Mike Birt

Ex professional windsurfer, grew up with the Kiteboarding industry. The UK first kiteboard Champion back in 2000, involved in a number of different brands building from the very beginnings of the sport.

Currently Director of Ktwo who import and distribute 2 of the largest brands in watersports equipment throughout the UK to various retail businesses.

Mike will not say it himself but he is an all round top guy who knows a thing or two about the action sports industry, he wont mind us saying he has been round long enough to know the trends, the pro's and the cons. We certainly would encourage you to sit down over a cool one with this humble man.

Lewis Crathern

Lewis is a multiple British Kiteboard Champion, RedBull King Of The Air podium finisher and all round nice guy. We have had the privilege of having Lewis join us year after year along with his faithful vanzee. 

What Lewis doesn't know about kiteboarding isn't worth knowing. As time has gone on, Lewis has needed to adapt and concentrate on a more business like method of working and has managed the balance between work and play really well. Many business owners will learn a lot from the inspirational guy.
