I have often wondered about the tendency of kiters to bunch up like a load of cats in a basket. This was likely a race, so that is their execuse but what about the rest?

Hot off out of editing in Maui, some nice wave scenes.

From Cabrinha: "A project to show some of our best kept secrets, our local pool of testers, and the great Maui scenics on the way to the beach."

"Twig Baker known best for his monster wave endevors picked up some new Drifters while in Hawaii this winter and is taking a liking to the sport. Check out Twig's video and stay tuned for more from Twig's Travels."


Grant "Twig" Baker is no stranger to big waves, check this out from Chile, sans kite.

"Details are still a bit blurry, but according to eye-witness accounts, big-wave hellions Rusty Long and Grant “Twiggy” Baker have broken the 100-foot barrier, catching and surfing a sky-scraper-size wave off the coast of Chile’s Isla Alejandra Selkirk, several hundred miles off the coast of mainland Chile."

What do you do if the ocean is far away but you have a lake, a mud lake and wind?



"On the Snake River Plain in Idaho there exists a microculture of windsport enthusiasts. Mud Lake has a less than desirable shoreline. Windsurfers have been going to Mud Lake for over 20 years from all over SE Idaho and cut a path to the water. My friends and I from Jackson, Wyoming have begun to seek out the same wind for kitesurfing. Now we are becoming a part of the Mud Lake microculture. This is a short edit that trys to show our perspective on such a unique kitesurfing location.

I've shot the entire film on a Canon 60D and edited in Premiere Pro. As I move from single frame photography to film I'm finding lots of hurdles. Focus, camera settings, tripods, and editing are all relatively mind boggling. This is one of my first attemts and Hopefully they keep getting better. Thanks!"


It looks nippy but windy, not much obvious wind shadow either. Although could be east winds are kind of uneven from the diagram below. Ride on!
