Hood River

HQ Kites recently introduced the NEO II to the kiteboarding industry during the AWSI trade show in Hood River, Oregon.

The event featured over 30 exhibitors set up outdoors along the scenic Columbia River Gorge, which is famous for wind.

New team rider Willie Stacey of Idaho joined HQ USA staffers Craig Young and myself for the demonstrations and product presentations. Retailers from across Canada, USA, and South America were on hand to test new products in ideal conditions.
