Over 40 of the top wakestyle riders flew in from all over the globe to compete in the Hood River,Oregon RhoSham Throwdown. As usual, it was one of the funnest kiteboarding events of the year! The Slider Project guys built an amazing park with 4 features for everyone to shred. With heats of 10 riders that lasted 30mins everyone was given enough time to shred all the features and throw flat water tricks in the mix. Although it was supposed to be summer we got cold winter conditions for the weekend which made the wind a bit on the light side which is not normal for Hood River. The final consisted of 10 of kiteboardings heaviest hitters going for all or nothing. In the end it was Andre Phillip 3rd, Aaron Hadlow 2nd and Billy Parker 1st.

The Cabrinha crew with team riders Susi, Dre, Alby & Bruno hit France to meet and greet all of the attendees at the Cabrinha/NeilPryde French dealer meeting. Held in Wissant, a hidden jewel in the northern region, they spent a week checking out all the new gear with plenty of wind and a few surprise waves.

Pete reading a French dictonary. Just kidding. It's Neil Pryde's new book A Will to Win.
Guys, I don't think that is the way to the beach.
