pro kite land boarder in ArubaHi I'm Dave from PUSH Kiting, One cold wet miserable thursday night at about 8pm I got a call, asking if I wanted to star in a new kite boarding movie shot by the amazing Devin Super Tramp team, I'd been contacted as I'm a professional kiteboarder/kite land boarder. Due to the circumstances I was asked If I could leave for the Caribbean the very next morning, Ofcourse I said Yes! being a once in a life time opotunity there was no way I could turn it down. So the next morning I was driving to the airport with fellow kitesurfing instructor Paul Hepworth who also runs kitesurfing, kite land boarding and kite buggy lessons in our school. On route to london to make the flight time we were still trying to find out which airport to head to as the flights had been booked but the only information we had was departure time and it was a london airport, luckily as we made neared the M25 we got confirmation that it was Gatwick Airport and about 30 minutes from Gatwick we found out we were to be flying with friends of PUSH Kiting, Virgin atlantic airlines, although we didnt get a free upgrade to first class they did get me a great extended comfort isle all to myself :)

On arrival to the airport with 30 minutes left to go before check in closed I was asked for my permit/temporary visa to enter the US for more than 8 hours, to which I remarked I didnt think I needed one as I should be going to the caribbean, I was dressed and has bought uk kite land boarders
with me pretty much a wardrobe of shorts and t shirts. After a mad panic and a very understanding wife completing the VISA online for me as internet cafes in london gatwick SUCK! I was able to get on the plane which took me straight to the icey cold freak weather system that was covering new york, before I had to make two more flights via Atlanta to eventually end up in Aruba. So I spent 8 hours huddled with all my luggage in newark airport hoping that no one was going to mug me, kill me or even steal all my kit, Of which I had far too many (total bagage included 5LEI's, 2 bars, 2 land board, 1 surf board, 2 harnesses, 2 pumps, repair kits, clothing for the week, slr camera and lenses, go pro camera and accessories just to mention the basics).

I arrived in Aruba to increbily hot winds blasting me in the face and the smile of a local called Apachi, and this is when my kiting adventure began, Check out the video now, share the love and spread the word, If you want to try kite land boarding then please come and visit us, you can request lessons specifically with myself or my other instructors.
