This has got to be one of the coolest videos ever made. Human skateboarding is done really well and is a fun take on the sport we all know and love. I watched this several times in a row it was so entertaining.

Catching a wave was never so much fun. The expression on her face says it all.

Phutek Gets Inaugural Kiteboarding Competition

Phuket, Thailand has some of the most scenic beaches in the world and now will host its first ever kiteboarding competition

Phuket, Thailand has some of the most scenic beaches in the world and now will host its first ever kiteboarding competition

 

Surin Beach and Stereolab Phuket Thailand will host the first ever international Kiteboarding Competition to be held in Phuket Thailand and under the “KTA Open Event” umbrella.

 

Proposed as a now annual event, Surin beach will see the current Asian Champion (Thai National Narapichit Pudla “Yo”) strut his stuff against International and National opponents in both Freestyle and course racing disciplines, the event will also hold a novelty Big Air event over the 4 days.

 

The KTA Tour 2009/2010 raised a lot of new interest in kiting in Asia both from the region and internationally, so we want to build on this and help as many events as we can to grow their profile and locations.

 

To do this and following a few other requests from other events and locations we have decided to broaden what the KTA does and as well as the tour to also run a KTA open event, which allows for one off events, events of different styles that want to hold more than just the approved IKA competition disciplines and events that fall outside the main tour season to become part of the KTA sanctioned events programme.

Big Air Kiteboarding

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

 

Check out this amazing serious, and I mean serious, big air kiteboarding video featuring some really highflying moves. Just watching this video makes me want to try kiteboarding. This video was taken in one of the most popular kiteboarding havens in the world, Cabarete, Dominican Republic. The music track also helps in getting you into the mood.
