Kai competes in Brazil in the Ubatuba Itamabuca Pro Stop #2 on the SUPWT. This is all of the waves Kai caught up until the Semi Finals.
Het wordt stilaan tijd dat er hier nog eens een vette swell op ons afkomt, ondertussen kunnen we alleen maar dromen van de perfecte condities, zie de video hieronder en enjoy!
Een interessante evolutie...
Many brands and shapers are trying to bring down their boards' size to give them a better "shortboard" feel, but also make them more maneuverable and easier to transport!
The balance is hard to find between being able to do tight turns and keep a minimum of floatability, since we're not all skinny light riders.
Some brands keep working hard to keep looking for the perfect alchemy and it is the case with Infinity Surfboards and the "Mini Simmons" line, a few 7'2" by 28.5", developped by the Californian rider Dave Boehne, who's working hard to bring the Mini SUPs into the main stream.
Dave Boehne riding the Mini Simmons inspired Infinity Phoenix V2 Model. 7'2" x 28.5" x 4" x 95L x Twin Fin.
This was a beautiful day but the waves were pretty gutless. 1-2" with occasional 3' sets... You can see this board planes quite fast with little effort and whips around turns in flat, soft waves. The Phoenix makes average days into FUN days... Short, stable, fast, skatey ride...

ou were probably wondering when I would finally get around to how to catch and surf waves on a SUP. Ideally, everyone would learn the basics first before even attempting to go into the surf to catch waves. Unfortunately many head straight into the surf without basic skills and little knowledge of surfing etiquette. I hope you are not one of them. Please make sure you have a good grasp of all the basic skills covered in the first 6 technique posts and knowledge of surfing etiquette before even thinking about catching waves, especially if there are others in the waves with you.
For a pretty good summary of SUP etiquette, check out: http://www.supright.com
I worked with a class from Hawaii Pacific College that made these videos as part of their business school projects.
This first one is about how to catch a wave and how you want to approach the wave differently when you are Stand Up Paddling than when you are surfing without a paddle:
This video is about switching your stance from parallel stance to surf stance as you are catching the wave:
This video is about how to use your paddle on the wave for balance and turning:
Thanks for watching. Again, please remember to make sure you first master the basic concepts of SUP before attempting to go into the surf zone:
