"UP THE COAST: A Must-See Kitesurf Movie!"

Kiteboarding is not just a sport; it's a lifestyle, a passion, and a journey that takes enthusiasts to the most stunning and remote locations in the world. One such journey was recently embarked upon by Kevin Langeree and his team of Reedin riders.

This blog takes you through their unforgettable road trip up the coast, filled with adventure, camaraderie, and, of course, epic kiteboarding sessions.

The Dream Begins

Kevin Langeree, a legend in the kiteboarding world, has spent his life competing and winning titles. However, his passion for the sport goes beyond competition. It's about following the wind, exploring new places, and creating unique experiences. For this trip, Kevin wanted something special. He decided to travel up the coast with three four-wheel drives equipped with tents on the roofs. He invited some of his Reedin team riders, including Mario Sanchez, Parker Sage, Esther Nagy, and Damian Girardin, to join him on this adventure.

The Team Assembles

The trip began with the team gathering and preparing their gear. Each rider brought their own unique skills and experiences to the group. Mario Sanchez, a 21-year-old from France, is known for his big air and extreme tricks. Parker Sage from Hawaii is an all-around water sports enthusiast who kitesurfs, foil kites, and surfs. Esther Nagy, a new member from Hungary, was excited to join the team and see what the journey had in store. Damian Girardin, co-founder of Reedin and product designer, joined the trip despite a back injury that delayed his departure.

Hitting the Road

With the team ready, they hit the road, excited about the adventure ahead. The first challenge came early when one of the vehicles got stuck in the sand. It was a reminder of the unpredictable nature of such trips. However, it also highlighted the team's camaraderie and problem-solving skills.

Camping and Kiteboarding

The team set up camp in some breathtaking locations. One memorable spot was a beautiful lagoon with waves in the background, creating a perfect setting for kiteboarding. Kevin and Mario took to the dunes for some thrilling rides, utilizing the wind to glide down the slopes. Mario, known as "Super Mario," lived up to his nickname with some impressive jumps and tricks.

A Day of Foiling

The next morning, the team woke up to perfect conditions for foiling. Parker, with his 17L board and 995 surf foil, was eager to hit the water. The waves were small but perfect for foiling, providing a smooth and exhilarating ride. The team's excitement was palpable as they enjoyed the pristine conditions and each other's company.

Chasing the Wind

As the trip continued, the team found themselves chasing the wind further south. Despite some initial bad luck with wind conditions, their perseverance paid off. They discovered a spot with strong wind and blue water, ideal for kiteboarding. The team spent the entire day on the water, riding waves and performing freestyle tricks until sunset.

Close Encounters

The adventure was not without its wildlife encounters. From curious wildlife near their campsites to a nerve-wracking moment with sharks, while body dragging, the trip was full of exciting and sometimes tense moments. These experiences added to the thrill of the journey, making it even more memorable.

Discovering Hidden Gems

One of the highlights of the trip was discovering a hidden lagoon with pink saltwater. The unique location provided a stunning backdrop for photos and a rare kiteboarding experience. Despite the extremely salty water, the team enjoyed every moment, soaking in the beauty and uniqueness of the spot.

The Perfect Session

The final leg of the trip took the team to an incredible spot with a river mouth and strong, consistent wind. The conditions were perfect for some big jumps and high-flying tricks. The team kited until the last light of the day, making the most of the epic conditions.

Reflection and Gratitude

As the trip came to an end, the team reflected on their journey. It was a unique experience, combining the thrill of kiteboarding with the freedom of a road trip. For Kevin, it was a dream come true, sharing such an adventure with his team and riding new, incredible products they had worked on for years. The untouched beaches, the perfect wind, and the camaraderie made it a trip to remember.


This road trip was more than just a kiteboarding adventure; it was a celebration of the sport and the lifestyle that comes with it. Kevin Langeree and his team of Reedin riders showed that kiteboarding is about more than just the ride. It's about exploration, pushing boundaries, and creating unforgettable memories with friends. Whether it's navigating sandy dunes, foiling in glassy waves, or discovering hidden lagoons, the spirit of adventure and passion for the sport shine through every moment.
