Ep. 289: Long Distance Kitesurfing - Bowen Dwelle


Here's one we haven't covered yet. Bowen Dwelle joins the ASP to talk about Long Distance Exploratory Kitesurfing, Foil Boarding, Flow, the long distance experience, athletic journeys, the nature of (what is) adventure, athletics and intuition, and the new normal in adventure sports.
Bowen's Adventure Portfolio:
I am a lifelong outdoors sports enthusiast (skateboarding, snowboarding, rock climbing, sailing, windsurfing, surfing, SUP, open water swimming, trail running, MTB, kitesurfing, paragliding) and have in the last ten years become a passionate and now semi-professional kitesurfer. While most people think of kitesurfing for the freestyle (tricks) and perhaps also for wave riding, there are other disciplines that are gaining traction and progressing the sport: course racing, foil board kiting and my specialty: long distance.
We have developed techniques to allow truly long distance travel – 100+ miles in a day and 1000+ miles in a single journey -- by kite, and we have done several trips on the coast of Brazil and elsewhere using these techniques.
I was fortunate enough to be one of the principal athletes in a film production that we just finished about the long distance experience, exploring the northern coast of Brazil by kite. We shot last summer (2016) and just finished editing and it's now screening on Canal OFF in Brazil. In the meantime I was in the Philippines in March 2017 shooting another similar expedition and will be back in Brazil in September 2017 shooting an entire series of long distance exploratory kiting, from Atins to the mouth of the Amazon and up the river to Santarem!
