dryrobe Advance Long Sleeve

Dry Robe have almost become so synonymous with the beach poncho; it's a little like when Hoover became the word for a Vacuum Cleaner. They have a range of options available, all of them wind and waterproof. As water sports enthusiasts, we use ponchos for getting changed in car parks, especially in winter and the Dry Robe does that job…

F-One SUP Peak Vario Carbon

As with all the F-One gear I’ve seen, be it kite or SUP, this is an incredibly well-finished piece of equipment. There is a smart sheen finish on the lower half of the shaft, and then the upper half uses what they call ‘anti-skid’ which is a matte finish, presumably for choking down during your stroke. The Vario adjustable model…

RRD Morpho

To look at, this board is typical of RRD. I’ve known them as a brand for well over a decade now and seen their various offerings in SUP/Kite and windsurf over the years and I like the fact they often defy conventional design for boards. They like to take a proven concept and shake it up a little with something…

Sunova Style

This board has a super interesting shape. For me, it was reminiscent of a Donald Takayama style performance nose rider longboard. It has a huge squared off spoon like nose with loads of bottom shape, straight parallel rails with lovely rounded tops into a sharper edge, going down to super pinched-in, performance looking pintail. In terms of finish, it looks…
