Hype Energy Denmark has just signed up one of the nation's most talented Kitesurfers, 21-year-old Jakob Rein. Jacob says, "Kitesurfing is all about speed, high altitudes and daredevil tricks, perhaps the closest we get to extreme sports in Denmark."
The first kites were sold in Denmark back in 1999 and ever since it has been the nation's fastest growing sport. In recent years, Jacob has visited Tarifa in southern Spain, Brazil and South Africa in search of bigger challenges and warmer climates.
