Chicago Kitesurfing's very own, Rorke Miller, has been chosen as a finalist for the 2013 Old Pulteney Maritime Heros Award. Rorke helped develope a program in the Traverse City area for underprivilage youth to share in his passion for the open water. His dedication did not go unnoticed and the crusty sea captain was nominated by coworkers for his efforts which are descibed in greater detail by the link.

Rorke is a great guy who rips it up down-the-line strapless....

Thanks for the mention, Lynch! And the compliment, Adrien.

It was a great 3 years on that ship. It sure got into my kiting time though.

I am appreciative as hell for any votes I get from the crew. It would bring a ton of a attention to a worthy program. However, I selfishly dream about getting to go speak in San Diego and rip some waves while I am there.

Thanks again. Voting takes 3 minutes if you are so inclined.

Damn Bros I appreciate the Love!

Heads up, I have founded another pretty sweet program up here in TC.
We teach basic boatbuilding to underprivileged kids who build 14' SUP's that they paddle in the Summer.

If anybody wants to copy it in their community, hey, that's the point!

Domin8! :)

Great stuff you're doing my boy. Of, course I put in a vote for you. Hopping you get this. It is recognition and honor you deserve.
