Splinter – Winner Goes Strapless

by Kurt Hoehne

There’s no denying it, kite surfing is amazing. Boards are raced in a straight line, over waves, through tricks, around buoys and even upwind! And then there are the chosen few who manage to kite surf without straps to hold their feet to the board. One of the epicenters of kite surfing  is, of course, Hood River. Brothers Matt and Cole Elsasser not only kite, they have movie making talent as well. This video was named Grand Prize winner in the Epic Thule contest. From the Epic Thule site:
