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.
