This Week:

This week, our guest on the and The Kiteboarder podcast is kiteboarding pioneer and the founder of F-One, Raphael Salles. A former pro windsurfer, Raphael saw the light when kiteboarding was in its infancy and started one of the industry’s first kiteboarding companies in 1996. Raphael will be joining host Ryan Riccitelli to tell us about F-One’s 2008 product line including the company’s new delta shaped kite, the Bandit, as well as what’s coming down the line with boards in the new year. He will also share with us his newest feat, successfully crossing between France and Corsica, what he thinks about the differences between the US and European markets, and his take on crossing, speed racing, and kite racing.
