Paige Heading to Puerto

Recently, Paige booked a last minute trip for a big swell heading to Puerto Escondido, Mexico and jumped on a plane within 48 hours. Sean made her an 8'4" in one day, the one board she was missing in her quiver. From the looks of it, it looks like she is going to score some solid 10 - 15 ft surf...

Cover of Kite Surf Magazine

We work very closely with Wainman Hawaii making all of their production kite/surf boards. We are stoked to announce Wainman's team rider Niccolo Porcella recently got the cover of Kite Surf Magazine. Niccolo usually rides his 5'10" Magnum model, which is the Lift shortboard. Niccolo is constantly pushing the limits of strapless kite boarding, especially doing crazy aerials.

Matt's summer quiver

Here is a great photo of Matt Meola's new summer quiver. Matt has quite a few trips lined up, including Peru for Sanuk's Operation Smile, Kustom Airstrike's Mentawais boat trip, and a trip filming with Track's magazine for a film coming out this winter. As a freesurfer who does not compete, Matt likes to mix it up with different styles of boards.

Micah's New Boards

Micah Nickens has been regarded as one of the best surfers to come out of Maui. Micah surfed professionally for years and is now the Dakine surf team manager. We are proud to have him riding our boards exclusively and helping promote the brand. Here is a photo of Micah picking up his new 5'9" SLUSHI and his 5'10" Procket.

Matt & Albee Kustom Airstrike

Albee Layer and Matt Meola were recently invited on the Kustom Airstrike boat trip in the Mentawai islands. They were two of six surfers who were invited on the trip, yet only five made it on the boat. Kelly Slater was invited but never made it.

Meet Marcio Freire

This is a pretty cool article on our SOS team rider Marcio Freire. The first photo is a pic of him in Paia with his 10'4" SUSHI gun that got destroyed on the rocks after a couple sessions of Marcio catching bombs!
