PEAK - single skin depower concept

Hello everybody,

Can you feel the cold wind of winter... ? That means the snowkite season is coming very soon ;-)

If you like freeriding in the mountains, with a light kite and a small packaging, the PEAK is for you!

First single skin depower concept, Flysurfer created this awesome free-riding kite for snowkiting, landkiting and kite skating.

This kite is super cool, super easy to ride, and take a very small place.
Also, you can use the "Touring Bag" as a harness, you don't need anymore to take your heavy harness, leave it at home and just put your PEAK in your touring bag, and let's go kiting ;-)

Here are 2 videos of the PEAK (action and features), hope you will enjoy it as i really enjoy this cool toy ;-)

France freestyle KiteLandBoarding Champion 2013

Hello everybody,

last week-end took place the 2013 France KLB Championship in "Leucate" on the awesome spot of "La Franqui".

This event was organised by the local kite club "KSL" KiteSurf Leucate, and it was a big success with lot of sun, smiles, and wind!

It was really cool to see all the french KiteLandBoarders on the same spots, it was the opportunity to see again some good friends and also to meet some new cool peoples ;)

Down : me and my Flysurfer team mate "Benoit Miquel"

Freestyle meeting

My good friends "Mehdi" and "Jéjé" :-)

We ran 4 Races, about 4 km each, i was riding my Flysurfer Speed3 15m CE and my Hardcore X-shape MTB. I managed to take the 2nd place at the overall classement at race part.

After the races, the Freestyle part took place, with nice and clean wind conditions about 13 knots.
I ran the Freestyle with my Speed3 15m CE, great for hooked and unhooked :)

I managed to get qualified to the Final, we were 3 riders at the Final Heat, my FS team mate "Benoit Miquel", "Romain Féaux" (PeterLynn rider) and me.

Down : Benoit executing a nice 720 backroll one hand unhooked from the kiker!

We all did good riding, on the kiker and on the flat area. Some nice trix landed by all of us, it was a great feeling to run this Final Heat with my good friends "Romoutz" and "Benoit" AKA "La Mouette"!

Summer 2013 - Feed Back

Hi guys,

this summer was as usual very cool, i spent my time kiteboarding on water and land with my friends all over France, from the north to the south.

The west coast kitesurfing sessions was pretty good, riding the Ocean with my Flysurfer Speed3 15m CE most of the time, i love to ride the nice blue waves of the France west coast.
I was with the France Flysurfer distributor and my Flysurfer team mate "N2G" (kite buggying freestyler), we spent or time taking the sun, drink some nice beers, chilling and of course kitesurfing, we were next to "Biscarosse".

Here is a lil' video of my trip in this nice area :

After this i went to the north of France to compet at the "Triple King Contest", it was a sick event, i met some very cool dudes there and all of them are good friends now, like my Flysurfer and Flyboard team mates Tim Gilles from Netherland and Toby Brauer the King of the Airstyle!

When i was there i took a day off to ride one of the best kitesurfing wave spot in the North of France called "Wissant", not so far away from the event spot, where i had some good fun! This is a video that i've done at the begining of summer on this nice spot of "Wissant" ;)

And to finish well the august month i decided to go have some fun with my kite mates from "Leucate", the wind forecast was very good with strong winds, and i just received my brand new and first Tube kite from my brand "Flysurfer kiteboarding", it was time for me to ride those kite in strong wind to do some big loops with the 8m and 10m Cronix! Very good times there, partying, chilling and riding hard!
Check those videos of my kite trip there ;)

Now i'm just preparing for the France KiteLandBoarding Championship 2013, which will take place at "Leucate" from 14th to 15th September, so i'll go back there and try to get the main title of France KLB champion! After my UK 2012 KiteLandBoarding Champion Title, it would be great to have the France Title on 2013... ;)

So see you soon, stay cool and fly high ;)

Cronix : my feeling, my feed back.

Hi everybody,

as you know Flysurfer Kiteboarding is now on the LEI Tube Kite market with the brand new and first one Tube Kite in the brand : The Cronix.

Few weeks ago we were in Fuerte Ventura (Canary Island) to shoot the promotional video and photos of this new kite, and by the way it was a great opportunity to test all the size (6-8-10-12) in different kind of conditions from 15 knots to 35 knots. (Pix under : me - one foot)

As always the FS quality is here.
The first time i ride the Cronix was the 12m in approximatly 12-15 knots, and i directly knew that this kite is awesome!
Even it was a light wind for a first try i managed to do some cool hooked spins and some nice unhooked tricks, the kite was turning fast and the pop of the kite was very good for a 12-15 knots session! (Pix under : Bram Bast - Low Mobe)

I couldn't wait for more wind to test this kite in other sizes, and my wishes were realised because we had good wind all days after :-)

We did a sick strong wind session in "Sota Vento" on a big blue lagoon, it was a great opportunity to test the 6m and 8m Cronix for big Kite Loops, and the only thing i can say is that I LOVE this kite for big mega loops!! (Pix under : Dylan - Mega Loop)

The Cronix loops fast & furious and go directly over your head to power up, you can easely do 2 or 3 loops in the air with the 6m or 8m in 30 knots or more!

