REVIEW: HOTSAILS KS3 3-BATTEN

It must be my feminin side but I love the colors and looks of this sail on the water and yes, I want to show off to my friends so this review is probably as subjective as it possibly can be. However, I’ll try to be realistic, haha! Hotsails is one of the most innovating […]

VIDEO REVIEW: SOLOSHOT

The Soloshot is rapidly making a name for itself among surfers, kitesurfers, windsurfers and standup paddlers. I’ve owned my Soloshot for quite some time now, so we decided a while ago to do a video review (our first one). The video gives you some hints and tips as well as our verdict regarding the Soloshot […]

TEST WAVE-SUPS (120-140 liters)

Most people start supping on 150+ liter boards and as you get more stoked of wavesupping, downsizing is the first step to get the shortboard-feeling and make the next step in your personal sup-development. As we had our trip to Brandon Bay planned, I decided to setup a test-format, just to give all people who […]

WIDE FOOT STRAPS, ARE THEY ANY GOOD?

A couple of months ago I was presented two wide foot straps for testing. These are the F2 straps used on the F2 Chilli Freestyle line in the past. So with this opportunity I went out to test them on the water! First the straps themselves: – Much wider off course. – The adjustment is […]

REVIEW: EZZY ELITE (2014)

Summer has come which means Ezzy releases a new version of their flagship wave sail the Elite. The 2014 Elite sail range has evolved in different areas since the previous version. No major changes but small improvements that make the sail an even bigger joy to sail. I’ve recently received mine and I’m keen to […]

REVIEW: EZZY LEGACY 2013

This year I bought myself a brand new set of sails for the first time ever in my live! As I sailed Ezzy Wave SE 2008 sails, which still did very good, I was looking for a moment to replace my most used sails into new Ezzy’s. I really like the Elite, as well as […]

REVIEW: QUATRO THRUSTER LS 82 VS QUAD LS 84 (2013)

Jacco and Peter did reviews of their Quatro Thruster LS and Quad LS a few weeks ago. We thought it would be nice to switch their boards to see what the difference and similarities are between these boards (apart from the obvious fin setup). Here’s what they had to say after a sweet session on […]

REVIEW POINT-7 SALT 4.8 (2013)

After weeks of offshore winds we finally got some good forecasts. Best winds and waves predicted in Bretagne but as that is a 11 hour drive we headed up for a one-day-trip to Wissant, a three hour drive. For three weeks a a brand new P7 Salt 4.8/5.6 and a 3-batten Swag were waiting in […]

PROJECT X – FLIKKA ‘BOX OF GOLD’ PART 1

For a while I’ve been thinking about a board that really would fulfill my demands in light wind conditions. A few months ago I sold my Quatro Quad LS95, a superb board which I’ve been using the last years with lots of pleasure. But it was time for a change! Last January I visited the […]

REVIEW – QUATRO QUAD LS 110/84 (2013)

The first time I tried a Quad board, at the end of 2009, I fell in love with the concept and feel of the board. Wave riding became so much more fun with the drive the fins gave you in a turn. The only production board back then was the Starboard Quad ’10. I had […]
