarding community. Then there's kiteboarding too. All in all, the main attraction is our community in La Ventana, where we call our camp the Friend Zone. The Friend Zone is all about — you guessed it — friends. And we have an abundance of them.
Talented, beautiful, brilliant people from all walks of life. Connecting in some way or another through past life experiences and the various activities available in LV. It's not like what you may encounter at other kite destinations. We are a group that accepts everyone for who they are.

And this year we wanted to do something new to improve our already world-class kite set up. First we talked about it, then we talked about it some more. The drinks flowed, the waterfall of tequila dripped down our chins and we sprinkled in some desert antics before we decided what to do. Once that was out of the way, the decision was made. The Choco Kite Park was it. We began brainstorming it in full detail. Fast forward two seasons after the Friend Zone was created, and there lay our pile of wood from a palapa deck we had built during a previous season.
It was a sufficient amount of materials that could be re-purposed into a kite park feature. All agreed that it would be best used as a slide-up into a long rail.
Online English Italian translation, dictionaries and resources
Leaving us with enough wood left over for a small ollie-up rail. Then Kris Kinn had an idea for a kicker and contact was made with Dave Groves in Los Barriles who had a kicker buried in the sand at the beach. Proble m solvi ng Our plans for this park were loose, but as the project progressed, suddenly started to take shape.
Luckily we had all the help we needed located at the Friend Zone and the crew were ready to make this dream become a reality. Location, money, materials, labor and transportation were the five major road blocks we encountered. Choco Lake was already our flat water freestyle lagoon and it could easily hold ten riders if we separated the features properly.

It was the perfect tidal lagoon, isolated from town and away from the ever growing crowd on the water in La Ventana. Plenty of room for us to stretch out our wings and give this park build a go. Finding the tubes and stainless steel fasteners proved difficult in a small Baja town, so we had to get crafty by tapping into the local network. Even guys who had never unhooked before were stepping up, hitting all of the features.
We finally had the comradery of the same spirit and energy, nestled up into one place. Critiquing each other while waiting your turn in rotation was the norm. Time was ticking and a lot of work had to be finished, but once we built the features and made the drop happen, riders started to hit them full force.
It was like an explosion of breakthroughs and progression for each rider. But, much to our surprise, the La Ventana community rose up in full support of the project. We even received a visit from a bunch of pros who wanted a taste of the action… A lot of lessons were learned from building this park. You definitely need a team of people that can dedicate their time to it. These trials and tribulations have allowed us to better plan for our second season of the Choco Kite Park.
The Move The Pop Shove-it is definitely a fun trick to have in your pocket, and you can learn it right after getting your first proper air dialed. If you have a background in skateboarding, you will get this one very easily. Start your pop like a normal air with the front hand pulling in the middle left of the bar. As soon as you find yourself steady in the air, you can start sending the Shove-it. The key to this trick is to actually always keep your front.
When you see your board finishing its rotation, you can now slowly release the bar, bringing your back foot to its normal position, and stomp the trick. The Move I like the S-Mobe 5 because it is a technical trick and requires you to use speed and power. When I am competing, the S-Mobe 5 is the second trick on my list that I do and I usually also do it before my heat starts to get me pumped and ready for my heat.
When you reach the apex, you have to start to move your body in the opposite direction by pulling your bar to your back hip, keeping it as close as possible. While passing the bar, keep it as close as possible while bringing your back leg past your front leg to continue the rotation. Make sure that you are doing a front roll and not an S-bend, so that your body is more inverted. When you are about to land, bring both hands back on the bar so that you will be more in balance for your landing. The suit is stretchy and light, with an extra good feeling on the skin. The neoprene panels are sealed together and then sewed with blindstitches.
This new process brings more durability, waterproofness and flexibility to Manera wetsuits. The Meteor X10D is made for pure performance, and the inside feels stretchy and light, with an extra good feeling on the skin. There is also a unique quick dry lining, which will not only dry faster but also keeps the water out longer and therefore helps to maintain your body temperature creating an insulating shell and a winner suit.
