How to Train Like a King | Jesse Richman

Saturday, January 23rd, 2016

“World Champion”, “World Record holder”, “King of the Air”. . . kiter Jesse Richman has added a hefty stack of impressive titles to his belt over the years. Tireless in his mental and physical training, always pushing the limits, Jesse is as committed and fearless as they come.

Whether surfing 30-foot swells at Jaws (Peahi, Maui), kiting across the entire Great Barrier Reef and flying upwards of 60-feet on his Naish Torch, if something involves extreme kiting, you can be sure Jesse is there to meet the challenge head on.

Though he makes it all look easy, don’t be fooled; there is a substantial amount of planning and preparation involved to sustain the level of extreme sport athlete. Catch a glimpse of what it takes with this “day-in-the-life” footage—filmed by Xensr on Maui—while Jesse prepares for a major session at Jaws and trains for Red Bull King of the Air.

Welcome To Pe’ahi

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Welcome to Peahi, she was awakened this past weekend by one of the largest swells to hit jaws in about a decade or so. With wave heights and periods that haven’t been seen in quite a long time as well. The wave itself seemed to have weeded the crowd out pretty thin, separating the men from the boys. but if you watch this you’ll see that many were also ready to stare this monster of A wave straight in the eye. Kai Lenny, Aaron Gold, Ian Walsh, Shane Dorian, & Albee Layer are just a few names that took on mother natures scariest and most beautiful marvel called Jaws. Please enjoy this video of waves we thought were un-surfable, being surfed.

Albee Layer – Youthful Movement

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Laird Hamilton considers himself lucky enough to be Albee Layer’s neighbor. While Laird was busy being the face of American Express (yawn), Albee was devoting his time to wooing the world with his mind blowing surfing. Albee might have electricity under his belt (again, yawn), but Albee has got the flair, an upside down backside rotation with an indy grab. With so much repetition of the standard frontside air reverse nowadays, Albee’s backhand progression is as crisp and refreshing as a nice wine spritzer. Wine spritzers are cool, right? Albee is also known to horseback ride off into sunsets and surf massive Jaws.
