Re: Hard working kiter wanted - Commercial Fishing Job - Ala

Every year I put my feelers out here for a hard working kiter (one poster a few years ago said that was an oxymoron! Ha.) to commercial fish and kite with me at my set net site (Fishcamp) in remote Western Alaska. This year I have a few good people on the hook but, alas, none are kiters and kiting b...

Re: Hard working kiter wanted - Commercial Fishing Job - Ala

I'm back on the forum as another summer approaches. The same guy worked with me the last 2 years and he has moved on to a bigger, better fishing job. If anyone is interested this year, send me an email. Read the original posts higher up for the details. Thank you flyingweasel for your really thought...

Re: new guy from Taos, New Mexico

Hi! I'm sure Stuart "el jefe Badass" is your instructor so I'm sure you are well aware of our SouthWest Snowkite Festival, but I thought I would reiterate. Practice hard so you can tear it up at next years event! http://swsnowkitefestival.com/ Enjoy! Traveler Terpening Desert Wind Kiteboarding www.d...

Kiter wanted for commercial fishing job in Alaska... again.

I am recycling this post to generate some interest. I talked to a million psyched kiters about working with me last year but this year it's been slow. I started this post last year and would like to refresh this thread and see if I can find someone for THIS YEAR! Actually, it ended up being such a f...

Re: Hard working kiter wanted - Commercial Fishing Job - Ala

I started this post last year and would like to refresh this thread and see if I can find someone for THIS YEAR! Actually, it ended up being such a fun and, in some ways, odd experience that I wrote a little story about it. Check it out http://www.travelerphotography.com/writing/short_stories/kitefi...

Re: New to forum and the sport :) -- South Florida

I would also like to welcome you to the sport! Take some lessons, get some gear and man are you going to learn fast and be ripping in no time with your board skills. I have a student on the Delaware coast who is an amazing skater and surfer. He picked up kiteboarding and was going up wind in a few d...

Re: Hard working kiter wanted - Commercial Fishing Job - Ala

Hi, There is no application process beyond telling me a lot about you. I don't want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with a loony. Read the original post very carefully and tell me if and why you are this person. Good to hear from you! Traveler Terpening Desert Wind Kiteboarding www.desertwindki...

Re: Hard working kiter wanted - Commercial Fishing Job - Ala

It's great people are excited about this. What's not to love? Kiting and making money. It's interesting to hear from so many other Bristol Bay fishermen past and present. It funny to think that during the season there are tons of kiters out there working their asses off wishing they were kiting. I h...
