good footage. this is from a Ben Wilson Accelerator camp. kind of inspiring for riding a longboard behind kite. I wonder how much of the time he was unhooked and if so how much being unhooked accounts for his success (I could not tell from the video).

Some these clips were from his first day on the long board. It was his first time riding unhooked and unstrapped as well......
By the end of the week he was unhooking on most waves.
Please note this guy was a strong longboard surfer but it really openned my mind to riding a longboard with a kite.
He now is focussing on the longboard and is ripping.
here is some othe footage of the other guys at that camp
