Welcome to Road Trippin' with Andy Yates. A series about where kiteboarding can take you.
In episode one, I travel to North Queensland to meet up with Andy Yates and we begin our adventure down the coast, kicking off in Port Douglas. Andy was the 2010 PKRA World Champion and is still not only an incredible kiteboarder and amazing athlete but a super down-to-Earth guy willing to step outside his comfort zone to experience something different. He's studying medicine, with a focus on tropical and indigenous medicine, a fact that we explore a bit more as the series goes on.
The weather teased us a bit in the first couple of days but we managed to pull it together for a great session out on the reef!
