The Kiteboarding Industry Movie - Free Ride Project 4

Postby Toby » Wed Apr 28, 2021 10:43 pm

As the outbreak of a deadly virus grips the world, I sit at home at the start of lockdown, looking at the pile of hard drives that scatters my desk. For years I have been documenting what I have been doing as a pro kiteboarder, with one purpose. To show you what kitesurfing is all about, to represent the sport in the best way possible and give back to the industry that has given me so much over the years. Kite boarding is a sport that has the power to change lifestyle, to create jobs and enhance our awareness of our surroundings in every way. I believe that this can also educate us into respecting the natural elements that create the playgrounds that we all use and love, in-turn inspiring change in out behaviours...

However, first it is about making the sport more accessible and as fun as possible so that more people can benefit from the unique freedoms that the sport can offer. This is achieved at ground level, by the brands and factories that design and build the equipment that allows us to get into the elements and keep shredding to the best of our ability. The strongest, lightest and most enduring equipment that enables pro riders like myself to push the limits of what is possible and explore the edges of reality.

For over 20 years I have let kiteboarding take me on a journey that has opened up the world for me. Exploring new destinations, meeting amazing people and experiencing things that I would never have seen if it wasn't for the sport. From competitions to events and now finding the true meaning of free riding as I come to create my 4th movie in the Freeride Project series.
