September 2014 Rider of the Month Chase Leibfritz

Chase was introduced to kiteboarding in 2007 in Tofo, Mozambique. He watched and waited as a lone rider surfed wave after wave. “I had so many questions. I hadn’t seen anything like that before, but knew I wanted to to do it, ” Chase explained. The next day he had an introductory lesson to wind basics and kite handling and couldn’t wait to get back to Utah to try this new sport.
Chase grew up outside Nashville, TN.  Three days after graduating college, his car was packed heading west. He lived in Portland and Boise before finding his home in Utah.
Chase has been living in Sandy, UT at the base of Little Cottonwood Canyon for the past 8 years. In the winter months, if Chase isn’t snowkiting the Utah backcountry, snowmobiling the Uintas, or golfing in Vegas during high pressure, you most likely catch him making tram laps at the “Bird.” That is also where he met his wife, Ginger Dobie.
Chase has owned his extermination business, Hybrid Pest Control, since 2008. Any given day he may be dealing with raccoons, bedbugs, termites, or anything between.  His career choice allows him the freedom to schedule his work around the summer winds and winter storms.Favorite Winter Spot: Lake Creek
Local Beach: Lindon
