Quatro 2016 Windsurf Boards First Look!

We got our first glance of the Quatro 2016 Windsurf Boards today and man are we excited! The Quatro range has been in such a strong place for years that it has been a very long time since we saw a lot of changes in one season! For 2016 though Keith Teboul has worked on some industry leading concepts that will definitely be setting the trend for the rest of the windsurfing world!

Quatro 2016 Shaper Keith Teboul

Keith Teboul’s first hand experience with his shapes is what keeps Quatro at the very front of Wave Board development.

2016 Quatro Pyramid

2016 Quatro Pyramid

The Pyramid is the pinnacle of Wave sailing performance. It is Quatro’s cutting edge performance design. The best of the best.

The first and most exciting board perhaps in the entire industry is the brand new 2016 Quatro Pyramid! Quatro say it is a complete redesign of the massively successful 2015 Pyramid shape. The new board is a little shorter in length with slightly reduced nose width and a slight increase in tail width. This slightly increased tail width along with an increased thickness through the stance has allowed Quatro to move the rider back which gives unrivalled reactivity under the back foot! The swallow tail incorporated in the new design is well loved in the surfing world and provides superior hold through a full rail turn. The fin postitioning has been tweaked and the bottom shape is single to double to vee off the tail. This board is uncompromising, the shape looks sharp and performance driven and Keith Teboul cannot speak highly enough of it’s surfing prowess! We’re so excited to get our feet on this new board and to see the gap between windsurfing and surfing reduced once again. If there’s one board to get excited about this year it’s this!

2016 Quatro Cube

2016 Quatro Cube

The Cube has been the go to board for Levi Siver for years and the latest model is a continuation of Levi’s unrivalled style!

Quatro describe this board as a “shorter, more compact rocket of a quad” designed for speed and maneuverability. They say they have completely redesigned this board from the outline to the bottom contour to the profile flow.
The board has a fuller nose and profile thickness to compensate for it’s shorter length. The increase in profile thickness, much like the 2016 Pyramid, allows for the rider to be moved back on the board giving you the closest foot to tail rear strap position. This makes the board ultra reactive! A straighter rocker coupled with a vee with double bottom shape throughout makes this board lightning fast to plane and the compact shape along with the pushed back strap position increases it’s turning ability. Keith Teboul says “This board with it’s quad fins, fast rocker, redesigned outline and thicker profile allows you to shred in all sorts of varying conditions, from side off Ho’okipa to onshore Pozo. The best of both worlds put into one new quad design!” The Cube has been Quatro’s go to wave board for a few years now and has always won test reviews against any competition. It’ll be interesting to see and feel with the new improvements just how much further ahead this board will sit from the pack.

2016 Quatro Mono

2016 Quatro Mono

Perhaps surprisingly, the third all new board for 2016 is a single fin!

This came as a surprise to us too! With the trend of boards getting smaller and multi fin popularity we were surprised to see Keith Teboul reveal the 2016 Quatro Mono as his third new shape in the range. What Keith say’s is that “The Quatro Mono is the ideal choice for sailors looking for the classic smooth and stable feel, quick acceleration, unlimited top end speed and adaptability that the single fin boards provide”. It’s great to see a board like this coming from the HQ of the world’s most advanced Windsurf Wave Boards. It can be a little stressful keeping up with the latest developments in wave board design and with the 2016 Mono KT has taken us back to what made windsurfing great in the first place. We’re keen to get this board on the water and once again experience the thrilling speed and smooth carving abilities of the traditional single fin board!

Other News

The Sphere and Tetra shapes from 2015 remain unchanged for 2016 except for a new size in the Sphere of 67 litres. This cements Keith’s attitude that unless his alterations improve a shape it doesn’t get changed!

2016 Quatro SUP Boards

2016 Quatro Glide Air SUP

The Glide Air is a perfect all round inflatable SUP!

2016 Quatro Roam Air SUP

The Roam Air is a distance cruiser in a bag!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inflatable SUP boards are easily the most popular way for people to get on the water nowadays! Quatro know this and have carefully applied their years of board making knowledge to develop inflatable boards that share the characteristics of their solid counterparts. The glide is a mimic of KT’s user friendly wave shape designed to be the perfect all round leisure SUP. Small waves, coastal paddles and fun with the family is what this board is all about. With the Roam KT chose to capture the spirit of coastal explorers and give them a board that is fast to paddle, easy to stand on and practical to get to and from their next adventure. We’re certain these shapes will be highly successful as they are aimed at the two best area’s for inflatable SUP’s; simple enjoyment and unrestricted exploration!

