Mike Stewart: the future kitesurfing champion

Mike Stewart, the best bodyboarder of all time, has taken his first kitesurfing lessons in Gran Canaria, Spain.

The 9-time world bodyboarding champion from Hawaii has hit the water with the support of a local kitesurfing school and showed enough talent to pursuit a future career in the wind riding sport.

Mike Stewart kicked off his first sailing miles in difficult ocean conditions. There were small waves, grey skies and some wind gusts, but the bodyboarding champion did well.

After a few tweaks and corrections, the 47-year-old waterman showed great progression and sailed away from the zodiac boat and the kite instructors. Watch Mike Stewart kitesurfing.

Pozo Izquierdo is one of the most famous windsurfing and kitesurfing spots in the world. With southwest winds, this sheltered beach break pumps perfect and consistent right handers.

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.
