This is a CLASSIC - UPWIND, the Launch of Kiteboarding - Produced by RED BULL. I have decided to post it here as we head off to Maui for this year's MaiTai. Many of the folks that helped create the sport and many of the early riders are in this video. You have to install the player to watch it, but I have the video on a continuous loop streaming off one of my PC's at home. If it resets, I wont be able to turn it on til I am back from Maui :-)
IN this video, there are great interviews of Pete Cabrinha, Robby Naish, and other key figures that made this sport happen. I think it was produced just after I started kiting. You will see cameos from riders on our trip - Jesse at 10 years old, Shawn entering his teens, and Susi at her first competition on Maui!! How fun!
