Learning to kiteboard well and with confidence is all about breakthroughs. Once you have a breakthrough with some aspect of kiting, whether it’s through an an on-the-water experience, something you read or your friend told you, or a video, everything clicks and you’ll wonder why you ever had trouble in the first place. This video is aimed at the level of kiting where you most need those breakthroughs.
Why are you inconsistent with your jibes? Why do you gack your jumps sometimes? How can you get those floaty jumps? Why do you crash the kite on a jump? How can I re-launch easier? How can you gain confidence with your wakeboard? How do you do a quad? …Well, maybe not that last one, but “How to Rip Harder” will answer all the rest of these questions and more.
This video is filmed in the steady north winds of La Ventana, Baja California where Ken is joined by professional kiters Chris Gilbert (wakeboard guy) and Julie Prochaska, who show off the smooth moves the way they’re supposed to be done.
This is a perfect complement to Ken’s first video – Kiteboarding: How to Rip. We don’t need to tell you, just look at the titles. This video picks up where Ken’s first one left off. Step it up.
