AWSI Show 2023
« on: September 11, 2023, 10:25:42 AM »
The 2023 AWSI show just wrapped up, it was an awesome gathering and we enjoyed good wind conditions before and after the show.
We have lots of great footage and interviews to edit and post over the next couple of weeks, starting with this footage of Johnny Heineken ripping it up at the Hatchery:

This video has been passed around the chat a few times.

It looks sped up, he's so good. That crazy tack 360 in like a 6 foot circle is wild.

Haha, yes, Johnny's skills are amazing and it's not just his gear.

Here is another video of Kane De Wilde at the same spot, doing downwind foil runs, then walking or paddling back upwind (the current makes it easy).

he's so good. That crazy tack 360 in like a 6 foot circle is wild.

Wow.  That is a beautiful move.  It takes a second to realize that his riding is that inspiring without airtime. 

Also between he and Kane they may have the widest and narrowest stances :).

Great filming, Robert!

That ultra wide stance must be a leftover from his kite racing days, seems to work for him. I find my feet getting closer together every year though. Interesting that Kane's KT board looks to have a nearly identical bottom shape to the Omen flux he helped design ::)

The Omen boards are good. Very mini simmons esque.  I like them a lot.

And you can't beat that construction either. My Omen lives in a car exposed to heat and sun for months and won't take water.
