2013 - New Sponsor and Gear!

Hi Everyone,

As many of you know, I have been riding Slingshot gear from some time, having made my way through the Link, Rev, Rev 2, Octane, and 2011 and 2012 Rallys. That's a lot of seasons and lots of good times! Many thanks to Chris and Slingshot for the support!

In 2013 and moving forward I'm excited to say that I will be on Cabrinha gear, flying the 2013 Cabrinha Switchblades. Many thanks to Steve Gunn and the guys in Miami for making this happen! I've always considered Cabrinha a top-tier brand with great products and happy to be a part of the team now. I'm looking forward to flying the kites next week - big time. *bg&

Chris I imagine it was an allusion to the origin where each brand's kites are produced - of which I have no knowledge

It has nothing to do with "production". ;-)

I'm sorry my posting has detracted from Ollie's original thread.
While I'm not a big supporter of his choice of brands, I'm stoked that he has found a new supporter none the less.
Ollie is an amazing kiter and a all-around great person. I get inspired when I see him out on the water at SI. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of his huge front-roll kiteloops this season... such a cool trick! ;-)

I had no idea Pryde Group was Hong Kong based - that is crazy!
