ABOUT BEN

ben wilson kitesurfer big wave

A pioneer of the sport, Ben was one of the first to use a surfboard in harmony with a kite and he continues to drive the sport in new directions. In 2011, Ben broke a world record, riding the largest wave ever kitesurfed at Cloudbreak, Fiji. He continues to chase big swell and believes that the largest waves can only be ridden with a kite. For Ben, kitesurfing is the ultimate extension of surfing, providing the opportunity to enjoy even blown out onshore conditions.
