Meet Sam, the Appletree rep for North America! Sam started Kiting and Foiling in 2016 in what he considers to be his other hometown of Martha’s Vineyard, MA. Nowadays Hood River is his playground, and those downwind rides he gets there are pure envy-inducing magic! Always seeking to top his last experience, Sam is driven by the next best session ever.

Fun fact, Sam sticks his tongue out whenever he is concentrating, which happens a lot when foiling, so sometimes he ends up with a sunburnt tongue! However, he does not recommend sunburning your tongue. Sam is pretty obsessive over hobbies and one week it maybe one thing then the next another, but after watersports the three that get his attention the most are Golf, Mountain Biking and Hockey.

Interested in becoming an Appletree dealer, shoot Sam an email.
