Noè Font - Africa Mixtapes.
"Africa Mixtapes" is a compilation of my two trips to Africa at the beginning of 2020. The first expedition to Kenya was a great time, and although the wind never exceeded 12 knots, the thrill of visiting a new country made up for it. The landscapes we found ourselves in, and the wildlife that occupied this region was all straight out of "Nat Geo." After Kenya, the plan was to head down to Cape Town. The season was coming to an end there, and with KOTA already completed, the crowds were gone, so I figured it would be quiet, providing lighter winds, more practical for filming in the waves. It turns out the season was over before I expected, so I left South Africa with only a couple of sessions seared onto my hard drive. As the bout of 2020 careened forward, we got skunked with wind during the second trip to this expansive country; on par with the momentum 2020 has supplied the universe thus far. Instead of attempting to illustrate the impractical, I decided to shift the focus of the video towards the experience rather than the riding itself. Filming is never easy, and sometimes you have to settle with what you have. At the same time, I've been collecting footage for over a year now. I present "Africa Mixtapes," serving as a preview for the framework that's being rehearsed behind the curtain. Stay tuned. Africa Mixtapes is a KF original by Noe Font presented by Duotone Kiteboarding and ION. Filmed by Manel Arpa, Tom Court, Jop Heemskerk, Ewan Jaspan and Noe Font.

KNOT FUTURE: Death of Park
Filmed across the 2019 Kite Park League season, Death of Park takes you from smooth Hatteras winds in the Real Kiteboarding slider park all the way across the country and into the icy waters of the Hood River Slider Project. "I wanted to make this film to show people where Kiteboarding and Park riding is at in 2019. I wanted to document the things that so often people don't get to see. I did my best to show what happened, but there were still many tricks and many riders that went un-documented. Films like this are crucial for progression and understanding, especially now with so much kite media focused on circus tricks and viral clips... someone has to do something proper" - [Alexander Lewis-Hughes].

BEHOLD & SEA - Ewan Jaspan Full Length
Throughout 2018 I decided to focus on making a full length video part. Together with Alexander Lewis-Hughes from Knot Future we managed to film in Perth, Melbourne, Cape Hatteras, Squamish, Hood River and Icapui in Brazil and pull it all into one piece. It was a different year holding back all the footage we gathered while watching everyone release short videos throughout the season, but I think in the end it was definitely worth it and we hope this inspires more people to focus on quality content that lasts in the age of social media. Make sure to share this video to help support these kind of videos in the kiteboarding industry.

Wakestyle now, is a term thrown around pretty loosely these days in kiteboarding, which is unusual because as recently as two years ago, it was a term that essentially only referred to about %1 of the kiteboarding population. However with the recent emergence of bindings on the world tour, you see more and more people throwing that word around. It seems now as if almost all the top pros fall into the same category, what follows can be considered the distinction… In Patrick Wieland's new short film “Distinction” produced by Mauicio Abreu, riders Alex Fox and Sam Light establish the standard and return the word “wakestyle” to its original roots.
