Swamp Footage Video

Chuck over at Lifethereal put together a little edit from the other morning.  The crew consisted of Brian "BCS" Smith, Evan Netsch, and Nick Baines.  It was a fun session and I'm totally stoked on the edit.  Look for more coming from LTR and the Hatty Crew!

Kiteboarding Cover Vote

Looks like I'm in the running for the next issue of Kiteboarding Magazines cover.  Go and vote for me by commenting on the photo you like the best.  I personally think the night slider shot is the best one and I am really excited to see it make it to the final round of pics.


Feelin the Love

Since all the Triple-S media is about to drop, I figured I would put up my recent coverage.  Got the above shot published in Kiteboarding Magazine, along with the one below.  I am pretty stoked on how the shots printed, looks great.  

We also have a contest going at Real along with Kona Brewing Company for a vacation house and a Real Kite Camp.  They ended up choosing one of Elkus shots for the banner.  Been seeing them all over town, kinda strange.

Looks like a ton more coming out so stay tuned!

Rocking in Cape Hatteras!

So it has been awhile since I've put out any new updates, and a bit has happened since my last one.  First off I  managed to come away with 1st overall at the 2010 Triple-S. You can see the video updates from the event  here. The event was tougher than ever this year, there were so many talented riders here.  The riding level out of everyone this year was higher than all the previous years combined.  I was very pleased with my result and am already looking forward to next year!

 We also finished the 2011 product shoot for Liquid Force, it was great to have the whole force of the LF team in town.  Everything went over really smoothly, and I think LF has the most solid kite team out there!  Look for a ton of coverage to come out of the shoot and one bad ass ad campaign.

 Recently we have been sessioning a ton here in Cape Hatteras, the summer SW has kicked in and "The Slick" has been going off in the evenings.  Everyone is enjoying the warm wind and water, and with the extra summer light we have been riding well past the sunset.  Everyone here is starting to get excited for the next big trip out to Hood River for the KB4C event and the Hood River Slider Jam.  Until then we will keep riding hard here in Waves.

Green Slider Project

Liquid Force Green Slider Build from Nate Appel on Vimeo.

Just a short video from Nate Appel about Liquid Force's new recycled wall ride.  We constructed it over a few days out of the guts from the old Red Bull Fun Box.  We have scored a few sessions on it and the thing is a blast.  Finished it off just in time for the Triple-S, I'm ready for the action!
