Hot Sails Maui Australia have just recently updated their website. It now includes new team rider profiles and some great pictures in the gallery section. Of course it still has the same great products and great prices that we all know Hot Sails for. The website can be accessed at http://hotsailsaustralia.com.au/
Luckily the NSWWA get to demo some of the absolute latest equipment from the best shapers in the world. Recently, we have been fortunate to demo a “hexo” board, shaped by an underground, boutique group of wavesailors who call their brand OKJE (pronounced Oak-Gee) after the four key sailors – Oli, Kai, Jason (not Polakow) and Ed. Before we get in to too much detail, we should point out that a “hexo” is what OKJE are phrasing their 6 finned board (as in hexagon). The design brief was straight forward, yet very hard to find the right solution that could be programmed into CAD. The brief was “design a board that had the lively feel, straight line speed, big drawn out turns of a single fin, the super snappy, exciting, brilliant frontside ability of a twin and the loose, grippy drive with top turn slide of a quad”. The one thing that wasn’t in the brief was to emulate the “fat boys” board, as OKJE had been reassured that this was covered off with a Gerroa specific 99ltr thruster.
