Kitesurfing: this kid is pushing the sport forward

The future of kiteboarding is in good hands. A boy leads the way.

Give a young kid an exciting toy, and he will sleep like a baby. Any doubts? Just watch how this future kiteboarding champion rides his virtual kite.

Leyton's dad is a kitesurfer, so he decided to build a custom homemade kiteboarding simulator that allows the youngster to jump, turn, and rotate 360.

The rig includes the kite bar with two directional lines, and a specially designed kiteboard shaped using a colored bodyboard with straps.

The kitesurfing grom has created several new tricks which will likely be included in the list of official freestyle kiteboarding tricks.

Nico von Lerchenfeld has had the time of his life at Surf Snowdonia, in Wales. But he was not there to surf.
