Kevin langeree. Should be able to find him work online if you have bandwidth. A lot of amazing work.

Okay, that makes a lot of sense! He is indeed one of the best in the world, having won innumerable competitions, most famously in kiterland, the King of the Air competition here last February. His previous KEVVLOG #34 shows just how crazy he can jump, filmed two weekends ago. My best jumps, being a mere mortal plus 62 years old, are around 10m, while he is pushing 30m. But he's also the nicest guy, willing to take time to talk. I've met him several times out here, and on Monday chatted with him on the beach a little around 6PM when all the pros came down for a jumping session at Bloubergstrand, where the KOTA will be held in the first two weeks of February. They put on quite a show in 35 knot winds. As usual he was on a 9m Naish Pivot (he rides for Naish), and I had just gotten blown off the water on my 7m Pivot!

Kevin does use a remarkably big kite for the conditions, but it is also technique, strength, and youth, plus of course, big balls. I literally could not hold down my 7m kite by 6PM on Monday, and he and most of the other hotshots were out on 9m kites. He flew a 10m kite when he won the KOTA last year with some huge jumps, but not just simple jumps, he put in spins and inversions while up there, amazing. Guys have died doing jumps like that, or trying to.

VIDEO REVIEW LEG 2: For each Boatfeed, we whittle the 200+ videos and 150 photos down to a few, and then do a final pass to get the 4 or 5 each that we highlight on the show.  Here's my first selection from Leg 2, with stars on the ones that I actually wanted to use.   Ended up using 5 of them.  Show was really solid and should premiere on Thursday night.

Googled, but can't find source. Yours? I'm obviously missing something.

Quick notes:

Sound is better. Musto pimping easy to take. Inmarsat. 90s per vid--challenge. Good! Mostly worked to keep the focus on the content. SHKS wipeout works as a warmup, TTOP hydration,  Squall section surprising--seemed more about the off watch scrambling, Dr Cloggs discussion fair enough, bit didactic but not insufferable considering the options possible. Drone wars, albatross chasing cool to anticipate. "We're fucked" (bit surprised. expected a comment about it being staged, since Pascal probably had better French ideas, but chose to ham it up for the English?). TTOP sending it good pick.Sander's pick of the tactical moment on VS11 excellent highlighting of the decisions. "Approachable" works.

Best part? No music in the vids :)  

Bottom line: Thanks for the picks and packaging. Worth the time to watch.
