Leander Vyvey have been professional kitesurfer since long time ago. He has been KPWT Vice World Champion kitesurfing (2008 and 2009 ) and 4 times Belgium champion. Now he return to kitesurfing again after 3 years without being able to kite because of a serious injury . Taking advantage of this forced break, and his experience traveling over the world's best spots for kitesurf, he created his own project: the company WindfishPro, and organize trips to kite spots around the world, specially to Dakhla in Morocco.
Leander ( sponsored before by BEST Kiteboarding ) recently joined to # WAINMANN HAWAII, and we wanted to take advantage of the global prsesentation of its new kite # maniac to tell this story, the story of his return to the world of kite at the highest level , even though doctors told him he would never do it again.
The video was shot between Tarifa and Marbella, in winter, and quite difficult recording conditions . January and February are difficult months for kiting here : strong wind , rain, cold ... but we think it was worth the effort. Hope you like it! Share it!!

Leander Vyvey, es kitesurfer profesional desde hace muchos años. Ha sido 2 veces subcampeón del mundo del circuito mundial KPWT en freestyle (2008 y 2009) y 4 veces campeón de Bélgica.
Ahora vuelve a hacer kitesurf después de 3 años sin poder hacer kite por una grave lesión. Aprovechando este parón forzoso, y su experiencia viajando por los mejores lugares del mundo para hacer kite, creó su propio proyecto, su empresa WindfishPro, con la que organiza viajes de kite a spots de todo el mundo, especialmente a Dakhla en Marruecos.
Leander (antes fichado por BEST Kiteboarding), fichó recientemente por #WAINMAN HAWAII, y hemos querido aprovechar el lanzamiento mundial de su nueva cometa #maniaC para contaros su historia, la historia de su regreso al mundo del kite al más alto nivel, aún cuando los médicos le decían que nunca más podría volver a hacerlo.
El video fue filmado entre Tarifa y Marbella, en pleno invierno, y con condiciones de grabación bastante difíciles. Enero y Febrero son meses muy complicados aquí para hacer kite: fuerte viento, lluvia, frío,...pero creemos que ha merecido la pena el esfuerzo. Esperamos que os guste! Y que lo compartáis!!
