Kite Fantastic Team Riders

Kite-Fantastic team riders:

Andrew Goodricke, aka Woody - Team Captain

Woody has been involved with Kite-Fantastic for some time now. He was one of the 16 who went with us on our 2005 Iceland expedition and has demonstrated his incredible range of skills there, and on a number of our Black Rock Sands meets. He's a great spokesperson for the sport and is always keen to help out fellow riders. He's also a bit of a joker and has starred in a couple of hilarious, now rather famous, internet movies.

Woody has recently competed in the 2005 X-Zone series of events, and his results have been improving in each round. Every time he goes out on his board he tries to learn a new trick or two, so he just keeps on getting better and better.

Woody is also currently sponsored by kitemarket.com who provide his kites.
