Chuck Patterson, one of kiteboarding’s first pro riders and all around waterman, is back in kiteboarding — kind of! Chuck recently joined the Naish SUP team and has been in Maui kitesurfing, windsurfing and SUPing on their new 2012 gear.

For full details on his new sponsorship, see Congratulations Chuck! The  DR picture of that little kid  on your shoulder and you jumping that tree in Mojave are still some of our favorite kiting images after all these years.
