Here is a torrent of the famous Upwind video...the history of kiteboarding...a must see!

It was a free DVD from Red Bull, but due to music rights they didn't make it available for download in the internet!

Enjoy it now free here!

Hmmm, started downloading and it flew until it got to 33.9%, now it's pretty much stopped...Both in work and at home, same thing.

Are you seeding this Marc, or just linking to it?

OK, it's downloaded. It's in two parts and I've compressed it to MP4 Widescreen HD, which will play on computers, ipads, phones, etc.. part 1 is 1gb, part 2 is 0.7gb, if you guys want the whole 4gb dvd, or want it in a different format, let me know.

I watched it , was a little USA biased !
Hmm like they invented it . Bruno was a bit of an after thought.
I liked the comment in 00 or 01 there were no schools etc , well not in the USA
I did a course on 2 line wipkia type kites in aug 1999 with laurent ness at beauduc
Was a good overview but the American bias reminded me of watching U571 !

I also started on a two line Wipika, I'm just glad to still be here!!

Oh and there was no such thing as a Twin Tip then either, I used old surfboards....they didnt last long though! Shocked

For those interested here is a link to the iginal wipkia user guide.
Now quite how the Americans could say what they did I have no idea
In the guide they lay out self launching etc just as it's done now.
There are some hilarious photos scattered around wipkas web site too
