“Kiteboarding has definitely taken over my life. The sport means a lot to me and my main motivation is to keep making it bigger by showing people how amazing it is, competing to compare my kite skills with the other girls and get the chance to travel around the world!”
A skimboard is a small wooden/composite board that is used to slide on a thin layer of water. The skimboarder runs with their skimboard in hand, drops the board and jumps on. That motion will allow the skimboarder to slide on a shallow layer of water and perform skateboard-like tricks
Carving began in Europe with alpine snowboarding at the end of the eighties before being copied by the ski industry. It was proven that carving could be pushed to the extreme, with the entire body touching the snow, but the laid turn (Vitelli turn) remained a curiosity, something to be done on front-side to amuse friends or people at the terrace of a restaurant. Riders were often unable to get up or could do only one laid turn.
