26 May 2018Lots of new foil models coming out this spring from F-One. After many hours spent on designing some of the world's best hydrofoils they are releasing kit for kitesurfers, SUP'ers, windsurfers and surfers alike!
It's the time of the year when Naish releases their mid-season kites. And boy, there's some really good stuff coming out this time! Starting with the redesigned Naish Dash 2019 with more power, faster looping and better handling than before. They've made one of our favourite kites even better. Followed by the very much loved Naish Ride 2019 and Naish Boxer 2019. Check all of them out below!

After you've had your kitesurfing lessons you, as a kitesurfer, should know well how to perform an emergency packdown. This can be a result of winding dropping off to a level where you can't relaunch the kite, when the kite inverts, a line breaks or for any other reason you can no longer fly your kit. The video below has been created for both kitesurfers and powerboat users and the amazing guys from the RNLI showing how to deal with a kitesurfer in trouble.

We talk a lot about kitesurfing in cold conditions. That's what we get in the UK. We do moan about them too. It's pretty much the first thing you say to the other person at the beach. "Oh man, it's so cold today, eh!" Well there are colder places on Earth to surf! Putting aside Ruben Lenten's trip to Iceland and boys from F-One Kiteboarding trip to the Antarctica you wouldn't believe what you can get in... Dakota, USA. Here's a film from the NP Surf and Cabrinha boys exploring the American wilderness and testing out the NP's winter wetsuits...

Karolina Winkowska's taking us to Brazil - one of the best places to go on kiteboarding holidays. Showing that her kitesurfing life is more about enjoying the moment, freeriding and stoke rather than routine busting same moves. We are always stoked to see some Slingshot gear in action too! Especially in hands of a pro that Karolina is. So sit back and enjoy... and look out for Skymonster Brazil Kitesurfing Downwinder Trip in 2017!
