How do Speedrider and Snowboard go together?
The kind guys at JN Kites sent me a few links and a video of snowboarder using their Speedrider. Speedrider? If you missed it – Speedrider is what you use for speedriding (duh) and Speedriding is: flying along the slope at high speed, a few meters or centimetres away from the ground. It looks kind of crazy at least for the people that come from the down on Earth sport backgrounds. There is getting air on a kicker and then there is getting air with a Speedrider. Nuff talking, first the links to some videos and then the video itself:

The guy using the speedrider speaks German, I’ll try to get the rust of my German and make a few sentences of what he is saying. Or if you happen to speak German, – you are welcome :)!
