The Passion MK9 and Global bar V8 will be released very soon! The team of IKSURFMAG already tested them intensively, hereby a summary;

'We were hugely impressed by the Passion; it’s a great all rounder that is stable in the air, fast and with smooth handling characteristics that many riders will love. Excellent build quality, well thought out design and a great package with a fantastic bar.

The light bar pressure allows you to spend longer on the water and we loved the quality of the overall set up on offer. This kites a thinker, ride it once, and it will leave you thinking about leaving your existing quiver for another session on the Passion…'

We are proud to support the Rebel Sessions initiative to reward and encourage cold water big wave riding in the South African winter months.

Dungeons may not be on the Big Wave Tour – but that is why there's the REBEL Sessions, put on to recognise the South African hellmen who dedicate themselves to hucking into just about anything.

Rrd teamrider and surfboardshaper Ian Armstrong who was 'Big Wave World Champ' in '99 will be on this years judging panel.

The REBEL Sessions window officially opened on July 18 and will run through until October 31. First run in 2011, the event took a five year break before returning last year.

Check out the action coming from the most windy freestyle spot in Sardinia, the Windsurfing club Sa Barra.
RRD has started a collaboration a year ago with Gigi Madeddu, the owner of the center, and Rossel Bertoldo. The center is located in the south of Sardinia and is the best place for freeride and freestyle training thanks to its constant wind and flat water conditions that makes it an unique spot in Italy

Jeremy Chan - Kiteboarding enjoying the Mauritian waves.. Unfortunately there is also a downside to these beautifull conditions that the island has to offer; this year already 29 people drowned. The rescue station is not allowed to use a jetski, which would probably save many lives on those big days that boats can't go out. Pls sign the petition in the link below to allow jetskis as rescue crafts on Mauritius
