Re: Essaouira with the Mrs

Moulay is awesome - but be on your A game, as the waves can be well over head high & very punchy - be very careful atlow tide, as there is a very large bolder that gets exposed & terrified me on a bottom turn. Sidi Kaoke to the South of Essaouira is my favourite spot, it works as a point to beach b...

Re: Essaouira with the Mrs

Both waves and no crowds: half an hours drive to Moulay. Moulay is the spot for (pretty heavy) waveriding. Nothing to do apart from kiting/windsurfing. We stayed in Essaouira, got ourselfs a Riad in the old city via AirBNB. Awesome. If you'r looking for a pool, you'd need to look in the new city, o...

Using 2017 North Evo 11m and 8m with one bar?

Can someone recommend one North bar that i can use on both my 11m and 8m North Evos? Ideally i'd like to be able to adjust the bar width and the line length . Would a 2017 trust bar (small/medium) be ok? Does it come with line extensions to reduce the 24mm lies (for the 11m) to 22mm (for the 8m)? I'...

Re: Wheres good for summer waves?

You can check the wind statistics of Kalpitiya; we have the same wind. https://www.windguru.cz/archive-stats.php?id_spot=115722 However, in Kalpitiya, the wind comes overland, which makes it more gusty. And the termical effects of the sand dunes don't help (it slows down the trade wind) Also there ...

Re: Strapless board for a big guy

At 215 you need to be on a 5.4 or 5.6 FW Vanguard or the 5.3 or 5.5 Vader depending on your rocker preference and what waves you typically ride. The FW boards simply ride SO much better than any of the boards the kite companies are putting out. Ok, you're actually not the first to say that but at 6...
