So..... This just happened. Something that has been a long time in the works. Something that we are super proud of..... A SPORT KITE PODCAST!!!!!!!!!

Welcome everyone to the first episode of the Sport Kite Podcast where we will be talking about any and all things sport kite related. Over the next episodes we hope to talk about everything from how to set up your first sport kite, to more advanced stuff like how to tweak your trick flying, and kind of a little bit of everything in between. I am your host, Nic O’Neill, founder of, and I wanted to thank you for tuning in and listening.

In this first episode we get to meet the other members of the sport kite podcast: Paul de Bakker, Hunter Brown, Devin Cobleigh-Morrison, Zachary Gordon and John McCracken

Then jump right in to perhaps the most important question when it comes to sport Kites, and that is what is a sport kite.

Give it a like, a love, and a follow. There is a lot more great stuff to come!!!!

Where can you find it? Well it has been submitted to Spotify, Google Podcasts, and Apple and will be showing there shortly.

For now you can find it on the website at:

In a week or two the Podcast will be listed on the major platforms and you will be able to directly subscribe!!! Would love to hear what you think.
