new trick - Hover Handstand

Postby fun2kite » Tue Oct 30, 2018 5:24 am

This one is just insane. Trick is called: Hover Handstand .

Click to watch the video. I think this trick is similar in execution to "Jesus Walk" as looks like all the body suspension is done by the kite and the hand is just holding the hydrofoil down.

love it! Yes, 10 only with pointed toes !

But really cool! It's like a boardoff superman from the style. Very nice!

Keep pushing...so much more possible!

Time for companies to start hiring new proriders I’d say.

Foiling is making its big bold way in and sales of foils must be indicating that to everyone who is good with excel and has the numbers or listens to what dealers say.

More new names to come I hope and more inspiration with them
