Facebook planet. Yes, that is how Bjorn and I met way back in July 2009 when I sent an SOS message to any kiter who cared to listen to a newbie kiter. He’s seen me progress from barely getting on the board and flying my kite to launching Just Kite It through Facebook planet. His passion for the sport of the wind and the water, kiteboarding/kitesurfing reverberates when we have quick chats on skype about kiting, comparing gear, life, girl and boy relationships. Kiters help kiters in many different ways. In fact, Bjorn is the reason why Leander Vyvey, our sizzlin Ripping It athlete of the week and I are now connected too.
