No straps... Easy...
The velcro footed kid has done it again, this time pushing the boundaries of strapless freestyle further than most will ever achieve. It seems like every week Keahi De Aboitiz has another headline. Last it was kiting the artificial wave pool in Dubai, now it's yet another movie full of neat new tricks.
In his latest video Keahi shows the world not only how good he is at riding waves, but how he's got feet made of velcro and reflexes faster than lightning when it comes to strapless freestyle. Keahi's already known for several unique moves on a surfboard, he was one of the first to ever perform the aerial 360 without grabbing the board, and a few years later he worked out how to kick and spin the board a full 360 degrees under him while in the air. We're not talking about a 'kickflip' here, but a full end around end rotation.
That's not something to settle for in todays forever progressing world of kiteboarding, so Keahi has taken to pushing those moves with more precision than ever, and now even adding the two tricks in a combo. What's that? Yep, that means a full aerial 720... No hands... and the big one, an aerial 360 to board flip (even we don't know what to call it). Simply amazing, and that's not even taking into account the wave riding that's also present in this movie.
Check it out, but good luck imitating this one!
