Wave Riding at Its Best – This Is Kitesurfing

Wave riding is perhaps one of the most challenging, yet rewarding kiteboarding discipline, as it puts the riders’ surfing and kiting skills to the test. Kitesurfing is not a replacement for surfing, simply an extension of it; the conditions for one are only ideal when they are not for the other. By using the kite as a means to harness one of surfing's imperfections, surfers can increase their water time and maximize their wave count.

And waveriding master and Patagonia ambassador Reo Stevens gives us an in depth look into making the most out of marginal conditions in the clip below. The video also features other talented wave riders like Keahi De Aboitiz, Ian Alldredge and Patrick Rebstock.
