That's odd - a FUN kiteboarding video?

Postby alexeyga » Sun Sep 23, 2018 4:41 pm

Here's a couple of revelations to the whole kite industry about making kite-related video content:
1)a bunch of charismatic dudes and a few cows make it look a lot more fun than yet another 75lbs fitness chick who can't jump for sh@t.
2)this one will come as no surprise - but it's perfectly OK to skip the whole waking up/driving to/pumping up thing. Seriously.
3)oh craps, no wake mumbo-jumbo and it still looks like they are having fun? odd - isn't it?

I find Kevin's log the only interesting one. I do skip some parts....but the general message is awesome .... Have fun!

I'd say JN is the same type. They go well together. They should start a new brand together.

Kevin’s attitude is infectious, and he seems just the same in person the times I’ve met him in Cape Town.

Nice. I've never met him, but he seems like a genuinely nice and stoked guy. His videos make me happy.

Nice. I like a good bit of alternative kiting location. Keeps the blood pumping rather than same old same old in the sea.
