Early Summer 2009
This summer has already been quite productive which is difficult to imagine for a crew of Florida riders. Alex Fox our youngest bro-ling on the team has been hard at work making it out to as many Kiteboarding competitions as possible, he has also managed to podium twice amidst some of the most credible names in Kiteboarding. Comp Results will be listed at the bottom.
Fox was also able to head out to South Padre Island to represent the Abington name for Slingshot Sports. Alex gave put on demo's all week and again amidst some of the biggest pro's in the industry wowed the masses with is un-mistakeble Florida Wakestyle. The sequence photo is of Alex at the SPI Roundup Event hitting the sliders between demos.
As for other Abington updates Matt Sexton has finally come off the DL after two months of recovery from a broken foot. Matt was at the Projects in Orlando trying out the new Sesitec System 2.0 (the sickest new cable in the industry) when is foot slipped partially out of his binding result in his foot folding on itself, straining all the ligaments and tendons as well. Matt has been working hard rehabing and is finally getting to ride again, we'll have some HD footy coming soon from UpDown Productions of Matt's first day back on the water at McCormicks Cable Park.
Asides from the genral updates we look forward to bringing you some more wake-footage from the top cable parks in Florida and will undoubtedly have some high quality coverage from our next big event coming up on July 9th-11th in Stevenson, Washington (Check out SlingstockEvent.com)
