Hi guys, we spent the last few months working on this video and discovering some new terrain around here in Wyoming. We hope it brings on the stoke and keeps pushing everyone!

Just as we were finishing the video our good friend and kite legend Marty Lowe passed away in the Bighorn Mountains in a snowmobile accident. He was there kiting with friends and his final days were epic.

When I first met Marty I was just starting to hunt wind like crazy, and he told me stories and experiences that just fired me up. Since then I've found him full of wisdom, kindness and good cheer. Marty really supported us and encouraged our videos and exploration. He to spent much time far from the road seeking out perfect conditions. We dedicated this video to his memory and he would want us all to keep pushing on to do bigger and better things each day.

It seems he had a good life and that's what counts no matter how long or short your life span is.

Another incredible video. Your editing & dedication to kiting is so inspiring.

Thank you for dedicating the video to Marty. I just spent Friday kiting with him & Friday night enjoying the inevitable post-session indulgences of great BS & kite memories over a shot or 2. It was the 1st time I'd had the chance to really hang out with Marty & totally get how he could have been an inspiration to you guys. Such a tragedy yet - if you have to go early - go enjoying life to the fullest & he did.

Spectacular work - have been amped to see what you guys came up with since your teaser & it delivers!

Thanks mr moon, Marty was an awesome guy and very inspirational for us. He encouraged us and helped us do the things we're doing now. He was at the Bighorn Mountains on a snowkite trip, however the accident that took his life was a snowmobile accident mainly due to extreme weather and low visibility.
