What is Kiteboarding?
There is a sport that is like surfing, wakeboarding, and flying all at once. If you’ve ever been to Pismo Beach on a windy day, you will see over two dozen kiteboarders in the water or doing tricks high above it. Most of these riders are ordinary people that are simply addicted to this amazing extreme sport called kiteboarding.
Kiteboarding uses the wind to combine the aspects of surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and windsurfing into one extreme ocean sport. The kite, anywhere from 6-20 square meters, powers the rider through the water. The kite will have either 4 or 5 lines up to 27 meters long that connect to a control bar, which the rider pushes and pulls to control the kite in any direction. The bar hooks into the rider’s harness, which is most often worn around the waist. A board similar to a wakeboard or surfboard enables the rider to fly over the water.

“As a photographer, there can be a lot of photos taken before you finally get the frame you are satisfied with. Water photography is especially tricky. Surging water and rips are constantly trying to pull you out of position which may make you miss out what’s going on in front of you.
On a solid swell, Teahupoo is unquestionably one of the heaviest waves in the world. But even in a smaller swells it still holds power. You could be sitting comfortably in position when a wide east bowl hits, and that’s when you have to dive deep to avoid a pummeling by the turbulent white water.
A cloud might block out the sun for that critical moment, or it’ll all line up with the action and positioning, but there’ll be that little water droplet rendering the shot useless. But when it all comes together, one single frame can make a whole day’s work worthy.”
