It is quite something else to see it in person. Did he pull those one armed ones?

yeah i totally agree, shared a session in new cal and was super fun. No messing around when it comes to power hooked or unhooked, cranks the bar like a machine. One of few riders i ever saw with such good boosting style/power other than a few kiwis of course..! :-)

Funny - he was at my beach a few weeks ago and it was the same thing - it was like I was watching a totally different sport than the one I'm involved in, in a totally different wind. I was was on an 11 while he was on a 9 and he was throwing his tricks super high and floaty, doing multi spin handlepass tricks, levitating before touchdown, and then slashing a wave face as soon as he was back on the water.

Even aside from the fact he was doing super tech tricks with a lot of style, it was really impressive how he was just "on". It didn't look effortless, it looked like an aggressive and constant attack on the airspace and waves.

Smaller C kites can generate a lot of power if flown aggressively.
Some would argue that Kevin's style is not as technically difficult because he keeps his kite high. Still damn impressive though and there aren't many who throw their handle-passes so high off the water.
