South African Quiksilver team riders Slade Prestwich, Beyrick De Vries, Michael February and David Van Zyl were recently at Supertubes, Jeffreys Bay. The swell arrived and the waves turned on as stiff offshore winds and corduroy lines wrapped into the bay resulting in a firing lineup.

North Canyon – Exploração das Ondas Grandes da Praia do Norte
O projeto de exploração das ondas grandes foi iniciado em 2010, é protagonizado pelo surfista havaiano e desenvolvido pela Empresa Municipal Nazaré Qualifica. Inclui a prática de surf, tow‐in e stand up paddle com o objetivo de promover a Nazaré internacionalmente como destino turístico de referência para a prática dos desportos de ondas grandes, e de filmar três documentários que registam a atividade desportiva de McNamara bem como o quotidiano daquela vila.
Garrett McNamara é um dos surfistas de ondas grandes mais conceituados do mundo, e na última década tem percorrido o mundo em busca de novos desafios no mar. O “extreme waterman” foi uma das duas únicas pessoas no mundo a surfar ondas criadas pelo degelo dos glaciares do Alasca no Verão de 2007. Detém, desde 2011, o recorde mundial pela maior onda alguma vez surfada, que o norte-americano “apanhou” na Praia do Norte, na Nazaré.
Praia do Norte
Conhecida pelas suas ondas grandes, perfeitas e incríveis, a Praia do Norte encontra-se sob a influência do fenómeno “Canhão da Nazaré”.
Trata-se de um acidente geomorfológico raro, o maior da Europa e um dos maiores do mundo, que consiste numa falha na placa continental com cerca de 170 quilómetros de comprimento e cinco quilómetros de profundidade.
O “Canhão da Nazaré” canaliza a ondulação do oceano Atlântico para a Praia do Norte, praticamente sem obstáculos, proporcionando a criação de ondas com um tamanho fora do normal em comparação com a restante costa portuguesa. Um verdadeiro playground para os amantes dos desportos de ondas.

From indonesia to the last autumn swell at home in France, Kyllian is ripping and just enjoy his life. Stronger, he knows that everything can change quickly, but also that if you keep fighting and positive , you can just come back …

Slingshot has a proven track record of grooming true icons in our sport–helping build the likes of Ruben Lenten, Youri Zoon, and Ben Wilson. We take pride in finding and recognizing talent and as a result have built a highly-respected reputation helping riders grow to their full potential as both athletes and as people.
Finding this talent is never easy. For the last few years team manager Mauricio Abreu has searched and waited patiently in his quest to find the next great rider. His search brought him back to his home country of Brazil and the talent he discovered there can only be described as “one of the most profound talents that has ever come across our radar.” It lies within fifteen year old Carlos “Bebe” Mario, a wonder-kid that managed to win the first PKRA event he ever entered.
Under the guidance of Mauricio and full support of Slingshot Sports we are confident this talented young Brazilian has what it takes to become part of the next generation of PKRA champions and redefine what’s possible in ‘freestyle’ kiteboarding. And today, Feb. 17th, one day before Bebe’s first PKRA event as a Slingshot rider, we are releasing Patrick Wieland’s new short film “The story begins: Carlos Mario + Slingshot”, so sit back and enjoy the next chapter of kiteboarding history.
Here is the episode 7 of my Kitesurf Paradise. It was in August in Egypt in El Gouna (near Hurghada). Never seen a spot so sunny and windy ! 17 days of kiting from sunrise to sunset. I present you the 3 best spot, the KBC center (buzzha beach), the lagoon upwind the center and Tawila Island.

Kevin Langeree made his mother a promise back in 2009, and this year, he made that promise come true.
After 10 years of competing on the PKRA Freestyle Tour and claiming the 2009 World Champion Title, there was only one thing left to do…win the Red Bull King of the Air!
It all came down to variety, quality over quantity, and good style mixed with elements of extremity. Put your hands in the air and scream as Kevin separates the men from the boys, rattling through the heats to eventually, walk away with the 2014 Red Bull King of the Air Title.
The future of kite boarding is here and Kevin is leading the way!
A Champion’s Guide to winning the KOTA:
1) Make sure you’re Kevin Langeree
2) Whisper sweet nothing’s to your Naish Monarch 134
3) Get pumped with your Naish 10m Torch
4) Use your 24m lines to your advantage
5) Get stoked!

The “FreeRide’ Project is an idea that we had at the start of 2011. Four riders, from different brands, we started traveling together and filming how we wanted our sport to look and be represented…this is a no-mess, un-brand motivated representation of what we want kiteboarding to be and what it means to us as we travel to some of the best spots and biggest wakestyle events throughout the year, to just have fun and ride!
Following the years of the UK crew; Tom Court, Sam Light, Aaron Hadlow and James Boulding. This video goes to South Africa, Greece, Cape Hatteras, Egypt and Russia, with some kiteboarding and wakeboarding (cable) action in each spot.
Sit back and enjoy, the video will be available for free download soon. The idea being that you can burn your own DVD/movie, share it at home or play it in your shops!! Spread the word!!
A big THANKS to all involved who made this possible and helped us along the way! The KiteLauncher!!