Seen something you like?

We know that by now you’re probably salivating over the thought of getting your feet on one of these new boards! We are! But official release dates are not until August/September 2016. The moment they’re available though full details including promo vids and pictures will be available on our Quatro homepage.

Thank you for reading and we’ll see you on the water ;)

GoPro users can smile too as the Soloshot 2 tripod will hold almost all action cameras!

Is Soloshot 2 the new GoPro?

The Soloshot 2 is a revolutionary step in action sports footage. Just like the GoPro did when it first came out the Soloshot 2 has opened up an entirely new concept for every sports enthusiast in the world. Whilst the market is slowly flooding with first person action camera’s the Soloshot 2 stands alone allowing you to get third person footage just as if you had you own personal camera man! This incredible camera tripod can hold most cameras including action cameras and DSLRs and rotate them, tilt them and even operate the zoom to ensure they capture the perfect footage of you every time you head onto the water!

The way the tripod works is to have a clever base unit underneath the camera which is tracking a transmitter tag worn on an armband by the user. This tag is waterproof, bash proof and generally sport proof! Once you have paired up the tag with the transmitter you can move freely within a 2000ft distance at speeds of up to 180mph and constantly be tracked by your camera! As an extra option you can buy your Soloshot 2 with the Camera Controller. This clever devise gives the tag wearer a range of options when it comes to recording. They can stop and start the recording, use multiple tags to capture footage of their friends at the same time and use multiple tripods to get more angles of themselves. With the camera controller connected the Soloshot 2 can zoom your camera in and out giving you the best possible footage of every session.

Another clever addition to the Soloshot 2 capabilities is barrel mode. By using this setting on the base unit the tripod will track your speed and continue to follow your projected ride as you sit inside the barrel on a wave. Once you exit the Soloshot 2 immediately picks you up again. You also needn’t worry about security as the Soloshot 2 has slots for putting a locking cable through so you can lock both the tripod and camera to a post or tree and leave it there with confidence.

We’ve been using and selling the Soloshot 2 for a while now and the more we get to know this product the better it becomes. We’ve used it for windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing and SUPing and the footage everytime has been awesome! Our customers have used the Soloshot to shoot even more including rock climbing, paragliding, horse riding and much more! It’s time you joined the fun and starting scoring perfect footage of your own sessions!

We’re stoked with the Soloshot 2 and definitely believe that this is where self photography is at right now! Is Soloshot 2 the new GoPro? No, it’s in a league of it’s own! Check out our Soloshot page for all of the package deals and product information.

Boylo’s Wave of the Winter Winner Steve Thorpe!

Boylos Wave of the WinterAfter a great Wave of the Winter competition we have a winner, Steve Thorpe! Boylo’s team member Jake Patrick met up with Steve for a quick interview with the the 2014/15 champion!

When did you decide the forecast was go? were you set on one spot or did you look around?

“I got a heads up from Aleksy Gayda and Jony Price. Jony’s from Ireland so keeps an eye on the West coast forecasts and saw this solid one coming! We did a lot of driving over the two days all over Mayo, Leitrim, Sligo and Donegal. Day 1 was a nice warm up in smaller clean point break waves. Sunday was the big day, 7m @ 16s!”

How was the journey over and who were you with?

“I went over with Aleksy as foot passengers in the Holyhead/Dublin ferry. Bargain £60 each. Then Jony picked us up in his van.”

Boylo's Wave of the Winter Winner Steve Thorpe

Steve and Aleksy Gayda’s kit rigged and ready outside Jony Price’s van. Aleksy, Jony and Steve were all riding K4Fins setups on this massive day!

Were conditions ideal or tricky? What equipment were you using?

“We sailed at Magheroarty, the easiest and most reliable spot going. It was pretty tricky though due to the size of the swell and the amount of wind! It was 3.7 weather cross shore so there was some pretty huge chop on the faces to contend with. The waves which normally break with a channel on the reef were occasionally closing out across the bay. It was pretty hard to line up the best place on the waves as you were almost playing with the size of a football pitch, then going mach ten to keep up with the wave and having extra speed to reposition was tricky due to the chop! So not that easy! I’d prefer a nice clean predictable mechanical big barrel anytime! But big and wild is always fun too :)
Kit used was my 75ltr twin with k4fins Stubbies and my 4m Firelight, due to being restricted to what I could carry over. Otherwise a 3.7 and my flatter rockered 85 would have been awesome!”

