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.

Review Starboard Pro 2019
Gama Starboard Pro 2019


At HoeNalu we have already received some models of the new Starboard Pro 2019 range and we can assure you that they will not leave you indifferent.

This year we find very notable changes in the most surfing range of Starboard. Different sizes and a quite important renewal of the shape that affects most of the design, from the nose trimmed to the channels in the tail, through the reduced edges and by a flatter stance.

The Tiki brand, and its team of riders, therefore make a lot of improvements in the SUP Starboard Pro 2019 boards, in order to achieve even better performance in all types of waves. In this post we will give you a review of all the novelties offered by the range, and that we have been pleasantly surprised.
Review Fanatic Strike 2019
Arthur Arutkin con la nueva Strike 2019

The Stand Up Paddle racing environment, especially in the last two years, has evolved a lot. Athletes are increasingly better prepared, they do specific training to improve the technique of paddling and go faster than ever, demanding boards that respond to their demands in the water. No stranger to these questions, the Fanatic development team was working in collaboration with its top rider, the French Arthur Arutkin, until obtaining a new range of race boards that suits to the needs of all those SUPers who want a board that gives them the maximum performance in competition

In this way, the Austrian brand has created the new Blitz model, and has completely redesigned the Falcon and the Strike models. The first is designed as an easy board that adapts to any water condition, the Falcon is the board for downwinds and hard conditions, and finally the Strike is the option for flat water. The latter is the one we analyzed in this week's post, because the 2019 model has been a complete metamorphosis of this board if we compare it with its predecessor, and implies an evolution in the concept of flatwater boards, which can be used in any condition, increasing the speed considerably, thanks to its renewed design. 

Discover the new Fanatic Strike 2019 in its two sizes: 14'x21.5" and 14'x25" a very important option if you are thinking about changing your competition board or want to start in the SUP racing environment.