We had some very nice session also on the North-East coast of the island, next to "Cotillo" and "Lajares", we found some EPIC savage blue lagoons there with clear flat area to do some unhooked and big hangtime. (Pix under : me - front roll tail grab)

I used to ride the Cronix 10m from 20 to 25 knots on those spots, if you Like hangtime you will Love the 10m in 20-25 knots, you will fly and loop the kite sooo easely, it was so much fun to do some big Front rolls with a huge downloop!!

The 12m Cronix is very good from 15 knots to 25 knots, you go high and you can still loop the kite and power up before landing, great kite for freeriding and freestyling! (Pix under : Dylan - Railey)

You can settle (adjust) the bar pressure as you want, from the back lines bridles of the kite you can choose to put your bar pressure Light (for unhooked), Middle (unhooked and hooked) or Strong for those who like to feel the kite at his maximum!

The spy is very strong, i crashed many times the kite, on water, sand and Rocks, and the LEI tubes never brokes and the spy was still intact! The quality is here for sure!

For my point of view, the Cronix is a super good Tube kite from beginers to advanced kiters!
It's a very good kite to go BIG on "Hooked mode" and an awesome kite to do some new-school unhooked riding!

Stop speaking and just watch this EPIC promotion video of the Cronix, "A new era begins"!

BKSA 2013 Round1 Essex

Just come back from the 1st Round of the 2013 UK KiteLandBoarding Freestyle Championship in Essex.

We had super strong wind all days, about 20 to 30 knots, good opportunity to ride hard my Speed4 10m!
We did training and free session on Friday 10 May, ripping it on the Kickers and sliders, feel so good to get back on those very nice Ramps...

The night before the comp we did a super cool night session on the Kicker with a lil' spot light which was cool to see the ramp just before going on it, but the landing was scary because we couldn't see very well the ground...

We had a storm wind during the comp, 30 knots, i lost my first heat against the local rider and Ozone team rider "Ash Garwood", after that i won against the UK flysurfer team riders "Greg Chilton" and "Abe Alzouman", then i managed to go to the final against my Flysurfer team mate "Emmanuel Norman" and "Ash Garwood".

The final heat was a warrior heat, we did crazy hangtime and big airs, i only did hooked trix on this one, and Emmanuel landed some very nice mobes (pictures just under)!

I took the 3rd place at this 1st Round, now it's time to concentrate for the next Rounds to try to keep my 2012 UK Champion's title!

Next Round will take place from 8 to 9 June in Suffolk.

Here is a lil' video of me Lewis riding the Essex Kite Park's Kickers on Sunday 12th May during a free-session ;-)

Kitesurfing on The Island

I just come back from a Super Mega EPIC kitesurfing trip in Corsiac Island!

We stayed there during 14 days and we had 10 days kiting in the blue lagoons, so stocked!

It was a very good opportunity to promote the brand new kite from my sponsor Flysurfer Kiteboarding, the Speed4 10m deluxe and the Speed3 CE, and also the Flyboards Flyradical and the Hybride surf Flywave!

I saved the life of 2 of those really cute tortules, they were on the middle of the road...i took them and put them in the forest, good times, now they are living there life peacefully :-)

Now it's time for you to relax and enjoy the movie! Wish you a super cool 2013 kitesurfing season, and don't forget to enjoy your life 100% ;-)

MTB contest 2013

The 4th MTB contest edition was Epic!

Like last year we had a very good wind about 15 to 20 knots, and a big sunshine!

Many riders came from Germany, Netherland and UK.
It was super cool to chill and ride with all those guys, we don't have lot of opportunities to ride together so when we can ride together it's always a big pleasure!

We begin the event with a huge race, a massive up-wind and a fast and furious down-wind, we were approximatly 15-20 riders to compet on the race, i managed to arrive at the 2nd place with my Speed315 CE.

In the afternoon took place the Freestyle comp, Dutch KiteLandBoarder "Haye de Vries" did some pretty nice old-school riding stuff with big spins and boards-off, and Push Kiting rider AJ from UK landed some sick Handle Pass.

Haye de Vries


All the other riders did nice riding also, it was cool to see that the level is going up every year!

I used my Speed4 10m, i did 80% unhooked trix, landed some cool "F16", Front to wrapped and other blinds... i arrived at the 2nd place just behind AJ who tooked the 1st place, well done mate!

I arrived 1st at the overall classement, i'm pretty stocked about it :-)
I won this nice Gold Cup with 1L beer inside ahaha i drunk all of it of course!

Here is a short video of the event that i have edited, Featuring Kris Beech - Abe Alzouman - Passi Schmidt - and me, cheers!
