Finally we have the new Black Project Condor fin available on HoeNalu. The last fin by the hawaiian brand for 2020, developed by the World Champion, Connor Baxter.

The new Condor is the smallest fin of the whole range, it combines features of the Sonic and Tiger, maybe the most famous fins by Black Project, that have reached a lot of wins in the SUP competitions all over the world where the team members were competing. We can say the Condor is a hybrid between the Tiger and the Sonic.

What's Surfskate?

 Since a couple of years more than less, we are watching in the streets new skateboards that slide different as the classic ones. Also, they are wider, with an almost plain tail and no elevation in the nose, these boards are called surfskates. In the last half year, the number of this type of boards has grown strongly because they are really funny. The reason is clear, surfskates are boards ready for real surfing the streets

Surfskate is a variant of classical skateboarding. It shares the essence to go on a board with wheels, but they are very different in the way how they react with the asphalt and the behavior. If a classical skater rides on a surfskates, he or she will say to us that the boards don't seem like one to the other. Visually they share similar features in a first view but riding both, we will find a big difference. The classical skateboard has the main point on the tail, where the skater kicks to make the tricks, so the rear foot is who has the main performance. With the surfskate, the front foot becomes the main one becasue the front truck is where the action and power is made to move the board.

Iballa Ruano, capitana de la Selección Española de SUP

For almost all of us who practice water sports, especially windsurfing or paddlesurf, the name of Iballa is quickly related to that smiling face that the Canarian often gives us, but also to the elite sport at the highest level.

Both, Iballa and her sister Daida, have an enviable sports career. Between them, or what is the same, MorenoTwins, already accumulate a whopping 28 world titles in Windsurf. If we focus on Iballa, in addition to its 10 individual titles in wind, the last cropped a few days ago, we are also talking about a top world competitor in the SUP surfing mode.

This week we were able to carry out an interview with Iballa, for the ISA World SUP and Paddleboard World Championship to be held at the end of November in Riyue Bay, at the Chinese island of Hainan, and one more year she will be the captain of the Spanish Stand Up Paddle and Paddleboard Team.
