well, i've seen my second tv commercial featuring a kiteboarder. the first was a pretty quick clip in a car commercial, but this last one showed a little more with a guy riding and then catching big air....it was for the u.s. air force.

anybody else seen any others? how about in other countries?

I saw a billboard in Japan featuring a kiteboarder advertising cigarettes in the summer of 2001.

In Australia, summer of 2000/2001 Coke had a television comercial that had alot of kiteboarding in it. A few jumps anyway - I think I remember a deadman and some sort of roll...

Here in mexico, there is a beer comercial running of the "Tecate" brand, probably known by any gringo who has gone down to party tijuana. It shows some guys kitesurfing in what is probably baja around las ventanas or los barriles, with some really hot girls on the beach. Shows a few jumps and just kind of like a "having fun with the guys" attitude while the girls talk, tan and look sexy on the beach. Once theyre done kitesurfing, they have a campfire on the beach with the girls and drink tecate beer, i think the guys in the commercial are gringos who were flown down from L.A. Actually, i think i recognized BOAZ form http://www.airgear.com as being in the commercial. Can anyone confirm this?
Cool commercial,
Andres

Not a TV ad, but a friend of mine kited in Ireland a couple months ago and reports that an ice cream company has put their logo on a bunch of kites and gives/loans their kites to any riders willing to advertise for them... sweet! I think I'll go tell Robby I'm happy to fly any of his kites which say 'Naish' on them for free...

Kiting in the US Airforce.... now there's a thought maybe it's a silent stelth tactical approach for when they invade and flatten Iraq.
