    10 Tips on How to Give Your Kitesurfing Equipment a Double Lifespan (Before the Kitesurf Session)

    Check out this great blog we found from Gabriele Fabrizio Sbalbi. Hopefully it will help you make the most out of your gear for many more sessions!
    10 Tips on How to Give Your Kitesurfing Equipment a Double Lifespan (Before the Kitesurf Session)

    Altona Ride Day – KR KITE CLUB – April 12th, 2014

    Thanks to everyone that made it along for this great day. A change of location due to last minute forecast changes proved to be right on the mark, with Altona turning it on for a great day on the water!

    An awesome mix of riders not only made the day heaps of fun but meant a huge progression right through the day.

    From first solid rides, dry turns, upwind riding and first jumps, we also saw solid bankrolls, raleys and more. Without a doubt my favourite […]

    KR KITE CLUB – FREE Safety Clinic

    Hopefully this will continue to improve the knowledge and understanding of kiters in general as this information is shared and each and every attendee can confidently pass this on to other kiters on the […]

    Why not? Branson does 3

    Haha, of course he did!

    Necker Island: Showman and serial entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson is at it again, working with Susi Mai to break yet another Guinness World Record. In 2012, Branson was the oldest person to kitesurf across the English Channel. In 2013, Branson led the largest number of kitesurfers ever to complete a one-mile course. Now true to form in 2014, Branson has broken yet another record. This time, for the ‘most people riding a kitesurf board’.

    Richard Branson goes kiteboarding with girls on his back

    26 March 2014 | Kiteboarding

    Richard Branson has gone kitesurfing with Susi Mai and Alison DiSpaltro on his back, at Necker Island.
    The Virgin mogul likes a good controversy. In 2009, Sir Richard Branson went kiteboarding with naked model Denni Parkinson on his back, in the British Virgin Islands.

    The images spread around the world and later forced him to explain that it was an idea from photographer Stephane Gautronneau.

    Now, there are more ladies onboard. Pro surfer Susi Mai […]
