Drop the Naish crew on a remote island for a kiting recon mission during the windiest weekend of the year and what’s caught on film is nothing short of shear anarchy. Jesse Richman, Karlie Thoma, Christian Barcellos and Alden Simmer will have you gritting your teeth as they boost in the shallow waters of Lana’i while dodging razor sharp reef and remnants of an abandoned ship.

Driven by adrenaline, powered by wind and bonded by fire, this enticing edit will have you scouring the garage for a cooler and a kite for the weekend ahead.

The Naish Pro Team spends the year scouring the planet for the best riding locations. Often, we sit in the office trying to justify the budget with riders flitting off here and there with vague promises of "Don't worry, we're going to score!".

We wait, you wait. The shots come in and we are either relieved, or question what the h@#* we were thinking sending riders off to places that are not known for wind.

This year, our riders were tasked with documenting their sick sessions, wacky antics...and explaining their budget overruns! The team had to DELIVER ON FILM: the ups, downs, hangovers and stoke that they experience all year. They were challenged to get to know the local rippers, the international celebrities and the beach bum personalities that make up our kiteboarding world.
