Surfboard Heel to Toe Carve with a Down Loop

It would be a shame to learn one without the other! And depending on your preference, it’s not written in stone which is easier to conquer first, the toe to heel or the heel to toe. Therefore, it makes sense to give you both options to work on, even though a lot of kiters will feel more confident trying first...

Back Loop from Blind

Some time has passed since we last covered a move that fits into the loosely labelled hooked-in freestyle category. Not everyone is keen on unhooking for various reasons, whether it be the conditions they ride in, the kit they own, the potential consequences, or even that it just doesn’t rock their boat - but that doesn’t mean that freestyle moves...

Twin Tip Duck Tack

A rather fun transition, the love child of two moves! You could look at it as the twin tip variant of the directional duck tack, but equally it is essentially an on water, or un-aerial back loop transition. In it’s own right a smooth way of changing direction, and a possible method of learning the key movements to the duck...

Kitesurfing Reviews - North Kiteboarding Orbit Pro 9m 2024
North Kiteboarding Orbit Pro

In my opinion, the Orbit Pro represents a kite that has been long awaited by a small demographic of the kiteboarding industry. I believe the term 'overpowered' has been overused for many years. Advanced riders have redefined what it means to ride 'overpowered' and, aside from a few exceptions, have almost made the term redundant. The big air movement of...
