Sebastian Wagner Kitesurfing

Posted by kite2012 On July - 29 - 2012

Sebastian Wagner kitesurfing somewhere… looks like a nice spot where the location now is. Wouldn’t mind to kitesurf myself right now, but I´m stuck in a super hot train in the middle of Sweden. Luckily the train is equipped with internet so I at least can watch some kite videos =)

Epic Kites Attack!!

Posted by kite2012 On July - 25 - 2012

Dimitri Maramenides is back with a new kickass video! Dimitri delivers as usual with some insane old school tricks, backrool kiteloops and other crazy tricks that for an intermediate rider you and me probably would end with a broken rib or two :P

Posted by kite2012 On July - 18 - 2012

Reno Romeau has been travelling around the world for 5 years, kiteboarding at hundreds of different spots, but his favourite spot is called “Arubinha” in Rio de Janeiro. Check this video and you might understand why, the spot looks pretty awesome!

PKRA 2012 Germany

Posted by kite2012 On July - 16 - 2012

Guess who won the final in the PKRA competition in Germany this year? Yes, you guessed right, Youri Zoon! However, it was a close call between Youri and his main threats Alex Pastor and Kevin Langeree. I wonder how long he will be able to keep the #1 ranking…

Susi Mai naked!!

Posted by kite2012 On July - 6 - 2012

Well, at least almost naked, considering that the only thing covering her body is a thin layer of paint. So all of you who wonders what Susi Mai looks like under the wetsuit, take a look at this ;)

Florian Daubos Kiteboarding in the Carribean Sea

Posted by kite2012 On July - 4 - 2012

Another funny video from Naish, filmed in the San Blas archipelago in the Caribbean sea, featuring Florian Daubos getting wasted and kiteboarding.
Dreaming about kiteboarding is something I do quite often. I suppose you do that as well now and then :) Kiteboarding with a hangover happens to me some times as well, is there a better way to wake up and freshen up after a wet night? Florian Daubos is probably not an exception and I think this is a video which may well have happened to him in real life! Those kids he picks up on board must be in heaven! :)
Some facts about the San Blas archipelago. This beautiful place consist of 360 smaller island spread along the Panamanian coast. The people that live here is called Kunas, friendly indians that live under simple conditions without cars, computers, iphones and all other technical shit which is integral to our lives, and the Kunas seem to be very happy living their life like that, the natural way of living a life. I think I could swap my apartment for an island or two in the San Blas archipelago, if I just could bring my kite :P

Naish Kiteboarding in Maui

Posted by kite2012 On July - 4 - 2012

Here is a really nice video with some of the best riders in the Naish team. Watching Shawn Richman, Jesse Richman and Kai Lenny in this video is truly inspiring! Impressive to see them pull of those crazy tricks and watching Kai Lenny ride the monster waves in Maui is always a plessure!
