San Francisco Kite Surfing and Kiteboarding Company, Kite the Bay, Applies a New Approach in its Kiteboarding Program

Treasure Island, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2012

San Francisco kite surfing company, Kite The Bay, offering kite surfing lessons throughout the San Francisco area, is currently employing a new approach to teach students how to kiteboard expertly. Kite the Bay now uses a support boat and a KitePole to enable students to concentrate on achieving the proper body and board balance on the waters surface.

The use of the boat and the Kite Pole gives students a head start on the learning curve, said Capt. John von Tesmar, watersport enthusiast and head instructor at Kite the Bay. Kiteboarding is a sport that combines two activities, where one action will have an effect on something else. Awareness is key. Then its about building your skills and knowing how to link the kite-flying and the board-riding skills together.

During kiteboarding, also called kite surfing, the kite provides the pull and lift needed for the surfer to move, while the board provides the platform on which the surfer stands on. Enhancing board skills early on guarantees a faster learning progression.

The support boat, christened Windseeker, is a 21-foot Yamaha jet boat equipped with a KitePole that helps students to develop proper board stance. Being hooked to the KitePole creates lift for the student while not needing to worry about steering the kite. This ensures students focus on mastering the right body and board posture, after which, they learn proper kite steering.

Kite the Bay has offered the most exciting and efficient kite surfing lessons and scenic tours on the San Francisco Bay for years.

San Franciscos Kite Surfing Company, KGB Kiteboarding Announces Free Demonstration

Emeryville, CA (PRWEB) June 06, 2012

The summer offers a challenging experience for those interested in kiteboarding lessons and kitesurfing, as KGB Kiteboarding in San Francisco is announcing a free demonstration. Set to take place from June 15 to June 17 in Emeryville, this three-day demo is open to all levels, from beginner to advanced.

We will have a top pro in kiteboarding on-hand to demonstrate progression, tricks, big air, wakestyle, slider technique and more, Royce Vaughn of KGB Kiteboarding said.

The demonstration will be handled by pro-rider Jake Buzianis.

In addition, KGB Kiteboarding welcomes the Best RV, which will be on-hand with the latest 2012 Best kiteboarding gear for attendees to demo.

Kiteboarding is a wind-generated boardsport that will have the kiteboarder gliding over the water and soaring to new heights. It is similar to wakeboarding, but instead of the boat pulling the kiteboarder, the power is in the kiteboarders very own hands in the form of a wind-powered, large kite.

The beauty of this sport is that once you buy your kiteboarding gear, the wind and water are free! Vaughn said.

KGB Kiteboarding offers a variety of courses on how to kiteboard or kitesurf, such as group trainer kiteboarding lessons (beginner) to advanced private instruction, all of which are certified by the International Kiteboarding Organization. In addition, KGB Kiteboarding features kiteboarding gear like kiteboards and kiteboarding kites.

Breakout Actress and Professional Kiteboarder Maika Monroe Teams Up with SOLOSHOT to Support Kiteboarding 4 Kids Charity

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2012

Santa Barbara native Maika Monroe is a rising Hollywood star. She just finished shooting the new Jason Reitman film Labor Day opposite Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin. Next month her first feature film, Rahmin Bahranis highly anticipated At Any Price, where she stars opposite Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid as Efrons love interest, will premiere at the Venice Film Festival. However, what people may not know is that this young Hollywood beauty is also a rising star in the extreme sport of kiteboarding. As a professional kiteboarder, Monroe has traveled the world training and competing. But her favorite spot remains Cabarete - an eccentric little kite and surf town on the north coast of the Dominican Republic. In 2010, at the age of 17, Maika decided to forgo her senior year of High School in favor of online studies so she could move to Cabarete and train full-time and take her kiteboarding to the next level. When not on the water, Monroes favorite activity is spending time with Cabaretes children. As a result, Maika became passionately involved with a local charitable organization - Kiteboarding 4 Kids (KB4K.org). KB4K holds an annual fundraising event and kiteboarding competition where proceeds go to local charities benefiting disadvantaged children.

"When I was living in the Dominican Republic the local kids became a part of my family, said Maika Monroe. They were always there on the beach to help me when I was training. Each time I returned from the U.S., I would bring them board shorts, baseball mitts and used kite gear that my family and I collected in Santa Barbara. Once I learned about KB4K, I knew I had found the perfect organization to combine my passions for kiteboarding and children - and to make a difference on a whole new level," concluded Monroe.

Monroe has teamed up with the 2012 title sponsor - SOLOSHOT - for this years competition happening August 17-19 in front of the Millennium Beach Resort. SOLOSHOT is the first and only automatic cameraman that allows professional and amateur athletes to get video of their sessions at distances up to 2000 ft away, with no camera operator, by automatically keeping a tripod mounted camera pointed towards the athlete. Monroe credits SOLOSHOT, whose co-founder Chris Boyle is Monroes kiteboarding coach and a Cabarete resident, with helping her perfect her kiteboarding skills.

SOLOSHOT is such a brilliant idea and an athletes dream, said Maika Monroe. It has given me the ability to film myself training without anyones help its perfect because I can go to the beach, set up my SOLOSHOT, and not have to rely on anyone to stand there and film me from the beach for hours. My mom or a friend can just relax while SOLOSHOT does all the work. When I can finally spend some time away from Hollywood and concentrate on training, I know SOLOSHOT will be a big part of helping me get to the elite competition level. It is also cool that Chris and my friends at SOLOSHOT are sponsoring KB4K this year, as we all try to give a little something back to such a beautiful place that has given so much to us, concluded Monroe.


Soloshot Inc. designs and manufactures SOLOSHOT in the USA. SOLOSHOT is a tripod base that communicates with a small waterproof transponder worn by the subject to automatically keep a camera pointed in their direction. SOLOSHOTs are currently handmade at the Soloshot, Inc. facilities located in San Antonio, Texas and available for immediate sale through the companys website http://www.soloshot.com. Discounted SOLOSHOTs are also available through August 30, 2012 on Kickstarter as Soloshot, Inc crowd funds their new high volume, automated production line - also located in San Antonio, Texas.
