Few people know more about the kite-surfing industry than Mr. Mystic - Max Blom. Max has been supporting the sport with technical innovations for over 10 years and has traveled the worlds’ end to spread them around. Between the negotiations with Chinese manufacturers and Tropical-Island-photo shoots Max is out there doing what gives him his smile.. Ride the kite.
He has seen the world, ridden the shores and is now ready to go big. These are his words:
One of the first Mystic riders is Ruben Lenten. Through Ruben I met Filippo. He had an interesting dream. To ride the biggest downwinder ever done by a kite together with a group of inspiring people. I was stoked from the moment I heard about the project. Beside Mystic one of my other dreams is to do something very challenging with my biggest passion, kite surfing.
To cross the Atlantic Ocean by kite is what every kite surfer dreams of and especially me! Therefore I told Filippo I wanted to join him on this epic challenge. The idea was born by true passion and that is what the challenge is for me.
I feel very privileged to join the team and thank Filippo and the team for the opportunity. We will work our ass off to make it to the other end of the ocean. It will be hard at times but I am 100% sure we will overcome those moments. The great thing about this challenge is not only the adventure on the ocean but also the hard way to achieve it together with a group of people who share one common thing: passion!
“ If you want to go quick go alone, if you want to go far go together’’
Love it! Let’s go Max
