The future of kiteboarding

Postby dpca10 » Sun Aug 19, 2012 7:48 pm

Yeah Adam, Ramsey. Guess you guys missed the boat.....I'm going to post this on kitescoop so they know too. Boots apparently are out, need to pull out the 14m kite and maybe a 128x39 board with straps.

Hahahahaha, how epic is this guy's kite skill. How does someone go about learning how to be that skilled at handling a kite?

I'm torn between how goofy this vid is and how epic his kite skills are.

its just mesmerizing to watch someone fly (get flown) like that. that's awesome.

idk if you can call that the future tho. there will always be variety. i enjoy watching people twist a million times a second and blow their knees landing too, but i do lean towards this. one day __

It's amazing how much controversy Toby generated with this 'airstyle' thing.

"airstyle" is just an avenue to polish his own ego....we all like praise

He didn't invent airstyle...

He has incredible skill for sure, but his style is a bit fluffy....

Haha yeah I remember that guy From Cumbuco Brazil when I was there - he was always out on a 16 I think, even in 25+ and always at the bar playing foosball afterwards. Big guy, amazing skills, huge ego but more in a ham it up kind of way.
