This year we are made up of five students and four teachers. We started our journey in Washington, kiting on the Columbia Gorge each day and enjoying the beautiful nature around us.

Fig Bars have been an essential item for each of our daily kite sessions. "Jake, can you grab a Fig Bar?" Is a common phase as we leave the hostel and head for the river. The energy from the two action snack pack, ramps us up to go for our hardest and most difficult tricks.
