Fluid's Head Coach, Kyle Eade, hit the road this month and traveled all the way back home to New Zealand. He coached for 2 weeks at the beautiful Piarere Water Ski Club which brought a back a few memories as that was the site where he first attended a ski school as a student back in 1988.
"It was great to get back home to see some familiar faces but also see a bunch of new talent who all trained hard and learnt a ton over the 2 weeks.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to book Kyle to come to your home site in 2015, limited dates available.
Parrish states, "So pumped about getting to 2 ball at Fluid last month and want to say thanks to Kyle Eade for his support and helping me out with some key points to work with my skiing."
