Checking out after another epic Kite Week on @namotuisland. We didn’t have the insane swell and wind of the last trip but still scored some fun conditions and spread the foiling bug... Massive thank you to the Namotu staff, my crew, and most of all our guests. Back again in a few weeks for more!

One kite, two very different ways. But when you think about it, the same key functions apply to both wave kiting and foiling. Our newest kite, the V1BE is a single-strut drift machine designed for wave kiting and foiling. We've been playing around with them in Fiji the last week and had a heap of fun.

I’ve just arrived home after the first Namotu Island Kite Week of the year. Thank you to our incredible guests, the Namotu staff, my crew and Stu Gibson who chased everyone around to capture their surfing, kiting, foiling, snorkelling etc etc.... I’ll share some more photos from the week over the next few weeks before we return at the end of the month to do it all again.

Another one from THE DAY. We’ve had wind and waves of a friendlier size the last few days so the conditions here on @namotuisland have been keeping everyone happy 👌 #bwkiteweek #namotu #straplesskitesurfing #theoriginalwavekite #cloudbreak
