From the beginning days of Kiteboarding when the kites had two lines and the only way to slow down was edge really hard, hold on till it was at the edge of the wind window and that failing LET GO!. Don Montague the godfather of kiting had been chatting with Bruno Legaignoux and Cory Rosselier had taken the skis to Hawaai from The Gorge in Oregon and within a very brief space in time the world wanted to kitesurf.
From riding these kites that would kill you to the introduction of the “chicken loop ” with a depower system and the 5th line, kites have evolved dramatically with almost 100% depower and super easy re-launch. Now we have a possible glimpse into the future and though not entirely elemental sure looks like fun.
