The Future of kiteboarding is here!
Countless hours over decades have been spent designing, testing and refining these products. A group of individuals from all corners of the globe have joined forces to create North Kiteboarding.
We have made it so far and yet, we are still simply at the starting line. I couldn't be more proud to be a part of this team.

Everyday ends up being more fun than the last, the simplicity of life is a wondrous thing, especially considering how unneceissarily complicated we tend make it...
When we allow ourselves to get embroiled with and bogged down by all the little things that bring us distress; when our journey seems halted by insurmountable obstacles in every direction, go do something fun. I grab my kite and fly off to wherever it takes me. After a session like this, everything becomes simple again.
Enjoy the summertime fun and never give in to the fear of daunting challanges nor to the little trials and tribulatuions of every day life.

Fly baby fly, It just keeps on going up! Never have I felt a kite that loops like this. I'm very thrilled to share the new North Kiteboarding kites with you all soon. This is a kiteloop and handlepass from the 2019 Red Bull #KingOfTheAir.

This, I believe, is the biggest handle pass I've ever done...Stoked to get the highest scoring trick of the day with it and the highest heat score for day 1 at Redbull #KINGOFTHEAIR.
My new North Kiteboarding and Mystic gear has exceeded my highest expectations and I am amped!

Bio
Jesse Richman was born on July 22, 1992, in Maui, Hawaii, to Joel and Elaine Richman. Growing up with his older brother by 3 years Shawn and his younger sister by 4 years Eva. Jesse was always physically active, pushing the limits from an early age, He was especially drawn to the ocean. Starting out in the water surfing and then to windsurfing Jesse couldn't get enough. While he would wait for his dad to take him to the beach Shawn and he would build ramps and jumps out of various items in the back yard and jump them with bicycles and skate boards. Shortly before Jesse turned 10 he got an offer from an old time family friend, Joe Koehl (pronounced Joe Cool) an iconic windsurf and kitesurf pioneer, to come fly a new kite of his. After Jesse had nearly flown away and felt out the kite Joe Told Joel and Elaine that he was a natural born Kitesurfer and would one day be world champion.

From there on out it was all about kitesurfing. Jesse spent all day every day thinking about kiting. After school he jammed down to the beach with Shawn and Joel and they all became hooked on kiting. Soon it became apparent that Shawn and Jesse might have a future in the sport as pro's. The three of them started out small with local contests and then hit up the big time after the boys started winning. Going to events from San Francisco to Texas to Venezuela. In 2007 Jesse made history with his record breaking jump in San Francisco, flying through the air for an incredible 22 seconds, blowing away the old hang time record of 13 seconds. Jesse started to get bigger and better and his busy schedule reflected his growing success in the kitesurfing world. Just before starting high school he switched to an online based school so he could travel as much as he needed and still achieve a high school education.

In 2008 Jesse decided to try out his first ever European event in France. This was the first stop on the Kite Board Pro World Tour (KPWT). He was not sure what to expect and wanted to do the whole tour but was leaving this decision up to how he did in France. Sure enough… He won the event. With his eyes focused on a world title Jesse set out that year and competed on the World Tour, having stops in places like: Greece, Turkey, Italy, Brazil, Morocco and more.
At the end of the year Jesse was crowned kitesurfing's Overall World Champion.

Jesse then went on to win the title once more in 2009. As well as winning the newly formed International Kiteboarding Association's (IKA) Overall World Title that was sanctioned by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF).

Today Jesse is one of the busiest and most sought after riders in the sport.
