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 instruction by Real Kiteboarding
Welcome to the second 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. Now you're on the water and are ready to step up and do some more serious riding. What may be the most unique aspect of Evolution is not the specific moves and techniques within kiteboarding it teaches you, but that it lays out the most effective way you should go about learning these things. Other DVDs probably wont teach you the specifics of circuit training, or doing downwinders, or how to practice your boardriding, but if you really want to learn quickly and correctly, pay attention to these early sections. Plan out your sessions and stick to your plan - that's the way to get to the next level safe and fast.
Evolution goes into detail about riding both ways - regular and switch, the stop, slide, heelside, and toeside transitions, sheeting and safety systems, riding stance, and finally, the holy grail of kiteboarding - riding upwind. And just like Zero to Hero, the bonus sections are extensive. There is an Evolution level Coaches Tips sections where all the Real coaches share their kiteboarding learning and teaching experiences, giving you several different perspectives. There's massive tech sections on both kites and boards, which will be very helpful as you get to the point in your riding where you can understand the differences in equipment. The kite tech section is especially helpful as it lays out the differences and similarities between 4-line, 5-line, and bow or SLE kites. It teaches you how each are rigged, tuned, and relaunched from the water. At the moment, Evolution is the only kiteboarding DVD that addresses and utilized the new bow kites.
Helpful graphics and every conceivable POV angle - trackingcam, helmetcam, overheadcam, barcam - is used to best demonstrate both proper, and improper techniques. Keep your learning curve vertical with Evolution.

Kiting in the Surf, by Real Kiteboarding: Beginning through Advanced Ocean Riding
Welcome to the fourth installment in the5 DVD instructional series from Real Kiteboarding - the largest lesson center in the world. All five DVDs have won Telly Awards for outstanding acheivement in independent video production. 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. The third DVD is Joyride which transforms you into the kiteboarder you always envisioned you would be when you first picked up the sport, meaning you're now throwing down with all variations of jumping and aggressive riding. Next stop: the waves.
Real's Surf DVD is the first of it's kind in kiteboarding, an instructional video dedicated entirely to riding waves. Although it would seem the direction the sport has taken in the past year is decidedly surf oriented, particularly in the magazines, Real Kiteboarding has incorporated surf instruction into it's lesson programs for several years. Now they have openned the books from their highly touted 3 day Surf camp into this new DVD.
The main portion of the DVD is divided up into three chapters: Surf 101, Surf Skills, and Surf Sessions. Surf 101 is just what it sounds like, an introduction to all the issues you may face when first learning to get into the waves, including tides, currents, swell types, bottom types, wind and wave relationship and many other considerations that will ultimately affect your session.
Surf Skills teaches all the new skills that you will need, and how to modify some of your existing skills to be successful in the waves. Just a few of the topics covered are circuit training, heading out through the surf, absorbing whitewater, duck diving, kite power, turns, staying upwind, and troubleshooting and safety concerns.
Surf Sessions lays it all on the line - jumping off waves, turning on waves, surf style, staying on the face, kite looping, controlling the power, freestyle, aerials, and yes, even getting barrelled. And with all Real instructional DVDs there are massive bonus sections. These bonus sections ensure that you are not just getting kiteboarding instruction, but are also getting some of the more difficult to find information that advance your knowledge and comfort about being a kiteboarder. Always a favorite, is the Coaches Tips section, where the Real coaches tell of their trials and tribulations, and ultimately their successes, that have turned them into some of the most confident and respected riders around. Other bonus sections include Equipment for Ocean Riding (Yes, this video is bow kite enabled), and Keeping it Surfside, which discusses the importance of becoming familiar with and comfortable in the ocean.
The Surf DVD was filmed in the beautiful British Virgin Islands and will not only teach you how to successfully up your level in the surf, but will also open your eyes to the true worldwide potential of this sport.

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.

Autofocus - $19.95
*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
- Kite Postion
- Load and Pop
-Â Jumping without the Kite
- Back Rolls
- Toe-side Bakc Rolls
- Rolls to Revert
- Jibe and Air Jibe
Plus a waveriding bonus section.

by Peter Trow, Trowvision Productions
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.
