Kiteboarder one ABC 7 Tonight

Postby MjrKrash » Mon Jul 15, 2013 8:08 pm

Did anyone see the kiteboarder on TV tonight kiting along side the Fly Emirates Cat and near the freighter? It was on ABC 7 broadcast ending at 2000 hrs. I was hoping someone might have a link online to it. I think the kiter was flying Ozone.

Anyone see or know about the publicity event?

Yup - Kited with Kai and Lenny when they came up to Alaska for a Naish TV shoot.
I wonder how close it would of been if one of those new-fangled foil boards were used instead??
I saw a couple in action.. one at Sherman and again at Crissy. Both seemed to be hauling....

It would have been worse since foil boards do not go down wind very well. Few guys used to race with the foil boards but gave up because they were slow going down wind.

They're making a comeback though. Bernie raced on one a few weeks ago and Johnny's been playing around on his. It would have been good to have someone on a raceboard at least, but I guess this is Red Bull marketing not really sailing.
