Smoking Kiteboarding Tow Up by Nick Jacobsen

Nick Jacobsen's latest smoking red Tow Up, and World Record Tow Up.


What is Nick up to now?

Legendary Nick doesn’t seem to get enough of the kite tow ups lately, this past weekend making up the fun at the Armada Kitesurfing in the UK, where the novelty was colorful smoke grenades that matched the Cabrinha color line.

On an easy small tow up, using a 12m Switchblade he was all red smoke in the air. Original idea! But maybe he did have a bit of trouble breathing?! Check out the video to see silly Nick having fun.

Now, the real thrill about tow ups happened six months ago, when Nick got the GAME ON breaking the World Record of Kite Tow Up at 909 feet (277m) high! This happened in Cape Town, where along with a big team of the professional sailors he was put high in the air by the fast Team Brunel Sailboat. Watch the video to get a glance at all the logistics and teamwork that takes breaking a record.

Cabrinha Switchblade 12m, and an Ace board made the perfect set up in both cases. The kite is the most stable and secure to fly in any condition, even at more than 900ft in the air, and the Carbon Ace board is just incredibly light that we can see in the videos how effortlessly he comes down and easily lands…when he’s able to breathe, no matter how high his flying.

We’ll stay tuned to see what Nick’s next adrenaline rush will be about.
