let me introduce
- Hi all,
I'd like to introduce myself to this group. The name is Luk
Stanek and I am currently residing in Vancouver B.C.. I am new to
this group but have been involved in traction kiting for about five
years. I have been fortunate enough over this time to have travelled,
learned and competed at various buggy competitions around North
America and Europe thanks to sponsorship from Libre Powersails and
JoJo Wings. It was in Europe where I saw kitesurfing for the first
time last year. I was hooked all over agian. I started with my land
based JoJo traction kites and needless to say had some interesting
situations develop. Thankfully my sposors were thinking about water
kites at the same time I was perfecting my waterpacking and paddling
techniques last fall.
Since then I became directly involved with Skyline Wings (NA
distributor for JoJo and Libre) and JoJo factory in the R&D on their
new water kites. Taking me to Maui with Pascal Hardy (Twin Tip)and
various destinations in North America and JoJo's factory in Europe in
the process of finalizing these kites.
Now,that the JoJo WET is done (Check it out at
www.jojokites.com )I'll be visiting the many favorite spots for
kitesurfing across Canada and the US from middle of Sept. till Dec. I
will be armed with gear for both land and water from JOJO, Libre,
Roberts and Twin Tip on this North American Demo Tour.
I'm looking to hear about your favorite spots and want to check
them out. If you are interested in seeing or testing (no obligations
of course) any of this equipment while I'm in towm then please let me
know. I can be reached through my hotmail (luk_stanek@...) or
luk@.... Looking forward to hearing from you and ripping
some waves together..
