hi

can you buy individual digital copies of the german surf magazine?
or the test reports e.g. latest 4.2 wave sail test??

(assuming not living in germany)

The android app is called 'SURF'

Download, install, buy the issue that you want to read for aud$5.99.

Copy german text and use google translate to read.

Awesome test reviews as they present rated comparisons between the tested products.

Probably worth pasting the graphs and text into a fresh google sheets document (rather than continually translating every time I go back to read a graph or something!)

I think you can also buy from the publisher website but it seemed easier to use the android app to buy the copy.

Guess you found this then ...
www.delius-klasing.de/surf
www.delius-klasing.de/abo-shop/?zeitschrift=251

If there are not english pages, then use Chrome and the auto-translate. Not exactly sure of the 'digital' format.

Take any auto-translater with a pinch of salt.
You may use them as a starting point, but not more than that. If things aren't clear (which I expect to happen), I can offer some help. I can't probably spare the time for a full translation of the test, though.
Cheers, Sven

Edit: I might have the mag somewhere under my bed and will go on a search mission tonight.

Example ... seems fine to me .. by the way, I find the comparison graphs the most useful and these only need translation of the title.

Experienced Wave hare will love the Pyramid, whether on the Baltic or Maui! The Pyramid needs more wind and ability than the Easy-Going-Boards of the group, but then accelerates powerfully and runs powered fast and free. On the wave, the Quatro sets the standard in terms of maneuverability and variability - pulling a wide-carved turn tight and vertical to the lip of the shaft, is possible with the board playfully and with the least possible use of force. The board on the edge, however, requires a good technique when carving, ie body template. Who stands upright on deck and drives "B?gelchen", parks quickly on the narrow stern in the bottom turn and can stabilize the edge less well. However, experts can draw the board from the complete range of Wavemoves and crashing, vertical turns. surf Conclusion: A radical concept for experienced Waver! Due to good acceleration, the radical board is not out of place on the Baltic Sea either ...


Can the new grip cover the same area of ??application as its predecessors, Quad and TriWave? After extensively testing the grip, we can say: he can! Even compared to the sometimes larger-volume competition, the board glides smoothly and reminds of its predecessor TriWave with its rather subdued water position and good smoothness. Stand position, loops, pads - everything fits in the Fanatic and you immediately feel comfortable on the deck. Simple and uncomplicated, the board is also on the wave, he draws - the name is program here - even in front of big and gruff knockers with the best grip on the edge. In addition, it can be controlled at any time variably and smoothly perpendicular to the wave lip - best conditions for crashing cutbacks and all Wavemoves. The fact that the grip takes the speed properly through the turn and can be radically and tightly rotated even before small Baltic Sea waves, completes the huge application area. surf conclusion: A big litter from Fanatic ...

Hmm .. let me just open the Surf app and check ... Only the Goya Custom Pro Quad 89 and no Simmer in the Dec 17 test.

They did test the Goya Thruster 86, verdict was it's a perfect Allrounder, the worthy successor of the 2017 and earlier Quads, while the 2018+ Quads are more radical and sophisticated.
The CT was highly rated for early planning and carrying speed through the turns while being not the most radical, but radical enough for tight front- and backfoot turns.

Oh yes ... In the Surf issue 11/12-2018, they tested the Goya Thruster. I'm going to buy that issue right now and start google translating

Just bought and reading now! Nice.

The Surf tests are usually a good starting point for your gear decisions.
But take the Surf tests with a little (and i mean only a little) grain of salt, especially if you have to decide between two products tested with about the same results.
Usually the brand with less adds in the mag has the edge then.
As always the glas could be half full or half empty when you describe it.
