Triple - S 2012 Warm Up Davey Blair

Rider: Davey Blair
Photos: John Byja

Davey Blair was in town last month for the Naish Nation demo tour and scored a warmup session for the 2012 Real Kiteboarding Triple-S. Look for daily updates from the 2012 Triple-S June 2-8th on sbckiteboard.com.

"I was riding the broken dock on the slick behind Real Watersports when I realized the John Wayne was all alone in the boat Basin. The wind was 25 knot plus so power was not a problem inside the basin. I was on the Naish 10m Ride kite that is super stable, making it easier to ride in such a tight spot. You should never ever hit rails hooked in so don't get any ideas. I was basically sending the kite to get on the rail. It was not ideal rail riding conditions by any means. It was something different but more importantly it got my adrenalin up and was fun. I'm not sure what was more fun hitting the rail or the 100 mini tacks I had to take to make it out of the basin"—Davey Blair
