Kite Surfing in North Queensland

By |March 1st, 2016|

The winter season is the best time for kite surfing in North Queensland as the dangerous jellyfish are present during the summer months. Port Douglas Port Douglas works best in NE or SE winds. Most kite surfers set up and ride at the south end of Four Mile Beach, though the entire beach is kiteable. [...]

Never Summer 2016 Snowboard Reviews

By |January 28th, 2016|

Getting that first taste of mountain air and strapping a board to his feet while living and working as an Engineer in France turned everything upside down for Paul. A “normal” life no longer seemed acceptable, snowboarding was the only thing that mattered. Finally taking the plunge to ditch the rat race in 2013 he's [...]

Never Summer The West 2016 Review

By |January 28th, 2016|

I have one word for The West: WOW! This is without a doubt the best board I have ever ridden. There, I said it. Picture the scene: It's snowed like 25cm or so overnight, it's Thursday so the resort isn't too busy, it's primed to be one of the best days of the season so [...]

Never Summer Cobra 2016 Review

By |January 28th, 2016|

The Cobra is a flagship model for Never Summer and has a proud tradition of being one of the best boards out there, period. It's definitely aimed at powder riding first and foremost with a drawn out nose and blunted tail, set back stance and stiffer flex. I have known a number of Snowboard Instructors [...]

Never Summer Proto 2016 Review

By |January 28th, 2016|

This was the board I wanted the most, I was even close to buying it myself before my Boss told me to chill my beans when we heard of the demo fleet. I still love freestyle so I normally favour twin tip boards and the 157cm size is right in the middle for me. The [...]

Never Summer Snowtrooper 2016 Review

By |January 28th, 2016|

This was the surprise package of the lot for me. I felt of the 4 boards we have this would be 4th on my list, but I have found myself coming back to this board over and over again due to the varying nature of the conditions we have been getting in Fernie this season. [...]

Kite Surfing in Mid-Western Australia

By |January 4th, 2016|

The best winds in the mid-west are over summer (October-April) when the sea breeze blows strong S/SW winds and big swells almost every day. The winds in the mid-west are usually about 5-10 knots stronger than in the south. There are a ton of great kiting spots near Geraldton which is the only "big" town [...]
