I spoke with Sam Guest at Tantrum Kitesurf / Peak Performance the other day about my on-the-water Kitesurfing Adventure Skills program (Dec 1-8). It was such a pleasure to meet and speak with Sam, he really gets it and we had a great time talking about kitesurfing as an adventure sport, the long distance experience, sport as exercise/diversion/play/tool and as a way of being in the world, flow, taking responsibility for your own experience, taking kiting more seriously as a sport, preparation as the foundation for adventure and creativity, the balance between achievability and challenge, goal setting, and how to build a life outside full of serious fun.
Sam digs the project so much, he said that he thinks Kitesurfing Adventure Skills is the coolest thing to happen in kitesurfing in the last 10 years! I just listened to the interview again, and I’m pretty psyched!
