The Real Coaches came together as a team to finance and build this slider. As quoted in the edit by Ryan Evans, “over budget…. tons of FRUSTRATION!” However, I was able to counter the instability issue and everyone appears to be pleased with the new ride.

Check out this quick edit by Bryan Elkus from Real Kiteboarding. This sums up a bit of the midweek section of our trip to the gorge and a bit of Oregon before the Ro-Sham Throw Down. Brandon Sheid, Bryan Elkus, Jason Slezak, and myself jetted around the state searching out wind and string surfing the majestic Oregon coast!

Hood River, Oregon: Site of this year’s 2010 “Ro-Sham Throw Down” wakestyle kiteboarding competition! Don’t have much to report except that qualifier day One brought enough wind for Heat One to take place. Then, the wind dropped as the afternoon progressed and heat Two was re-scheduled to Friday, July 16th. Bryan Elkus is throwing down in heat Two to qualify for the event that begins to take place later on Friday!

After an amazing session at Rufus on the Columbia River that saw winds between 35 – 50 mph with river swell reaching an easy 10-12ft. It was time for bit of a change.
Been hanging out with Brandon Scheid, Bryan Elkus, and Jason Slezak in the pacific Northwest. We heard the wind and waves were forecasted to fire on the coast. Therefore, Tuesday last minute, we packed up the truck and headed four hours over to the coast to meet up with Julien and Tekko for a wicked session of string kiting in the surf that day. Tuesday evening session saw 10m – 12m kites hitting well overhead surf. Again, getting a late start after the fog rolled out on Wednesday, we all enjoyed a fantastic 8m – 10m day charging waves, still organized but slightly smaller.

Always down to build. The last few days on the island have been calm. Most of the crew have been hitting “The Duke” a 60ft slider, by way of the ski. Nursing a bummed shoulder from skateboarding, I chose to sit the last couple sessions out. Wind will most certainly be back soon!

Occasionally from time to time, I don’t have any good material to offer to the table! However, there are many great individuals around me capturing the moment so that those who are not here to breathe, immerse, and live the lifestyle that we live on a daily basis can see a glimmer into our snowglobe (or surf-globe)!
Bryan Elkus, an excellent photographer and a proud friend of mine captured this weekends chaos! No wind, but that didn’t stop the Real team from pushing the stoke meter up a notch!
Brian “BCS” Smith went yard today, pulling out all the stops and going huge on “The Duke” today! So big, he nearly injured himself to pieces. Luckily, in the long run, BCS has been deemed good and will potentially be sore the next few days.
