Here is a sequence of Oliver Butsch. Oliver is an international male sports model based in SoBe, was one of the guys to attempt the Key West to Cuba kiteboarding crossing and is also a Cabrinha team rider. He is a very good hand on kiteboarding gear as well as you can see. What I want to know is if cocoa butter REALLY helps your riding or not. Only Oliver and Hawaiian Tropic know for sure!?

Finally starting to get the hang of some aspects of Photoshop. More shots to follow. Hope to get over to Corpus Christi to checkout the competition there. It sounds like some major riding talent will be shredding there.

Kent Marinkovic of Adventure Sports and Key West to Cuba Kiteboarding Crossing fame takes his board off and waits in space a while .... Hey, what did he do with that wave runner, it disappeared!

Thanks BM and for the tips! I still have to figure out how to properly use the clone tool for duplicating image components. I did move to a desk top from my laptop with the membrane mouse pad, makes a HUGE difference in cutting out images with the lasso tool, duh! The clone tool is nice for tidying up the ragged edges on high magnification though. Now I only need to figure out the other 98% of the capabilities of PS. Good news, there are a LOT more of this composite images to come from the Islamorada competition.

Hope you guys are getting some wind in Perth. From what they shown on ESPN with those extreme skiff races, you have mega wind out the wazoo! What about having those video camera hussars beanies for kiteboarders?

Rob Hassle is showing off typical good form near the photo barge. Rob is a pro rider formerly with JoJo kites and is a strong hand with foils or inflatables. Rob is also the Sarasota FKA AC.

Shred on!

Rob Hassle!!! No way, I would know him anywhere, I thought. It was a distant shot though, great form Rob!

Thanks!
