The future of kiteboarding

Postby tomerp » Tue Aug 21, 2012 5:58 pm

I thought these were old school tricks from 10 years ago that any current pro can do? Like board offs, always Hooked in.

you know, every few sessions, i'll swap boards with someone who wants to try bindings...and the first thing I do when riding their strap board, is do a one-footer or board off.

man, those things are SO fun!

i don't really understand why nobody does them? especially the folks in straps, you really have no excuse.

Next time I jump, I'll do a board off but it will be a board off only. The on part will be after I've crashed in the water. But hey you gotta start somewhere

I was of course being sarcastic when I posted this. That being said, I worked on board offs for so long and can land a kite loop to blind more often than a good board off. So yeah I think these tricks are pretty hard, the jesus walks are particularly cool. The video on the other hand is about as cheese dick as i've ever seen. I vomited a little in my mouth every time a word came up on screen. "Its all about...........Variation.............." Yes it is Toby, Yes it is.

IT'S ABOUT... CHEESE DICK.

Don't be so rough on him. Who cares if his taste in music and editing style is "different" (ok, that was a nice way of saying cheese dick). The video is badass regardless. Some day I might be able to do one part of ONE of those tricks. :shock:

I thinks it's great stuff but I agree those "it's about..." breaks in the video need to go away. Otherwise Keep up the good work Toby and thanks for sharing with us!
