15 Minutes of Fame – 3 Ozone Kiters. Plus, Winter is On!
Kiteboarding Magazine’s current November 2011 issue ran an article “Inspired To Ride” by Cimeron Morrissey. Featured were Ruben Lenten, Lou Wainman, Clarissa Hempel along with other famous kiters. Among those others were 3 Montana kiters who fly Ozone foils all winter long: Joel Beatty, Cale Benson and yours truly, Noah Poritz!
Some choice quotes were included in the article, my favorite being: “Even when it’s 100 degrees out and I’m slaving away in the sun… …my mind is thinking about kiting. It keeps me motivated when life hands me a bad deal. The draw to kite is a drug. I need my fix. And a day of snowkiting is main-lining that drug—nothing else matters.”
Yes, I said that. While the story was mostly factual there were a few errors. One was calling me a snowboarder! Oh, well, maybe that will improve my cred!
Other news from the Rockies: The 2012 snowkite season has begun! Last weekend 14 inches of snow fell in the Big Horns of Wyoming and kiters from Billings and Cody were flying their Frenzys to harvest the first session of the winter! With that first layer of white, every kiter in Montana and Wyoming is chomping at the bit to head to the Biggies.
