KITEBOARDING: PAST AND PRESENT

Friday October 23, 2015 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM PDT
220 Guggenheim Hall, University of Washington, Seattle

A technical show-and-tell by Cory Roeseler

Man was meant to fly, and the dynamic sport of Kiteboarding gives every man, woman and child the means of rising above the surface to enjoy the ecstasy of flight, powered only by the wind.  The development of the new sport over the past 4 decades is brought to life by Cory Roeseler, one of the early pioneers.  With help from his dad, Billy, who imagined a better way to fly, these two transformed the dream into reality, beginning with early experiments on Lake Washington.  With solid underpinnings in aeronautics, water skiing and board sports, Roeseler explains how the innovative fire ignited in the 1990s and how kiting achieves new heights with hydrofoils.
