REAL Kiteboarding

Back in October I was at my house in Hatteras and working on photos with my friends from REAL Kiteboarding in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. We loaded up a 21 foot skiff with a big generator and 1500W of studio lights and headed off into the sunset to get some cool shots. These are some leftovers from the shoot for kiteboarding magazine. The two riders are Brandon Scheid and Dimitri Maramenides. Dimitri likes to push things really hard and was clearing the 15 foot tower on the boat by a solid 30 feet on his jumps. He was starting his jumps about 5-10 feet from the bow of the boat and just BARELY clearing the tower. He almost hit our strobes that were strapped to the tower a few times. We had 4 photographers and a HD video man on board. It was a wild shoot.
