360’s 720’s how about 2520’s… nearly and possibly a 2880 rotation. Local kite buggy rider Adam Toms take to using his landboard with his flysurfer speed 3 deluxe, 15meters in only 10mph wind. Makes me dizzy just watching, check out this short video clip. (warning X-Rated for descriptive use of shocking language for insane stunt)
The London Boat Show is hosting the World’s first full scale Indoor SUP Sprint Championships is this weekend.
Friday 14th to Sunday 16th January 2011.
A 70m Pool, thumping Rock Show sound and light system and 15 of the best UK SUP racers going head to head in the pool. Backed by Starboard SUP and Red Paddle Co this event brings SUP to a totally new audience they have an exhibition stand at the show and the interest so far has been fantastic.
Competition starts Friday and runs until Sunday. The Racing is at 3:15pm each day for one hour. Entry into the London International Boat show is £13 and kids go free.
Entry into the SUP racing is free once inside the boat show.
There is a qualifying event on Friday morning at the Boat Show, which is open to all Stand Up Paddle fans.
All kit is provided and if you qualify you get a free hotel room for the weekend and backstage passes.
The ideal all-round paddleboard for the heavier paddler.
The latest addition to the Red Air range stands out as the only quality all-round inflatable paddleboard at 32″ wide, and is ideal for the heavier rider, or simply anybody wanting just that little bit more stability in their ride.
Better still, it has the progressive rocker line of the Red 10′, which basically means it has a lot of curve preshaped in to it, making it very very nice indeed for surfing. It will catch even the smallest waves with ease, yet it has enough curve in both its rocker and its plan shape to be really quite comfortable in medium sized surf too.
Super stable, really easy to use, and with glide of the kind you only get from inflatable boards. Remember the first time you used a mountain bike with shock absorbers? That smoooooth feeling? That’s what we’re talking about here. This is a great all-round SUP for learning, cruising, surfing, exploring, and general family fun. You can pretty much do anything on it! Full EVA deck for under foot comfort and three moulded fins finish off this fantastic family cruiser, that’s super durable and still small enough to be packed away in a small bag at the end of the session.
All Red Air boards come with a carrying bag (with rucksack straps), a repair kit (not that you’ll need it but better safe than sorry), and a powerful h-tech pump fitted with a pressure gauge so you know when you’ve got enough air inside.
