We welcome Tamara to join our team and we wish her more successful competitions

The new Slalom-Pro-Carbon now available

By | News | No Comments

The Slalom-Pro-Carbon (SPC) was developed over the last 2 years by MUF founder and fin designer Rick Hanke and a slalom test team lead by Kurosh Kiani.

The SPC was designed especially for high speed. It features a narrower outline compared to the Slalom Race fin and a new thin low drag profile, making it extremely fast on all courses. The SPC is especially suited for racing in rough and overpowered conditions and accelerates great from jibes.

The extremely precise high-end RTM-production in Germany allows for the lightest weight possible (e.g. 230 gram for a 30 cm TT SPC) and all fins are absolutely identical in layup and performance.

Kurosh Kiani: “The new Slalom-Pro-Carbon is designed with maximum speed in mind. The foil has been thinned out, and the new combination of stiffness and rake has been fine tuned for optimum performance!“

Great success for the Maui Ultra Fins Kite Surf Team on Sylt!

By | News | No Comments

The Maui Ultra Fins team riders Jan-Niklas Paasch, Jannis Maus Annet  and
Jan Bremer showed a great performance in the challenging conditions during
the Sylt Summer Opening 2016.

Annet Bremer was the one and only girl, competing in the men’s racing fleet.
She achieved a stunning 10th place. In the Formula Raceboard juniors
division Jan Bremer scored a second place, followed by Jan-Niklas Paasch in
third. Jan-Niklas also achieved a second place in the juniors Slalom Race
division.

The most successful Maui Ultra Fins rider was the reigning German Champion
Jannis Maus with a first place finish in the Formula Raceboard discipline
and a third place in the big air contest. Jannis reports:
“Starting of on Wednesday, riders first had challenging Eastern offshore
conditions on the island of Sylt. Although the weather was beautiful, we
were fighting hard out there with gusts blowing up to 25 knots. After 8
races, we were done for the day and finally fell into bed. Next day, the
Skippers’ Meeting was set for 10:00am with a first possible start for the
youth Slalom at 10:45, so there was a little more time to rest in the sun.
When racing started in the afternoon, we were able to complete 3 more races
and I was able to dominate all three of them.

With shifting winds ranging from moderate to strong north-western winds on
Friday, Freestyle was on schedule and continued until the end of
competition. Even there I could score a third place in the Big Air
discipline. So, I’m looking forward now to the next part of the German
championship on Fehmarn in the beginning of June.”

Good luck to our kite team for the summer tour!
