In 2006 Steve saw a Kiteboarding Magazine and just knew I had to do this. It wasn’t until the summer of 2009 I finally witnessed the sport in action on Jetty Island near Everett, Washington. Then after a Youtube Frenzy I began a Web Research, created the forum name Wanna-Go on PSKite and NWKite and took lessons in Lincoln City, Oregon and Bellingham, Wa that Fall and Hood River the next Spring and just started buying gear.
Steve’s Passion for Shredding began with Snowboarding which started the summer of 1984 on Mt Rainer where he grew up in Mt Vernon, WA in the shadow of Mt Baker and was a Season Pass holder of The Mt Baker Ski Area from 1987-1993 where
Steve snowboarded every chance he got Especially Fridays! Steve also have been into Snowmobiling for Backcountry access since 1992 where I found the allure of Exploration and so far haven’t been Snowkiting near enough in the 5 seasons of kiting now have. Steve hope’s this is the year he gets back to Utah in winter after that awesome spring/summer I had there in 2012 on the water.
Steve currently live in Ephrata, Wa and have been an IBEW Electrician for the past 24 years currently building Microsoft’s latest Data Center nearby and mostly kiteboard Central Washington, Columbia Gorge and Puget Sound.
