Welcome. My name is Erik Stone and I was born in Minneapolis, MN. I'm a surfer and kiteboarder, and I've been teaching kiteboarding since 2002. I've spent some time in The United States, Egypt, Peru, The Cayman Islands, and I continue to travel around a bit. If you want to contact me, you can, through my personal website at, http://www.erikstone.info. If you think I should post more info about myself here on Wikipedia, let me know, or create a wiki on me so I can read what you have to say.
