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!

Why you must commit yourself while kitelooping…

Posted by kite2012 On July - 3 - 2012

Have you been thinking of start doing kiteloops ala Ruben Lenten style for the last year or so, but you never really had the balls to even give the kitelooping a try, having all stories with broken ribs, fucked up knees etc. in your mind. You have probably heard it 100 times before, the importance of fully commit yourself while kitelooping. An advice that you should follow unless you wanna end your kiteloop in an insane wipeout like this one! =P

Kai Lenny Episode 7

Posted by kite2012 On June - 28 - 2012

Here is a nice video with Kai Lenny and his fellow Naish riders Sam Light, Rick Jensen, and Jesse Richman. These guys pull of crazy tricks totally effortless, while another friend of Kai Lenny, Kainoa McGee, is struggling to get up on the board for the first time in his life, a situation we´ve all been in once in our life =)

Mario Rodwald – PKRA 2012

Posted by kite2012 On June - 27 - 2012

This video features Mario Rodwald during the PKRA 2012 competition in Adicora, Venezuela. Mario has been kiting for 11 years, he started when he was 10 years old! So, this 21 year old boy is pretty good by now, perhaps a new Youri Zoon… Mario took the 2:nd place in the PKRA in Venezuela, beating Alex Pastor!

Here is a little promo video from Navis Boards, filmed in El Gouna in Egypt and in Dakhla in Marocco. Moreover, the only video I found this morning that is worth watching.

Kiteboarding somewhere…

Posted by kite2012 On June - 24 - 2012

Found this nice clip with one guy that is kiteboarding in somewhere. He is not at the same level as Youri Zoon, but still at an quite advanced level. The choice of music gives this clip a higher rating =)

Reno Romeu in Rio de Janeiro

Posted by kite2012 On June - 21 - 2012

Reno Romeu kiteboarding at his home spot Barra da Tijuca in Rio de Janeiro.

The video is not bad, but the shoter Andre Magarao obviously has a pretty bad taste when it comes to music. I think the natural choice of song to this video of course should have been Solid Sessions – Janeiro!

Hannah Whiteley in Venezuela

Posted by kite2012 On June - 20 - 2012

the bst video I could find today is this video featuring Hannah Whiteley. Here kitesurfing at Coche Island in Venezuela, enjoy!

Epic Surfing in Fiji

Posted by kite2012 On June - 19 - 2012

Kite 2012 is a site mainly focused on kitesurfing. However, in rare occasions surfing or wake boarding videos are published on the net that are so great that they deserve some space here on Kite 2012. This surfing video is one of those rare occasions. John Eaves has filmed a giant swell rolling in over Cloud Break in Fiji. This swell apperantly created some sick waves! The guys in the water must have had the most epic surfing session in there whole life!

John Eaves own words:

Cloud Break, fiji, june 8th, 2012 during the Volcom ASP surfing event a giant swell rolled in from the south. the contest was running all morning until the waves got so big, the contest organizers called it off for safety reasons, a call that will be forever debated in the surfing world. Regardless, it opened the doors for anyone willing to go for it, and there were many big wave riders that had flown in on news of the swell. the afternoon provided us with non-stop entertainment.
I have been a fan of surfing ever since I saw Simon Anderson introduce the Thruster at Pipeline in the early 80’s. I had a ring side seat and just happened to pack my Canon 5D in the bag that day!
It will go down in my memory as the best surfing I have ever seen.

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!