Boylo's Wave of the Winter Winner Steve Thorpe

Aleksy Gayda face to face with one of those massive width of the bay closeouts!

Finally please just talk us through the rides, for us mortals it’s hard to imagine riding waves like that, could you try and paint the picture?

“Even when it’s a big day like this you’re always trying to find the biggest lumps on the horizon -nothing worse than riding in on a tiddler then gybing off it and getting obliterated by the set wave behind. So having found a big one it’s then pedal to the metal to try and stay in front of it -bigger waves always travel noticeably faster. The real tricky part was it being super windy cross shore with big chop, so to go ‘down the line’ and keep up with the breaking part of the wave was really tough -just sheeting in was tricky!. So it was kind of like a speed-sailing day with some 2ft chop thrown in! I think between Aleksy and myself we missed quite a few rides due to not being able to keep up with the open face, they were racing away if the chop slowed you down even on our twinnies. Great fun to be going flat out and chasing the wave, trying to get back up to the top for the odd mush bash!”

Boylo's Wave of the Winter winner Steve Thorpe!

Steve charging double mast high conditions with precision and control! A worthy winner of Boylo’s Wave of the Winter!

“Eventually I got caught by a big one and it was game over -massive swim all the way in after the gear and a torn sail.”

Boylo's Wave of the Winter Prize

Big thanks to the support from all of the brands for such an awesome prize! Next year if you go big this could all be yours!

“I wanna say a Huge thanks to Boylo’s for running the comp and to the brands for sorting out an amazing prize haul! I’m so stoked! And thanks to Jony Price for taking the pics – he’s getting the wetsuit :) Roll on next winter :)

It’s been an awesome competition and it’s great to have such a worthy winner. But we were stoked to see so many people braving the cold and getting out there to show us that these isles are capable of some awesome conditions! Make sure you keep hitting the water and please send any piccy’s or vids of your action to info@boylos.co.uk and we’ll get you online! See you on the water!

K4 Fins the rise and rise of a british brand

With all of the breezy conditions recently it’s been great to see a lot of people out on the water windsurfing! There’s nothing we love more than sails on the water and smiles on faces! Something that we’re noticing is the amount of bright yellow fins seen underneath wave and freestyle boards! The popularity of K4 Fins is sky high and we wanted to look at how K4 are managing to slowly but surely take over the wave and freestyle market not just here in the UK but globally!

Pedigree

One thing that goes without question is the performance pedigree that K4 Fins have. The founder, Steve Thorpe, is known national and globally as an absolute charger! He regularly travels the length of the British Isles in search of the most hardcore wave sailing conditions. As I type in fact Steve is in Ireland on a spur of the moment trip chasing some of the most full adrenaline conditions in the world! It is from Steve’s lust for performance windsurfing that the fins were born. Unsatisfied with what was on offer on the market Steve set about building new fins for his wave board that would offer him the turning capabilities that he was after, soon after the K4 Fins flex was born.

Steve Thorpe

K4 Fins founder Steve Thorpe testing out his latest fins at UK Big Wave spot ‘The Cribbar’!

Performance

The performance that Steve has strived to perfect in the K4 Fins is almost faultless. When generally wave riding they provide a predictable and forgiving ride with the flex of the fins working with your movements and pressures you put through your feet. When landing big jumps the fins again flex and this helps you be in more control when first hitting the water rather than skidding out. Waveriding is where the fins really excel though and this is what K4 have to say about the performance: “In your bottom turn the flex of the fins allow you to drive them hard and fast. As you’re going through the bottom turn and your speed starts to drop off the fins give you something back. All that ‘stored’ energy from flex is given back to you when you need it most. In doing so you don’t get stuck through your turn. You can power all the way through to the lip and smack it at full velocity.” This isn’t just marketing gobble, all of the team here have made the transfer from conventional G10′s to the new K4 Fins setups and all of us swear by the performance benefits!

K4 Fins

The harder you push through the bottom turn the more drive the fins will give you to unleash at the top!

