I won’t lie. It’s been an odd couple of months… I was going to try and avoid any talk of the worldwide pandemic that the majority of the planet is dealing with right now, and hope that, through all the sunshine and smiles within these pages, we could just use the escapism this magazine provides as a chance to draw breath (which I hope it still is of course) and make no mention of it in this editorial. But the fact is, it’s a big and starkly sobering event that’s taken place during our tenure here on Planet Earth, and it’s something everyone has had to confront at some level or other. It does need to be mentioned, but perhaps we shouldn’t dwell. If my meditation app has taught me anything, it’s…

RIDER Dylan Wilcoxen PHOTOGRAPHER Russell Ord LOCATION Kandui Resort, Mentawai Islands Russell: Dylan’s Instagram account name, @alldaydylan, is the perfect reflection of who he is and how he lives his young 10-year-old life. Dylan lives in an area rich in quality waves; surfing used to take up 100% of his daylight hours in amongst a few hours of schooling, and now foiling is finding its way into his ocean time. According to Dylan, foiling is not only a perfect partner to his surfing, it’s opened up so many more waves in and around his home at Kandui Resort, giving real meaning to the area known as ‘Playgrounds’. RIDER Daniel Dingerkus PHOTOGRAPHER Hanno Dingerkus LOCATION Sardinia, Italy Daniel: As a water addict, who is living in Germany, you always got to make to most out of your trips.…

Hey Kai. Congrats on the multiple records! Are you the first to foil all three of those challenges? When those races happened in 2018 I wasn’t the only one competing in foiling for the Maui to Molokai or Molokai to Oahu but for the Napali Coast run I was. That season had incredible conditions every day and it really made those races special, exciting and fun. Especially with the Napali Coast run, it is notorious for no wind at the end. That day however it was the most perfect swells to the sand. How much did your crossing times shave off the records previously set? Quite a bit, the year before during the Molokai 2 Oahu race in 2017 I paddled my unlimited SUP in a time of 4:07:41, on the foil the…

Hi Mikaela. So what can you tell us about yourself? I recently turned 12, and I live in Fernandina Beach, Florida. It’s a small beach town as far north east in Florida as you can go, just across the border from Georgia. I have lived here my whole life. I was really young when I first went surfing. My dad would push me into waves when I was only a couple of years old, and when I was five when I competed in my first surf competition. When did you first see a foil, and what did you think? It was probably about two years ago when my dad and I went over to our friend Steve’s house. Steve had just gotten a foil and was starting to learn how to ride it.…

Somewhere north of Los Angeles, this pristine wind zone has been windsurfed and then kiteboarded since the early 80s. Then came kite foilers. Now the latest craze has turned all the kiteboarders and kite foilers into wing foilers! Deer have been seen on the beach, elephant seals breed there in the winter and are so thick on the sand you can’t even get through them to the water in late winter. The surrounding area is like God’s country, so much open space, craggy coastlines, and home to many native species. Seen here are local sailors Treve Jones (on the outside) and Donny Baxter. Two guys who seem to have grown gills, spending countless hours daily in the cold water doing what they love!…

Since the movie Step Into Liquid, it’s gotten pretty famous to surf waves coming off of ships. In surf mags and on the web, you can read endless stories from people trying to surf these waves, mostly without success… Those spectacular scenes of the tanker surfing in Texas definitely look perfect: long waves with rides that are many minutes long… essentially a dream for every surfer. But it’s not as easy to surf these kind of waves like they do in the movie. I’ll let you know why it’s not so easy, and what you need to do if you want to go surf them… When you watch Step Into Liquid, it looks like the guys surf these waves in the open sea, driving there with a speedboat to catch them.…
