Distinction, Pure wakestyle with Sam Light and Alex Fox

Wakestyle now, is a term thrown around pretty loosely these days in kiteboarding, which is unusual because as recently as two years ago, it was a term that essentially only referred to about %1 of the kiteboarding population. However with the recent emergence of bindings on the world tour, you see more and more people throwing that word around. It seems now as if almost all the top pros fall into the same category, what follows can be considered the distinction… In Patrick Wieland’s new short film “Distinction” produced by Mauicio Abreu, riders Alex Fox and Sam Light establish the standard and return the word “wakestyle” to its original roots.

Lewis Crathern 2012 Movie

We got an email from Lewis Crathern this morning, and it’s also great hearing what he’s been up to. After Jumping over the Worthing and Brighton piers he has become a household name in the UK aswell as the rest of the world. And there is nothing greater than someone who has the chance to make a difference actually doing so.

Through his involvement within Education, Lewis has also become a prolific success away from the waterline and is currently more motivated to teach Kids about Thinking Eco & living healthy than ever before. Using his passion for the exciting sport of Kitesurfing Lewis is able to inspire the younger generation by re-living challenges he has experienced within his own life.

Crathern has also been causing a stir on the airwaves, having ventured in a new direction of Commentator/Presenter. At a time where the General Public may find ‘the most rapidly growing watersport in the world’ hard to grasp Lewis is well renowned with the ability to communicate the sport to all levels in an informative yet witty way. Lewis’s typical, energetic presence in the commentary booth or in front of the camera has resulted in many lead positions for Extreme Sport’s Event’s and TV Productions around the world.

Below are some of the projects Lewis has been Busy with, see what he has to say and get involve.

Picnic In The Park

Picnic in The Park took place this month and the weather was great for the second year running. It’s quite an unusual event for me to attend as its based in a park in land (not where you usually find kitesurfers) but it has a great vibe and offers the public a closer look at Kitesurfing. Families come down through out the day to have a picnic and see all the different stands/exhibitions. It’s a great time for parents to talk to me about kitesurfing, they all usually like the look of it they just need a push to get out there and get some lessons! The kids love it too, I’ve learnt that a bar tied to the van is the perfect simulation for them, they really believe they are on the water kitesurfing!

Church

I’m not a major religious man but I did go to Church in Lancing the other month for “The Blessing Of The Boats”. It’s an annual event which originally involved blessing the boats of the local fishermen. In a more modern way they blessed my kitesurf board and a local sailors Dinghy. It was moving to see a whole church of people focusing some time to care about people using the water. During the ceremony I went up the front and chatted a bit about why Lancing is a great spot for kitesurfing. My local beach I learnt to kitesurf at has the 3rd biggest Kite Club in the Country!

Last weekend I commentated/presented The Worthing International Birdman event with Dave Hunt my Local Radio Icon. Birdman is a competition for human powered flying machines that take off from a special ramp constructed on Worthing Pier. Seeing as I have some history with the Pier its fitting that I’m involved with the event sharing my flying knowledge!

There are 3 flying classes so prospective entrants can decide if they wish to be a serious aviator or want to take part for fun and raise money for charity. This event brings thousands of visitors to Worthing over the weekend (over 10,000 on Sunday!), gaining both national and international publicity. The exposure is great for me over the weekend as I’m on full screen live broadcast commentating the event to the beach. Most years are windy so I can put on a kitesurfing show for the beach however it was not to be this year but the conditions did suit the flyers well.

See me in action on the event video here http://youtu.be/Ga-6tcpGVyU and some BBC coverage here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-19310902

Coming up in the next few months….

The Autumn conditions are just round the corner, the most extreme of the year – high winds and big seas I can’t wait. My schools program continues in England and I’ll be off to wales to see Steve Jones http://www.kiteboardinglessons.co.uk/ to work with some of his clients in a Clinic Based Weekend. I also have some great clinics to take in Egypt with African Space (Oct) and Morocco with Wave Riders (Nov)

Speak soon, Lew
