Summer’s a Wrap

I’ve enjoyed an incredible month out here in Hood River, Oregon but it’s time to head back down to the Sunshine State for the Surf Expo! Keep an eye out for my latest edit from here and OBX.

CKA Nationals – Podium

Stoked to have made 3rd place in the CKA Nationals freestyle division! The level of the top guys was insane and less than half a point apart! Shout out to Niklas Reynman for taking 1st and Julien Verglas for 2nd! Also, a huge thanks to all the sponsors! Drink Runa, Best kiteboarding, Slingshot Kiteboarding, JN Kites, Real kiteboarding, Dakine, and the College kiteboarding Association.

New Sponsor: Ride Lit Creations

I’m stoked to say that I am the newest addition to the Ride Lit team. They produce the most legit apparel dedicated to kiteboarders and water enthusiasts alike. If you’re going to ride lit, you mine as well dress to fit the part. Based out of California. Check out their site at Ride Lit!

Collegiate Edit: Balance Act

Check out my latest edit for the Collegiate Kiteboarding Association’s video contest! I’m stoked to have finished 2nd place overall among the east coast riders, getting bumped from 1st by merely one point! Our school, FAU, finishing 1st among all the schools as well! Also, check out the Kite-Freaks (vimeo.com/groups/kitefreaks) Vimeo page for the latest and best kiteboarding videos!

CKA Vice-Champion!

I’m stoked to say that I finished #2 in the overall rankings of the east coast tour for the CKA (Collegiate Kiteboarding Association). I managed to pull off a few podiums in freestyle, strapless surf, and an overall 1st place in the racing category to place me as the vice-champion among the east coast schools! Also, our kiteboading club at Florida Atlantic University was able to take the gold with the most overall points. This has been a great way to end my education before graduating, and I look forward to the National Championship this May where we will have the chance to compete against western schools in Cape Hatteras, NC.
