Transmorph: Manel Arpa becomes a kiteboarding alien

Manel Arpa is a talented Spanish kiteboarder. The thing is... he is a "Transmorph"; he shapeshifted into an alien rider.

He's young and fully sponsored. Manel Arpa Zuriguel was born in 1996, but he rapidly turned pro. He has already participated in the PKRA's Freestyle tour, but he seems to excel while doing his own things.

"'Transmorphed' was an idea started on September, 2014. The suit I used during the video, I bought it years ago for a party, but I decided to take it out from the shoebox, and bring it with me once again to Brasil," explains Arpa.

"Doing some funny, different, and original short movies is one of the ways of taking kitesurfing into another level. Together with Bythrbanl/Bass Kool, we made it become a reality."

What's more impressive: the suit or the tricks? Manel Arpa keeps the kiteboarding standards high. Maybe even in the outer space.

Whether you think of a kite as a wing or a sail, you want it to be lightweight, resistant, waterproof, but also stiff and flexible at the same time, so that they could respond to all flight requests.
