The Ultimate Waterman NZ!

Latest News // SUP // Surf // SURF



For the first time ever, the world’s finest watermen will come together in New Zealand to compete in 6 different surfing disciplines over eight days.The invitation-only contest will seek out the best conditions the country has to offer, creating a unique event that will test the eight elite competitors’ skill and endurance in some of the planet’s most stunning coastline.

Meteorologists and local experts will be employed to forecast conditions, with event officials using this information to determine where the best conditions for each discipline will be on any given day.

The Watermen and event crew will then drive or fly, either by plane or helicopter from the hub in Auckland to each selected discipline location, adopting a “guerrilla-like” approach with high intensity, flexibility and manoeuvrability.

With wider mass-participation and exhibition events all based at a hub site on the Auckland waterfront, The Ultimate Waterman is sure to be a global extreme sport sensation.

The Watermen will be joined on tour by high profile guest commentators/experts such as Big Wave Pioneer Ross Clarke-Jones. Ross brings much experience and integrity to this unique event through his expert analysis and comments.

The event also has the backing of Hawaiian Ambassadors Titus Kinimaka and Laird Hamilton.

Agenda Comp Mal

Agenda Featured Board Review

Surf // SURF


RD brought an Agenda Comp Volume 9’0″ Mal from us a little while ago and this is what he had to say about it:

 You gave me “The Board” from now on I can finally search for “The Ride”!

I’m 1.84m, 102Kg, with a bit of extra weight but still fit and I don’t have the best surfing technique in the world :) now I can do so much more on my longboard!
Briefly it’s either a classic noserider/log if you want and a progressive longboard if you need :)
What size would you expect knowing my weight? Well… this is only 9’0″ x 23 3/4 x 3 1/8, 77 cubic litres of only 6.8 Kg – a Golden Ratio!
  • It paddles like a dream – I’ve heard this many times but what I say now it’s the real thing. I can handle now a crowded line-up with big waves and a pack of short boarders, It’s not about taking off early it’s about getting faster into position!
  • I can duck dive it, that’s really cool! Choppy water feels more stable, rips are not concerning any more :)
  • It’s so fast, it accelerates easy so I fly into the wave and through the dead sections having plenty of time to wait for a reform, you don’t feel a volume that floats, you feel a shape that glides – it is the Golden Ratio for me!
  • It is very stable, it won’t flip easy through turbulence and at least gives enough time to adjust
  • It’s forgiving, if you are not on the right part of the deck or use the right part of the rail when you approach a section you still won’t wipe out – again it gives you time to adjust
  • It’s so responsive I feel for the first time I can link turns easy like on a shortboard and I can feel like touching the wave through the deck always ready to negotiate;
  • It finds the trim line by itself! I only need to “step off”/not go against and let it trim, it locks in into the pocket on the trim line then you can simply walk to the nose!
  • I can accelerate with turns I can do speed turns besides the longboard way to accelerate by going close to the nose in front of the wave.
  • It’s predictable, it won’t just accelerate and dump you off, it feels safe enough to start cross stepping, hang 5/10 are not difficult any more and you can start turning cause you know what to expect and funny I can have now a narrow relaxed longboarder stance… because I know what to expect!
  • It’s an awesome noserider and at the same time the most progressive longboard I’ve seen so far.
According to my current skill level I can’t find anything that I would improve on this board Agenda High Volume Mal and I’m looking forward to the Surf Club competitions :)
Other boards I used so far:
- 9’0″ Walden Magic 3 – still have that one also love it but it’s slow/not fun in smaller messy surf
- 9’6″ BlackHawk Malibu – big volume epoxy SLX
- 9’4″ Harbour Diamond Tail – high performance TufLite model
- 9″6″ OceanX Tupai – narrow SUP, pretty good used as longboard
- 9’0″ Napapa – good on nice big waves otherwise so slow
- 9’4″ Bic Nat Young
- 9’6″ Primal Nat Young
- and also few shortboards and a fish :)
