What's it like to be a Professional Kiteboarder?

“The bubble is us, it’s ours. The bubble is our friends, our enemies, the good, and the bad. The sunny days, the clouds, the storms, the planes, the airports, the taxi rides and delays.

A mysterious man makes the statement above, and while telling you everything, tells you nothing at all. So what is this ‘Bubble’ he speaks of?

Rewind to your last kiteboarding holiday. Remember the feeling of living, eating, breathing kiteboarding? All you think about is the wind, your next session, your gear you ride. That’s what it’s like for professional kiteboarders.

All the time.

Until they're too old, and the bubble pops.