The patterns have been renewed for this year to maximize the stretch and comfort, and the Polar lining reflects body heat and makes sure you will stay warm longer. The patterns of the Diva suits have been renewed to maximize the stretch and comfort of the suit. The waterproof stretch taping avoids leaking and keeps the suit flexible and warm, then the Polar lining gives a super-soft feel and reflects body heat to keep you out on the water for longer. It uses toasty warm Plusma-Plush inside lining on the upper body and legs to provide best possible heat retention.
Then the Powerseams and Maki-Tape 2. Hot-Stuff 2. The whole suit is made without any stitches and is fully liquid taped on the outside and fabric taped on the inside to offer superior stretch and a longer lifetime. You can now also get your Fahrenheit with a hood — so no excuses whatever the temperature. It is pure fabric taped on the inside, and only on the seam joint areas.
This allows even more flex, especially around the arms. So if you want to continue with your no compromise moves on the water and you want to feel like you are not wearing a wetsuit: you want the Celsius Pro Zipless. Then the new asymmetrical panel layout creates a great look to ensure that both the aesthetics and the functionality are as good as you can get If you want a wetsuit to see you through even the darkest of winter days then you need the Combat. The refined aesthetic and high function of the Recon makes it a must-have piece of equipment for any kiter demanding the highest performance on all levels.
New generation NeilPryde materials and technologies result in the ultimate experience on the water, so you still feel ready to go hard out even when the thermometer takes a serious dip…. Locks in the power with anatomical muscle wrapping technology strategically placed on the calves designed to improve stamina, increase muscle support and enable active recovery. EFX Expansion Panel. An anti-cramp technology which allows for increased blood flow when riding, resulting in improved performance.
The advanced dri-flex knitted outer jersey is super light and dries in a much shorter time compared to standard neoprene. The wheels are turning in the world of kiteboarding brands and there have been a few notable developments over the last few months. Right up there was the news that North Kiteboarding would be reborn as a closer subsidiary of parent company North Technology Group. Hey guys, thanks for taking the time to catch up with us.
So you will be kicking off an entirely new product line as North Kiteboarding. Can you talk us through the key players in terms of heading up the brand? However, we are all partners in the business, depending heavily on each other and all playing an integral part in the equation. He is the former Director of Manufacturing for the Pryde Group. Klaus is currently building a network of reps and agents to work with retailers and distributors for North Kiteboarding.
There is no one with more international experience than Klaus. He has visited literally hundreds of beaches across the. He also has many an epic story to tell around a campfire. I will be driving product development and brand marketing teams. I need to ensure the brand delivers a strong product range that respects where the brand has been in the past while looking forwards to the future. I am responsible for the look and feel of North Kiteboarding. I need to make sure the brand stays true to its heritage of technical performance. And who will be getting their hands dirty on the design side of things?
Pat Goodman has recently joined as Chief Kite Designer and will design all our kites. Pat Goodman is ready to start with a fresh perspective when it comes to designing a North kite and acknowledges he has a huge task ahead of him. Hugh also kills it on all boardsports and has had a lifetime in the industry, designing award winning products. Jamie Scott from Tribal Surfboards will be our board shaper. Jamie is one of the leading surfboard shapers in Australasia, a great kiter and has a better understanding of laminates than anyone I know.
Uli Sommerlatt is our Product Manager and an avid kiteboarder since We decided to bring in the big guns and were lucky enough to attract an expert naval engineer as our Product Manager. You aim to have some products for us for August What are the challenges of getting a new product. The North Kiteboarding team have a proven track record of delivering quality and innovation. We come from a long and diverse background within the industry, from multiple companies.
With the North brand, we have the ability to take a really fresh approach to creating a more holistic range of products. We are amped to be designing a new range that will be more efficient on multiple levels. We all live in and on the water and are extremely passionate about the sport. This drives our commitment to develop products that retailers, riders and the community will love. So I am guessing that things are already moving in terms of development — is it exciting to be starting with a fresh piece of paper? MR: As a team, we have collectively developed a range plan that we think is efficient yet dynamic; a range that challenges us, but is achievable within the timeframe.
And do you plan to release any boards as well or is there a longer term plan for these releases? I can let you know that we will have a complete range of kites, control systems, TT boards, surfboards and foilboards releasing mid We have access to technology that we have never had before. The North Technology Group specializes in the investment of technology brands and markets, then leveraging the technology within the group.
