What is Airstyle?

Posted by kite2012 On June - 16 - 2012

Toby Braeuer is probably the one man in this world that best can describe what Airstyle really is. Airstyle, also known as old school, is a kiteboarding style that has been overlooked behind freestyle and wakestyle. It seems like the forgotten airstyle is about to become popular again, which I think many of us old tarts will appreciate =)

This video btw is pretty awesome! The tricks that Toby pulls of are just insane!

Ben Wilson teach us to ride barrelled

Posted by kite2012 On April - 11 - 2012

I think Ben Wilson’s educational videos are great! First of all, Ben is talking with an Australian dialect that is something extra! Just listening to this guy talking is joyful :) The fact that Ben then makes a excellent teacher doesn’t make things worse! In this video, Ben is teaching us how to ride barrelled on your backhand. Many of us have never even tried wave surfing me included, but I really wonder what it feels like to ride a barrell and I´ll keep this video in mind in case I end up in a big fucking tube :)

Unhook is another educational video from Ben Wilson. If you’re about to start ride unhooked, then this video is a must see!

How to learn doing kite loops?

Posted by kite2012 On April - 3 - 2012

A Kite loop is one of the tricks that many kitesurfers dream of being able to do. A kite loop is associated with loads of power and it sure looks awe when someone is nailing a massive kite loop, no wonder every kitesurfer wants to learn this trick!
But something is holding you back… fear. The fear of being smashed face down in the water, the fear of busting your knees or fear of not being able to commit the kite loop is for sure deterrent for most of us.
So how on earth do you learn to make a kite loop? Do you just jump as high as possible, yank the bar, say a prayer and hope that you’ll come out in one piece? This is one option, but what is much smarter is to start practise kite loops in a safe manner, and how do you do that? Look at this highly educational video and you might soon have your first kite loop session!
