Hurry, because the number of surf wetsuits in SurfPM warehouse is sensibly decreasing.

RRD Religion MK6 2016 – Synonymous of WAVE

kitesurfing durankolak november

Over the weekend storm hit our coast with very strong wind, ideal for kitesurf and windsurfing. Extremely warm for November, with temperatures up to 23-24s, sunny and very nice, weather was perfect for riding and testing some new 2016 model from the kites that arrived in SurfPM.
We took with us the new RRD kite for 2016: Religion MK6 (official video Religion – synonymous of WAVE) 8m, and to make a comparison, we took also two older models from 2014-15.
In Durankolak everything was perfect + lots of sun, only the wind was very variable – from 14k to 34knts. We drove both days for several hours, but with such big gusts we cannot yet say what RRD Religion 2016 is better with than the previous models. The plus we saw immediately was the bag, made of waterproof material and designed so that you could be put it on the car seat – a perfect option for going straight home with the neoprene, without changing clothes in cold weather.
Hopefully we’d again have the opportunity for kitesurf tests before Christmas.

The first official wetsuit by Quiksilver


Truewetsuits by Quiksilver – Video

When you are one of the big fish on the market you can make some experiments.
Quicksilver proved in the time that they can dictate the surfing fashion and a while ago they announced that they will release the first official wetsuit Тruewetsuits which you can use not only in the water. You can wear it anywhere, you can even go to work with it. Meanwhile you can go surfing.

It is not a lie. The wetsuit thickness is 2mm and it is made with the latest technologies. There is three color options: Black, Navy, and Tuxedo. The price is ¥300,000 which is approximately 2400$. It is sold only in Japanese online store of Quicksilver for now.
The wetsuit can be used only from the surfers at the moment. There will be a new design for all the kitesurfers and windsurfers because It is not ok to get it wrinkled when you put the harness on. 😉
If you want to get the attention of all the girls on the beach – Truewetsuits is the key. 😉
