Heading back to Hood River next month for the next stop on the Kite Park League tour! Super stoked to have Patagonia as the title sponsor this year! Got some placings to make up since I'm currently sitting in 9th in the rankings so the next few weeks will be all business.

Super stoked on the progression of my interview skills! Didn't say um once or blank out and forget what I was talking about. Wind Voyager killed it on this production!

Frothing on this new DAKINE ad shot by James Ropner. I pretty much just went on google earth and found this cliff. It was pretty sketch because as I would approach my kite would start to hit some gnarly turbulence and could even hit the cliff if my timing was off. Each time I dropped back down I would either drop out of the sky or lofted.
