  1. Duotone News Cape Town

    Cape Town has been regarded as a hotspot for kiteboarding and it's not surprising why.

  2. RRD News, Religion Mk9 Blkrbn

    BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK The Religion MK9 BLKRBN is a limited edition version of the Religion MK9 and the first LTD version of a kiteboarding kite in our history. This is a special kite range that will introduce all the RRD lovers to the Year 25 collection. In fact, this is the first product that opens the YEAR 25 collection to celebrate the RRD QCC ( Quarter Century Collection)! This unique version of the MK9 retains all of the same technology and performance as its bold counterpart but with a design suited for riders who want to keep a low profile with their equipment while making a big impact with their riding. The BLKRBN is a rare opportunity to make a statement in the most subtle manner while owning a piece of history. This sophisticated look will be released in a very limited quantity to those select few that act fast and take advantage of the Religion MK9 BLKRBN; RRD’s concealed weapon of choice. Be one of the very few riders to own a unique piece from RRD with an extremely limited production of only 200 units, numbered individually, produced for the entire world. Available from 30 January 2019 in the shops. VOICE TO THE EXPERTS Kite designer Werther Castelletti about the Religion MK9 BLKRBN; "The MK9 has undergone only minor changes compared to our most successful wave kite, the Religion MK8. The large sizes, 9m up to 12m, remain virtually the same while the smaller sizes, 8m down to 4m, have a revised leading edge and again the addition of a pulley. These changes on the smaller sizes allow the kite to self regulate in stronger conditions, which makes you hold on comfortable in stronger winds. Next to that it increases the wind range, and provides more hang time for those who still like to send it!" WHY IS THE STRONGEST KITE OUT THERE? Structural frame technology with a mix of 195 grms. Polyant Dacron and light weight D2 Techno Force™ Double Ripstop Internal and external extra reinforcements on every leading edge panel Exclusive D2 Techno Force™ Double Ripstop reinforcement panels sewn at 45° on week areas Kevlar struts tail Reinforced bridle attachments with external PU disks and an internal double adhesive Dacron patch EVA Scuff Protectors NEW FRONT LINE TRIM Also for the Religion MK9, BLKRBN we have added the new Front Line Trim, with a WAVE SETTING and a FREESTYLE WAVE SETTING. The freestyle wave setting pulls less on the harness, has a more direct bar feeling, de-powers the kite more when needed, and forces the kite to fly more towards the edge of the window which creates more lift! The wave setting is more suited towards purely riding in the surf with less bar pressure and a kite that sits deeper in the wind window, maximizing the drift for when riding down the line.

The 2019 designs evolve in shape and specification from moderately wide to narrow outlines, from higher to lower volumes, all of which correlate directly to wave height and freestyle capability. This collection covers an incredibly wide range of surf and wind conditions and allows for an even wider range of riding styles.

  4. THE NEW 2019 FX Over the last years, the world of Freestyle and Crossover kiting has evolved into an exciting genre in our sport. The 2019 Cabrinha FX is the go to kite for freestyle, kiteloops & massive air. What was once a very narrow and technical discipline is now a mix of technical tricks and massive aerial maneuvers, both hooked-in and unhooked. For this you need a kite with the sensitivity and ‘slack’ when unhooked and the ability to boost massive hooked-in kiteloops. The FX delivers on these two fronts and more with the power and handling to take your riding seriously. The 2019 FX Kite has three tuning options for riding styles. More depower provides maximum power delivery for boosting aerial tricks. More Line Slack provides the needed slack in the kite for unhooked tricks. The Standard / Factory setting gives you the happy medium for the perfect crossover ride. THE CABRINHA RIDER ACADEMY Earlier this year our top freestyle riders met in Italy for the first Cabrinha Rider Academy. The event focused on gear testing and R&D, content creation, training, photo shooting and media networking. Held at the famous ProKite Alby Rondina in Sicily, the riders put all the new 2019 gear through its paces. The riding was on another level, with an atmosphere intent on progression and feedback for future products.

  9. RRD Kiteboarding, Week 47 - Year 2017

    RRD Kiteboarding, Week 47 - Year 2017 Week 47 - Year 2017 The Salerosa V4 is available now! The coveted Salerosa is back with a splash of some bold new colors. The Salerosa was developed over the years for onshore conditions but from the V2 onwards, we moved it one step forward as a pure, all-round ripper from knee high to triple overhead waves. This board has a quad fin set up and was developed by Abel Lago. The quad fins make the V4 go fast down the line, gives it a tight grip on the wave, and makes it incredibly manoeuvrable. Combine this with a similar rocker of the Maquina, but using slightly more tail kick, and finished off with a squared-swallow tail; the result is a magnificent board that can dig deep, pivot on a dime, and break the fins loose off the lip for some legit kitesurfing!

Kiteboarding is just one of his passions. He also enjoys paragliding, going for rides with his e-bike, going out for delicious and healthy food and beautiful scenery. Armin doesn´t have a favorite spot. He likes every spot, it doesn´t matter whether on the water, snow or with the hydrofoil, but he prefers sunny and warm locations.
