The Full Story:

My name is Chase Hasch I was born in Oregon but moved to Maui, Hawaii at a pretty young age.

Being that I was in Maui one of the best places in the world to kite I wanted to learn from maybe 6 years old.

My dad wasn’t against it but he said I was too young and it was likely I wouldn’t like it because kites wheren’t as easy to use back then.

He did however get me a trainer kite to play with. I played with the trainer all the time and realized how much a kite could pull you courtesy of 40 knots Maui summer winds.

After learning great kite control and growing up a bit I got my wish for my 10th birthday present. I remember using a 3 meter kite and looking back on it I don’t think I really was heavy enough to kite before age 10 in Maui.

Several months after learning to kite my mom and I took a trip to the Dominican Republic (current home). We came to Cabarete and I loved it instantly and within the year we moved to the DR.

Around the summer of 2012 I started doing freestyle tricks going to blind among other tricks. By the end of the year I could do blind judges and rolls to blind. That was when my dad and I started planning a cross country kite trip. We started in Oregon, went down the west coast to California then across the country to South Padre Texas from there to Florida and up to Cape Hatteras for the Triple S.

The trip really improved my kiting and with the support of Cabrinha Kites and Hyperlite Boots and Bindings I was able to improve my riding drastically.

My first PKRA/VKWC WorldTour Event was in spring 2014 at age 15. I am looking forward to many more.

Update May 30th, 2016 – I got my IKO Assistant Instructor License.
