Mark Shinn - Boosting on a crossbow

Postby kitefilm.com » Tue Oct 25, 2005 1:50 pm

Here's a video of Mark Shinn, filmed in Tenerife August 2005.
Mark is using the Crossbow 12 in around 30 knots wind.
And getting some good jumps and nice waves.
As you can imagine this is from one of our upcoming
films..................................say no more

Is Mark no longer a rider for Naish?

no, since (mid) 2004 not anymore.

Nice shots from uphill!

But no matter what gear he rides, Mark rips!
Check out his "Funk" DVD...lots of strapless riding and great interviews.

Funk was good, but with a depowerable kite, the strapless surfing is going to be even better in the next one. But how about including some big wave riding with a strapped board in the next film?

Anti-bow sentiment on this forum has subsided a little. It's peaceful.

nice to see a good video w/out having to be subjected to the handlepass/slider monkeys.

Great stuff. Did you guys know that Mark Shin does a kite clinic in Egypt every year. He takes around 4 students for 5 days and teaches them whatever they want to learn (advanced stuff only obviously).

During that course they make videos and analise them to improve your technique and style.

It costs around GBP300 per person.

He tends to do them in August/September in Magawish...
