How to train like a king | Jesse Richman

Jesse Richman - Train like a King Kiteworld Magazine 2016

“World Champion”, “World Record holder”, “King of the Air”. . . kiter Jesse Richman has added a hefty stack of impressive titles to his belt over the years. Tireless in his mental and physical training, always pushing the limits, Jesse is as committed and fearless as they come.

Whether surfing 30-foot swells at Jaws (Peahi, Maui), kiting across the entire Great Barrier Reef and flying upwards of 60-feet on his Naish Torch, if something involves extreme kiting, you can be sure Jesse is there to meet the challenge head on.

Though he makes it all look easy, don’t be fooled; there is a substantial amount of planning and preparation involved to sustain the level of extreme sport athlete. Catch a glimpse of what it takes with this “day-in-the-life” footage—filmed by Xensr on Maui—while Jesse prepares for a major session at Jaws and trains for Red Bull King of the Air.
