Fat Sand Productions fifth instructional DVD in the Progression series of instructional videos is Progression Kite Landboarding Beginner and is primarily aimed at people with some existing kite flying experience, whether that's as a kitesurfer, power kiter or existing novice kite landboarder.
It starts with the basics; giving you all the background on the sport, safety, locations and conditions before getting you up on the board for the first time, slowing down and stopping. Then Fat Sand will refine your stance, introducing upwind technique and more challenging tricks such as sliding, riding toeside, turns and carving turns. Finally, they take you through every aspect of jumping - from the absolute basics, small jumps, improved technique for those hugh boasting jumps, then a few grabs and finishing with aerial transitions.
Progression is all about helping you learn quicker but with a deeper understanding of the core techniques, so you can improve safely at what ever pace is right for you. Progression DVDs are easy to navigate with clearly signposted chapters and menus meaning you don't always have to watch from start to finish but can dip in and out when you have enough confidence to move on to your next step. For kitesurfers, the sport of kite landboarding is a great cross over, giving you an opportunity to hone your kite skills, make the most of lightwinds, utilise some of your existing kit and still get some kiting in when its just too cold to venture into the water. Progression Kite Landboarding Beginner will help you adjust to the differences of riding on wheels and everything that comes along with it, from locations, equipment and safety through to the edging technique which is crucial for any further tricks.
For power kiting enthusiasts, Kite Landboarding is the obvious next step, taking your existing kites and skill, adding a board and giving you the opportunity for speed, distance and jumps. Progression Kite Landboarding Beginner will help you understand how to adapt your kite skills to power a landboard and all the riding techniques so you can handle the wheels under your feet.
For all you Mountainboarders here's your chance to boost massive airs and you won't need a hill or any ramps! Just get yourself a kite, learn the basic kite skills and Progression Kite Landboarding Beginner will get you up and riding, helping you change your stance and board technique to adapt to the new pull of a kite.
The proven Progression instructional method breaks down tricks and techniques into easily digestible chunks, helping you to understand not only what to do but why its so important. The use of split screens, amazing slow motion, graphic overlays and targeted repetition will help you memorise the key points and visualise them when you're on your board and in the thick of it.
So whether you fly a foil or inflatable, with handles or a bar, Progression Kite Landboarding Beginner is the only instructional DVD that will get you past the beginner stage and ready to improve in no time at all.
