"Behold & Sea": a freestyle and wake-style kiteboarding movie by Ewan Jaspan

SurfingtodayKite - 19. Февраль 2019 - 17:42

Ewan Jaspan released a medium-length movie. "Behold & Sea" showcases the best of contemporary freestyle and wake-style kiteboarding.

In a time of one-minute social media videos, it is rare to see a professional kiteboarder releasing a 25-minute film. Unless you're Aaron Hadlow, of course.

For those who have never heard of him, Ewan Jaspan won the Triple-S Invitational in 2017, and the Australian Freestyle Kiteboarding Nationals.

It might not make sense, but Antoine Auriol went kitesurfing in the center of Madrid.

Despite being a landlocked city, the Spanish capital has plenty of bodies of water, including lakes, and the iconic Manzanares River that crosses Madrid from north to south.

But the city in which Emilio Butragueño, Penélope Cruz, and Agatha Ruiz de la Prada were born is also home to the famous Buen Retiro Park - in English, Park of the Pleasant Retreat.

Are single-skin, single-line kites a lost cause?

SurfingtodayKite - 1. Февраль 2019 - 15:58

In 2013, I began developing single-skin, single-line kites. They were reliable enough in a range of winds to be useful as pilot and show kites at kite events, but don't have sticks, inflated tubes or ram-air inflated spaces.

It hadn't been done yet, it was probably possible, and it was a project I thought myself well suited to by resources and experience - somewhat hubristically as it's turned out.

I've now put some thousands of hours into this, and it's time for an accounting as to where things are at. Not much progress.
