The Outer Banks - The last Triple-S ever - Court In The Act Ep. 104

Postby Toby » Mon Jun 08, 2020 2:56 pm

So even before the news broke of this Global pandemic we find ourselves in the midst of, we got the sad news that one of the worlds biggest kiteboarding event and one of the main Kite Park League event stops would not run this year...

It is an event that I have been to for eleven years, that gathers riders from all over the world to get together and hang out whilst sliding across one of the worlds biggest floating kite parks. This event is based on the outer banks in Waves, North Carolina out of Real Watersports and attracted riders from all over the globe...

This is me, deep behind the scenes, for the last event ever hanging with the crew (Aaron Hadlow, Sam Light, Sam Medesky, Bavey Blair, Brandon Scheid etc) and capturing a unique view into what goes on in those moments between times at the Triple-S invitational...

In Loving Memory of the event!

Last year was a bit boring with 14m sizes flown and not much wind for many of the days. Twintipping is more fun when you ride a 9m in 25+knots.

For years Real Watersports back counter has had a sticker displayed “windsurfing has been cancelled”. Now it’s the wakestyle that has been cancelled.

The Real slick is a nice spot to boost. It’s also foilable and Watermen’s Bar&Grill food and staff are great so there will be other parties, other events.
The Earth is still spinning and life goes on.

Welcome to age of foiling while big air showtime is still on!
