  • The Impossible is not impossible

    INSANE Quadruple Handle Pass Robinson Hilario

    I’m not going to lie… the moves you are going to see throughout the later part of this 2 minute work of art are the sort of thing that should motivate us all to get off the couch and get fit. Very impressive.

    Go get em Robinson!

    French woman survives 36 hour ordeal on SUP

    This is a crazy story of a 36 hour SUP ordeal off the NE tip of France.

    Definitely some lessons to be learned from this…

    1. Make sure somebody knows where you are if heading out on the water.

    2. Heading out after dark by yourself probably isn’t the best idea!

    3. Make sure you know and understand the currents, wind conditions, and what effect these will have you your session.

    4. If you’re heading out (especially in open waters) make sure you have the correct safety gear with […]

    El Nino is back… what does this mean for Melbourne Kiters?

    A couple of weeks back I got in touch with Kevin Parkyn, a fantastic guy at the Bureau of Meteorology that as well as being a kiteboarder himself, has always been very generous with coming to KR CLUB Events and running educational clinics on wind and weather conditions for kiteboarding.

    Anyway… I asked him if he could give me a basic rundown on what we can expect for the season ahead, as well as let me know any articles that he knows of that would […]

    KR CLUB September Social Night & Snowkiting Awards Night

    Was fantastic to see everyone after a month that saw the sun start to peer back into our lives and the wind start to show signs of firing in St Kilda.