MR: We will have to license a few key industry standard features like one-pump and the Nalu Kai Quick Release, but other than those standards, we believe we have some new IP that will shake up the industry a little. Will there be a brand HQ as such and where will the testing take place? These offices will be critical for our sales teams to support our valued retailers. Operationally they will carry stock and provide a high level of service. The offices need to be close to the retailers to ensure fast delivery and provide assistance.
For testing, Pat Goodman has lived in Taiwan for about 10 years, Taiwan has to be one of the most consistently windy places in the world. He will continue to be based there with regular trips to New Zealand for testing. Then we have a new design and marketing office on the west coast of Auckland, 15 minutes from the west coast beach and only 25 minutes from the east coast. Auckland is unique as it has quick access to great testing conditions on two sides of a very active Southern Ocean. We are also lucky enough to have a half pipe skate ramp and a creative area to help get the creative juices flowing at HQ.
Mike, what did you learn in terms of developing the CR:X system that you can transfer into this new project? MR: The racing One-Design concept really opened my eyes to the world of sailing. This has assisted with developing the North Kiteboarding brand and understanding its strong heritage with parent company North Sails.
I was blown away by the technology within sailing and the lengths designers go to save weight and improve performance. I hope to transfer some of this knowledge to the world of kitesurfing. PG: This puts me in a fantastic position actually. I have 17 years of experience and accumulated knowledge in inflatable kite development. I am excited with the challenge and look forward to designing this new, fresh, full range of kites in conjunction with my new development team members and with my own personal DNA signature.
Do you plan to operate along similar lines? You will have to wait and see! All we can say is that it will be different MR: We have access to some devastating technology within the North Sails and Southern Spars parent companies, but we have to be mindful and balance this by not taking on too much in the first year. Can we expect to see some of this technology and knowledge transferred into the world of kite foils? Uli has a background in yacht and foil design that gives him an analytic and scientific approach when it comes to products.
He and the team are really looking forward to transferring into the world of kiteboarding. Of course a brand also needs team riders — can you share any news regarding this yet?! MR: Watch this space! And what more can we expect to hear about before next August? MR: Not too much to be honest. We plan to focus on preparation, we need to make sure we deliver a solid technical range of products that we can share in an exciting fresh way. But we will be keeping cards close at hand prior to the launch. So, Odo will be a relatively new brand to a lot of our readers.
What can you tell us about the brand and your philosophy? Indeed, the brand is new to the market. Odo Kiteboarding was launched in June but the very initial phase of the project dates back to January when a team of riders shaped the first Compact Series Surfboards. The Odo Kiteboarding team is made up of people that have long time experience in relevant industries close to kitesurfing.
So we have 30 years of experience in the hi-performance superyachts sailing industry and have made use of this and of high tech materials and special construction techniques to design top quality and high performance products, to let riders enjoy the wind and the water in the best way.
All our products are designed to combine performance with aesthetic, and have been prototyped and tested at a local, European and worldwide level by a range of riders for over three years. So the Odo collection is upon us. Can you run us through the kites that you have released and explain a little bit about each of these? Odo Kiteboarding is releasing two kite models made with proprietary design to cover the vast majority of the market needs. The YO kite is more oriented towards strapless freestyle, wave, hydrofoil and the school segment, and the K1 hybrid kite is more focused on freeride, freestyle and wave.
Each model is available in nine sizes from 4 to 12m and in blue, red or green colorways. Can you give us some more details about the YO? The intuitive bar feeling and predictable flying position will be beneficial both for skilled riders and for beginners still taking their first kite lessons. Thanks to the leading edge design, the YO kite also guarantees a quick relaunch. The excellent pop that YO kites deliver is useful to learn or improve strapless freestyle and to progress during each session. The YO kite also performs extremely well in the low end wind range which allows the rider to maneuver quickly in the waves with a smaller kite or to be used for hydrofoiling.
And the K1? This is the most versatile kite in the range that, thanks to its hybrid design, will allow the rider to use it for different purposes. Its intuitive and soft bar feeling combined with a progressive power delivery, high turning speed, top stability, great depower and excellent upwind performance make the K1 suitable for freeride, freestyle and wave riding. K1 kites have been engineered to let the rider control the unhook pop with the certainty of having the right power at the right time, and K1 hang time performance will help the rider in the hooked tricks as well.
