Official training day









Hey all today was official training day on the buseater wave where the competition will be tomorrow. Every country was designated an exclusive time on the wave relevant to the number in the team. As the nz team is small we were paired up with Sweden and had the 1pm time for an hour.



-Yappa- Pan-am

Yappa - pistol Flip

- Brendan Bayly- Air blunt


(BLISS-STICK 'RAD-180')

For anyone out there wanting to know what this boat is like I definatly think this boat is great!
It is not as fast down the face of the wave as the RAD series but makes up for that in its potential to get big bounceas it realeases from the wave with ease. Its shorter than all the rads but added volume in the cockpit giving more space for larger boaters and a more stable body position.
With a new rail design this boat carves round the wave smoothly and releases well. A great feature to this boat is that is surfs backwards a lot better than the rad.
More updates from the boat soon.




-Nick Boyes- clean blunt

Josh neilson- tow in
