The Colombia river gorge has always been a draw for up and coming kiteboarders, and the Bridge of the Gods competition each year was their day to shine. This year the competition expanded to have a small pro and strapless division, and a few pros that were around got to experience the vibe of this competition that is more like a festival. These are the highlight videos, produced by Brandon Bowe and friends. Typical Gorge conditions are high wind and big chop, and equally big wipe outs.
