About Erik

I’m just like John Kerry . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  ah, no.

You could have called me an Adventure Sports Instructor at one time.  I have spent 13 years in the field of watersports.  Kiteboarding, wakeboarding, surfing, sailing, SCUBA, and rappelling have been professional endeavors for me.

I grew up in Minneapolis, and graduated high school in Hawaii.  I became a kiteboarding coach in 2002, and since then, I’ve taught hundreds of students how to kiteboard and wakeboard, at schools in the US and Internationally.

I was pro rider for Best Kiteboarding for four years, and I’ve competed and placed in international kiteboarding competitions, on the land, snow, and water, since 2001.

Before getting into watersports.  I was a superviser at a major retailer, managed a gas station, was a recruiter for a college, and I was a sales rep for a home improvement company.

After watersports, I was a Jumpmaster Trainer for Skyjump Las Vegas, during their opening six months of operation in North America.  I did client photography for Bootleg Canyon Flightlines, and I was even a Corrections Officer in the biggest prison in Nevada.
I have also acted in several professional theatrical productions with a national traveling drama troup and one of the most renown Opera companies.
I’ve gotten back into the water, several times, but for now, I’ve been working for a trillion dollar company for the last couple years.

ErikStone.info is my personal website, where anyone can come to check on my latest, public ventures . . . some are secret . . .
