Kiteworld Mag Issue 46--Calin Lisenbee

If there was ever a poster girl for the subtle pull of a travel destination or, for that matter, travel in general, it'd have to be Calin Lisenbee. The ex city slicker can pull together a tasty menu in a part of the world where a simple 7-11 can take on the aire of the gourmet deli section of your favorite supermarket. The next time you're in Cabarete, you'd do well to tuck in to the Kite Club Cafe. Bon Appetit and Happy Kiting.

Kiteworld Mag Issue 46--Litewave Dave Turner

The first time I'd cross paths with Dave Turner would be a few years back at the Jupiter Kite Invasion in South Florida. He was patrolling the water's edge while a local rider was demoing some gear Dave had lugged over from California. With his eyes peeled on the action before him, he was simultaneously doing a pretty good impersonation of a small child who's just learned they're getting a new puppy. The guy's enthusiasm and passion was immediately obvious. It'd be there that I'd make a first attempt at an interview. Now, three plus years later, I'd finally get a chance to follow up. I'm glad I did and even more glad Dave was kind enough to give me the benefit of the doubt for round two. Eleventh place world ranking...Damn!

Role Model

Robby Naish. Forty something and going strong. Very, very strong if this vid is anything to go on. Proof positive there's hope for us older types and that the stoke is still there in abundant supply. There for those willing to get off the couch to tap into it.

La Vida Simplistica

A "lifestyle flick" with a bit of kiting. And some excellent kiting at that.

Kiteworld Mag #43--Gabe Webber

The best part of the traveling lifestyle? That's a no brainer: the people you meet along the way. There have been too many to count but only a few that have so effortlessly prompted me to put pen to paper. Gabe Webber is definitely one of those people and I wish him continued good fortune as his gallavanting tour progresses. Sometimes we all need that little vicarious push to re-instill the notion that it's all still out there...waiting. Thank you, Gabe, for the reminder.
