Hey, check this out:



14 years old Forest Bakker is training for PKRA tour in Tarifa Spain. Sponsored notably by FLEXIFOIL and KITADDICT-Ethical kitewear, he is going for a full PKRA tour in 2009 after receiving the Rookie of the Year award PKRA 2008.

After only 2 years of practice ... he ROCKS !!!!!

Hes 14 bro.. lighten up. You can't just instantly do KGB's and Slims with your kite on the fucking water. He'll learn to do things more and more powered. I wish I was that good at 14.

Kite dangling can help learn wake tricks that you can progress with kite lower and more style as you go. It is kind of proven in quite a few riders now that learn't wake tricks on a kite( that may not have had boat access or whatever) but later took it to the boat, cable or kite(low) now and rip....

you ride good
