The growth of kitesailing appears limitless as course world champion Johnny Heineken enjoys his rig on the water and the snow while his sister Erika shares the show.
Erika Heineken presents play-by-play insight as her famous brother wins again. She shows you why racers often choose course boards instead of normal kite boards when competing. The Lord of the Wind Showdown (Los Barriles, Baja Mexico) brought some of the world's best kiters together and was lots of fun for everyone. So many kites, so little space.
"A crew from the SF Bay Area including Johnny Heineken, Chip Wasson, Taylor Stein, and I drove out to Utah for a quick snowkiting adventure. We put up our biggest kites, strapped our boards and skies on, and hit the hill at Skyline Ridge." - Erika Heineken, February 2012
