Wind and Waves Festival 2012

Posted by kite2012 On July - 5 - 2012

Must be tough for all windsurfers out there watching the kiteboarders jumping skyhigh and making crazy tricks making windsurfing looking nerdy and super boring. On top of that the windsurfers are now being kicked out from the Olympics in favor of the kiteboarders… talk about being put in the shadow behind the kiteboarders ;)
Joking aside, vindsurfing can pretty cool as well! Check out these maniacs that are windsurfing in 20 knots in Gran Canaria, guess that’s the wind speed necessary to perform a double backloop with a windsurfing sail :)

And now a video that has nothing to with kitesurfing or windsurfing whatsoever. Just a great tune from The Naked And Famous – Punching In A Dream, a tune that goes on repeat in my sound system right now. Actually the same song that is used in one of all videos with Youri ZoonThe Ultimate Reward

Kiteboarding – a new olympic sport!

Posted by kite2012 On June - 21 - 2012

In the last 20 years kiteboarding has gone from almost nothing to a big deal, so big that Kiteboarding probably will go to the Olympics in 2016! It´s said in this small documentary from CNN that Windsurfing has to go out of the Olympics if Kiteboarding is voted in. A pity for all wind surfers, but I think the majority of us will be happy with this decison :)
