Chip is the 3- time Masters World Kiteracing Champion. Today course racing is a global pursuit, lending a metric to the sport that did not exist before. Kiteboard racing has a bid for the 2016 Olympics, and continues to be robustly popular. Chip is also one of only two people who has rounded the Farallon Islands, known for having one of the highest populations of great white sharks in the world. Chip also snowkites, and is highly involved in developing and popularizing this amazing contemporary sport.
The ocean, it's surrounding waterways, and their preservation are vitally important to Chip.
