sounds like big john got himself a front row seat at the greatful deadman show with an encore of a little didy about "board off by the hand"-adesguy does sum pretty airshow 4 sure. Across the pond we stuck to the water for downwinder #3 this week. laid down the traks to the tune of a 10m while rollin in to "blinded by the light". tripped out to the crazy azz sunset that made all objects go orange. feelin like the kings a leon right now.

John, did it look something like this?

I do not respect Toby (the owner/operator of Kiteforum) and "inventor" of airstyle. That is because this is all kiteboarding is to him. Big kites, he only rides a 18 and 16 and only does these dangle......whatever you want to call it.

Adrien on the other hand has come a long way since I first met him on a trip to Hatteras.

maybe his first board off

another trip to hatteras a couple aprils ago.

He is most likely smarter than you and can hold his own on the water, can't wait to see it on display in the OBX coming up soon.

Haha, always those fucking comparisons to Toby! I'm more like Dimitri, but nooooo, don't bring him up or anything.

Thanks John, I appreciate it. Maybe you caught my Jesus walk? I'm starting to get the hang of it and landing it more often, not quite in the 80-90% range where I want, but I'll get there.

Really pumped for Hatteras in 2 weeks. You comin' Jens?

yeah I will be there, I had a little scare with my knee a couple weeks ago. But nothing worth opening it up for so I am recovering and should be able to ride by then.

Jesus walk, people are going to be lining up to be taught that one, impressive kite control is required for that.


Dimitri is a much more fare and accurate comparison. That guy rips in all facets of the sport.

It's a North bar:

Check out that little loop. I'm not sure if I'd feel safe with that, but I do like stopper balls, they do the same thing, but you can always push away and I've had to use it.
