It’s back to normal after the festive period and being a Monday means it’s time for Rou’s Intriguing Beings Podcast. This week he’s chatting to Australia’s first kiteboarder, Ian Young. Ian was playing with kites in the ’80s and started experimenting with wave ski’s pulling kites in the early ’90s. Then he discovered what Cory Roesler was up to with his delta kites and waterskis and the rest they say is history!

Rou and Ian chat about all sorts in this episode from those early forays into the sport to the huge downwinder Ian undertook from Perth to Exmouth in WA covering over 1200km!
