The allure of kiteboarding is hard to resist. Exhilirating, exciting and thrilling. The best thing about it is that anyone can get into it. Director Bob van de Gronde of Eyeforce, said, “With Chapter One, we wanted to make a travel and adventure film that would appeal to both kiteboarders and people that have never flown a kite before. We spent two years travelling the globe documenting kiters from very different walks of life, from Bebe, a local talent from a small Brazilian fishing village,to Sir Richard Branson, who kiteboards around his private island in the Caribbean.”
As Branson explains in the movie: “I first kited about 14 years ago and now I find kiting the best sport in the world. You get away from the hustle bustle of life and bounce over the waves. You just go where the wind takes you.”