Pro riders

To prove the point of the performance of the K4 Fins you need only look at their current team. This is no accumulation of small local heroes. The K4 Fins team includes some of the biggest names in windsurfing right now including: Graham Ezzy, Leon Jamaer, Omar Sanchez, Alastair Mcleod, Emilio Galindo, Andy ‘Bubble’ Chambers, Aleksy Gayda, Loick LeSauvage and many more! PWA competitors in wave and freestyle are using the fins to push their own competitive level to podium winning heights! Perhaps the most A-List name of all is Graham Ezzy. Graham chose to join the team a few years ago and has since released his own signature model fins which he uses to win professional tour competitions in Ho’okipa and charge massive Jaws!!!

Graham Ezzy

Pro team rider Graham Ezzy praises the fins for his performance in the PWA Mauii event saying “‘My flexible K4 fins give me a massive advantage over most of the other riders who use stiff G10 fins. You can see it in my carves– I can keep speed as I redirect.”

Price

You would think that with the added performance of the fins as well as the top flight team names, K4 Fins would cost you a fortune and far more than their lesser performance G10 rivals. You would be wrong. K4 Fins have added performance proven by the backing of many of the best windsurfers in the world and the cost less than any alternative we have found on the market! A set of Quad rears costs £47.50 and the fronts £22.50! Which means that for the price of 1 of the G10 competitors fins you can have an all new setup of the highest performance fins on the market!

K4 Fins

The affordability of K4 Fins means that now everyone can experiment with the best setups for their boards without breaking the bank!

Purchase

It’s actually very easy to see why we’re seeing so many yellow finned boards on the water these days. With higher performance and lower cost why would anyone bother looking at any G10 versions? You can view our full range by clicking K4 fins

Boylo's Wave of the Winter

No matter what you use if you ride the best wave, you win!

Not got a camera man?

Not many of us have a buddy or family member keen to stand on the shore on a big day and wait for what could be your winning ride. If you find yourself in this cameraman-less position don’t worry as we sell the best gear for getting the perfect shots and videos of you doing your thing! If you want to make sure you capture the winning ride then purchasing a GoPro or Soloshot from our store could be the best thing you buy this winter!

Boylo's Wave of the Winter

Grab a GoPro Hero 4 for that epic personal view or the new Soloshot 2 automatic tripod for the ultimate camera man-esque footage!

So that’s it! We can’t wait to see the footage and pics, so get out there! Good luck and Go Big!

Soloshot 2 Automatic Tripod!

Soloshot are an ambitious new company that have completely changed the world of self photography! Much like the first GoPro camera was a game changer, the Soloshot Automatic Tripod has opened up a previously unexplored avenue within the watersports industry. First person angles make for great viewing but everybody knows that the best video’s come from having a dedicated camera man stood on the shore pointing the lens in the right direction. That’s why Soloshot decided to develop the very first automatic camera man. The Soloshot was born and the tripod blew the market wide open. Full automatic panning meant great footage without relying on anyone to hold the camera!

The Soloshot 2

Soloshot 2

The brand new Soloshot 2 is setting a new benchmark for self photography!

The all new Soloshot 2 Automatic Tripod is the evolution of the original model. Whereas the first tripod simply panned this new tripod has automatic Pan, Tilt and Zoom and is also capable of tracking multiple tags and switching between users depending on settings!

The tilt and zoom options on the new tripod create a more life-like footage capture. There are three main settings for the zoom and once you have chosen which of the three frame sizes you want the base unit will automatically track you and zoom in or out when you move closer or further away! On top of this amazing new tracking ability is the staggering amount of control that users now have over the camera. Whether it’s when to record or which settings they want the tripod to follow users can make changes simply by using the tag armband. Check out the video below to see just how much control and quality the new Soloshot offers:

Innitially developed by surfers the Soloshot 2 tripod is being used by more and more different sports athletes. Anyone who wants sharp constantly tracked footage of themselves performing whether as a training aid or for personal enjoyment needs to try one of these new tripods. With the pan, tilt and zoom tracking there isn’t a sport that the soloshot isn’t suitable for.

When can I get one?

Soloshot pride themselves on the quality of their products and the new tripod was heavily delayed to ensure that they could perfect every aspect of it’s design. The good news though is that Boylo’s had 2 brand new items preordered and we have just received them in store! We are offering a full package deal with the Base Unit, Camera Controller, Tripod and Tag all for just £446.99! Make sure you check out our Soloshot page on our website to order yours today!
