There is no question Mauricio Abreu is a legend in kiteboarding. From the very beginning, he has pushed the boundaries as much as anyone who has been involved with the sport. Now he has decided Slingshot is the best place for him to continue doing that.
You can find kiteboarders all over the world. It seems like virtually every ridable place has been conquered and written about either online or in print. Our signature is on every continent and in almost every country on the planet. We have kited exotic places like Alaska, Korea, Cambodia, New Caledonia, and even Antarctica, so it’s hard to imagine that a location with warm water, steady wind, pristine beaches, and long consistent waves with a mix of reef breaks and soft sandy bottom barrels has so far been home to only a single kiteboarder.
