BY REAL KITEBOARDING
WORDS ? Sandra Davidson
After the initial elation of those first wobbly runs I now have to knuckle down to actually learning to kitesurf. First comes the holy grail ? riding upwind, then edging, transitions, riding switch, ollies, stance and speed control.
It's time to reach for Evolution: REAL's first rate follow up to their first steps instructional DVD, Zero 2 Hero. Evolution breaks down these next important steps into minute detail. But no yawning or nodding off here, instead strap in for the ride. Using unique close-up tracking footage and inventive shooting angles, the hardest working instructors in kiteboarding provide you with the closest thing to experiencing your first virtual reality of being a kiteboarder.
Many years of teaching experience gained by the guys at Real Kiteboarding ooze from every comprehensive chapter of this three-hour (+bonus) DVD, and coupled with Zero 2 Hero this is a hard-to-beat package. I am no longer geek of the beach.. I am Queen of the water... well, I will be. Three more DVDs still to go in the REAL series. Watch this space!
