Leonard Loro, started kiting about 30 months ago, his skills as an unstrapped kitesurfer are extraordinary, as you can see from this video. The video was shot in Byron Bay over summer 2013 Film and editing by Diego Chamon Photography
Leo has been surfing for more than 18 years and this really shines through in his unique strapless kitesurfing style, which is characterised by slashing powerful roundhouse cutbacks, massive big airs and massive big airs combined with body and board rotations. Everywhere we have travelled with Leo he has immediately gained the respect and admiration of other kiters, not only for his amazing skills but also for his passionate enthusiasm and endless energy. If the wind is blowing, Leo will be on the water with his Reo, only stopping long enough for a quick bite to eat and/or a drink to refuel, then he is straight back on the water!
Leo is sponsored by Ozone, Kitepower Australia and Axis kiteboards, expect to see a lot more of his exceptional riding skills.
