Hello all, my name is Will Crumpacker. I’m a 20-year-old from Hood River, Oregon. I started kiting at 12 years old and have been passionate about the sport ever since. My summers are spent here in Hood River, my hometown, while my winters consist of riding at various locations across the globe
What about kiting do you enjoy most?
Although I enjoy strapless and foiling, big air is my passion. My favorite conditions are flat water and 30+ KTS, so the spots I enjoy the most are Lyle, Tarifa, and Maui Pro Pool. Still, there is nothing quite like a nuking session in downtown Hood River!
What gear are you riding?
I spend most of my time on a twin tip, but when I change it up to a foil or surfboard, the Supermodel never lets me down, which is why I find Reedin so special. There is never a moment where I doubt I have the perfect kite for the given conditions. I feel the best when riding an 8M Supermodel with a Dreamstick X and a 133 Kev Pro.
Moving forward, I would like to bring a fun personality to big air kiteboarding and inspire people to join the sport.
