Homespot: San Francisco Bay and surrounding coast and delta. For the snow, it is Skyline in Utah
Favourite Gear: Ozone and Ultranectar. It is more the vibe of these products although the Instinct Edge rules!!!
Change in Life: Is this a trick question? In 1997, the kite changed my life eternally. Some people preach Jesus or Allah, I preach kiteboarding… It was also pretty cool having my son Luke. He has definitely changed my life.
Who do you look up to: Richard Branson has it pretty buttoned up but I really look up to my parents. I do appreciate all of those people who are willing to go for it whatever “it” may be, sports, business, life, etc
More Important than Kiting: Family and health
Personality Adjectives: Dedicated, happy, stoked, motivated, active, caring and full of love
Best and Worst Parts of Job: Worst: working - Best: freedom and fun
Who are your Heros: Once again, my parents and my family
Want people to Know: Life has so many things available to really make you happy and if you are living w/out being stoked you are missing the boat
Fave Drink: Beer
What do you in Freetime: Kite, tow surf, work, family, make bio diesel
Year Off: Traveling the world kiting all of the sickest lefts. Us goofy footers deserve those waves.
Best Move: They all feel good. For me it is not about a specific move, it is about the entire session or day and the high points.
Inspiration: Making things happen and being involved with things when they are just getting off the ground. Being an influence on things as they develop. Figuring things out and working on increased efficiency to any situation
