Pro slalom windsurfer Kursh Kiani brings us his latest episode titled “Homeless” shares what he has been up to since PWA Korea, and his nomadic lifestyle.
The summer is really upon is in Europe, and this month of crazyness I was able to catch with my little cam going around like a madman from place to place. In this months episode of my TV series, I have focused on the fact, that I, for the moment live a life without any base staying on the road constantly.
Over these few minutes, I have tried to share my experiences and thoughts along the way going through London, Weymouth, Copenhagen, Marseille and Costa Brava.
In this episode, I have only had the personal touch in mind. I have gathered whichever clip I had from going around and put it together along with my thoughts, and tried to set the vibe of how it is being me at the moment. – Kurosh Kiani
The Aloha Classic began in 1984 and ran until 2006, where it was the final event of the Pro World Tour Season. This video from 1985 captures the multi-discipline competition including Slalom, Wave and Expression Session. In 1985 Alan Cadiz won the event, but there was no shortage of big names from the 80’s including Mike Waltze, Ian Boyd, Mark Angulo, and more!
Here’s hoping the event returns!

The 2014 Magic Ride is a brand new board in JP’s lineup. The board looks to fit between fits between freeride and the classic shortboard, with a short, wide and thin shape. Check out this video from the JP photoshoot on Maui with action from Julie Kornum and Andy “Bubble” Chambers. Shaper Werner Gnigler explains the new shape with Andy Chambers.
This is an all-new, thrilling and exciting concept of extra wide, short and thin freeride boards within the JP line. It features so far unseen early planing with the easiest jibing possible. The main difference to comparable boards from our competition is, that they really give you an electrifying feel which you normally only get from much smaller boards. Their early planing and top speed is also unmatched in their class. – JP Marekting
