Well in case you missed the boat. This is how The Crew at Dirty Habits does summer.

dirty habits video

Amongst the Chaos this summer and all the international legends visiting The Dirty Habits crib, including Nitro Circus’ Erik Roner, Wake legends Shawn Watson and Kevin Henshaw, World champ freestyle paraglider Marvin Ogger, extreme kiters Ruben Lenten, Robbie Naish… we also had had Freeride Project and Riplslix Productions founder Tom Court spend the summer with us along with Crane jumper, Nick Jacobsen. Between the 3 boys including Mr. Dirty Habits Graham Howes, 3 very different projects began to merge into one common idea, The quest for epicness. and although the lines are still blurred between our different lives existing at other parts of the world, one thing remains certain. we sure as hell are having a good time. Here is the evidence. the teaser… just the tip of the iceburg.

Tom Court:

“So this winter I decided to hit the Cape Town kite scene again, after filming a section of the #freerideproject 2 (coming soon) here last year I couldn’t resist going back again. Heading out to roll with Dirty Habits crew (Graham Howes, Nick Jacobsen) and get the full CT experience…
Also catching up with Aaron Hadlow, The North team, riding some sessions with Craig Cunningham and generally getting up to some FreeRide Project kiteboarding fun!
Keep your eyes peeled for the web cuts that are coming soon from this Cape Summer.”

Windtown, Langebaan with Tom Court

 

When the wind blows 6 days a week in Bloubergstrand during summer it’s really easy to get stuck in a routine; Big Bay session at 9am, Kite beach at 2, and downwinder to Haakgat for sunset. Don’t get me wrong, we’re not complaining, but sometimes you just have to get away, ride some different spots, session some different conditions, and Langebaan is just that. A fresh escape from Cape Town. Dirty Habits Boardriders Magazine was invited to WINDTOWN Lagoon Resort, Restaurant & Spa for a few days with Tom Court, Sophie Mathews, Nick Catelan, Graham Howes, Candace Liu and RipSlix Prductions.

Tom Court was busy on this trip with filming for the Freeride Project with Aaron Hadlow, Sam Light, and James Boulding. Traveling with Tom is a very unique experience, he has a constant entourage following him, He has camera’s following him, girlfriends pumping his kites and laying his lines (Sophie girls need to take pointers from you), a guy to repairs his helicopter when he crashes it (Chris Willmott),  he even has The Kite Launcher to launch and land his kites. He suffered an injury whilst training for the Red Bull King Of the Air which meant and even bigger support crew to tighten his boots and other stuff he couldn’t reach.

Tom Court

It’s a wonderful place, 200m from Langebaan Kitebeach, were all the action goes down. Restaurants, pubs, kiteshops, lessons; it’s were it all happens. Then you can hop in the car and less than 5 minutes you’ll be standing at Shark Bay, one of the best kite spots in SA. Waist deep, turquoise, flat water, for as far as you can see and most of the time you’ll be riding in board shorts or a bikini.

When you done with your 8 hour kite season, sunburned and dehydrated, the oasis that is WINDTOWN awaits you, Totally protected from the wind, and with a pool side bar, it’s a trap that makes it very hard to leave.

The Kite Launcher 5, featuring Tom Court

After suffering a terrible double knee blowout earlier in the launching season, making sure the UK crew where off the ground, he has been spending some time recovering at home in the UK and looking after the girlfriends whilst the boys are Kiting in Cape Town

The Life of a professional Athlete is never as easy as it seems, but when you introduce girls into the mix life can get complicated… The Kite Launcher, is experiencing this first hand as he tries to balance his girlfriend, his clothing brand, the movie and the album whilst keeping his professional launching career up in the air…

Needless to say his traveling schedule has taken a hit, but now that he has got all the necessaries in place, hopefully he will get rid of the unnecessaries and will be travelling with the boys again soon!

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.

Big Up to Jim Gaunt editor of Kiteworld Magazine, for putting together a great show, can’t wait for the next one.
