Why STAR?: First introduced to the company in Cabarete, DR and then again in Cape Hatteras, North Carolina (USA) I instantly believed in the integrity of the Brand and the minds behind the company. I’ve always lent myself to supporting strong initiatives and STAR is building muscle fast. The pro team is dangerous with talent…this crew kites HARD and I want to associate myself with the best.
