Goodbye Phillip Nelson

From Goodbye Phillip Nelson

Our local kiteboarding community has just recently suffered a huge loss.
Long-time kiteboarder and friend Phillip Nelson has passed away after a tough battle with cancer. Travis and I met Phillip in 2007 at XL Kites in Ft. Walton Beach. He taught us our very first kiteboarding lesson which we’ll never forget. We’ll always remember Phil for his big hugs and handshakes, delicious cook outs, and his warm and welcoming attitude at the beach. Phillip is leaving big shoes to fill and things just aren’t going to be the same without him. We’re going to miss you Phillip Nelson!
