Australian kite surfer Ben Wilson has spent the last six years turning his passion and experience into a world-class company with best friend Dano See. After his 10 years as a team rider for Slingshot and having travelled the globe in search of big swells, Ben understands the value of bridging the gap between the two.
A pioneer of the sport, Ben was one of the first to use a surfboard in harmony with a kite and he continues to drive the sport in new directions. In 2011, Ben broke a world record, riding the largest wave ever kite surfed at Cloudbreak, Fiji. He continues to chase big swell and believes that the largest waves can only be ridden with a kite. For Ben, kitesurfing is the ultimate extension of surfing, providing the opportunity to enjoy even blown out onshore conditions.
He now spends much of his time either on Namotu Island where he first learnt to kite or on the Sunshine Coast with his family. Every year Ben hosts the Ultimate Kite Weeks on Namotu where he shares his second home and provides guests a once in a lifetime opportunity relax, kite, surf and get tips from a man at the top of his sport. Ben’s search for perfection never ends.
Dano See, BWS product designer founded the company with Ben and came into the sport in a similar way. Growing up in Newcastle and learning to kitesurf on Namotu, Dano worked for Cabrinha Kites and later Slingshot Sports where he fined tuned his skills. His passion for surfing gives him a unique ability to understand the needs of a waverider and build kites to suit.
Dano now spends much of his time managing production in Philippines, where he also extensively tests his latest designs or with Ben on the Sunshine Coast.
