Do you suffer from Wanderlust?

Do you suffer from Wanderlust?

Its not often, even in my line of work, that you get to go on a trip that is so out or the normal and different that it totally blows all expectations out of the water. Well, after receiving an invite to go and check out the remote private island of Wakatobi in Indonesia for the possibility of developing some Kiteboarding camps out there, I really didn't know what to expect. Hopping on a plane in the UK with Sophie Mathews, we hot footed it out to Bali to catch a few waves before leaving from Kuta on a charter plane to the Suluwasi region of inner Indonesia. Only really known at the moment for its world class diving and untouched reefs, it was our job to see if Kitesurfing had a place in this natural paradise. This is the clip that I through together that sums up the trip pretty well!

 

Check out the edit we made 'Wanderlust' as part of the 2015 #countintheact series building up to the release of the Freeride Project 3 movie at the end of the year.

The future of sailing?

The future of sailing?

Its always interesting being involved in something new, kites have always pushed the boundaries of what is possible on the water and to a large extend they have broken all expectation over the last fifteen years. Now there is a new era dawning on us and that is the era that crosses over with the sailing industry. Boats have been powered by sail for as long as anyone can remember but over the past few moths we have been filming with Kite Tender, they are looking to take the sailing world by storm and introduce and new, two man, high performance sailing dingy to the market. This time powered by kites! No mast, no rigging, minimum clutter and a top speed of 25 knots... Could this be one watch for the future!?

The great thing about being involved in action sports is that there are endless ways to innovate, weather that is inventing new tricks, filming new video concepts or developing tech that enhances peoples experiences.

A year in motion - Onto the next!

2014 has been an amazing year, so many things have happened that I didn’t expect and although it has been a quiet December back at my desk in the UK, looking back through some of the clips that we filmed this year has been awesome.

People often ask me; ‘where is the best place in the world to go kiteboarding’ and it can be hard to answer, as often what makes a place truly amazing is the ability to do everything.

A Project with PicoPix – Philips

A few months back I had a Skype meeting with the guys at Sagemcom, it was one of the phone calls that you don’t believe your having until you have hung up. Talking to the guys behind the new Philips PicoPix projectors about how they would like to use Kiteboarding as the basis for a PicoPix video.

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Peter Renssen from Holland. We had spoken about sailing and his idea to create a commercial kite boat that could bridge the gap between then Kiteboarding industry and the Sailing world.
