I really enjoyed talking with kiteboarder and extreme athlete Jack Rieder (in part because I’m dying to try kiteboarding myself).
Even though Jack doesn’t do martial arts (yet!) he still exemplifies the strenuous life. I hope you’ll enjoy it! Here’s just a bit of what we talked about…
1:10 – What is kiteboarding?
6:47 – The disciplines of kiteboarding
13:57 – Other uses for kites
17:51 – Controlling the kite
21:28 – Injuries and risk
27:14 – Media and video process
30:36 – Training vs doing for high level performance
38:07 – The future of the sport
41:11 – The art of getting sponsored
