A different Lifestyle

Very inspiring movie created by F-One.
Kitesurfing, Surfing and Stand Up Paddling are such great sports, so similar and so distinct in the same time.

RRD Placebo kiteboard 2010

RRD10_Placebo144_386
The RRD Placebo freestyle kiteboards are a great line of boards from 39cm to 47cm of width. Lengths are from 139 to 144.

The RRD Placebo 2010 are slightly longer and built softer than the Poisons. They are just pure freestyle pleasure. Immediately comfortable at the first approach the RRD Placebo 2010 kiteboards are a result of multiple performance research which has been achieved over 10 years of testing and designing. Another great milestone in the RRD line!

As school, Kite 415 is using the 2010 RRD Placebo boards for beginner kitiboarding lessons observing the benefit of a wider board which gives students more stability and enough volume to have a easy stand up on the board and comfortable ride.

The only SLE kite in RRD’s line. Solid proven performance. Solid Power, “silly” maneuverability, perfect to ride unhooked.
The RRD Obsession 2010 is based on the fantastic success of the Obsession 2009 model with a revised shape, tips width and profile and outline design. The result is an even more stable kite, faster in the big sizes and slower in the small ones, with an incredible amount of power and easiness to ride “unhooked”. The new trendsetter in speed and progressive smooth power in all areas of the flying window. Perfect for kite loops and power moves, great for every serious kite boarder.
A reference in the market today.

It was great to get some big surf at Ho’okipa, a few days right before leaving Maui for another hopefully grate season of kiting and lessons in San Francisco.  Riding all most by my self since were no other kiters in the water, just me and 3 other windsurfers in between them Robby Naish.

Thanks Maui for all the grate surf and nice weather this winter !

You can’t have it all…. ! Maui lacked in wind this winter more then any other years. Yet in return we got a lot of beautiful surf.

Nice Kona days but also lots of West swells which turns Pe’ahi (Jaws) in to a real circus…but in a good way.

Here are just a few pictures I took today.
