Four words to start off this report sound no better than “7 days of wind”. Right out of the blocks, kiters were powered on 12m-15m kites and it only got windier throughout the week. By mid week, riders were using 9m-12m kites and the 8m’s even came out for a session or two.

The Stretch It spans the size gap between shortboards and longboards, with a blend of performance from both. Available in sizes 6’8 up to 8’10, The IT can be the workhorse in anyone’s surfboard quiver with excellent performance in a wide range of waves and surfer size and abilities. This category and size range of surfboards is normally reserved for “recreational shapes”, such as funboards, mini tankers etc. The Stretch It breaks out of that mold with high performance surfing in a size that mere mortals can paddle, catch waves on and enjoy!

The 2009 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing is underway on the North Shore of Oahu. Last week saw the completion of the O’neill World Cup of Surfing: Sunset Beach, HI in maxing conditions! Three separate solid NW swells hit the North Shore perfectly between the November 24th opening day of the contest window and the December 4th Finals heat. The cleanest and most organized of the three swells occurred on the final day of the tournament. After spending the morning surfing just up the reef from Sunset at the Backyards I pedaled to Sunset Beach to catch the final few heats of the event.
