HARTY in DONEGAL

Tush/Starboard rider is loving the new Kodes and Bolts in the Irish surf.

“Two weeks into my 5 week clinic tour of the North Atlantic coast and we’ve enjoyed just about every conceivable wind and wave condition. But so far I’ve just needed 2 boards for the job –  a 103 Kode fsw, a 92 Kode wave. I’m constantly shocked and amazed at the versatility of those boards.

Last night I was out on the 92ltr in proper bog and ride conditions – big crunching surf and 10 knots of wind. Within an hour it was up to 25 knots. I couldn’t be bothered to trek back to the van so down hauled the Rock 5.7 a bit more and just kept going. Both board and rig have an incredible range.

The confidence you get knowing the board will bottom out from the steepest drops and yet still gets up and goes in the slightest puff, takes you to the next level.”

Hart in praise of the Kode 92

Peter Hart has been out on the 2014 Kode recently and seems to be liking it!

Donegal, as usual, has come up with its usual wild mix of wind and waves. 40 knots and 7m, swell followed 2 days later by 15 knots side-off and perfect 4 ft glassy faces.

The Irish wave tour came to town last weekend; and as I met up with fellow team riders Timo and Finn Mullen, unprompted and open-mouthed, we all chorused, “what about the new Kodes then?!”

I used my new 92 for the first time the week before and couldn’t honestly believe what I was feeling – so fast and yet so ‘snappy.’ I was making sections that would normally wipe me with cries of “I knew I was good!” As Finn put it, the new Kodes have the speed of a single fin, the drive of a quad and the looseness of a twin, all bundled into one glorious bright orange package.

All the range have that quality but for me being 88kg,the 92 has brought a new dimension to the sketchy days and evened out the playing field for the bigger guys. Quite often the big boards we need to get out into position on light wind days are a bit stiff and clunky on the wave face. Last week I sailed the Magheroarty reef. It was offshore and really light inshore but howling further out. I put a 4.7 on the 92 and it worked brilliantly feeling like a board 10 trs less. 

The problem for Svein and the development team will be trying to improve on perfection!

Here is a video of Tiom Mullen ripping in Ireland on the 2014 Kode and Quad during September.
