Sending My Kite Around the World - Steven Akkersdijk

Postby Toby » Thu Sep 19, 2019 8:00 pm

Hey guys! In the past year I got loads of questions about this trick, and now it's finally time to give you a full break down. Check out this hydrofoiling "Around the world" A.K.A. "Kite360" tutorial!

This trick went viral about a year ago for one simple reason. It seems like the rider is defying the laws of physic when the kite keeps on flying even though it's upwind of the rider.

When giving this trick a try there is one major tip to remember.
SPEED = Your Friend!

Fantastic tutorial.

Not there yet, but if I ever do, this will have been key. The white line demo showing the actual birds eye path traveled by the rider is so helpful. Really great illustrations.
