Soul Riding in Jambiani

This drone video from Zanzibar features some of the best aerial footage of kiteboarding we've ever seen.  It was filmed by air tricks prod near the village of Jambiana, which is in the southeastern part of this Tanzanian island territory in the Indian Ocean.  The Indian Ocean is emerging as one of the hot-spots for kiteboarding, an extreme sport that requires tremendous strength and balance and is even more difficult to aerially film than surfing or windsurfing due in part to the very high speeds involved.

Kiteboarding FPV Reel


FPV X Kiteboarding


Kiteboarding is an action sport which is made to be filmed by first person view (FPV) drones.  With speeds reaching well over 50 mph (about 80 km/hr), kiteboarding is simply too fast for most gimbal-stabilized aerial photography platforms.  FPV quads are perfect for the task for FPV pilots up to the challenge.  In this outstanding piece by FPV_Aerials, you'll see what this adrenaline-filled sport looks like from a very up-close perspective.  This video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in May of 2022.

Kitesurf en Chuburna Yucatán México


Kitesurfing is notoriously difficult to film by drone: kitesurfers can routine hit speeds of well in excess of 50 km/hour (about 30 mi./hr), winds can shift, and of course safety is of paramount concern.  At the same time, it's one of those extreme sports which is virtually impossible to properly film without a drone.  In this piece by AirVuz contributor jelipegomez, you'll get an aerial view of some kitesurfing action in Chuburna, Mexico; it's located on the northern Gulf of Mexico shore of the state of Yucatán.

If you are looking for some epic close-up shots of kiteboarders that only a drone can deliver, this aerial video by Oliver Leyba is very hard to beat.  It was shot with a DJI Phantom 4 drone at Bonaire, a small Caribbean island in the Leeward Antilles. The island is a possession of the Netherlands and is the "B" in the sub-group group known as the "ABC" islands, the other two being Aruba and Curacao.  In addition to being stunningly beautiful, the ABC's have the distinct advantage of lying outside of Hurricane Alley.

Balazs Bus...

Kiteboarding is a challenging actions sport that requires considerable strength and balance.  Similarly, it's incredibly difficult to safely film kiteboarders by drone.   With speeds that can easily exceed 60 km/hr (over 40 mph), keeping the kite and kiteboarders in frame requires a great deal of skill on the part of the drone operator.  All reasons to appreciate this excellent drone video  by former Drone Video of the Week Winner Seven Roads Media, who filmed some kiteboarders cruising the coast of Hawaii's island of Oahu.     

FPV: Foilboard Kitesurfing in the Canaries




With their strong, steady winds, the Canary Islands are considered one of the world's top spots for the emerging extreme sport of kitesurfing.  It's no surprise then that as "ordinary" kitesurfing heads for the next level of intensity - in which the kiteboard sits on a hydrofoil - it's going to happen here.  And who better to film this than Red-FPV, one of the world's top FPV pilots.  Filmed off Corralejo Beach on the isand of Fuerteventura, this made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in October, 2019.

FPV: Texas Gulf Coast


Epic Texas || Extreme Kite boarding || Cinematic FPV


One of the few things more impressive than being able to kitesurf is being able to film a kitesurfer with an FPV racing drone.  In this amazing video, Outkast_FPV does just that, allowing us to see this most extreme of extreme sports from an entirely new perspective.  The video was shot near the town of Sargent on the Gulf Coast of Texas, and in 20 mph winds.   The video also captures some "regular" surfing FPV action in the nearby town of Surfside.  

The Netherlands' Zandvoort Beach


Kiteboarding - Up close and personal


This kiteboarding video via FPV drone is pretty spectacular.

The kiteboarder is highly skilled at taking on the powerful waves while the time of day is making all of the difference in the vibe this video brings. Golden Hour lighting hits the waves, streaking the frame with glittering sunlight. This flight is certainly a memorable one.
