Prime Minister Chretien getting into Kitesurfing

Postby Toby » Tue May 28, 2013 7:15 pm

Thanks to Captain and Instructor Ty Luckett in Buxton, North Carolina, former Canadian Primer Minister Jean Chrétien learned how to wakeboard and started to learn the technics for KiteSurfing. The lack of wind made it impossible to try it. Next time!

Ty was fantastic, took his time and explained everything carefully and made sure the former PM was comfortable, after all, its not every day a 79 year old decides he wants to take up kiting! After the ride on the video, the water got too shallow for the boat and the former PM had to jump back in the boat as we headed for deeper water. Everyone thought he was done, but he insisted on going back out as soon as Ty said the boat was deep enough!
