Graham Howes joins North as International Team Rider!
A talented entrepreneur and fearless big air kiter, Graham is known for his relentless riding style which has led close friend and North Team Manager Nick Jacobsen to question his sanity at times. Graham is also the brainchild behind the infamous movement, Dirty Habits. He’s passionate about bringing extreme sports athletes who travel the world together, as well as taking extreme sports and day-to-day activities to the next level.
Mike Raper, Director of Brand says: “Graham is an extremely innovative and talented rider. He’s really committed to pushing the sport to its limits and we couldn’t be prouder to have him joining the international team.”
Graham’s first taste of kiteboarding came during a trip to Dubai, he was about to embark on an architectural degree at the time. This event changed the trajectory of his life and Graham spent the next five years travelling the world, finessing his skills and passing on his love for the sport through teaching others to kite, before he returned to South Africa.
Graham says “I feel very honored to be a part of North and such a strong and experienced team. From the moment I heard about the formation of this team and the individuals involved, I knew I wanted to be a part of it, and knew I would fit right in."
Graham is the first edition to a growing and strong team of international riders for North.
