King of the AIR compo February 2011.

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

Maputo Open 2010 - Kiteboarding contest

With only 8 weeks to put an event together the guys from Mozambique did a fabulous job.



Day 1:

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…

Kitesurfing in P.E

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…

Which way is Forward when it comes to Sliding.

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…

Jolly Rubino - Revisited - Wednesday's Board Meetings

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…

Yorke arrived here on Sunday 13th June after a quick two night stop over in Sydney. Andrea and…
