Palanga

On the west coast of Lithuania lies Palanga, a popular spot on the Baltic Sea for kiteboarding, landboarding, SUPing and surfing. Eighteen kilometres long and up to 300 meters wide of sandy beaches, it is the busiest summer resort in Lithuania.

Back Loop from Blind

Some time has passed since we last covered a move that fits into the loosely labelled hooked-in freestyle category. Not everyone is keen on unhooking for various reasons, whether it be the conditions they ride in, the kit they own, the potential consequences, or even that it just doesn’t rock their boat - but that doesn’t mean that freestyle moves…

Hooked in Front to Blind

Unfortunately many hooked-in moves are overshadowed by their unhooked cousins. Which is a great shame as they still showcase a lot of technique and can look so smooth. Once again the combinations of moves to and from blind look truly stunning. This was recently showcased by one of Britain’s most stylish riders, Ali Barret, who having broken his hand managed…

The 2022 Airush Switch is an absolute stunner with its Palownia exposed wood core and simple, modern graphics. We know graphics have no impact on the performance of a board, but when a board looks this good, we're pretty sure we look better riding it! To be fair, there aren't too many hideous boards on the market, but we are…
