NBC’s Today Show host Kerry Sanders hooked up with X Rated Kiteboarding and Slingshot team riders Neil Hutchinson, Hamish Macdonald, Pete Weisburg and Kiteboarder Magazine’s Editor Ryan Riccitelli to learn how to kiteboard this last Wednesday off the coast of Miami.

Image

NBC chartered a private boat and helicopter along with the usual network entourage of camera and sound crews giving kiteboarding the red carpet media attention it deserves.

Image

The turquoise blue water of Key Biscayne was the perfect backdrop for primetime America to catch a glimpse of Hamish MacDonald’s insane kite loops.

Image

Neil Hutchinson, strapped with a waterproof microphone, was interviewed by Kerry from a chase boat as he kiteboarded along the Miami skyline.

Image

Kerry conducted a one on one interview with Riccitelli about the history of the sport and safety precautions for beginners as Hamish, Neil and Pete demonstrated kiteboarding moves in the background.

The highlight of the day was Neil Hutchinson and Hamish Macdonald giving Kerry a kiteboarding lesson. To the amazement of everyone, Kerry caught on quick and within an hour was up and riding.

NBC will be featuring a three and a half minute segment in the upcoming weeks. Check out xratedkiteboarding.com for more information.
