Elite Team Riders

     The Elite Watersports team riders have been hand selected by owners Aaron and Vanessa McClearnon for each of the individual attributes they offer to the St. Pete kiteboarding community. Team riders come from different parts of the world but here at Elite we all believe the same motto "Teamwork makes the dream work"!
