With her new film, Writer/Director Katrin Ender introduces the fun and the lifestyle around a sport that has taken the world by storm.
After just 12 short years, kitesurfing has moved into the limelight and will replace windsurfing at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016. “We all flew a kite to get kitesurfing into the Olympics and unbelievably the kite has landed in Rio!” says Sir Richard Branson, one of the IKAs Olympic Ambassadors who also recently set a new world record by kitesurfing across the English Channel.
Katrin Ender has eight years experience of working in the film industry and has earned numerous international awards. Her work has been highly commended by world-class professionals, including Peter Scoones (BBC Blue Planet & Planet Earth) and David Doubilet (National Geographic). She has an in-depth knowledge of Africa and is fluent in four languages, whilst also working as a creative for ad agency Ogilvy.
The film was shot at Che Shale, an exclusive beach hideaway on the edges of the Indian Ocean, which also hosts the biggest annual kitesurf competition in Kenya. “Kitesurfing is so visual, exciting to watch and very attractive” – Steph Bridge, 3-time KiteRacing World Champion.
