yo! Matias Ricci here.
Had the chance of going to Hood River, Oregon; for the Hood Slider Jam 2009, a couple of weeks ago. Worked hard with the local crew to finish building a Big Fun box for the event. Tonz of people showed up and the conditions were on!
We setup a kite park at the sandbar, with the new feature, 3 more sliders and a kicker. Great vibes on this noncompetitive event, everybody was shredding together. There was a really good flow on the water, even better than a cable park. Got to rock the new SS Darkside board, sick board! feels great as the new RPM kite, perfect quiver for a crossover between wakeboarding and kiting. It’s gonna be ”the 2010 wakestyle board” for sure!
Now back in Maui, for the rest of the summer. Next stop Indonesia in September.
