SBC MAGAZINE COVER!


So honored to get the cover of SBC Kiteboard Magazine! I have always been looking for unique ways to share our sport through different angles and viewpoints. Riding for such a wonderful company like GoPro, it is always fun to go out and try new shots. It makes it really easy with GoPro’s Hero3 Black that was used in this shot. As you can see in the shot, the remote on my wrist makes this all possible. Matt Collins and myself had been trying to capture a shot together in the same photo with a high five. That is how this all started. We had near-collisions and tangles. We would go home, check the shots and would have it, but there was always something wrong—a spec of water, out of frame, something. It was quite a challenge to capture the shot I was going for. We just started to play and ride like we do every day. I had him line up on the same wave and boost a strapless air right behind me as I was on the front of the wave. Magic was caught in a still frame as I watched him boost an air on the same wave. —Damien LeRoy
