Being Back Home

August, 2013   //   by Chase Hasch   

Since I got back to Cabarete I have learned quite a few new tricks. While I was doing the cross country trip I did get more consistent with my riding though, and now, I have been landing all my tricks much better. I have learned how to do 313s, KGBs, and I am grabbing the bar on a couple of other tricks.


Lately, I have been kiting with my friend, Nico Suriel, one thing I really like about kiting with him is that he is always pushing me to try a new trick and when I get it, he is just about trying another and getting better and better
I have been kiting with Nico pretty much every day and kiting with him is defiantly helping my skills. I have been doing this thing for my past few sessions were I first go kiting in the bay or at kite beach both of which are very choppy the bay even has a pretty big shore brake at times. This makes my La Boca sessions way more fun because I land way more tricks at La Boca and the flat water always makes me happy.

I can’t wait for next Tuesday because my best friend, Peter Knof, gets back! Peter is a great editor and he has done work for Soloshot. He said that he would help me make a video. I have not made a video since spring 2011 and I can’t wait to make one now because I have gotten a lot better since the beginning of the year. I really want to see my progression.

Since getting back I really have not been getting to many photos but hopefully that will change soon. Today my friend Noah who loves photography is coming back and I can’t wait to ride with him and get some pics while we’re at it.

Since riding and hanging out with Nico I have gotten a lot better at kiting and I feel that if I continue like this I can start doing a couple of PKRA events. I like to compete but doing it here can be very disappointing with having the same judges for almost every competition. I do however really want to compete in the PKRA I just don’t want to make a fool of myself so this year I am spending most of my time on the water practicing freestyle. I have been doing great so far. Now to go practice some more. Today I’m going to try 315s and NISs can’t wait!
