History of Kitesurfing - UPWIND - Start of a Sport -




The History of Kiteboarding & Launch of a New Sport


I’m sure we can all agree that kiteboarding has to be one of the most dynamic and exhilarating sports on the planet. In fact, even people who have never had the pleasure of kiteboarding themselves, are drawn to the sport and fascinated by the speed, insanely high jumps, dizzying combinations of tricks, or the purity of riding the waves like surfers. But have you ever wondered where kiteboarding came from, who invented the inflatable kite, or how we got to where we are today as kiteboarders?  
Kiteboarding by Neil Egerton Photography
There are of course a number of great resources documenting the history of kiteboarding or kitesurfing, but we thought we’d summarise the highlights for you, so you can get back to doing what you live for… kiteboarding. And if you’d rather get body slammed into a mine field of sea urchins on an exposed reef than read an article on the history of kiteboarding, then feel free to skip straight to the video below, which is a humorous and very entertaining look at how it all started.
Seriously though, we can’t thank the producers, Josh Kendrick and Dan Connely enough for this brilliant tribute to kiteboarding, which comes packed with interviews with all the great pioneers of kitesurfing, and is what inspired us to write this article in the first place. It’s 55min long, so if you don’t have time for that, we’ve also included a 6 min video, Short Kiteboarding History by Susi Maiand Robby Naish.

Who Invented Kiteboarding

The story of kiteboarding will vary slightly depending on who you speak to. The Chinese for example are credited with using kites as a means of propulsion as far back as the 13th century. In the 1800’s George Pocock used kites to propel carts on land and ships on the water, making use of a 4-line control system similar to what we use today. And in 1903, aviation pioneer Samuel Cody developed “man-lifting kites” and succeeded in crossing the English Channel in a small collapsible canvas boat powered by a kite. You can read more about the early history of kites here.

But the pioneers of kiteboarding as we know it today are the Legaignoux brothers, Dominique and Bruno Legaignoux from Breton, France, who are credited with inventing the first inflatable kite. They first started experimenting with kites in 1984, and in 1985 demonstrated a prototype at the Brest International Speed Week and filed their first patent.
However, they weren’t alone… parallel to this, and all the way across the ocean in Oregon, USA, Cory Roeseler was developing his Kiteski together with his dad, Bill Roeseler, a Boeing aerodynamicist. Cory’s KiteSki became commercially available in 1994, could go upwind and had a rudimentary water re-launch system. In the late 1990s, the Kiteski evolved into a single board similar to a surfboard. The video (around minute 6:40) shows just how instrumental Cory was in the development of kiteboarding.

Development of Kiteboarding as a Sport

In 1997 the Legaignoux brothers partnered with Neil Pryde to produce small numbers of kites, which they then sold under the brand name Wipika. These kites had preformed inflatable tubes and a simple bridle system, both of which greatly assisted their water re-launch ability. Bruno Legaignoux has continued to improve his kite designs, and went on to invent the bow kite design a few years ago which has been licensed to many kite manufacturers, and has become quite popular in modern day kitesurfing. Learn more about the various kite designs here.

In 1998 Don Montague and Robby Naish requested a licence from Bruno, and as part of their agreement, Don Montague developed software which enabled them to design great kites in a fraction of the time. This was one of the defining moments of the sport.
The birth of kiteboarding as a mainstream sport really began in 1998 when Joe Keuhl organised the first kiteboarding event, which took place on Maui in Hawaii. The competition was jokingly dubbed the kitesurfing world championships and all the big names in kiteboarding were there (25 of them). Flash Austin won the competition.
Of course, learning to kitesurf in those days was treacherous. There were no instructors to learn from, no trainer kites, and nobody had figured out that they should launch the kite at the edge of the window yet. It really was the wild, Wild West back then…
One of the unique aspects of kiteboarding is that it developed in a number of different directions all roughly around the same time… on the one hand you had the likes of Robby Naish and Flash Austin boosting massive jumps, while guys like Lou Wainman and Elliot Leboe were pioneering the wakestyle side of kiteboarding. And now, largely thanks to the KSP World Pro Kite Tour, we’re getting back to our surfing roots with strapless wave kitesurfing.
Kitesurfing in Tarifa by Neil Egerton Photography
Originally the terms kiteboarding and kitesurfing really meant the same thing, however, in recent years there’s been a push to distinguish the two as different disciplines. Kiteboarding refers to anything that isn’t wave riding, so this would include freestyle, wakestyle, speed and racing, while riding waves with a kite would be kitesurfing. This trend really gained momentum when the KSP tour launched in 2011 with the One Eye Pro in Mauritius.

