Hanging with New Legends

Over the winter holidays I jetted off to Maui for a few days to visit my relatives, feed my kiting addiction, and to obtain my kite instructors certificate. I get asked about kiting quite a bit and I figured I better have knowledgeable answers. Of course many of the questions are usually some version of, “What! How old are you? You’re too ancient to kite!”

While there the KSP Kite Surf World Pro Championship Tour was in town and I was able to meet many of the riders. One evening I got to hang with and show KSP riders Airton Cozzolino and Ralph Boelen how to BBQ up a proper steak. While the youngsters are merely barbecue beginners they rock their kiting.  Both are world class kiters.
