Andy Yates throwing down in some sick spots in Australia

Posted November 24, 2014 by Glen Bowden

Many of you would have seen the various episodes of the summer series Glen Bowden and myself released earlier this year. This video is something a little different. Although shot at mostly the same locations around the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, the footage we bring to you in this latest episode instalment features the cold conditions of Australia’s winter – well cold for us Australians anyway for all the European viewers out there.

All of the kiting sessions in this video were shot on the Ozone C4 – I find it handles really well in the gusty winter fronts that come through. I was also absolutely stoked to get out for a light-wind waveriding session out the front of my house. Given the fact that I live in the waveless Townsville, North Queensland for most of the year, I literally have maybe one or two waveriding sessions a year. I sometimes forget how fun it is to play around on a surfy in the waves. Surfing will always be my passion, but waveriding with a kite can certainly be fun too.

Glen Bowden was also kind enough to come up to the paragliding headland and get a few shots of me floating around up there on my Ozone Mojo wing.

I feel that I’m moving away from the pure hard-core wakestyle element of the sport and just enjoying every aspect of things that fly, whether that is kiting or paragliding!!
