This might seem like an odd post, but I am looking for a hard working kiter to work with me as a crew member at my commercial fishing site in Bristol Bay Alaska. I am a long time kiter and run KiteSurf Alaska (www.kitesurfalaska.com
) in the summer as well as Desert Wind Kiteboarding (www.desertwindkiteboarding.com
) where I winter in Arizona. Since I will be kiting as well as fishing, I was thinking it would be ideal if I could find a hard worker who will also kite with me!
The type of fishing I do is called setnetting, which is a shore based style of gill net fishing for red (sockeye) salmon. I worked for 10 year on boats and recently bought this permit so I could kite and sleep on shore at night. It's much more civilized. The area of Bristol Bay we setnet in is called Ugashik. This is a unique opportunity to see a beautiful and remote part of Alaska and to make some money and get some cold water kiting in the process. Wildlife, scenery, rustic living and of course fish are all part of the experience.
But, of course the job comes first, so in addition to being a kiter, I am looking for someone fairly specific for this job. I are looking for a male
crewmember with some or all of these attributes:
-Physically strong (very active, athlete types are ideal)
-Accustomed to hard outdoor work (must have experience in outdoor/physical work. Fishing experience is good but not a must. Construction, raft guiding, type job experience are good.)
-Easy-going & mellow attitude (I need to be able to live with you for 30 days in the middle of nowhere)
-Fast learner and willing to work hard (fishing is anything but predictable so some times we will fish day after with little sleep, and other times we will have entire days off)
Pay and time commitment:
-We pay for a plane ticket from Anchorage, Alaska to where we fish.
-We provide all food and housing.
-We need a crewmember for about 30 days (June 20-July 30).
-Pay is 10% of total catch (a job perk is that i'll get you any kite gear you want for cost).
We live here in Flagstaff, AZ, during the winter and would like to meet anyone who is interested in this job. A face to face meeting is absolutely a must so if you dont live in the area, consider how we can meet.
Please call or email me to off the forum if your interested. No shit kickers. Serious, qualified kiters only.
