Playing in the Slider Park

The guys at Slider Project are doing great work managing the largest freestanding kite park in the world and it's right here in Hood River, OR. Since I kite most of summer weekends I have finally decided to try my best at using the features that are in the park starting with the kicker (I'll try sliders next). I was scared at first but it turned out to be so much fun that I cannot wait for next weekend to go there and play in the slider park again!

Oh and I was super stoked to see Karolina Winkowska in the park. She is 3x World Champion in freestyle kiteboarding. It was amazing see her in action and to be able to ride just next to her.
