2. Kite World Guide

The World Kitesurf Guide as a gift
This was probably one of the first purchases I made when becoming a kitesurfer 😉 Introducing almost 100 regions in nine continental chapters, it features over 1,250 of the world’s best spots. The world is a playground and this is the place where you can see all your bucket list destinations in a great overview and detail. You can either get the The World Kite and Windsurfing Guide or The Kite and Windsurfing Guide Europe.

3. Tricktionary – learn new jumps and tricks

A gift progressive kitesurfers will love - the tricktionary

If you’re looking for a gift for a kitesurfer that is progressing to his first jumps, this is the ultimate inspiration! The Tricktionary is kind of a kitesurfing manual, providing you with tons of inspiration on tricks in three categories: Superbasics for advanced kiteboarders of all levels and styles, Airstyle (old school, hooked in tricks) and Newschool (wake style, unhooked moves). Get the Tricktionary here

4. Vivida Poncho

The best gift for kitesurfers after their session – a Vivida PonchoEvery kitesurfer needs a poncho – there is no better feeling than cuddling into your fluffy poncho, especially if it’s such a beautifully designed one like the Vivida ones! Plus it’s way easier to change after your session – or to simply hang out a bit longer on the beach before changing. Free worldwide shipping.

But there is so much more behind the brand Vivida – which is why I love it so much: “For the adventurers the dreamers the thinkers and the doers. Vivida is a community. A philosophy. A Lifestyle. Making the most of our precious lives.

Make sure to check out their apparel, yoga wear (the comfiest material ever!) and their kitesurf bikinis – you can find the full catalogue here.

5. Capture the magic of your sessions

Super smooth videos with the new stabilization – finally!

I was always a big fan of using the GoPro to take pictures – however the result of the videos was always disappointing since it was super shaky when kiting. Finally with the GoPro Hero 7 black there is a very smooth video stabilization in the camera – which makes the big difference (see a comparison video here)!

The footage is so much better and even though I had a pretty new GoPro 5 I had to sell it and get the GoPro 7, the difference is really striking, especially if you use it while kitesurfing! Get the GoPro Hero 7 black here

The best ways/angles to film your kite session with GoPro Mounts

I’ve tried a lot of GoPro Mounts (bought a lot of them and then realized after the first time filming they just didn’t work with kitesurfing or the angle was weird or just didn’t look good) and my personal favorites are:– Kite Line Mount for this kind of perspective, e.g. the U.Go Line Mount
Mouth mount my latest addition to the mounts and I love it 😉  Get the GoPro Mouth Mount here
3-way-Grip Selfie Stick (as a camera grip or foldable extension arm) and Tripod in one – the allrounder. Get the 3-way-grip here

6. Fly high and measure your jumps

There are 2 devices on the kite market that measure the height of your jumps among other features – PIQ and WOO. I’ve tried them both and honestly can’t really give a recommendation which one to choose because they’re both pretty good with tiny differences  – the main advantage of WOO is that it has a bigger community, more game factor and is a bit cheaper while PIQ has the nicer interface and is a bit easier to use 😉

The PIQ has a much nicer App Design and Interface, it is in my opinion easier to use (the first installment and uploads) and next to all the features the WOO has it can measure also your rotations (how many times you rotated during the jump) and has a real time display that shows the height of jumps as they’re happening. Get the PIQ here

 

The Woo App Design is not as appealing as PIQ (haha don’t judge me guys, after all I’m a designer and I care about those things 😉 ) and using it has been a bit more complicated in my eyes (or maybe it was because I inherited the old WOO of my boyfriend but updates didn’t work, I need to login to the App every time etc) but what I like more about the Woo is the bigger community and the “game factor” (e.g. it shows you that when you jump over 8 Meter a badge that you could have just jumped the great wall of china). You can also earn badges (e.g. 7 jumps in one sessions over 7 meters). Get the WOO here
