The accomplished few are kiting waves without straps. This is the new norm for kitesurfing. If you have ever been a beginner kiter, or think back to your first lessons, you will understand that this is pretty amazing.
The Evolution of Strapless Kitesurfing
19 June 2017 | Kiteboarding
In 2006, the Mauritius Kitesurf International Competition opened the way to a new discipline in kiteboarding.
The event got underway at One Eye, the legendary reef break located at Le Morne, and the invitees were blessed by a perfect grand swell. They went out with their kites and surfboards and... got barreled.
In the next decade, Airton Cozzolino, Keahi de Aboitiz, Matchu Lopes, Patri McLaughlin, and Sebastian Ribeiro pushed the new discipline forward and opened a new chapter for kiteboarding.
