Kitesurfing – A true beginning of the sport in 1958

23 March 2013 | 4:49 pm

Kitesurfing is much older than you think. People have been attaching themselves to a kite, going high, doing old style tricks like a “dead man”, “handle pass” or a “board off”, “hooked back roll”, “unhooked” in 1958!

The pioneers of the sport called “sky skiing” at that time did all we do today including attaching a camera ala GoPro to their kite So nothing is new it seems.
Watch and enjoy!
