In the early days of point-of-view riding, sailors were forced to produce homemade mounts for their surf cameras. Today, manufacturers are already developing specific kite mounts for contemporary kites.

Narapichit "Yo" Pudla, Kathrin Borgwardt, Doque Delos Santos, and Lisa Nikitina won the Raceboard and Twin Tip divisions of the KTA Christmas Race Special, at Chalong Bay, Phuket, Thailand.
The 2013/2014 Kiteboard Tour Asia (KTA) season is underway. In over three days of intense racing, Pudla and Borgwardt scored bullets in all the Formula Raceboard heats they contested.
One of the biggest surprises of the event was the victory of Lisa Nikitina, in the Twin Tip class, which was run in separate alternate races from the raceboard class, allowing indefatigable riders to contest both divisions.