The Future of Kiteboarding

The future is definitely looking bright for kiteboarding and kitesurfing. We’ve got two pro tours, with the PKRA covering freestyle and the KSP geared purely towards wave riding. We’ve got speed and course racing world championships. Kite gear is evolving at an incredible pace, with kites and bar systems becoming safer and more efficient. Kite schools with qualified instructors can be found all around the world, and more youngsters and girls are getting into kiteboarding, which is great for any new sport. On top of that, kiteboarding almost became an Olympic sport last year, and while we didn’t make it for the 2016 Games in the end, we’re confident that kiteboarding in the Olympics is in the not too distant future.

#Q BOMBSHELLS HITTING TARGETS -- LIZ CROKIN





You won't believe how many incredible things are happening right NOW. And a whole bunch of it is quantifiable. If your name it "Hillary Clinton" or "John Podesta" or "Tony Podesta", you should be sh#tting your pants right now. Because according to #Qanon we are seeing the Trump Patriot deep state counter coup against the Satanic elite. Investigative journalist Liz Crokin joins me to discuss. LUKE 8:17 For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open.

UPDATE 12-30-17




The #QAnon Phenomenon Confirms #TheStormHasArrived

The #QAnon Phenomenon Confirms #TheStormHasArrived
Remember when President Trump said that this is The Calm Before The Storm? #CBTS
Here is an excerpt from The FAQ of Q
What’s going on here?
Someone very very close to President Trump has been dropping crumbs about global events from behind the scenes. He calls himself Q. He started at the end of October on 4chan and has continued since then, moving to this board when 4chan became compromised. What he’s claimed is going on is absolutely staggering.
How do you know he’s real?
He has posted irrefutable evidence that he is who he says he is.
- he predicted President Trump’s Twitter being shutdown
- he predicted the upheaval in Saudi Arabia
- he predicted an incident with a helicopter at a Rothschild estate in the UK two days before it happened
- he has posted original photographs taken from Air Force One. The timestamps and flight paths match the President’s recent trip to Asia. One was actually taken while flying over North Korea.
- He has posted key phrases that the President has used later on Twitter.
- some of his phrases and terminology have been independently confirmed as belonging to military intelligence.
He really is an insider with extraordinarily high security clearance. One might even say … Q Clearance.
How do you know it’s the same guy across posts?
He has a (reasonably) secure identifying code next to his name called a ‘tripcode.’ This code is the same on both 4chan and 8chan. His style and use of English has been consistent across all his posts.
But his tripcode here has a space in it and 4chan’s didn’t!
Try making a tripcode yourself. Instructions are here: https://8ch.net/faq.html#what-is-a-tripcode
Now put a space after your name. See? It’s the same tripcode. No need to worry.
Why is he leaking by posting on the chans?
Because they’re the last bastions of free speech. Mainstream media is hopelessly compromised and, as we’ll see further down, a major part of the problem. Social media is controlled and actively censored. The chans are where it’s at: pure uncensored raw discussion, analysis and detective work. Just ask Shia LeBeouf what they can achieve. This board’s job is to analyse Q’s material, find the truth and distill it down into a form that is palatable for normal people: memes, infographics and other red pills.
Use this link to read a .PDF of all of QAnon’s Bread Drops thru December 7th 2017
 https://anonfile.com/J9U6jedbb0/Q_Map_12_07_2017_v3.pdf
You need this information to be aware of the very real phenomenon that is taking place that was started by this QAnon person. The #QAnon hashtag on Twitter is constantly updating with information all day and night. I wanted my readers to be informed of this truth movement and to know that the Storm Has Arrived.
