Isn’t one important part of the SUP world the workout with the paddle?
Spot on. Doesn't SUP stand for stand up paddle? Maybe it should now be called SUPWPWW (stand up paddle without paddle with a wing/ impossible to pronounce) :D

Re: The Naish Wing-Surfer

It still looks odd and goofy, not smooth or aestethic in any way, compared to every other wind discipline, windsurf or windfoil or kitesurf or kitefoil or whatever. And eventhough everyone says it works with small wings in little wind, we always see loads of wind in the videos, where you could even...

Re: Wave harness - 2018 ION CS Wave Kite x Ride Engine Prime x Mustic Majestic

Choosing a harness because someone finds it comfortable or not will not help, everyone is different. Just like shoes you need to try it yourself.

Otherwise said, after a small marketing trend for hard shells most pro wave riders are now moving back to softer more com pliable harnesses.

Re: Shinn Jackson - Sunburner

Board doesn't look very stiff to me but anything stiffer than last years is an improvement.

40 to 60 mm of anodizing ? That's thicker than the mast itself which is probably around 16mm thick. You probably meant microns. That's 0.0015748 of an inch for you Brits :)

Re: FAV certificate needed in Spain?

Tell me which government of which country issued the IKO(for example) certification so it can be validated in another country? None, IK0 is self proclaimed, I think they are based in the Dominican Republic so outside the EU anyway. They have been filling the void in countries without kitesurfing fe...
