A fun day at Kite Beach , Maui. the wind was light, 15-20 ish, so no huge jumps , but still great for learning new tricks, I definitively had my share of crashes trying some new moves,( not gonna show you though, too embarassing) Lou was out throwing a frisbee to himself ( this is the latest rage here ... kite frisbee). Ian throwin' down some great unhooked moves , Nick got the highest jump, and Kato best jibe!
We took the chance to interview last year's kitesurfing course racing world champion and this year's vice world champion Adam Koch. Adam is one of the pioneers of early kitesurfing. In 1998 a lot of Germans will remember his 13-second flight during the world cup at Fehmarn, and some years later he jumped of a aircraft carrier. In the last few years he concentrated on pushing the course racing discipline in kitesurfing. Adam rides Ozone Kites,Mike's Lab boards and Rista fins.
