10m on 10m


S-bend

So after having 3 days of 30-40 winds I was tired of no wakestyle and riding 7m's.  So I decided to try a set of 10m lines.  I've never ridden such short lines, it was a whole different beast. I ended up riding a 10m Envy and it worked great even on the shorties. Its very similar to the pull at the cable park.  I had a blast and landed one of the most legit powered back mobes I've ever done!  Pretty much canceled small kites for me.  Time to make a short line bar!


Also got a nice vynal on the door at REAL.  The shot was taken by Bryan Elkus during REAL's BVI trip this winter.  Pretty excited to see it!

PCTV



Just a short video that we shot for Park City Television while I was in Utah.  Actually turned out great for the conditions, I'm pretty pleased.  Also a few shots from a session at KP from the other day, pretty happy with how they look considering the ultra light wind.




158 Skate

With a mellow day of wind we decided to head north to Nags Head.  We hit some thrift stores and scored some killer deals on threads.  After thrifting we hit the 158 Skate ramp in KDH.  The ramp is a good step-up from Browns ramp here in waves.  It was amazing to see team Canadas progression go through the roof. 




Shuvit to rock!

Lastly is a few clips of me riding at KP during REAL's Demo Daze.  The video features the 2010 Kaos board from Liquid Force.  It was a really good day of riding, look for a full length video from the day soon!

Photos,Photos!!!


As soon as I stepped foot back onto Hatteras, the sessioning began.  We started with skating on a local mini ramp.  Bryan Elkus scored some really good shots of all the boys.  For more shots from the session check out Elkus' Flickr page.



 The next day the SW was on, we rode the slick and got some really good flatwater shots.  After the sun set, we rode the REAL Dock and got some amazing flash shots.  Check back in for some shots from tonights session over the next few days.



These shots ran in Kiteboarder Europe.  Pretty stoked on how they turned out, and its great to get some over-seas publicity.  Last but not least are some photos from my past trip to the Super Fly Open.  The shots turned out great, can't wait to see more.




Check back in for a ton more over the next few days!

Michigan Trip


After a few weeks on Hatteras it was time to head home for a little break.  Time home is always nice, and this trip was especially great.  My best friend Derrin got hitched and I was part of the wedding.  Besides the wedding Michigan was full of fun times.  I skated a lot of new parks, spent some time with old friends, and even strapped on some skates for some nostalgic fun.


The first spot we hit was Grand Haven, since I left they put in a very nice concrete park.  It was fun to go to the beach that I spent so much time on as a youth.  Not to mention the sick park.



I also spent a fair amount of time skating the Modern Skate Park in GR.  It has to be one of the best parks I've ever skated.  They have everything, from a mini ramp with a spine, to a giant concrete bowl.  

  
After a few days relaxing and touring Grand Rapids, we headed off to Fredrick Meijer Gardens.  It's a large botanical garden/sculpture park.  It has been awhile since I have visited the gardens, and it was nice to see all kinds of new sights.




Da Vinci Horse.


The last thing on my Grand Rapids check list was to hit the infamous "Fish Ladder" Rail.  I know, I know, rollerblading is lame, but can you hit a 80ft rail?  I went from barely skating to hitting the rail in a matter of minutes.  It felt so good to get the whole rail again, after all its been five years.



Now I'm headed back to Cape Hatteras to get back to the grind.  Looks like an epic forecast for the weekend and I look forward to getting back out kiting, surfing and skating!
