Tandem Kitesurfing – Double Pleasure
Tamatoa Gillot, French waterman and Ozone team rider has developed a kite harness which allows him to carry a person. Don’t discard this idea as some useless stunt it’s actually a great thing if you want to experience kiteboarding but for some reason cannot do it yourself.
In this episode you’ll see Tamatoa kite with Léa Bernadet former high-level skier. At the age of 19 years, Lea has been the victim of an alpine accident that made her paralyzed. “Putting up Lea was intense. I totally obscured her handicap, then I realized that the position for a quadriplegic in handisport is a sitting one, at the opposite of what we were doing! It was a lot of emotion for both of us”.
This unique project brings double pleasure to the sport and concedes an opening on the freestyle discipline. Watch this short footage and find out more about all the fun and the craziest things that is possible to experience in tandem kitesurfing.
