Video - Tom Hebert of Airush Barefoot Kiteboarding

Check this video out. Barefoot kiteboarding and tandem riding! Board offs.

Tom reminds me that kiteboarding is meant to be fun. Check out the upsidedown tail drag!

That's some awesome stuff. Big air, board offs and lots of kick ass s#@t! A video that captures the true essence of kiteboarding that non-boarders can even appreciate. :thumb:

really nice clip - made me realise that i prefer to watch straightforward, long, high floaty airs and simple grabs - far better viewing than a big air jump with a really technical pass of some sort in the middle. Not knocking what the freestyle guys do and i appreciate the work they put in to do it. Just seems that less is more sometimes, particularly from the perspective of someone who can't do handle passes & all that monkey stuff.

really nice!!! the tail drag was awesome...about time we get some more style into freestyle.

The barefoot stuff in shallow waters looks ominous though...cool but ominous..

Tom is such a styley rider. He has a "Jesus Walk" version where he runs across the water for about 50m and then kite-loops up and out to put his board back on in mid-air. Very very cool; I don't know how much it scores in comps.
