Collectively we can go farther, push harder, and fly higher than any perceived limits society has placed upon us. I'm honored to be a member of this team of modern day explorers, on the eternal quest to break boundaries in our worlds.

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.

We took flight and I successfully landed in 2nd Place at the 2019 Red Bull #KingOfTheAir! Very amped to stand on the podium, and to win the Mystic Most Extreme Move of the event!
The level of riding was insane, placing next to these legends is nothing short of an honor. It's almost scary how hard everyone is pushing the limits, each year we are raising the bar and finidng more control in critical moments. Stoked to see no major injuries at the event and to have everyone walk away hungry for more.
Can't thank North Kiteboarding and Mystic enough! I literally had four days of riding on their gear before the event. I had no choice but to put the gear to the test without knowing what would happen... wow was I not disappointed, gear worked better than I could have imagined. Now, its time to get to work with North and put the whole 2020 gear line to the test!

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!

My epochal journey on the world-renowned Naish Team has come to an end. It’s been nothing short of an honor to work and ride with such a great family. Naish and all that make the company what it is, has supported me on my wild adventures, and I want to extend a massive Thank You to Team Naish.

As for where that takes us, well, all I can say is, spine-tingling things are stirring on the horizon.

Sharing life with amazing people and communities is what catapults our happiness to the next level. There is no substitute for genuine connection. It is the authenticity of our experience that makes it unforgettable. When we look past our differences and put our minds and hearts together; our mission, our day, our moment, all of a sudden evolves and becomes better. We find a flow when the synergy is right and the vibe is contagious. This is a feeling that we get when we know everyone on the team feels the same thing. When we find ourselves in a group flow, anything is possible and fun is effortless. Most of us have experienced a crazy sensation like this, whether it be on small or large scale, within a family, with friends, on epic adventures and even in a professional setting. The people we are with and the vibe that we generate as a group, make all the difference.

This rollercoaster of life is wild and has such unexpected turns that it can be hard to make sense of the rhythm. Some lose faith, others put up walls, I know we all do, but is it necessary? It may seem easier to protect oneself from the majority of the world, only revealing our authentic selves to a select few, amongst whom we feel safe. Yet, I have found, in my own life, that taking a risk by being openly genuine to everyone I encounter yields such a greater and more interesting outcome. This approach, allows another world to unfold at your fingertips. The human experience is something we all share and so it is the connections we make through honest interaction that bring us the greatest high of all.

I have been incredibly blessed, to have had adventures that dreams are made of, but none would be the same without the people I was surrounded by at every turn. The rare circumstance that has enabled us to know this planet, to live in its nature and behold its awe-inspiring beauty is something we can all relate to and thanks to this, we can all relate to one another.

Thank you for being a part of my adventure and for having me on yours. There is nothing we can't do with the right people and the right mindset.

Happy Holidays!

Are you ready to join me for an all expenses paid adventure to Maui? Find out how you can win below and at the same time help save the lives of many people in need around the world.

Life is a gift. Not so long ago, the things we now perceive as commonplace, we could never have dreamed to be possible. http://bit.ly/Kiteboarding_Paradise_Giveback

Our world is filled with beauty and opportunity. Every day we are blessed to experience an incredible reality that not everyone on our planet is equally provided with. One of the greatest gifts we have these days is the ability to help the less fortunate; those in need, all with the simple click of a button. Modern day technology has afforded us with such an intricate level of interconnectedness that in mere seconds we can change the course of people’s lives for the better.

All over the world, there are those who do not have access to one of the most fundamental of life-sustaining sources, one which, many of us take for granted; Clean Water. People in these areas are forced to drink water that leads to terrible sickness, devastates communities and results in unconscionable deaths that have affected generations. We have, what some see as an opportunity and what others see as a duty - to do our part to make this world a better place. http://bit.ly/Kiteboarding_Paradise_Giveback

Today I share with you a simple and straightforward way to help people gain access to clean water. With as little as $10, you can make a significant difference in the lives of people in over 13 countries, by donating and sharing this post.

How it works:

1. Click the link and enter

2. Choose your donation level and your epic gift

3. Wait to see if you're the lucky winner.

4. If you win, grab another lucky person and select your dates with the YesWild team. Once chosen they will fly you out to Maui, pick both of you up and get you ready for our epic adventure together. You will stay in a 4-star hotel, get to experience Maui's most exceptional cuisine and we will get Wild. For an entire day, I will take you around on an adventure you won't forget, perfectly tailored to your desires.

5. Fly home feeling stoked!

6. Do this all in the name of helping people get access to clean water.

80% of net profits from this fundraiser go to the Thirst Project. The Thirst Project builds wells that serve communities of up to 500 people for 40+ years. 100% of funds donated to the Thirst Project go to building water projects and educating the youth to rock the clean water cause. All Thirst Project administrative costs are covered by individual donors. Over the years, the Thirst Project has constructed 2,217 water projects, served 330,863 people in 13 countries and raised over 8.8 million dollars. http://bit.ly/Kiteboarding_Paradise_Giveback

Together we can change the way the world works. We have the power to save lives, enlighten ourselves, learn from others and teach our peers. Together we can make the most of this life and protect our planet for generations to come.

Thank you for your support.

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.
