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.

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.
