Have You Seen a Shot Like This? -- The October 2009 Kiteboarding Photo of the Month.
October 04, 2009


This month brings us a photo that is unlike almost all of the photos out there. This photo does a good job capturing the riders perspective, which is a very hard thing to do (and is very rare to boot).


A Shot Unlike Any I Have Ever Seen...

Even though we can see a little of the riders view, itís impossible to capture what the rider is feeling. The immense power of the kite strengthening and eventually hurling you off the water to heights you canít imagine is one of the most addictive feelings I have ever experienced. Iím sure you will agree if youíve been there.

Because this photo does such a good job putting you in the riderís shoes, itís easy to remember how a move like this feels - thatís why itís such a great shot!

Do you have a photo that absolutely trumps this one? How about one that captures the true beauty of kiteboarding? Or even one that is just plain fun?! If so, I'd love to give it a chance to be the next Photo of the Month Ė just send it to

In the Works...
