LOCATION: MAUI, HAWAII | MODEL HUMAN: JESSE RICHMAN | OCCUPATION: PRO-KITEBOARDER
When Jesse Richman isn't flying high in the sky as a pro-kiteboarder, he's soaring the seas below...well below...as an avid free diver and spear-fisherman.
I recently had the opportunity to catch him before he left on another international kiteboarding trip so I could witness how he un-winds while he's home and on land, which is rare for this avid traveler and adrenaline junkie.
Turns out, this pro-kiteboarding, Maui-native fits in pretty well with everyone else here on Maui...by spending his time in the ocean day in and day out as a surfer, athlete, free-diver, fisherman and all around amazing human being.
But oh, he's broken world records, so he's not EXACTLY like everyone else on Maui ;-) Check him out at www.jesserichman.com.
