Kiting vs. Windsurfing!

Epic Kites founder, Dimitri Maramenides caught up with me during the heavy SW JRidge session last weekend and captured some fun aerial overflights out on the water!  Pretty cool perspective from flying high with a GoPro and a kite kit in 30+ mph wind!

Check it out!


We will have to continue to work on this perspective to capture some cool action including loops and other moves while he flies high overhead!  Who needs a helicopter when you have a kiter who can fly high?!  : )

PS:  Also caught a really fun wave sesh yesterday at Rmp 30! 4.5m Legend with the Tempo 92 was a perfect combo (I still have the 2010 Tempo 92 for sale, see left side bar Gear for Sale section for details!) for some fun aerial and wave riding action!  Bright sunshine, upper 70s air temp, and warming ocean water made for a killer day!  If any photos come in to OBX Beach Life, I will post them up!

Great video... you are brave Bill... I've ridden with the D man in waves, one hand on the bar the other holding the camera... What could possibly go wrong?

Well..., he did land on me once! Luckily he kept his feet up when he hit my rig. Fun times! :)

Awesome. We were trying something similar down here in SNC. Around minuted 2:00 you can watch me crash a forward attempt.
