Thanks. Fred inspires people with his riding and great attitude. He's not trying to save the world, he just wants to ride as often as possible because he's never sure how many sessions he has left. He's very young in spirit, but considers himself lucky to be able bodied.
I wonder if Mr. Kerry deserves his own thread? This one is about my man Fred.

Poster: MACTNKA 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.
Hey guys. I'm glad Fred is inspiring others to begin or to keep gng. This is what it's all about, and what Fred reminds us all of. Life is short, be thankful for what you have and make the most of it. Fred spreads the stoke at the beach every time, and he's a great powered rider. Love riding knowing that he's on the water.
