Kiteboarding: Where it’s at…

Just guess who took the Cover Shot Photo of Keahi de Aboitiz?

Yep, you are right!!! ; ))

I m proud of being part of this great book with my photography.

Kiteboarding - Where it's at...

 

Over the past fifteen years, the extreme sport of kiteboarding has developed from an unlikely concept into a worldwide phenomenon. Kiteboarding: Where it s at… tracks these changes and looks at the various tangents that the sport has taken.

With stunning photography, each part reviews one of the four main disciplines within the sport: Freestyle, Waveriding, Wakestyle and Course Racing. Within each part is a background to the discipline, the kit, profiles of prime locations, key events and some of the riders and brands who have come to define the sport.

With over 200 shots from the best photographers in the game, and comprehensive access to all of the main players within the sport, author Alex Hapgood has ensured that Kiteboarding: Where it s at… is the most comprehensive and visually stunning representation of the sport to date.

‘An excellent overview of our sport with great imagery. Essential reading.
Aaron Hadlow

‘A beautiful and comprehensive look at kiting. Drawn from a broad collection of the sport s best shooters, this book is full of great images of a strikingly visual and technically challenging sport.’
John Bilderback

Kiteboarding: Where it s at… is a great representation of our sport. It s awesome to have a book like this that shows the roots of the sport and what it has become today. Stunning photography and a real achievement.’
Keahi de Aboitiz

 

I am stoked to report that the book is now available for pre-order from Amazon.
Then the release dates are as follows:
UK – 9th October
Australia – 1st November
US – 27th January
To guarantee a copy from the first run pre-ordering is probably a good idea… And you can of course order from the UK site and have it shipped anywhere in the world on the 9th October.

SKY-SWING Balloon Pendulum Project (Adventure Planet Ep#1)

SKY-SWING Balloon Pendulum Project (Adventure Planet Ep#1)

Different!!! Check it out!

Thanks to my skydiving friend Gulliver Page I had the opportunity to be part of the film crew in this crazy concept ; ))

The Concept … to span 300ft of rope between two hot air balloons in the sky and perform a pendulum swing was hatched over coffee one morning after a balloon jump as we dreamed of the potentials …. over a year later after detailed planning and research amid setbacks for weather and schedule changes The Adventure Planet team have achieved their goal

“Balloon Pendulum Sky-Swing” was a success.

Thomas and Chris used their years of experience flying together to position the two balloons as one with extraordinary precision
With both balloons set in position and the rope spanned between them Gulliver was free to go and play on the big swing …. YEEEWWwwwwwwwwwww !!!!

Stand Up Paddle World Tour 2014

Stand Up Paddle World Tour 2014

Now it is all over again, the StandUp World Tout 2014 at the North Shore of Oahu/ Hawaii finished yesterday. On the last day it was very challanging for all riders but also for me to get some nice shots ; )), because it was very dark, misty and hazy. A nightmare for all photographers, but hey, still shot my 1200 + shots (crazy) on that day and spend hours on the computer to make them quite viewable ; ))

I hope you enjoy! Here a link to all the shots: –

– for the riders you will find Albums by Racing days
