From all the way back in the mid-90s, prime windsurfing days, some of the best videos were from Trow Vision Productions - films like Chapped and Surface Tension. Then Peter Trow took to kiting like a storm, becoming a pro rider and co-producing Strung Out with us, another winner. We're pleased to announce another great video - Soul Fly.
Join 2004 PKRA world champion Aaron Hadlow, female wave ripper Ammy Naff, pro surfer turned pro kiter Josh Mulcoy, filmmaker Peter Trow (of course), and others on a wave rich journey to the enchanted waters of the Caribbean, deep into dusty Baja, Mexio, and all along California's diverse coastline. Filmed in colorful 16mm film and professional digital video, Soul Fly captures the essence of wave kiting as well as a look into the progression of freestyle riding. Experience this intriguing ride into the wind, the waves, travel, and soul.
And if you know anything about Peter, you'll guess that there's a serious dose of hardcore waveriding action, epic down-the line perfection, and heavy Santa Cruz power. Peter is also a stickler for clean, well-composed cinematography, and searches untiringly for the perfect soundtrack to create a masterfully edited film that appeals to everyone, one reason why Peter doesn't pop films out every six months.
Reflecting Peter's surfing roots, Soul Fly is created with an old-time surf movie vein, but with the modern technical wizardry of kiteboarding today. Kiteboarding's current directional, wave oriented, style owes 100% hommage to Peter, who, by staying true to his roots, never relinquished his directional for either twin tip or wake style riding in his 6 years of kiteboarding. Combine that with the sport's youngest world champ, who can do anything on a kite, and Josh Mulcoy, the most stylish and pure surfing style kiteboarder today, and you've got a video that will headline your collection. A video with soul.

That First Glide
by Mike Waltze Productions
By Mike Waltze: The sport of Stand Up Paddle seems to have popped up out of nowhere. The truth is, the sport has deep roots in both early Polynesian and Hawaiian History as it is truly a combination of outrigger paddling and surfing.
The first regular Stand Up Paddle enthusiasts were playing around in Waikiki as early as 1939, when Duke Kahnomoku used to stand up on an australian surf ski. Later, in the 60's and 70's guys like John Ah Choy and John Zapotocki used to do the sport regularly up into the late 90's until they finally were getting to old to keep surfing.
Around that Same time, Laird Hamilton and Dave Kalama played around with paddles on Maui and although at first no one seemed to take notice, it wasn't long before the sport was attracting all sorts of users from all over the world.
Now, Stand Up Paddling is done almost everwhere there is water, and the sport has gone in multiple directions. Some people like the excercise and weight loss aspects in flat water, others like to race, and the most extreme are taking the boards out into the waves. Filmed in Hawaii, Fiji, and Tahiti, That First Glide is a must see movie for everyone and features most of the premier athletes that got the sport off the ground.

The Unknown Road
Ben Wilson is regarded as one of the most influential wave riders in the world. This film is focused on his surf style approach to the waves, not comparing it to surfing, but showing it as an extension by using the kite to whip him in, like a jet ski would a surfer, then killing the power of the kite and using the power of the wave to ride the wave. The entire movie is unstrapped and shot all around the world. Also featuring Mauricio Abre, Moe Goould, Joel Becus, Jeff Tobias, Ryland Blakeny and Josh Mulcoy.

Intermediate to advanced instruction by Real Kiteboarding
Welcome to the thrid installment in the 5 DVD instructional series from Real Kiteboarding - the largest lesson center in the world. The first DVD, Zero to Hero took you from rank beginner to the self-sufficient riding level. Then, Evolution improved your on-the-water riding with valuable and hard to find instruction on learning techniques, kite control, stance, and transitions. Now comes the good stuff - jumping.
Everyone loves to jump. It certainly is the main draw that gets people into kiteboarding in the first place. But before Joyride jumps into jumping, you'll reinforce techniques like proper stance, which in turn lead to doing more powerful turns, downlooping the kite, riding faster with more power, riding in control, and riding in a crowd - all things you'll need to know first before hucking your first successful 20 foot air.
In the jumping section you'll learn the mechanics of jumping, progressive edge (kind of teching out with that one but it's key), load and pop jumps, boosting jumps, air transitions, and, of course, troubleshooting. Then it's on to the tricks - boosting grabs, load and pop grabs, hooked in front and back rolls and spins, and an intro to unhooked tricks.
Finally, there's tips for your continued education in kiteboarding. Finally, that is, except for the huge bonus section. There's the Joyride stage Coaches Tips section, the sure to be popular Sleazy-J Grab Tutorial, Gear Tuning, BVI Action, etc., etc., etc.. No effort was spared in bringing on the bonus sections.
You'll notice the filming location for this DVD was moved from Cape Hatteras to the incredible British Virgin Islands. While Hatteras may be the easiest place in the world to learn to kiteboard, guaranteed you'll be booking a flight for points south next winter after keeping your learning curve vertical with Joyride. Keep your learning curve vertical with Joyride, and then Surf, the 4th DVD in the series.

And entry-level instructional kiteboarding DVD
Check out this brand new entry level kiteboarding video by Mike Foy, producer of the classic action kite DVDs Sick Days and Small Craft Warning.
Learn to Kiteboard with style as Leading Edge Productions & Elevation Kiteboarding
coach you through the key steps to riding upwind.
By focusing on fundamental skills like kite control & body position, My Session helps speed up the learning curve, & prevent bad habits - before they start.
The lesson plan includes discussion of some general characteristics of wind, like speed and direction. Then we compare different kites based on aspect ratio, de-power, relaunch, and safety. There is also a discussion on the general evolution of kite design over the history of the sport. After that we move on to kite control, first using a trainer kite to go over basic kite flying skills and kite positions, showing how each is linked to flying the larger, more powerful kites. This will give you the knowledge and flying skills required to get up and riding.
But before you can ride it you need to know how to rig it. Rigging may sound easy but pumping up and laying out your lines can get messy, fast. Then we coach you through both assisted and self-launching techniques. Then we wak you into the water for your first downwind bodydrag, followed by body dragging upwind. The next step is the waterstart. Once you are up and riding we go over basic stance, hand, and kite positions for all types of wind conditions. Then we show how to turn around on a twin-tip.
Somewhere along the way you are going to crash your kite, so we show you the basics of water relaunching. And finally, the lesson ends with assited landing and self-rescue.
Learn to be independent, & safe - while still having fun.
Starring IKO instructor Marie Leclerc and Mark 2 Dog.
