#KitersInIsolation – We’re taking you back to when Sam Light was crowned the champion of the KPL for the second year in a row. This video is a salute to those days; no better way to honour the accolades of the present with a nod to the past! Times are tough, and some of us might, undoubtedly, be feeling a little anxious right now. Good news is we’re all in this together! Let’s stay positive, active, healthy and support each other. As most of us are working from home, we’ve decided to post some of the best kiteboarding movies of all time, so if you’ve got a favourite, please share the love, and send us the link!

We’ll be posting a kite film every day, so you don’t lose the stoke!

You can see them all here –

#kitersinisolation together we can get through this!

Words by Alex Fox

“Five years ago, I was asked by a kiteboarding magazine to write a column for one of their issue. I remember being torn on what to write about. They gave me free rein and didn’t have an assignment or any real direction. I was knee-deep in my “career”, and I wanted to talk about other riders that inspired me and people that kited for love. At this time, Sam Light had just gotten on Slingshot, and I think we had gone on one trip together. I was hyped that we were now teammates because it kind of gave me something to chase, and it pushed me to get better. I came across the article not long ago and here is what I wrote: “I’ve had the pleasure of getting to spend a fair amount of time with Hayling Island’s favourite son after his recent signing with Slingshot, and he has blown me away. Sam has come along way in the past couple years from a (not so) average PKRA rider to one of the heaviest hitters in the park movement. This dude has claimed the top spot at every single kicker and rail event out there, pretty impressive stuff when you consider he has also pieced together some of the best and biggest video parts in kiteboarding. From Dynamics to Island Time with Dre, Sam has been a busy guy dominating kiteboarding on all facets. With a style that is as consistent as it is beautiful, I don’t think there are many riders out there that I would rather watch. When you can find someone who can span the spectrum of style and technicality, you know it’s something special.”
