During my kite coaching sessions I always touch on what goes into a surfboard - shape, fins, channels, tails, reinforcements, nose and rocker. There are a lot of elements that combine to affect the performance of a surfboard and let me be honest - there’s no magic combination, because every person and every day is different.
Your level, size, weight, what you want to do (airs or turns), whether you're surfing, kiting, or both is going to vary so picking just one board isn't going to work for most people. And often a board that started as your perfect match might not work for you anymore as your skills evolve. So don't get too attached - be flexible, try new things and don't be afraid to ditch your old favourite for a newer model. We always say to treat your surfboard like your girlfriend…. But on this occasion you might want to keep your options open.

Below I’ve broken down and explained some of the ingredients that go into surfboards and how they work in different conditions.

THE INSIDE STORY ON OUR KITES, BARS AND BOARDS

Over the last 24 months my team and I at +BWSurf have been busy making a lot of changes and working on an all new product range which is finally ready. The Æ2 Kite, Blue Chip Bar, Stallion V2, DHD signature boards and the Drifter 2.0 are the latest in our range of wave kiting equipment and I couldn't be happier with their performance and quality.

I am going to be honest and say that we have always been super proud of how well our gear performs in the waves however we’ve had more than our fair share of issues with the quality of some products.

But things have changed.

The Æ2 is now made in the Philippines, the Blue Chip Bar in Sri Lanka and our surfboards are made in Holland & Australia. Hyde Sails in the Philippines is one of the largest and most established sail manufacturers in the world and we are so happy to be working with them along with our other amazing partners.

Our mission has remained unaltered from the beginning; we want to create and share the very best wave riding products possible and BWSURF has never been in a better place. Our product range is the highest quality it has ever been and the performance is second to none. It would be remiss of me not to mention our biggest asset. We have the most amazing bunch of crew here at BWSURF. It’s simple, we are all here for the same reason, we love riding waves and enjoying all that the ocean has to offer. We are all so excited to get this new range on the water, some of our team riders, kite trip guests and friends have already had the chance to test it and give your feedback - thank you!

I am so proud of what our team have produced and I can't wait to share some more information about it very soon...

Bookings for next year’s Coral Coast Kite Week are now open. This trip is all about guided adventures and every day is different - from surfing peeling reef breaks and exploring the rainforest to long downwinders and trips up and down the coast. Intermediate and advanced kitesurfers will love the size and diversity of this natural playground.
