Just like these guys, Ian is at the forefront of kitesurfing and as I look to the future of our sport, I see the integration of kites into the average surfers quiver and one thing you can bet on, they will be all be watching Ian Alldredge to see what is possible with a surfboard and a kite.” Says Jason Wolcott
