layers & outliers

Like a digital music producer we have the chance to build multi-layered experiences into our weekends through the sessions we choose to – or not to - take. Okay, the studios for a beautiful sound can be expensive, but the pathway to affordability begins with a willingness to put the guitar down for a moment and realise the acoustics may work for more than just rock ‘n’ roll. On page 120 Grant ‘Twiggy’ Baker explains how he’s found that being open minded and purely passionate about being in the ocean; be it surfing (his primary career focus – he’s a three time big wave World Champion), kiting, bodyboarding, spear-fishing, SUPing and now surely through wing-surfing, he broadened his skill-set and linked the nuanced muscle memories required to do all of them…

most wanted 2020

GET YOUR 2020 VISION ON. THIS ISSUE WE OPEN MOST WANTED UP TO FOCUS PURELY ON THE COMMON JULY / AUGUST BATCH RELEASES OF BOARDS AND KITES. IT’S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT SOME BRANDS, LIKE OZONE FOR EXAMPLE, RELEASE THEIR PRODUCTS AS INDIVIDUAL ITERATIONS WHEN THEY’RE READY, RATHER THAN STRICTLY ON AN ANNUAL BASIS. SO YOUR FAVOURITE BRAND MIGHT BE MISSING FROM HERE, BUT IT’S LIKELY BECAUSE THEIR RANGE IS STILL CURRENT AND FIRING! CABRINHA 2020 Cabrinha are 20 years in the game this year and their new line-up once again focuses on user-experience and their typically tech touches. A new ‘Nano’ RipStop material has a special coating that fuses the weave together, offering double the tear strength of regular ripstop, increased durability but also stability. The new Modular Overdrive bar gives you…

spy network airton cozzolino

Airton Cozzolino claimed a magnificent single elimination win against hard charging James Carew at the end of one of a truly stellar day of competition as we went to print on this issue. Airton, James, Oswald Smith and local rider Jeremy Chan had all pulled in to massive pits that day, but the session was about far more than just brave barrels. The reef builds steeply from the ocean floor at Bel Ombre and, as we’d seen the day before, can struggle to allow a big swell to steadily pitch. The abrupt nature of the reef’s shape can really jack up a smaller swell though, and on this day the reduced ocean pulses made powerful contact with the shallow coral structure to produce superb, clean, mid-to-large waves over the reef. Airton…

mark my words

TUBE KITES OR FOIL KITES? It’s amazing that in a world of information so many people can still be ill informed. When the answers to 95% of your questions can be found, within seconds, through the device that sits in your pocket, there has to be an explanation as to why this situation is so. I’ve read so many plainly incorrect comments on social media groups and forums that it makes me think people either don’t want to know the truth, or they simply stopped believing anything they read. Logic actually suggests there is another possibility that could be realistic: maybe there is just so much information available that people simply don’t read it anymore; maybe it’s just easier to let someone tell you than research it for yourself? Since the dawn of…

sessions #01 keahi’s boneyard boogie

There’s a spot on Oahu’s North Shore, sort of a divider between Backyards and Sunset Beach, which marks the end of where riders at Backyards kick out and the point at Sunset that’s too deep to take-off. The name Boneyards spells out the risk from a patch of the reef that sticks up and drops away, with pinnacles and crevasses that are best avoided. Here bad things happen to good people, either unaware of the devious nature of the place, or through getting caught off guard and swept into its clutches. Often too shallow to duck dive, if you get caught in the wrong spot you get the full force of the wave as it blows across six inches of damp rock. Here Keahi finds an exit from an incredible barrel just as…
