You might have seen many riders riding with headphones listening to music and it seems they manage to find an extra level of enthusiasm and motivation while they ride with music… so what’s it all about. Time to tell you why we are big fans of riding with music.

1. It provides motivation

Depending of course on the type of music you are listening it really can give you wings! You feel so ready to engage and to throw down your best moves. It might not necessary to have a very long musical session but give yourself at least 30 min with good music and focus on the moves you want to try… and you’ll see, it works!! (until you crash so hard and you loose everything).

2. You will be focused and in your own world

Of course you need to be aware of whats happening around you and try to be safe by still paying attentions to others. Don’t start your music while you are launching your kite so you are still able to listen and communicate with those around you. Once you get on the water and you are on your own you need only think of yourself and no one can disturb this beautiful moment.

3. You can sing!

Yes you can. And it is so good as nobody will be able to hear you! IJust like singing under the shower… you just don’t care and you can scream out loud! (if you are at the cable maybe wait until your are away from the dock to be sure nobody hears you).

4. It could protect your ear drum if you fall hard on the water

… especially if you are not wearing a helmet with ear pads on the side.

Having water going through your ears after a hard crash can be dangerous and very painful especially if you burst an ear drum. Your headphones will protect you even if you loose them straight after but at least they will absorb the shock and prevent water being forced through your ear canal.

5. Tricks always feel better when stomped in time to the beat

This actually works both ways as if you try to hard to make your tricks in time to the music it can through you off, but riding away to the beat if a great feeling amnd one to be savoured. It feels like you are the star of your own video taking place live just for you.

Personally I can’t ride without music anymore as it gives me so much extra power and jpy.

Also I have been though a whole load of waterproof headphones my choice of music player has always been the Waterfi waterproof iPod Shuffle. You can combined it with different types of waterproof headphones (or even non waterproof ones if you want) but I would advice you to choose the ones that fit and stay well in your ears as headphones falling out ruins the experience.

Happy listening.
