Big THANKS to the crew of SVEA for inviting us onboard for a day of race training in Newport, RI this past weekend. SVEA is the longest of the J Class yachts measuring 143ft. She was originally designed in 1937 to compete in the 1939 America's Cup - which never happened due to World War II, and therefore the project was abandoned. Now 80 years later, SVEA is a classic design built with modern technology and rigging, completed just in time for the recent J Class regatta held alongside the America's Cup in Bermuda. They had 7 of these monsters on the starting line with very tight racing. SVEA sails with 30 crew. Most of those people also kite, surf or both. We're stoked there's a big group of SVEA's crew headed to REAL this week to "sail" on much smaller "boats" right out of our backyard. 143ft down to 143cm is a big change right?! Step aboard SVEA by swiping 👈🏼. @newportshipyard  @north_sails @mustoclothing @sailingworldmag @sailing_anarchy @sailsexy @oakley @kaenon @yachtingworldmagazine @outsidemagazine @rawelementsusa @patagonia @patagonia_surf @dubarryofireland
The most barreled human on the planet? Or did he carry the Skeleton Bay virus back to Cape Hatteras and infect our waters? REAL teamrider @brettbarley today ...or yesterday ...or just about every day. Frame grab @jeffrey.oneil
This one stopped us in our tracks on the way out the door today. Not sure they'll make it to our website before they sell out. Call the shop and we'll ship it anywhere for Christmas 🎄 252-987-6000. @yeti #prettyinpink #limitededition
Namotu Session Report #2: The next morning (our first full day on @namotu ), we woke up early and headed to #Cloudbreak. With our surf forecast starting at 3-4ft and then 4-6ft, it was nice getting some "warm up" sessions before the biggest part of the swell hit later in the week: 8-12ft with occ. 15ft. Cloudbreak is a 15 minute panga ride from Namotu. @jasonslezak also got the opportunity to kite this wave later in the week when the trade winds filled in. Surfing Cloudbreak is all about getting barreled, and our total frother @corylermo was first off the boat and straight into the tube claiming the first keg of the trip. Cory's riding a stock dim @pyzelsurfboards #Ghost 6'0, which he also rode at #Restaurants later in the trip. #LiquidForceNamotu @liquidforcekites 📷 @owenphoto
SW winds every day making it feel like June or July? We've been enjoying the run. REAL Kiteboarding Coach @follow_the_leder #REALsliderpark 📷 @waclo23 #WeMakeNewRidersEveryDay
Namotu Session Report #1: After 33 hours of travel, we landed on @namotu and surfed this wave right out front of Wanga's Beach Bar. It's called Namotu Lefts. It's the perfect way to wash off the jet lag and also an excellent kitesurf wave when the wind picks up. Most people think of Fiji as expert only barrels, but this wave and the right on the other side of the island called "Pools" are accessible to novice to intermediate surfers. You can see them both from the resort, so it's an easy check for a quick session. #NamotuLefts has a bit of slope to it, so it works best with flatter shortboards, fish and longboards. During the week, we surfed the following boards on this wave with great results: @lostsurfboards #BabbyBuggy, #VoodooChild and #EZup, @rustysurfboards #Smoothie, @christensonsurfboards #Nautilus and #Cbucket. These photos are from session #1 with Trip Forman riding the Christenson C-Bucket. 📷 @owenphoto #LiquidForceNamotu @liquidforcekites #truckplaneplaneplanebusbusboatsurf
