"Into the Air" was born out of the
desire to create the first film of its kind for the Kiteboarding
community and audiences interested in the sport. Our approach
was simple; have the viewer experience the sport up close with
some of the best riders and get to know more about Kiteboarding
and the athletes behind it. We were able to work with athletes
who have an intimate connection with the sport by teaching it
to others as well as some of the top athletes competing at the
highest level of Kiteboarding competitions.
In three months we put together an award winning crew. It was
one of the most intense shooting schedules in a beautiful, but
remote location of Puerto Rico. The production took place for
only ten days with the backdrop of powerful winds, sunny skies,
and lots of Kiteboarding. Our journeys took us among the mangroves
in the Southwest, to the central rainforests, and interesting
experiences in San Juan to say the least.
Not only can you check out the tricks and
witness the huge airs, but you will feel immersed in the sport
through the visuals we captured. If you haven't tried kiteboarding
yet, we think you will want to go out and get that first lesson,
so you can experience for yourself what it is that drives these
athletes every day of their life.
