John loves seeing his students ‘light up’ as they discover kiteboarding. The sport, to him, is a perfect combination of enjoying nature, getting workout, improving mental toughness, and pushing one’s own limits. He’s been kiting for 9 years in some of the world’s gnarliest and most beautiful locations including Spain, South Africa, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Taiwan, Canada, the USA. He plans to snowkite in Antarctica after this season in the Gorge!
