Happy Birthday Neil Hutchinson
 
An icon in the kiteboarding community, Neil Hutchinson celebrates a birthday today. And no better way to celebrate it than with a guy in his birthday suit! Neil (at his "office" on Ft Lauderdale's Tiki Beach) is instructing a fellow who has shunned Neil's numerous offers for a FREE PAIR of board shorts if he'll just put them on. Gotta hand it to Neil for going that extra inch, trying so feverishly to get another kiteboarder on the water. At the time of this writing, I do believe they still contact one another from time to time.

SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEIL!!!

Sorry for the crappy resolution of the image...it's a camera phone.

Happy Birthday Neil! My network filter at the office has blocked my accessing John's link, must be a good one, ha! Anyway, enjoy and give me some time. I need to go through my photo archives to dig up some images to put up myself.

N.B. - If anyone has some interesting Neil shots, let's see 'em!

Hey Rick, send me your email address and I'll send you the image directly. It's worth the effort!

I think that I saw Neil going the extra "inch" at the Adventure Sports party! I saw the extra inch racing across the red carpet, yelling like a mad man. Actually it wasn't the extra inch that was yelling, it was Neil, but you get the point.

Actually, I would also like to give Neil a free pair of board shorts if he will only keep them on!

Happy B-day Neil!

John,

I downloaded the image via air card and it's up. Strange ...

Kent, that happened after I tooled north after the party. Too bad there wasn't a photographer around, then again, maybe not!

Here are some shots of our man from across the years ...

Sorry, I ran out of time. There are SO many events going back years. One of these days I'll have to really dig into things and put together an nice compilation.

Have fun!
