Alberto Rondina : Having Fun video

Alberto Rondina is probably one of the most laid back riders on the PKRA, and it also shows on the water. The italian rider from theCabrinha house has a very good, fluid style and is very consistant, no matter what the conditions are. This is probably the secret of his overall 3rd place on the PKRA tour...
Alby brings us here in a little Mexican session, with just enough picante to make it good!

Pedro Henrique

Find out what Mauritius, Brazil and Portugal have in common in this video. If you haven’t heard about Pedro Henrique, Best Kiteboarding wave rider from Brazil but living in Portugal you should probably start from reading the interview we have made with him during 2012 KSP stage in Guincho. If you know Pedro, and most likely you already do you should definitely watch this video right away.
It shows Pedro ripping it in Mauritius, Guincho and on Carcavelos beach near Lisbon. He surfs, he kitesurfs and he is definitely one of the most professional and hard working riders we have ever met.

The Filthy West - Film by BWS

This documentary style feature film from BWS is completely different in terms of what they have produced in the past, although they scored some very memorable sessions during the filming for it, the vision of the film wasn't focused on the waves per say, but more the adventure of life on the road with your best Mates. The West Australian coastline if you're a surfer or kitesurfer really capture's the essence of this and the boys had the trip of a lifetime.
Featuring - Ben Wilson, Josh Mulcoy, Ian Alldredge, Ryland Blakeney, Dave Delroy - Carr, Ollie Jacobsen, Darren McCagh and Jason Wolcott

How to do: Hand 360 Shove it by Pechi

This is another easy progression to your jumps with nose grab.
1.For beginning get ready for smaller jump.
2.Get comfortable speed and kite high (at 1.) back hand in the middle of the bar. Front hand low ready to grab the board and bend your knees.
3.Pop and grab the board on the nose. While doing that pull little on bar to get lift and move the kite over twelve.
4.When you know where you will be landing, try to throw the board forward, so it spins around horizontally, complete 360 degree rotation before hitting the water.
5.Land on the board, bend knees to suspend landing. if you under or over rotated you shove it, adjust your direction (poing the board downwind) and keep pulling on your back hand to keep the power (loop it;-) and ride away.
Shove it is cool classic move. So go for it!
Take care.
ps: Everybody is welcome to come practise to Aruba !
please check my spellings;-)
