If you are looking to get pumped up by your favorite kiteboarding pros throwing down with the sickest airs and tightest tricks, look no further. Kite-Line has all the biggest names in kiteboarding videos on DVD for your viewing pleasure. With the latest titles from all of the top kiteboarding producers, you’re sure to get inspired.
*Note: contrary to what the title might suggest this is not an entry-level video. It starts off at the early jumping stage.
Tronolone Production's (Unhooked, Awake) does a great job at filling an instructional void at the intermediate level. Both the VHS and DVD have the unique and innovative options of being able to view either a full-screen version with the kite tricks front and center during the voiceover, or a split screen view with the host's instruction on the left, the action being completed on the right, and text below describing the scene. Definitely a maximum absorption value.
What really makes this video is the professional and technical insight from host Shannon Best. His extensive background in wakeboarding, and understanding of the mechanics of kiteboarding allows him to share some tips that you'll find nowhere else. He pays particular attention to hand and body positions that will definitley help you with all aspects of kiteboarding, and other sports as well.
The video is divided into three sections:
- Body Position - Heel-side - Unhooked - Toe-side - Switch - Kite Postion
- Load and Pop - 180s - Jumping -Â Jumping without the Kite
- Back Rolls - Toe-side Bakc Rolls - Rolls to Revert - Heel-side - Jibe and Air Jibe
This is Tronolone Production's sequel to Kiteboarding 101, their popular instructional video expertly hosted by Shannon Best. 201, as you might expect, takes off where 101 left off. It'll start with front spins and all the variations and progress from there. The DVD will have the same bonus viewing features including five different languages. And of course, Shannon Best will break things down for you like only he can do.
From snowkiting pioneer Paul Macaj. Once again Fuze Films raises the kites to bring you 20/10. From the deep champagne powder and natural terrain of the Wasatch Mountains in Utah to the rails and kickers of Colorado this one will have you trashing your lift tickets this year. 20/10 has new camera angles which include the truly nosebleed view of Chasta's helmet-cam. From freestyle to big mountain riding, backed with a sick soundtrack, 20/10 is sure to deliver. Featuring the riding of Guillaume "Chasta" Chastagnol, Dave Tyburski, James Brown, Paul "Motz" Macaj, Remi Meum, and more.
A group of snowkiters load into a tiny RV for a month-long trek across the Rocky Mountains. Filmed on location in Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Colorado, Project Cloud 9 showcases the daily adventures from riders who travel in search of wind, snow, and the ultimate natural terrain. From deep powder near the Kansas border, to roadside jibbing and climbing steep hills in the backcountry, this documentary will inspire anyone who loves kiting in the winter.
Produced by reknown snowkite pioneer Paul Macaj (The Next Chapter, 20/10), Paul has really upped his game this year by shooting in full high definition. In particular, Paul uses the new Panasonic hi-def camera which shoots high frame rates, producing stunning slow motion shots. And if there is one benefit to snowkiting in full-on freezing-ass winter conditions, it's that you are in some of the most beautiful, unspoiled natural places on the planet. That, and the clear mountain air and deep blue skies will make anyone want to take off for a month-long roadtrip through the Rockies.
Cloud 9 offers a huge variety of riding, from super smooth freestyle, to jibbing rails and natrual terrain, to freaky big air with 30 second hang times (I still can't get used to seeing that.). And the riders guide the viewer along with their commentary as they hit spot after spot after spot. It's clear that snowkiters participate in possibly the most unique niche sport in the world.

Big Windy Reviews: â€œWhen I watched â€œBig Windyâ€Â, it made me stoked that Iâ€™m a kitesurfer, we kite when itâ€™s windy & surf when itâ€™s not & it showcases our story with some of the most incredible water vision ever shot in kitingâ€Â - Ben Wilson
"Bilderback takes you out into the line up with him, putting you deep in the action like no one else can." -Jim Gaunt,Kiteworld Magazine.
The dvd's title is a reference to those m a g i c days when you score the perfect combination of wind and waves.
The who's who of wave riding deliver stellar performances including, Josh Mulcoy, Maurcio Abreu, Moehau Goold, Reo Stevens, John Amundson, Bertrand Fleury, Ryland Blakeny, Marc Ramsier and of course Ben Wilson himself. Supported by a cast of the usual suspects including Grant Baker, Jake Gordon and Martin Vari just to name a few.
Coming together showcases a plethora of wave riding locations including Micronesia, Indonesia, Chile, California, Hawaii, South Africa and Australia. This awesome collection of footage and exceptional level of riding will have you frothing for some overseas travel and on the phone to the local travel agent before the film even finishes.
Coming Together features both strapped and unstrapped riding - not something we have really seen in Ben's previous productions. Showcasing all aspects of the waveriding side of kiteboarding, not just the unhooked and unstrapped approach. Illustrating that there are many possibilities for getting out into the waves with a surfboard and a kite. Wilson has always said that he respects all forms of riding be it strapped or unstrapped and here's the proof.
"A film about some surfers living in the golden age of kiting." No truer words have been written about the description of this new film by legendary surf photographer John Bilderback and his wife Alexis. They scoured Western Australia, Indonesia, Tahiti, Cape Hatteras, and Hawaii for more than a year with some of the best kitesurfers in the world. The new DVD Lines is the result and did they ever deliver the goods. This is by far the most progressive and entertaining surf kiting footage ever.
Kiting with surfboards is certainly getting a lot of coverage in the magazines lately and this video finally puts it all right in your living room. Kiting in the surf has come of age. The cast of characters are all in it for the love of kiting with no attitude present at all. Hooked, unhooked, strapped, unstrapped, it's all good. And of course the locations are world-class, with the most legit tube rides of all time in Indo. But it's not all waves as John and Alexis covered the epic Real Watersports Triple S (Surf, Slicks, and Sliders) event from 2007 in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. This is the best non-event event in the world and everyone just rips their brains out.