These fly on the Quick Vario bar — what can you tell us about this? The bar is embedded with innovative materials and functional conceptions from the sailing industry: titanium fittings to avoid the degradation from the salt and low diameter flying lines 1.
The EVA injected technology handles are made to guarantee the best grip and comfort while riding, while the quick release reduced size increases the bar stroke. Our QR cup has a special design that helps activate it immediately if required. The flying lines are 25 meters in length 22 meters plus 3 meter length extensions.
Then you have a complete lineup of surfboards — what is on offer here? The deep single concave bottom design of the Compact and Compact Pro guarantees acceleration and quick planing and a lot of fun in all conditions. The Classic Pro is ideal for waves up to medium size while the Gerrie surfboard is for big waves or for riders that prefer a smaller volume board. For all four models the special deck design features a structural beam and lower lateral deck area that have been engineered to increase the resistance to longitudinal forces and at the same time to increase the foot contact with the board.
Thanks to this design the rider will enjoy a superior board robustness paired with unmatched riding comfort and board control when pulling freestyle tricks. What is the layup of the boards? The boards are made with EPS high quality core, epoxy resin, bamboo, carbon and cork reinforcements. With the lamination, two bamboo layers are added on the deck of the Compact and Gerrie Series while the Compact Pro and Classic Pro are a bit lighter and are laminated with one bamboo layer and one UD carbon tape. In all the surfboard range, two cork reinforcement areas are placed in the front and back heel impact areas to reduce the shock of the impacts.
And what are you planning to release over the coming months? To complete our range, we will soon release two models of twintip boards, and we are also working on a hydrofoil project to be released in How has the launch gone so far and have you been pleased with what people have had to say? As usual the launch of a new brand is challenging but we are happy for what has been done so far and excited about the future: people that tested our products during the demo days in Spain, France and Italy are extremely satisfied about their ease of use, performance, design and safety.
Thanks for taking the time to talk to us. What is the main news with the kites for ? Then in the rest of the kite lineup we also have the second generation of the Breeze which has already been very successful. The Breeze V2 is absolutely foil-oriented and is so intuitive to fly. The size range goes from 3 to 17m, and the larger sizes are more responsive while the smaller sizes have been optimized to handle stronger winds and still offer perfect speed control and stability for foiling.
When depowered, the canopy is more stable and the overall range of the kite has been widened. The WTF is our specific kite for freestyle pro-riders. Compared to the previous model, we have improved this aspect a lot on the new model We also worked on the turning speed. Also the connection between rider and kite is super important. With the Bandit XII you feel really connected to your kite and you will feel comfortable from the first moment on it. The kite is an extension to your body that works in harmony with you. The smaller sizes of the Bandit XII have been designed more with regard to kiting in waves and strapless riding, and the bigger sizes excel in lighter winds.
The Bandit is still our kite for everything — many schools use it for teaching and rentals, Mitu is performing his strapless tricks with it, our team riders use it for Big Air and they win contests with it So what is the main difference between the and Bandit? Generally we are working on improving the same things every year, which is finding the perfect balance between power and lateral pull, maneuverability and connection to the kite. And also we want to have the biggest wind range on the kite!
What are the main highlights with the boards for ? On the twintip side, the Trax is our most popular model which also has a long heritage. It excels in freeriding and freestyling, and the HRD Rails which are shaped in a unique 3D-technology consist of different areas which offer smooth gliding through chop without spray, great carving ability, superior grip, bite where it is needed, and excellent pop.

The Trax works for a wide variety of riders, from freestyle experts to beginners and we are very pleased with how this is this year. Foils have become a big part of the kitesurfing world and beyond — are they now a major part of your business? Yes, we also spend a lot of time and effort working on our foil range. Five years ago we started with foiling, and since then it has become a big part of the kite world, but it has expanded beyond this, now even into the surf world. Producing all those pieces is of course a huge challenge of technology, but as the discipline is growing, you have to keep up.
We also have windsurf pro riders in our team now! Which model would you recommend for someone just starting out? Since spring this year we have the IC-6 V2. It is predictable and intuitive, the takeoff is really progressive and it offers a super smooth ride. Made in our Injected Carbon technology our wings are way more resistant than conventional carbon wings.
