Default Neil in Cabarete

Neil basically found Cabarete for kiteboarding, and has been raging and exploring the poor Caribbean country for years. He joined us for the last part of a trip in August of 2005, and brought new life to the party. Cheers and Happy Birthday Neil!

Hey Neil,

Have a great Birthday and all the best in the year to follow!

Here is a post from 2007 on another Birthday with only a few images of Neil's long and very active career in promoting kiting events
all over. If I took just one shot from all the events I alone have seen him in as organizer, announcer ... this post would be much longer.

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

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!

Thanks Neil for all you have done and continue to do for kiting since the start of the sport!

Vision of a future sport and selfless devotion of helping people and sport meet together, created a unique kiteboard education and experience the last 12 years on Tiki Beach.
Please keep it up.
Happy Birthday.
