Re: *new Episode* Zac Andrews and I talk RedBull KOTA | Kitesurf365

You do a very good job of it/ questions. Good work!

Thought about chucking it on YouTube with Skype footage even? I hate YouTube but they got good leverage for listeners/ viewers. You can kind of SEO YouTube too.

Jayzuz. If that is true that is so messed up! Kind of what might happen when you invent a new sport format for Olympic advertising revenue and send out a bunch of super inexperienced ( in some cases they have never raced this new invention before in others they are not far off beginners) youth that ...
