What happened to Adam Koch?

Postby ragingpenguin » Wed Jul 02, 2008 4:12 am

I remember seeing a lot of Adam Koch up until a couple of years ago what ever happened to him? He was a big inspiration when I was getting into the sport 5 years ago - it would be nice to hear what he is up to these days.

One of the Kite mags should do a follow up on some of the early pioneers - I think most people would appreciate it.

Adam was out at the Ozone snowkitemasters taking pics and throwing down. I believe he lives in CO now with his wife and new family. I just met him this year, super kind person..

He spent almost all his time I saw him behind the lens, I have seen abunch of the shots he took used all over. Great Pics.
