Flash at Jaws

Flash Austin Photo Olaf Mitchell
We ran across Flash Austin in Paia the other day. He was limping as he crossed the street. Olaf said, "Hey Flash, Did you get hurt at Jaws the other day?" He said  "No, I stepped on a sea urchin at Lanes and it went completely through my bootie, and man it hurts!" I said " Well, I hope it gets better soon and by the way congratulations on your session at Jaws!"
Here's a couple of images that Jimmie Hepp shot of Flash's session Peahi.

2011 US Open Snowkite Masters

I was impressed constantly by the advanced level exhibited, with so many Snowkiters climbing terrain, flying high, busting sick moves and exploring more of the mountain than ever before. Here’s to you Mountain Kiters!!! Thank you to everyone that attended the Snowkite Masters, and to all of the brands that supported the event in so many ways, the event is nothing without you.
