Before leaving for a soccer trip with my son to the Turks and Caicos Islands; I thought maybe I could sneak a Kiteboarding Lesson in. So I started emailing Kite Provo 6 months prior, pinging them once in a while...knowing deep in my heart that I probably shouldnt spend the time or the money since I havent ever been able to get up on the board before. Time crept up on me and I emailed them once more. Every message was positive, encouraging, and easy going. When I got there one more email scored me a lesson with Mike. He came to the hotel with a big smile and drove me to the most perfect location. In light wind Mike ingeniously worked me through fear, anxiety, and apprehension. I am getting on in years so I wasnt expecting anything but fun. He knew exactly when to give the "old Lady" a break and would hold the kite for me so I could catch my breath. I remember thinking there is no way I can go on. After asking him, how much more time do I have and hearing an hour and a half, I was like Oh geez, I gotta pull myself together. Just when I was about to give up, He said....Just go back to pulling yourself part way out........................I was up on the board and went over a quarter mile. I was screaming and crying yelling and sobbing. My dream came true in Turks and Caicos...Mike is my Hero.
