Cabrinha Divison Manager Dave Hastilow is an outstanding individual. In his 20-year history of kiteboarding, Dave has come a long way and has been part of the industry and Cabrinha since the early days. From teaching kitesurfing to being a Cabrinha sales rep in St. Lucia, to working for the brand in Honk Kong and now managing Cabrinha's operations on Maui.
In his new 'Intriguing Beings' podcast, IKSURFMAG's Rou Chater talked to Dave Hastilow about taking opportunities, life in the Caribbean, Hong Kong and Hawaii, work perks and the challenges along the way.
“I’ve known Dave for a long time now and his ascension through the kiteboarding ranks in the industry has always interested me. He’s taken opportunities when they have arisen and made some challenging life choices but that willingness to take a chance has always led to bigger and better things. Dave’s story is compelling and one I think you will enjoy!” – Rou Chater
