The Kiteboarder is stoked to announce a new addition to the TKB crew.

Amy Hunter comes to the Kiteboarder Magazine with a professional background in marketing and international communications. We met Amy at the 2012 annual La Ventana Classic and KiteXpo event and were very impressed with her stoke for kiteboarding, eye for photography, creative writing skills and outgoing personality. For nearly a decade, she worked in university systems, before leaving her career in 2008 to become a full-time ocean junkie. Originally intending to sail from the Pacific NW to Mexico, she sold her boat in 2009, heading south from Oregon with a camper and quiver of kites instead.

Amy has a BA in English, plus a graduate degree in Intercultural Communication and Education. She’s currently hanging her hat on the east coast, working on a number of documentary projects and catching sessions when the winds blow in her favor.
