The Kite Show

Episode 9
kiteboarding

This Episode was shot in Cape Town towards the end of the South Africa summer season and we are joined by steezy Brit Tom Court as guest host who gives us the benefit of his opinion on the features and riders appearing in this episode. Keahi de Aboitiz won our ‘2012 Video of the Year’ competition voted for by you with his ‘Hawaii Sessions’ flick, and we get his reaction to such a prestigious award. Tom Court joins his boys Aaron Hadlow and James Boulding for an interview at the Dirty Habits Mansion in Cape Town with Jim focusing on the filming of Freeride Project 2 (Sam Light almost made it back from the cable… but the filming was just too good we hear).

Jim also sits down with Ryan Evans, Rich Sabo and Sam Medysky from Best to hear how they’ve recently expanded their riding team to include the likes of Youri Zoon and Ruben Lenten. We announce the winner of the Best Profanity board and launch the North Trust bar competition. The Red Bull King of the Air dominates the news section as our host Jim was a judge, so he caught loads of reaction from that and we also fill you in on the latest world tour news. This episode’s Move of the Month features a bunch of Amercian Gangstas, Youri Zoon relives winning the 2012 PKRA World Title in Mystic Moments and we close the show out with our video of the year 2012, Hawaii Sessions.

Dirty Habits Boardriders Magazine will be publishing all future episodes of The Kite Show. so you want miss a thing.

Wind Or No Wind Board Jam @ CWC Cable park, Wake, Kite, Skate… Boom!!

The Wind or No Wind Jam is a one of a kind event designed to show the versatility of a location as well as the riders. The chosen location is great for kiteboarding and related boardsports such as Wakeboarding, Surfing, Wakeskating, SUP, Skateboarding etc… No matter if there is wind or no wind the riders will be able to get out and shred, which is what we all love to do.

The event has invited world class Professionals to be involved but happily welcomes anyone who wants to come and share the riding locations and festivities for the week.

Mission
The Wind or No Wind Jam will help create a better understanding of kiteboarding as an alternate tool which complements other boardsports, such as Wakeboarding and Surfing, while showing the different personalities and backgrounds involved.

This Event Takes Place at The CWC Cable Park in the Philippines and is coming up this month!

VIDEO: Aaron Hadlow Nails the 1st 900 on a kite, Check it! Boom

Here is the final episode of the 900 series, this time Aaron headed to Derde Stein, A wave spot in Cape Town, but on this day the kickers seems to be firing at the perfect size.
Ruben Lenten and Lewis Crathern went along to see if Aaron could manage it, there was a lot of riding around and searching but some absolute belters came through, and that’s all you need!

VIDEO: Aaron Hadlow | 900 Series EP 1

“Here is 1/6 in the 900 series, over the winter I had a goal to land the first 900 in kiteboarding. Wakestyle is growing and the conditions in Cape Town produce perfect kickers day in day out, using them like the wake of a boat I enjoyed learning a few new moves through out the season trying to push this side of the sport. I decided to film the road to landing a 9, episode 1 explains the set up required and kicks off the series”
