Getting around the course
The 2nd half of the Kite Foil Gold Cup was all about making progress overcoming obstacles. While there's still many dues to pay- the hard work paid off and I finally got around the course for the first time.  A small victory but Ill take it. I made some hug...

baby steps
Big breakthroughs on the St.FYC Bluerush Thursday night kite series last week. Although by looking at the score sheet- you would hardly notice. The good news is I can get around the course. Its not pretty- especially downwind but its getting better. I beat ...

Breaking through the Wall
Week 2 of the St.FYC Thursday Night Kiteboarding Series. 1 mark at a time, I'm going to get around this course- even if it takes me the whole series. It took just about everything I had to make downwind to the starting line, up the 1st beat, around the weat...

Want your sails de-riged by me after racing at the crissy field slalom series? 
Become a $250 sponsor for the crissy field slalom series & I'm on it http://goo.gl/AB8C7o 
Thanks for your support guys- after just 2 days- we've raised 14%. Way stoked! I'm adding some incentive for the $250 season sponsorship. Besides the marketing material, press releases and official web page + a pre registered spot on the starting line, a $250 donation puts you in 'wind god status' for the remainder of the season and Ill even de-rig your sail on race days.

Baja take 3: rediscovered, reinvented and redefined
Rediscovered This was our 3rd trip to Baja peninsula over the past 4 years but this years packing list included a few new things. It was all or nothing so the whole family came along for the trip + the new foil board & quiver of kites. The entourage include...

2015 SF Kite Foil Gold Cup- Day1 and 2: paying my dues
By the start of the first race, I had already mathematically eliminated myself from qualifying into the final gold fleet. A rather disastrous start if there ever was one one but this race was was not for the winning, not even for the taking. This race was j...

Just when when I thought I was out, they pull me back in.
If you would have told me- there would be 35+ windsurfers racing on the SF city front in 2015 I would have laughed at you and told you to get a to kite and join the foiling revolution. While the San Francisco Bay windsurfing scene provided the roots for the...

1st kite foil race: postmortem
After nearly 17 days of learning and getting the hang of the foiling kiteboard- I thought I might be able to get around the course. A major feat still- seeing how I can't even go downwind, tack or gybe yet but even the the worse case scenario was- a ride ba...

The first 5 days of kite foiling: the ups and downs
http://bit.ly/1M3ZPsJ
The first 5 days of learning to ride a foiling kite board have been an overwhelming experience. I've gone from wanting to give kiting up completely, to having realized that this might possible be the coolest sport ever. Day 1...
