6th rider contest

The HTC Atlantic Kite Challenge



The 6th rider for the HTC Atlantic Kite Challenge will be selected by a video contest and a meet and greet with the team. Don’t worry – we are not expecting a professional production. All you need to do is send us a video explaining why you would like to cross the Atlantic Ocean with a kite. Simple right?

Off course – we want to make sure we all arrive at the other side safely. Some risks we cannot manage in advance – others we can! That is why we do have some selection criteria for our last teammate. Please check below, get inspired, and be in touch!

The Enable Passion Team

Please note: a personalized video for the Contest is highly appreciated!

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for your message! Arriving in Spain the 22nd shouldn’t be a problem. Looking forward to your application – and good luck with that thesis ;)

    One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team.
