Unhooked Popped Front Grab

Here we go – unhooked grabs always seem like a good idea until you decide to try one, and the task ahead seems a little bit more daunting than the initial light bulb moment.

Nose Grab Down Loop Transition

This one’s a veritable beauty! A well-executed, high, tweaked nose grab is a relatively simple move, yet one which deserves its place as an honorable don of style. Adding a down-loop and converting this into a transition is win-win all the way. Although this is a transition, you’re best to think of it as a jump. You’re looking to get…

The Bar We were incredibly impressed to see North Kiteboarding had brought their kite bar to the table. Kite bars are incredibly expensive to produce and have to perform in such a vast range of conditions it would have been easy for the brand to go the OEM route.
