Quick HitsDepartmentsON THE COVER - Issue 10 - NOÈ FONT


Rider: Noè Font 

Location: Cape Hatteras, North Carolina 

Photographer: Toby Bromwich

“I think this might be my favorite photo this year. It was during our annual trip to Cape Hatteras when Craig Cunningham spotted this little marina on a downwinder. He saw the potential it had for photos so as soon as our photographer Toby arrived we knew our first shoot had to be there. 

We launched our kites from a sketchy parking lot and carefully got in the water. The space in the marina was very tight so we took turns hitting these big pylons. We also hit the roof of a sunken boat for a bit but I fell and ripped my board shorts with the sharp fibreglass; we decided it wasn’t worth it and went back to the tall pylons. We slowly got more comfortable and started trying different grabs and handplants on it. This Bonk-to- Melon Grab felt really good. Toby shot the trick from a few different angles but this one turned out the best. It was the last one of the session and I love how he lined up the iconic Chicamacomico water tank in the background. 

It’s not easy to find ‘street’ spots like this one for kiteboarding. So many things have to line up and the wind is always an issue. Which is exactly why photos like this one are so special. 

So thank you Craig for taking me to this spot and Toby for snapping the photo. And Kitesurfing Magazine of course for running it on the cover.”— Noè Font
