The latest hi-tech toy in the world of imaging is the drone. In essence a radio controlled multi-propped helicopter thing. Now there’s different levels of drone from the top of the line many thousand of pound units as used by Timmy Boydell here in Kernow and the £400 Phantom off Amazon which you can slap a GoPro on.

Whichever system it is it’s allowing us that rare aerial view of the world that was previously limited to photographers ponying up the big cash to rent a helicopter. The plus side being the downdraft from a drone is negligible as opposed to a proper heli which really get on the surfers’ wicks.

In 2001, I discovered kiteboarding in Hawaii during windsurfing and immediately made my first transition. British titles followed and then PKRA, where, in my first competition, I secured a second place in freestyle and then in the waves. In 2008, I won all the stages of the KPWT Wave Masters world tour and became the world champion in kitesurfing, which I saved in 2009. In addition to the competitive side of sports. I also took part in long-distance kiteboarding trips to raise money for charity - I took a kiteboard from Ireland to Wales, and in 2006 from the Canary Islands to Morocco, a nine-hour non-stop transition of 140 miles. Now I compete less and spend most of my time combining kiteboarding with my other passion, yoga, through my Experience courses in Mauritius, Morocco and at home in Lanzarote.
