It’s the future already, right? So no longer does there have to be any tenuously unsubstantiated “Dude, I jumped this high!” moments. We’re in the age of ROBOTS, and those lovely (and very clever) people over at PIQ have given us a full PIQ / North Kiteboarding set up to give away to one lucky winner!

Here’s how you get yourself in the running:

1. POST a shot of yourself at maximum kiteboarding excellence on your Instagram by March 10 2017. Tricks, fails, or just looking damn stylish indeed… it’s all good.

2. HASHTAG your image with #PIQMEPLEASE and tag us, @thekitemag and @piq.

3. KICK BACK and wait, as we get @northkiteboarding rider Reno Romeu to pick the winner! We’ll announce exactly who that is on here, so be sure to keep checking back.
