Rank #13: Everything you Never Knew About Kitesurfing Kites

Podcast cover
Read more
Buying a kite is an incredibly difficult decision for most. 

Things are not made any easier by the fact that manufacturers deliberately describe them in generic language making it sound as if every kite does EVERYTHING well.

In this episode I speak to Mike Birt of KTwo Distribution, one of the most knowledgeable chaps I know when it comes to kite design and the features you should be looking for in your next kite.

In this episode we cover a HUGE amount including:

The defining factor in ANY kite that will determine if it's the right kite for you
Should you be sharing a kite with your partner?
What you should be looking for in your kite.

And a heck of a lot more, in fairness I learnt a LOT in this talk and I imagine you will to. So if you're interested to know more about this fascinating topic tune in, kick back

Rank #15: The Quest To Become The Best Kitesurfer

Podcast cover
Read more
Join me on my journey on our Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/tantrumkitesurf/

I’ve been kitesurfing and teaching kitesurfing now for 15 years and have a confession…

I’m not actually that good a kitesurfer.

As I’ve been teaching all the time, I’ve always been working when there was wind and after 9 hours at the beach teaching the last thing you feel like doing is going kiting, so I have never really progressed to the level I wanted...a source of constant shame for me!

So a couple of things have changed this year and I have a bit more time so I have decided at the age of 38 to spend a year really seeing just how good a kiter I can become, with the eventual goal being to hit up some of the biggest, baddest waves on the planet.

So where am I now?

As I make this video this haven’t been on the water for 8 months and am probably in the worst shape of my life.

I’ll be making a few videos detailing the backstory to this for those of you interested in the juicy details, but in a nut shell over the last few years I’ve faced quite a few health and lifestyle challenges, that have led to this current predicament.

As a kiter I’m ok, I can do basic freestyle stuff and can hold my own in small waves but for someone who has lived in Tarifa for 12 years…I’m AWFUL.

Now those who have been following me for a while will note I actually tried this before…but got interrupted by bad health…again more on this in the backstory.

So the plan is to create a diary journaling all the different things I do both on and off the water over the next year and to be your kitesurf case study.

The idea being to give you a toolbox of things that work which you can use to master this awesome sport.

For the full low down check out this video:
