The Lagoon Ranger

"In a world of chaos ... one should look after the poor kitesurfer that are crashing together! From the poor souls that don't know what they are doing, because no one told them,  to the kiters that are cut out and have no way to avoid crashing on people going around without looking where they are going, someone has to do something. luckilly the Lagoon Ranger is on the mission! 

Here are the two easy rules that the pros go by in the kite spots, that allow hundreds of people to share a tiny lagoon:
1) watch where you are going: just like on a highway when you switch lanes, you don't have priority when you change direction ,because no one can know when you will do it. So please, before changing side, just look if someone is flying towards you or preparing to jump, and if there is someone: just let them go and go when they are safe and you too. 
2) Look upwind, you are in the way of anybody upwind of yourself, so if you don't want people to crash on you be aware of what or who is coming to you. Sometimes its just a kite flying with no one attached to it, sometimes, its a beginner that lost control. If you stay downwind of everybody all the time though, you are just blocking them because they can't do anything without putting you in danger, at some point, they will just put you in danger... you will be amazed how many people can ride in a small spot without any problems like this, and everyone rides much more! 

So look where you are going or you will be lassoed and tied to a tree!"

Patagonia: "The island of everything"

Nice video about the beauty of the coast of Patagonia; this land offers the perfect setting for many outdoor activities. 

When you’re exploring far off places, it helps to be ready for just about everything. On a recent sailing trip through a remote part of the Pacific, a crew from Patagonia made the most of the ever changing conditions, scoring all time kiting, fishing, surfing and diving along with a few perfect barrels in some of the clearest water in the world. 

Featuring Kohl Christensen, Hank Gaskell, Jason Slezak, Reo Stevens and more.

"Do you suffer from Wanderlust? We know we do... This is a video from a recent trip that I did with Sophie Mathews to Indonesia to visit Bali for surfing, and off to explore a remote chain of Island's in the Suluwasi region. Namely 'Wakatobi' resort and private island. Known for its world class diving it has not yet been exposed for the amazing Kiteboarding conditions that it has to offer in season. 

Some of the most beautiful and untouched beaches in the world coupled with a consistent 15-25knot breeze and a chain of islands that provides the ultimate playground for divers and Kiters alike. We spent two weeks exploring this paradise..."

"STRU" 1st Kitesurfer at giant Nazaré

Nazare’s monster wave in Portugal is no small feet. Many a surfer has tried and failed while a few have succeeded and now hold glorious world-records. 

But in our books, Nuno Stru Figueriredo gets massive points for being the first man to ride it with a kite. 
Job well done!

This is the story of Stephan, skilled surfer who started kitesurfing not to sacrifice the windy days, not good for surfing. I leave to the producer of the video story, L/F productions. 

"Stephan Figueiredo added Kite surfing to his skills list about 6 years ago. He started from scratch, not knowing one darn thing about the sport. After his first day in the water, he was hooked, even if he could only tack out and had no idea how to get back to land. From that day on he dedicated himself to kitesurfing as much as he has dedicated his life to surfing. 

He found out that all he wanted was to kitesurf like he surfs. Use the qualities of one to compliment the other. Use the speed of the kite to make his sections, and the fluidity of surfing to crank out his turns. It's a tricky business, a maneuver you can do so smoothly surfing you will completely botch kite surfing. And things you can do kite surfing such as aerials, make speedy sections, and come spitting out of impossible barrels, doesn't exactly happen surfing. But who says you can't keep trying? 

This video is a compilation of Stephan's surfing and kite surfing. Really, the idea of the video came from Stephan himself wanting to analyze how close he was getting to what he wanted and to see how he could improve. What do you think?"

Cato the Viking

Here’s the original story from a diary of Cato Olsen (Wainman Hawaii team rider) and his winter season adventures. 

 "Five years back me and my family decided to move to the best kite spot in Norway, Jæren Norway. The west coast area called Jæren offers amazing waves, and a lot of different spots all along the coastline. Where I came from there where no wave spots, only flat water so I was then totally hooked to freestyle. It didn't take long before I got my first Magnum surf board, and since then it`s been all about the waves for me. 

 The wave season is during winter, so it can get really cold some days! You need to have the right gear, and the Viking spirit. During the winter storms the wild North Sea can produce waves raging as big as 20+ feet, and it can get pretty violent and dangerous along Jæren coastline. But most of the time it`s pretty safe, and you can expect epic surf! 

The North Sea produces waves true most of the winter, and you can get world class waves both for ordinary surf and kitesurf. It`s such an amazing place to live! I`ve been shooting a lot this winter, and have put together a little video from the epic winter days along Jæren coastline"

Untouched Territories

"When we started kiting in 2003, there were only a few of us riding. Since then, the sport has developed very quickly; it’s now known by the general public and its appeal keeps on growing. Riding virgin spots has become increasingly difficult. Discoveries tend to be chance encounters.

With this video series "Untouched Territories" we wish to embark you on a journey towards unusual landscapes and share the feelings we enjoy when kitesurfing. After 15 years of riding these sensations have remained intact. This first episode was shot in Vinalhaven, an island of the coast of Maine in the North East of the United States. We were brought there while shooting a documentary following the steps of the artist Robert Indiana, one of the pioneers of the Pop Art movement. You must probably know his LOVE sculptures, exhibited on the streets of the world’s largest cities. The shots of this episode are taken from a web documentary that will be released this year, in 2016.

Who are the AURIOL brothers?

Antoine was World Champion of the Kiteboard Pro World Tour (KPWT) in 2010. Since then, he stepped away from the competition world in order to dedicate himself fully to what matters most to him: living a free life. He develops projects around kitesurfing, travelling and fashion, which are broadcasted through the media and social media. His motive is simple: to discover the world, meet people and share his experiences. His freeriding videos follow the same philosophy by focusing on style and esthetics rather than raw performance. Antoine is also a host on the French TV program”la Quête de vents” (The quest of winds), a documentary series broadcasted on TV5 Monde, Ushuaia TV and distributed worldwide by Arte.

Thomas, his "little brother", is an Artist. He is a Fine-Arts graduate who paints every day and kites when the wind blows. He is also a videographer and together with Antoine they produce numerous projects in which they express their unique vision of kiteboarding."