Then the fuselage and mast are made of aluminum, and a 4-bolt plate can be plugged in to make the foil compatible with any board fitted with tracks. And it has been a good few months for your team riders. We are really proud of them, the freestyle team is doing pretty well. Maxime Chabloz went on the podium more than once this year, also Paul Serin did a very good job.
In terms of waveriding and strapless there is Mitu who is and remains a legend, and Camille Delannoy. The latest collection is a refinement of some key products, updates of the favorites and of course introducing a few brand new ones too. So what is the headline news with the kites? Well, the Ultra V2 is our most hyped up kite for the launch of the collection. It has been developed as a high performance kite for light wind freeride and foil riding. The Ultra has become accessible for riders on all levels and across all genres of freeride.
For the improvements on the Ultra V2 are mainly on the bigger sizes where we managed to reduce the drag even more, by reducing the leading edge segments which increases the skin tension in each panel. Thus giving the kite a crisper and overall faster feeling. Then, sticking with the kites, the Union V4 has received a new bridle system and is now offering a more direct and crisp response, you can expect stronger and more reliable loops, then the extra bar pressure allows you to steer the kite more accurately when performing unhooked tricks.
The feeling is quite unique compared to the rest of the Airush range, and we are very pleased with where the kite is positioned within our range. The Union V4 is directed at intermediate to advanced riders who are still looking for the benefits of a 4-line kite setup. Wave and strapless riding has come a long way since we first introduced the Wave kite, but through ongoing development we continue to take those driving turns, big strapless forwards, and smooth power delivery to a new performance level.
With the optional fixed bridle, riders can pick between more direct steering and on-off power delivery without pulleys or a smooth and progressive ride with amazing gust response with pulleys. This fixed bridle has been designed specifically for each size of kite in the V8 range, giving the rider the most efficient and precise bridling. The benefits of the unique construction of Airush kites is evident in the Wave, where the Load Frame, absolute premium materials and years of construction refinement deliver the perfect balance of lightweight drifting capabilities and precision turning with durability and reliability.
And with the boards? Our premium freestyle twintip series, the Livewire, has undergone some big changes for the release. The Livewire twintips have a new deck and bottom profile, which have transformed the board from the shape which had been in the market in the years prior. Now available in both freestyle and park specific outline options, this board is best ridden with bindings and when unhooking for the ultimate freestyle performance. The highest rocker and stiffest flex pattern in our range allows for the aggressive pop and control on powered take-offs required to really push your freestyle riding.
The Shredder is the newest member to our line-up, this asymmetrical board was born from the pure love of waves. The Shredder allows all kiters to enjoy a wave session while still giving the ease of use and maneuverability of a bi-directional twintip. The Shredder is a pure freeride board with great boosting abilities and guarantees fun each session.
Boasting incredible versatility, the Shredder is designed with an optional six fin configuration for that extra surf feel or a standard four fin twintip set-up for ultimate fun. Then the footstraps have an offset option allowing you to ride centered for standard freeriding or offset towards the back, with the extra fins for a more directional surf feel. In the pure kiteboarding space, the Carving Foil represents the cutting edge of recreational foiling.
The cm wing and 70cm mast offer an incredible combination of maneuverability and ease of use that allows for lower speed turns with a surprising amount of top end speed. Throughout the Airush foil range, we make use of a modular foil platform, allowing you to interchange between different mast lengths and wings, making the foils completely customizable. The Carving Foil can be paired with an 80 or 95cm mast for the more advanced rider or riding in a larger swell.
The Carving Foil is also a great entry point for anyone wanting to get into foiling due to the speed range, high lift and stability.

The most obvious development is the bottom shape — there are more channels and these are generally more pronounced. The rails are tapered with 9. You can ride it with 28mm or 48mm fins — we found that the 28mm gave the perfect amount of grip and we had no problems staying upwind with these in. On the water and the Bolt 3 likes to be ridden with power. It does feel like the new Bolt gets up and going a little earlier than the previous model and with its wider tips the ride also seems more refined.
The speed is quite something in the flat water as it just keeps on going but never loses grip. With this much speed, the Bolt can translate this into an insane amount of pop. Learn More - opens in a new window or tab Any international shipping is paid in part to Pitney Bowes Inc.
