On Kiteboarding

Postby On kiteboarding » Sat Jan 25, 2020 6:19 pm

:wink:
What's up ya'll
This is Lou (Wainman)-------- ( yes in the old guy club now ) but still the GODFATHER of this mutha. Was, is, and always will be. so deal with it. ;)


In a week or so, I will be doing a pod cast with Adrian @ the www.kitesurf365.com podcast station about the start of ON KITEBOARDING and a bit of my story and goals / facts / etc.
There is already one I did a bit ago ( I think episode 107 ) if you want a little something to hear on your way to work or whatever. I think this guy does the best job so I'm going with the best.

The www.onkiteboarding.com website will launch in about a week with a pre-order form and contact information.
Some wings are already arriving from the factories ( yup 2 factories tada!) and the Kites are not far behind. ( this Spring ) And full bore by Summer. ( ready for the EU tour ) and EVERYBODY worldwide !

It's been an amazing and very difficult adventure getting to this point and I will be talking a bit about that and pre plugging my book I'm writing about my insane as hell LIFE before the Windustry, during, and the future.
I hooked up with Friends I have known for a long time who are honest and hardworking and this time it's working out perfect... and I will be able to care for myself and my family, also the homeless and mentally ill, once and for all. ( and all of you guys !)

I have totally changed my life around, totally sober, motivated as hell, clear, on medication for my mind issues, (7 years now) ,at the gym everyday and on a mission to kick ass in Kiteboarding ( the sport I helped pioneer) now that I am more free and with opportunity again. Who knows maybe get in that King of the Air one day and join the real fun.....hope those kids will see that the old guys got a few tricks up the sleeve too !

I will be talking about the online magazine I'm working on with my good friend Pauly Goldstein and his team from Australia ----- (You can look him up on my friends list on my facebook page " LOU WAINMAN " and see a bit of what I have been doing etc.)
The online mag will be the sickest shit you ever saw online for sure with also a once a year paper publication really thick with the sickest articles, shots, stickers, poster, and t-shirt included. ( so once I announce the name on the pod cast...go and subscribe ! )

Anyway this post is the start of a monster comeback healthier than ever and more motivated than one can imagine. It will take time to get it going full steam but it's the start.... I intend to be close with the fans and industry and fix all the problems and set this ship on the right course once and for all.

If you are interested in joining On kiteboarding you can go to www.onkiteboarding.com and hit the contact link to introduce yourself, your ideas, your dreams and your details.
We will get back to you quickly if you fit in our master plan.
this is a good time for riders also to give us the scoop on yourself and your vision. All are welcome to be in ON. Just be cool.

Just wanna say thanks to everybody who believes in me and that I kinda apologize for for nothing.
I share my opinion and can back it up with some facts which makes things interesting and informative from someone who has always cared about safety first, performance 2nd, and everything else that comes with this great life we all have.

Talk soon guys and thanks.
p.s my instagram is lou.wainman ( will be building that up very soon --- up until now I just did facebook for social media ----)
sweet. ya'll have a great day and here we GO !

Lou

I haven't been following much. Is the Wainman brand dead?

Good luck with your endeavours! The red prototype looks great.

Awesome news brother.
Keep on the path there is only one godfather.
Dude 2 line kites boosting unhooked.
Like to see some new good riders perform that well on the old gear lol.
Also for mid to low aspect kites.
Lou is the man for short lines.
I've seen him on 7m lines in the surf and looping.
And now all the kids are trying.
Do a YouTube or blog to impart that wisdom you have so others can benefit.
So glad to hear you are back on track.
Wiser and smarter this time and full of passion.
For the sport that you inspired so many to push themselves out of there comfort zone.
