Utkatasana - Chair Pose - Intermediate

Great pose to strengthen the entire body and increase stamina. Feet should be placed hip distance apart either side of the handle on the centre of the board. Feet and knees are parallel and so are the arms. Make sure you don’t overarch the back by tucking the tailbone under and draw the ribs under. The best tip for increasing…

Introduction to Board Selection

Given the ever, “exponentially expanding” variety of products available on the current market (the list seems to be growing, almost on a fortnightly basis) you'd be forgiven for being confused when it comes to choosing your first board. Disciplines range from yoga, long board vs. short board surfing, touring, flat water, open water race, downwinder, river, foil and group SUP…

Balance Control and Efficiency

Perfecting Stance and board position. Comfort and feeling at ease on your board is the basis for stability, control and efficient paddling. If you do not feel comfortable on your board, you'll find your body is always making minor adjustments and shifts in body position. This constant movement will not only be disrupting; you won't be able to paddle effectively…

Sunova Style

This board has a super interesting shape. For me, it was reminiscent of a Donald Takayama style performance nose rider longboard. It has a huge squared off spoon like nose with loads of bottom shape, straight parallel rails with lovely rounded tops into a sharper edge, going down to super pinched-in, performance looking pintail. In terms of finish, it looks…

RRD Morpho

To look at, this board is typical of RRD. I’ve known them as a brand for well over a decade now and seen their various offerings in SUP/Kite and windsurf over the years and I like the fact they often defy conventional design for boards. They like to take a proven concept and shake it up a little with something…

RRD C.O.T.A.N. Classic

C.O.T.A.N. stands for Cut Off Nose And Tail, and what we have here is a modern breed of SUP that does away with the traditional surf shape in favour of a stubby nose and tail with parallel rails. The parallel rails are the key to these modern designs, as the rails don’t have to taper to a traditional nose area…
