In the wind of that recognition of a local hero, I'd like to recognize John Kerry who at 71 often kites in my local spot alongside many of us newbies. Although he is the secretary of state and often has to be in a different country every day, saving the world, he still comes back to Nantucket to inspire us and make us believe in the brighter future!
I actually did spend an hour and half with John Kerry ten years ago in Puerto Rico teaching him how to stay up wind, since he knew a little how to kite but was not very confident. So I was in Puerto Rico for a photo shoot at the time with AIRUSH and they asked me if I could help him.
I had body guards all over me.
