"I want to surf faster, higher and stronger than ever before. Riding the Traktors, I know I'll achieve my goals."
Kauli Vaast surfed in his first CT event as a 17-year-old local wildcard at Teahupo’o, and threaded tube after tube until one of his heroes, Jeremy Flores, knocked him out in the round before the quarters. Ever since then Kauli's surfing has grown up quickly, blowing minds from giant tubes to winning contests in tiny beachbreaks, and everything in between. After working with him sporadically for the last several years, we’re proud to officially welcome Kauli Vaast to the Traktor Team.

Before coming out to Australia for the CT, Conner and some our USA team including Oliver Kurtz, Brent Reilly and Heath Walker travelled to Texas for some board testing at the Waco wave pool. Using his regular Monsta 2020 shortboard as a starting point, Conner stepped down to a Monsta Box 2020 and a Bullseye in HYFI, before eventually going all the way down to our twin fins. Read More

After a long stint at home, most of the Traktor Team are heading to Hawaii with everything from fishes and shortboards to step ups and guns along for the ride. JS finished off batches of FMNII round pins for everyone just in time - the most ridden model each and every Hawaiian season. Pictured - JW's Pipe quiver.

With a batch of fresh boards, Conner jumped on a quick trip to Texas with his brother, dad and a few good friends to check out the now infamous Waco wave pool. And alongside plenty of hefty punts on the end section, we definitely found it refreshing to see Conner's heavy footed, rail burying approach compared to most of the other clips we've seen out of there this year. Clip & board breakdowns, below.

An instant classic from STAB, "The Mysterious Affair" is designed to showcase everything that happens when one of the best freesurfers in the world on alternate and retro equipment picks up a high performance shortboard. Considering Harrison Roaches' natural talent and tireless work ethic across an almost all types of waves and surfboards, we weren't too surprised with the results. But, it was incredible to see honest feedback from Harry as he clearly enjoyed the Raging Bull and found it to be every bit the forgiving, versatile all-rounder we designed it to be for absolutely everyone.
