I’m not sure that video should be classified as AWESOME! The rider was good no doubt however the only thing unique about the ride was the suit, which is kinda silly. It goes without being said that a day of riding is better than a day in Corporate America. If the economy continues in this downward turn their will be many more riders wearing suits.

Sorry for the poor review, I was hoping for AWESOME!

BIG G!

I think that the original post could be from the "Corporate Kitesurfer" himslef. Its not horrible, just a little cheesey! It had me laughing, so from an entertainment perspective mission accomplished!

Why y'all hating? I thought that video was cool as shit, no so much for the riding but for the symbolic act of defiance against the man. How many times have you had the corportate suit on and were just dying to skip out of work and ride.

My old CPA firm had their conference room overlooking Cypress Park and I would be stuck in there for hours just watching the whitecaps and of course it didn't help that during tax season you never got out of work until after dark. Now I have a dead-end,non-corporate job and I get out at 4pm at the latest and I couldn't be happier. Last night was my 5th day in a row of riding. To borrow from Mel Gibson in Braveheart - FRRRRREEEEEEEDDDDDDOMMM!
