Casper’s Corner- Traverse City Kiteboarding Intern

The past few weeks have been crazy busy.  Between kiting, the Cherry Fest, Critter Control and exploring I haven’t had a minute to relax which is awesome.  I had an awesome session out on the Glen Arbor Bay with my surf board that was unforgettable. We had some awesome French students this past weekend that were a great challenge due to their lack of English.  With the help of some translation we were able to make it a great experience.  The whole family was a blast and everyone walked away stoked.

Yesterday we hit up Petobego all day and Justin brought his newly constructed slider over to the spot.  My new roomie Steve came out and took a bunch of killer pics and it was an amazing day.  My unhooked backroll over the sand bar had to be the highlight for me and seeing Lewis, Matt, Justin and Kegan tear up the slider was cool as well.  I can’t wait to get back out to the spot and hit the slider up some more  and start stompin some handle passes! -Casper

Who is Casper?
Name:
Jasper Meddock
Position: Coach
Bio: I first saw kiteboarding about 7 years ago in Islamorada, FL.  The very first time I saw it I knew I had to do it.  My dad bought me my first kite and board and from there I was hooked.  Kiteboarding has taken me all over the place, including Hawaii, the Outer Banks, South Padre Island, and good old Lake Superior.  To say that kiting has changed my life would be a vast understatement.  Every morning I wake up, I check the wind and try to find a way to kite

I recently graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth this May and am teaching at Broneah as part of a formal internship for my degree in Outdoor Recreation Education.  Matt and Keegan were extremely accommodating to me in getting me all set up and going for the summer and I’m super stoked to spend the next 3 months in MI.  Kiting at our spot in Petobego is unreal and rivals any kiting I have seen anywhere else.  I look forward to sessions all over M-22 and Petobego this summer and sharing kiting with all the students who come in for lessons!
