STAT FILE:

OCCUPATION: Instructor at Hayling Island kitesurf school and a specialist BKSA coach in wake and park style kiting
SPONSORS: Liquid Force, NPX wetsuits.
Chris came into kiting from a windsurfing and wakeboarding background. Having qualified as an instructor he spent several years teaching in locations around the world. His riding changed a great deal in this time and has now rooted itself firmly in the wake and park style direction of kiteboarding.
He was involved in organising the first Core slider jam in Perth and then returned to set up the UK's first park features on the Isle of Wight. Having run the UK's first slider event on the Island in Oct 2008, he has since travelled to park style events across the world representing his sponsors.
He quickly found heated competitions aren't for him and instead forever builds and films new features, pushing wake and park style kiteboarding and bringing people into this exciting aspect of our sport.
He is the brains behind this year's White Air event and deserves a lot of credit for bringing his vision to life.
