The KJ Experience Mauritius
Just came back from another really amazing trip to Mauritius, however this time it was not for a competition or photo shoot, but instead to run my KJ Experience kitesurf & yoga courses, helping other passionate kiters progress in their kiting, and experience the magic of Mauritius and its waters. Something thats much more rewarding than getting on a podium, winning a trophy, or getting that classic image in a magazine, is helping others to feel the stoke of the sea and kiting, and experience the inner calm of yoga. Seeing others progress, trying new manoeuvres, pushing their limits, sharing experiences, feelings, wipeouts, then being united and calmed at the end of the day with a stretching, therapeutic yoga session in a beautiful environment , is really rewarding. My KJ Experience courses seem to attract very special, interesting people, kiters from all over the world, who I feel very blessed to have met and shared time with. Each and every one brings their own unique energy, personality, riding style, aims, and humour, which creates an amazing atmosphere on and off the water!
Thanks to all of you special people who participated on the recent course in Mauritius, and to my amazing sponsors North Kiteboarding and ION who allow me to push my own limits in the sea, riding with the most revolutionary, incredible equipment! In my bag for this trip was a North 9 & 7m Dice, which is the most awesome, ultimate kite for waves and freestyle, and the Pro series 5'11 and Select 135cm Twin tip. I also had my favourite purple ION hot shorty, Nova harness, and of course a fine selection of ION bikinis and board shorts!
The only other thing that was needed was wind, waves and sunshine, which Mauritius and mother nature gave us plenty of :-)
The new Neo is out!!!
The brand new NEO is available! The newest kite in the range of six NKB kites is the Neo. A dedicated freestyle/wave kite with only 3 struts. Astonishing easy and predictable to fly, offering a drift ability which allows you really to surf waves, without getting dragged off the board or constantly steering your kite. But just watch the clip and convince yourself:
The Mauritius Episode
Right after the KSP Mauritius we took the chance to really enjoy Mauritius and managed to get some sick shots of barrels, huge walls and also massive wipeouts. Watch the best athletes in their game, Airton Cozzolino, Patri McLaughlin, Kirsty Jones and Ninja Bichler playing with the elements to the extreme. Additionally get a closer look on the beautiful island Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, probably one of the most versatile kite spots on this globe: flat water lagoons, wave entry spots and of course impressing One Eye. And all that within spitting distance!
Enjoy the ride with your host Tom Court and just so much, it´s worth watching it until the last second!

Tom Court hits Mauritius 2012
With the rain pouring down the windows at home in the UK, I decided to get off the couch, put down the PS3 controller and book a ticket out to Mauritius. Having seen so much from the KSP out there, I wanted to see what it was like for some all round Free Riding...
Wether its for flat water or waves, this spot is epic. On the Le Morne peninsula on the south west tip of the island. One Eye is the spot to ride! Check it out from another RipSlix production...
