Andy Yates News:AY New Phase – 2013 thus far

Written by Andy Yates on . Posted in Riders News

Thought I’d do a bit of an official update about what’s going on in my kiteboarding career in 2013.

I have now taken my professional Kiteboarding career in a new exciting direction.

As you most likely already know, together with Suzuki, I have some new amazing sponsors, Ozone kites, Xenon boards, and Sony, which will enable me to continue to travel, attend photoshoots and events, as well as produce new videos.

I am now working with professional photographer and video maker, Glen Bowden, who has already produced some awesome shots and videos of me. Stay tuned for some awesome videos in the pipeline that are soon to be released.

My most recent event was the Red Bull Lighthouse to Leighton kiteboarding speed crossing race. I was stoked about Red Bull and the local organisers sponsoring me to compete in this race from Rottnest Island to Fremantle (Lighthouse to Leighton) and feel that this has inspired me to further develop this aspect of my sport.

I have also commenced paragliding! It is amazing and I plan to include this sport into my career. It’s a bit of something different and I think the sport compliments kiteboarding very nicely! When I get better I will for sure incorporate some footage into my kiteboarding videos for you all to see.

At the moment I am in New Caledonia and its surrounding islands for 2 weeks, filming with the Ozone kite team, so there will be some great photography and videos coming out soon. Stay tuned for that!

So yeah, it has been a bit full on lately, but I am really excited and looking forward to a busy and challenging new phase.

Cheers from New Caledonia,

Andy Yates
