He lives in Tarifa, Spain, and at the tender age of 13, with just one year of kitesurfing under his harness, is already making big waves.
Old School Jason Furness has a little history in the sport and was so impressed by Forest he ended up signing him up to Flexifoil over the internet! What with emails, Skype chats to Forest and his father Jeri, and checking out some amazing shots and movies on You Tube, this was more than enough to pull the deal.
Maybe not the most common way to sign up a new rider to Flexifoil but so far it has proven a great success: Forest has just returned from the Spanish Nationals with an amazing 2nd place in the Juniors. He was by far the youngest rider, competing against 15/16 year olds.
Such is Forest's sucess so far he has also been given the 'Wild Card' for the Tarifa PKRA next week where he will be joining most of the Flexifoil team at the grand opening of the New Flexifoil Centre, located in the heart of Tarifa.
Forest is one of these kids who just seem to master everything. He speaks English, Spanish & French surfs and skates at an amazing level, and even knows how to edit a pretty sick movie.
When it comes to kitesurfing, well, lets just say that after watching his skills boom over the last few months it's clear that this is one rider to watch out for in the months and years to come! Everyone at Flexi would like to take this opportunity to Welcome Forest to the team, we trust that this relationship will grow and make dreams come true for all who are involved.
