Jon Malmberg

NAME:  Jon Malmberg

AGE: 44

LOCATION:  Hood River, OR.

RIDING DISCIPLINE(S):  The 2012 Razors are my weapon of choice with the feet mostly in boots or a strapless surfboard.

A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF: 
I moved from Seattle to Hood River full time in 1996 to follow my wind addiction.  Adam Koch first strapped me to a kite in 2000 at Rufus and scared me enough to take up the sport.  I followed my kiting passion to Maui to work for Naish in 2007, and after three years and a serious Maui burn out, I returned to Hood River where David Tyberski handed me a Razor to try.  Did not take long to bug him enough to get a full quiver.

Presently I work full time for Insitu on UAV’s and kite as much as possible in the summer.  Also within the past six years I have gotten heavily into ACRO paragliding, speedflying, and BASE.  If ripstop nylon, wind, or freefall are involved, I’m there!

FAVORITE PLACES TO RIDE:
Anywhere I can shed the wetsuit.  My most memorable session was a surf session at Punta Abreojos, Baja, where we lived on the beach for three weeks.

GOALS FOR 2012:  Try to ride more like John Perry.  Man I wish I was young again!
