A Summer in Cape Town with Tom Court

Hailing from the Isle of Wight, UK, Tom Court is one determined kiteboarder. He discovered the sport nearly 10 years ago and felt in love with it. The British kiteboarder is one tough rider and spends a lot of his time traveling around the world to the PKRA world kitesurfing tour stops, competing with the world’s best athletes for a world ranking. He competes in both freestyle and racing disciplines.

Tom is also a talented filmmaker and he knows how to capture the essence of kitesurfing on the camera. You must be familiar with the ‘FreeRide Project’ Movie that he produced at the end of 2011. Well, don’t worry, there’s more kiteboarding action coming, as Tom decided to start work on the FreeRide Project 2.

One of the spots showcased in the new movie is Cape Town, a paradise for kiteboarders. After filming a section of the Freeride Project 2 here last year, Tom could not resist to hit the Cape Town kite scene again. After all, it is one of his favorite kiteboarding spots too. Tom took the time to enjoy some cool kitesurfing sessions and to Aaron Hadlow, The North team, Craig Cunningham and other friends.

And it was all caught on tape. We will soon see Tom and friends shredding Cape Town in ‘A Summer in Cape Town’ clip soon. Until it is released, you can take a look at the trailer in the related videos section below.
