Learn to Landboard with Alex Brown and extend your kiteboarding season!
Posted Wednesday 28th November
Have you ever thought about getting into kiting? Or maybe you already water or snow kite and want to try it out on the land. Drill 1 is an instructional land DVD, for any novice to intermediate kiter who wants to start kiting on the land. Kiting on the land can be a great way of training when the wind is too light for the water, or when the snow hasn't fallen yet. Land kiting isn't expensive either, so pick up a copy of Drill 1 today so you can be riding in every season next year.
Your progression on the land might lead you to learning new tricks or techniques which can be easily transfered back onto the water or land. Riding on the land doesn't require a wetsuit or expensive snow gear, and you don't have to worry about sharks! It's really easy to step up your skills on the land after you click with the basic skill of starting, moving and stopping on your mountain board. You can land kite in hard sand, fields with short grass, desert lake beds, salt flats, etc. ... anywhere there's wide open land, clear of powerlines and trees.
Drill1 is the first full-length landboarding instructional DVD which is great for beginners and intermediates alike, which aids the progression of flying and boarding. Starting from looking at the wind and conditions, the 45 minute movie talks through 6 chapters instructing you to safely learn how to kite landboard!
