Some films just make you want to go out there and kitesurf. “With a kite” is definitely one of them. This groundbreaking documentary, takes an inside look at the growing sport of kiteboarding through the lives and lifestyles of a group of core pro riders against the backdrop of one of the sport’s most respected competitions, the Triple-S Invitational.

Shot on location in Cape Hatteras, N.C., Hood River, Ore., Nitro City, Panama, Tampa, Fla., and Charleston, S.C., the film opens with a narration by Sir Richard Branson as the history of human flight via kite unfolds through custom watercolor cell animation. “With a Kite” then follows Charleston native and Naish pro kiteboarder Davey Blair and some of the world’s best riders as they make their annual pilgrimage to the Triple-S Invitational in North Carolina’s Outer Banks, the cradle of human flight.

Filmmakers Adam Boozer and Tim Tewell self-funded the project, traveling to numerous locations over the past two years to interview riders at the Triple-S and other events, and get insight into their lives as well as the growth of the sport.

An original music score by Charleston musical artists Joshua Smoak, Alex Collier and The Dubplates carries through the entire film.

Matt Collins, a professional kiteboarder from Jupiter, Florida is fighting for his Wild Card in the upcoming Triple-S contest. Have a look at what he’s capable of.

“I don’t like to really get stuck in one style of kiteboarding– I like to do it all whether it be wake style, surf or course racing — different conditions call for different disciplines. I think the best kiter is the one that can do it all, and that is what I would like to achieve.”
