Kitesurfing, kiteboarding shop & school. Lessons - Durban, PE, J-Bay
The King of the air contest was a great success, with guys hitting some nice hang time. The surf condition were not the easiest and some seriously sizey waves Were pulling through but everyone did really well and had a blast.
The big waves made for some extra lift and also for some incredible wave riding.
Well done to the following guys for hitting the 3 best times:
1 - Calvin Da Silva. 6 seconds

With only 8 weeks to put an event together the guys from Mozambique did a fabulous job.
We set off from Durban at the new snazzy airport and arrived in JHB to meet all the top riders from around the country. It was really good to see the guys again and I knew that the level at this contest would be totally mind blowing.
We all set off for Mozambique compliments of 1Time airlines and the flight went really quick, before we knew it we had touched down…

Saturday morning looked as we would not get much wind, so most of the guys took to the water with surfboards and enjoyed the classic Durban surf. The wind started to fill through but just not enough to get going,
but that did not hold Dean back. He took out the new 12m Proton with a…

Kitesurfing in P.E
Arriving in P.E after a short 1.5hr flight from Durban I met up with Fred from Xelerator and Stef from JHB and we headed straight to the beach. After breakfast we decided to
take a drive and locate some new kiting spots that we could test out the next
day as the forecast was looking really good. Our mission was to find waves, and
waves we did find. But some of the spots require allot more planning as…
Sliding is the next big phase we are going to see in kiting and my suspicions are that it will be good for the sport as a whole. It is a simple concept for a sport like kiting but for once the sport becomes static in that you can actually "tie down" the riders to an area. This has huge implications for the sport in terms of the media and events as there is suddenly something that is easy to market. It has huge spectator value and this is what sponsors are after. It…Continue

In light of the new group 'Wednesday Board Meeting' that has been set up on the network, I thought I would steal the opportunity to bring something to light and then hopefully get to try and revisit an old friend. For some 7 years now I have been trying to get back to her, so maybe now is our time.
If you have any adventure in you then join the group to stay in the loop. Here's to hoping that this time we pull it off again. Oh and by the way if you think a Wednesday is…

Richard, never one to shy away from a challenge has thrown down the gauntlet to the big six zero by setting himself up to become the oldest person to kitesurf the English Channel,
from Dungeness to the French coast.
Being an extremely…
I was the only girl in the competition riding without footstraps. Really happy to finish at 5:th place on the worldcup here in Morocco. Won first heat against Angela Peral and then lost against 2006
worldchampion Ainhoa Garcia. On two out of three judges it was a really
close heat against Garcia, I lost with 5 points against 6 with one judge
and 3.6 to 4.8 with the other one.…

We have managed to twist Fred's arm and get some pics of the new 2011 kiteboards he has lined up for the coming season. From the success of the 2010 line of BOMB PROOF boards, the new range
is going to take the words "indestructible & performance" to a
whole new level.…

Bula Vinaka from Fiji!
Its been a while since I last updated life in Fiji, but since my son Yorke arrived here for a two week holiday, I thought I would share some of the amazing pics of where we went away to.
The place is called the Beach House and is on the Coral Coast, a two hour drive from my home in Lautoka, on the West Coast of Vitu Levu.
Yorke arrived here on Sunday 13th June after a quick two night stop over in Sydney. Andrea and…Continue
I came across this article and though it may answer some of the questions that have been floating around lately.
When someone mentions the name Aaron Hadlow, people stop dead in their tracks to get a glimpse of this English kiteboarding superhero in action. From his super sick freestyle
moves, to his smooth wakeboading influenced style, Hadlow is simply…
