It seems recently like so much of kiteboarding it is about freestyle and wake/park style riding and we seem to have completely forgotten how good it is to launch yourself into the air trying to get higher and higher with finesse and perfect control of your kite.
One of the best examples of female riders doing amazing old school tricks is our friend Angely Bouillot. Have you heard of her or seen her riding? It is just amazing to see how much this girl is in control and knows exactly where her kite is in the air. She’s got an amazing style and we advise you to watch her riding.
So whilst there is of course a lot of satisfaction in emulating tricks from other sports such as wakeboarding, don’t forget what makes kiteboarding unique and why a lot of us were drawn to it in the beginning.
