One of our local riders Eduardo jumped on the Cabrinha Apollo for a spin.
I got a chance to demo the 2017 Airush Lithium 12m for about 10 mins before the winds dropped off. I didn't see much in the turning power of the kite unfortunately when the lulls hit, but it seems like a fun kite. The bar pressure was pretty light.
I had the chance to demo the 2017 Naish Pivot 12m with the Torque ATB setup. Very cool kite that truly turns on a pivot. Very light bar pressure.
I managed to get in some kiteboarding during the last couple days of my birthday here in south Texas. Good winds and good times had.
Here's a few pics from above during the bay crossing from Wildcat Park, Portland Texas to Fajitaville in North Beach Corpus Christi, Tx. A straight shot from point to point is about 5.5 miles one way.

Getting some time on the water is always easy using the 18m Switch Helium. Winds were 10-15 for a couple hours.
When the bays flood higher than normal, the kiters get to session in areas they normally don't have access to. Did we mention jumping off a bridge?
A much needed vacation had us traveling to Palawan and Boracay Philippines. The winds were light to none most of the trip, so we made the best of it. Met some cool people along the way.
I took a trip down to South Padre over the weekend for a couple days of super gusty winds.
It's been about 6 months since I was on the water. Stoked to get a couple jumps in between storms hitting the area.
Demo day hosted by Prokite kiteboarding.com in Corpus Christi, Tx. Damien Leroy & James McGrath showed up from Cabrinha.
The Philippines and Filipinos are a friendly lot. Their numerous beaches have always been a popular destination with surfers.
It's pretty cool to live in south Texas (Corpus Christi) and get in some kiteboarding in during the holidays.
