Getting Litt!!!


Just a few Go Pro shots from today's session.  Brian "BCS" Smith, Eric Rienstra, and I all headed out on tiny kites in the REAL Slick.  With the 2011 Ro-sham-throwdown  coming up it was nice to get some realistic Hood River conditions.  I put up my LF 7m Envy and was blown away by how much fun it was to do some really powered wakestyle.  The kite is smooth and turns on a dime, took some getting used to but by the end of the session everyone was throwing down!


Show me some BASE!


 Showing off for Sensi's lesson





Big Spray!

2011 Triple S is a Wrap


What a week tons of sessions, tons of carnage, and a whole hell of a lot of fun.  The 2011 Triple S will go down as one of the best events kiteboarding has ever seen! I was super pleased with the results, and my body is definitely feeling it today.  I managed to walk away with a 4th in men's slick, 3rd in best session, 2nd in sliders, 1st in best wipeout, and 1st place overall....not to bad! Check out the full results here.  Props to Brian "BCS" Smith for taking 2nd overall and holding it down for the Hatty Crew! I would like to thanks my sponsors Liquid Force, REAL Watersports, Dragon Alliance, and O'neill. Check out all the video updates below and there will be a ton more coming in the next few weeks, stay tuned!
