The stoke

Sometimes, when you've been doing a sport for a while and you're getting frustrated about not getting better and progressing, you need someone or something to remind you why you started the sport in the first place, and why you love it.

Last week I met an 8 year old kid who had just learnt to kitesurf in Cabarete. Whenever I saw him on the water he would smile and wave - he was loving every second. He was STOKED to be kitesurfing - It was awesome.

Next time I'm frustrated, I'll take a step back and just remember this kid face!
