  • CrazyFly ATV Kitesurf Surfboard Review

    For as long as I can remember I've been looking forever for a board that is good at it all instead of having to have several boards for different conditions, I think I have at last found it.

     

    Check out our Video of the ATV here: https://vimeo.com/136129929

    We've been using the ATV from CrazyFly quite a bit lately and have to say we love it. We've used it in onshore/cross shore  / light winds/ strong winds / strapped and strapless and it really does do it all with ease.

    See photo's taken from video the past few weeks here....

    I spoke to the guys at Iksurf mag before getting the board as I knew they'd tested it and they told me to just get it, they were that impressed with it.
    It's a very very smooth ride compared to most (nice concave on base) and it also has a very nice slightly thicker than normal soft deck pad which also helps the ride (surfboards often have extremely thin deck pads and as such after a while are hard on the soles of your feet and heels)

    The ATV comes standard with all you need, i.e. the Deck pads / Straps / 5 Fins so you don't have to fork out on more unexpected items, many boards you now have to pay for the extras even fins. (we would recommend a board bag though as with any surfboard)
    The 6' ATV also has enough volume in it to be used by the inexperienced and is a relatively stable board at 19 1/8" for learning gybes and tacks etc

    The five fins allow you to use it as standard Thruster or Quad, I've only used it as a thruster so far as this is what I'm used too.
    It's a custom made board i.e. not a pop out and as such is lighter and has that softer flex to it's ride not rigid and harsh like some but it also seems to be tougher than any other customs I've used.
    We weren't sure which CF board to choose for our own use and deffo believe we made the right choice...and as such I would not hesitate in recommending it to others.
     

     

  • The winds are returning, and we just got wet........

    The last month or two the winds here have been errm lacking to say the very least. There was a slight chance of wind for us today and early am it was showing 20mph so a few of us met at Rest Bay as hopeful as ever.

    Then the rain came, followed by the wind dropping right off a cliff edge!
    Damn!

    We sat in the Blast Bus and chatted for what was probably an hour or two, repeatedly checking the wind, eventually we walked down onto the beach to get a better idea as it was slightly harder to tell up in the car park as it was cross shore.

    Alex and I were keen to got straight on it, as we walked down ready to pump up it was now really blowing hard (weather station showed it as 30mph later when I checked) Anyway as soon as we'd pumped up our 9m's the wind quickly disappeared as quick as it had arrived!

    We decided to launch the kites anyway just to see if we could remember how to fly them, we still have the CrazyFly Tango here on demo so I was keen to try this too.

    We both eventually got in the water and attempted to kite but to be honest it was barely enough wind but I did manage a nice few smacks of some small waves and the sun came out so not such a bad time! Now we can't wait for some proper wind, hopefully very soon!
