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.

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.

The Spleene RIP Kiteboard represents a clear idea of how a Kiteboard needs to be shaped. We benefit from more than 30 years of shaping experience when we develope our product. This is especially noticable on the Spleene RIP Kiteboard, were always motivated to improve the standards for this board. No one tells us what’s good and what’s not. No matter if it’s easy planing, upwind performance, pop for jumps or smoothness or riding, only the sum of all these features will result in the perfect kiteboard for you. The new Spleene High Tech Line RIPs provide clear proof that you don’t need to waive anything to have a perfect kite day.
The Design Features:
The Spleene Door High Teck Lightwind Kiteboards shape detail is a double concave channel at the bottom of the boards. This allows for cleaner and earlier planing. When compared to a conventional double concave this underwater hull has got a parabolic cross section, specially designed by Spleene to provide significantly more grip due to the longitudinal guide of the sideways channel rails, even in choppy water. A development you can expect from Spleene. Only consistent development turns this concept into a Spleene High Tech Door. Compared to the previous models the new Door is now equipped with the Advanced Jet Bottom.
The Spleene Door Kiteboard stands for a unit of design and technology, which can only be provided by the original Door. As the inventor of the Door we have got this unique head start, which can be noticed immediately, in any condition, by any kiteboarder. The 2013 Spleene Door Kiteboards sporty overall impression coupled with a high level of comfort result in this special riding experience. Upwind and low-end abilities have set standards in kiteboarding within the last 10 years. Its concave outline, large surface and flat rocker line are responsible for this performance. However, these features alone are not sufficient by far to create a kiteboard that meets your and our demands.
The Design Features:
The specially shaped top side of the Spleen Zone Waveboard shifts the standing position substantially lower than in conventional waveboards and thereby improves the control of the board significantly. The unique shape of the “Zone” boards allows you to shape the scoop-rocker-line by shifting your body. The rails with large radius and Tucked under Edge Shape in the center of the board prevent miscut at radically surfed turns. The new zones are produced in solid Snow-Board-Construction and therefore almost indestructible. Test the new Spleene Zones and enjoy the incomparable Ride.

How do you define a radical kiteboard? By combining apparent contradictions. More performance with more control. More stability with less weight.

However, the rs is not only about performance. It’s also about how easy it can be called up and controlled. The result will convince you.

Skywatch Explorer 1 Windmeter Specifications:
The Sensei is the first ever two line relaunchable trainer kite that doesn't require the expense of a third line or anything else to relaunch. With The Sensei's relaunching abilities it saves you the time and energy of walking to and from when you crash the kite. The vents have been covered in mesh to prevent debris from entering the vents and hindering the relaunching of the Sensei.
This mesh also keeps the leading edge foil of the kite in the designed shape which makes the kite very stable and smooth in flight. The Sensei is the most stable & smoothest flying trainer on the market today! The kite has self-cleaning vents on the trailing edge so any sand that gets in it will automatically be dumped out while flying. The Kite comes complete and ready to fly with: Spectra lines, trainer bar, and bag. The 3m also comes with a safety leash attached to the bar.
When learning to kiteboard, 80% of the skills required to kiteboard are in controlling the kite. You need to learn to control your power source(the kite) before you can learn to ride the board successfully. Kiteboarding kites are too large and dangerous to attempt to fly on land. Trainer kites, like the Sensei are smaller renditions of the kiteboarding kites to allow you to safely learn kite control.
Sensei Trainer kite lines are 200 lbs. Prestretched Spectra with sleeved and sewn loops on both ends
Sensei Trainer kite lines Specs:
-200 lbs. test strength
-20 Meters long
-Sleeved and Sewn Loops on both ends
-Available in sets of 2 lines.
The PKS Self-Launch Sand Anchor is another true innovation in the world of kiteboarding and self reliance. If you live in a place where you can't drive on the beach and there are no viable options to hook your self- launch to, this is the product for you. This Self-Launch Beach Anchor can be used to self-launch your kite with nothing around but sand or rocks. This is truly the best Sand Anchor you'll find, because you don't have to drill as with a stake and it folds up into nearly the size of your hand.
Also, you can store it with your kite because there are not sharp points or edges to cut your gear unlike a dog stake! Don't puncture your very expensive and important gear with harder-to-use and more expensive equipment. Tough and durable material (similar to sand-weight bag) will take a beating and heavy-duty webbing will take the load of your kite and then some. Combine with the Self-Launch Tool or Carabiner and you're all set to launch on any beach or lake shore anywhere!
