Getting some Face Time

Just wanted to pop in and share some of the recent print coverage that has been hitting shelves.  First Bryan Elkus and I scored the cover of Kitesurf Magazine.  We worked hard to get this shot, riding well past sunset amd taking a few licks.  I am really happy to score the first shot on the Hatty up-rail!  You can check out some video action from the session HERE, shot by my man Nate Appel.  Man it has been a great season out here on the island.

Next is the first of the 2012 Liquid Force ads, all of the shots came out of our amazing trip to Cape Verde.  I had such a blast hanging out with the whole crew, and I must say that 2012 is the year of LF!  Check out the shot from looks amazing!!!

Got ups?

Lastly is some print found in Kiteboarding Magazine from this years Triple S contest hosted at REAL Watersports.  I was really stoked to score the opening spread, that one sure got the adrenaline pumping.  Overall its been a great summer and the ball keeps rolling, I'm off to Mancora, Peru for REALs annual Peru trip, pretty stoked to get some time in world class surf.  Check back for some South American updates!

Summer Time Sessions

After an amazing trip with the REAL Team to Hood River, OR  I arrived back in Cape Hatteras with summer in full swing.  The Bermuda High was locked in place and the SW was on, the only downside was the staggering side of heat.  Temperatures in the 90s combined with high humidity made for a staggering mid day session, I only lasted an hour.
SW on tap all day!

I spent my session taking solo laps in the slick, a thing you don't get all that often these days.  Its always nice to be think of all the time I've spent in that little corner of the world is astounding.  Riding is feeling solid these days, really having a fin time learning switch tricks and adding more new grabs.  All in all a great day!

Check out a short piece that I wrote for Kite Spain Magazine,  I was pleased with how it turned out and we got to use some of the shots from the 2010 Liquid Force Photo Shoot.  Finally made it back to Hatteras after an amazing trip to Hood River.  I will gather up all my media and make a post in the upcoming week.  Enjoy!

First session back in the Gorge

We arrived in Hood River super late in the evening, and awoke to some typical howling winds.  Everyone was really excited to shake the dust off and get some riding time in the river.  We headed down to the event site to register for the KB4C event and get our shred on.  These are just a few quick shots from my bad the battery died in 6 minutes, oh well.  Looking to get a ton more this week so check back in soon!
