We received a letter from a WOO user not too long ago from the UK. This letter was quickly shared around the WOO office by our CEO. In his words…
“It is beyond amazing, and makes me so proud to be working for a business that truly changes people’s lives for the better. This is a small glimpse of the impact that all of your’s work has on people day in and day out, and hint towards the potential we have in all those other markets. Take a moment and enjoy.”
It was such a huge moment for us at WOO. And we are all so grateful to Leigh taking the time to write us this letter, and to let us share it.
Check it out.
“Since some initial lessons I have been kiting now for just over 2 years, back in February this year I got one of the first WOO’s and everything changed.
Sure my first 6 months of kiting was all about learning the basics, how to handle a variety of conditions, master good turns and how to hold an edge. Then I started leaning to jump and try basic tricks. The month’s passed and progression was slow with no real focus aim or goal.
Then I here’d about a new devise called WOO, interested I put my order in and waited for public release following the 2015 Red Bull King of Air Event. I remember my first session with a WOO clearly, pulling over 50 jumps I was excited to see what my first stats would be, only to find just 3 jumps had recorded at just over 1m (as anything under does not register). And that was it, right then at that exact moment WOO had become my mentor, coach, personal trainer and above all else a life changer:
- I started taking regular exercise to build the strength and stamina needed to improve technique, kiting weekly when possible substituted by trips to the gym to swim.
- I looked at my weight for the first time and changed my diet completely, out was fast food, cake and biscuits and in was salad, fresh fruit and fish. My BMI went from 25.3 (overweight) to 20.3 (healthy weight).
