Pat "Enrique" Taylor


Pat is a guy that has done it all. It all started when he was just a wee teenager and he would spend hours talking with the boardsports staff at the old location. One day the crew was so sick of him wasting their time he was handed a broom and an offer to work at the shop. Working in the summer and going to school for the rest of the year he quickly established himself in the warehouse and as an instructor. After college he worked as an engineer, but now he is back at the shop as a focal point in the warehouse. Now that he is back to drinking... I mean kiting full time he has become quite a menace on the water.

Master of efoils, kiteloops, and post-session brews he is a wonderful example of a Mackite employee! 

P.S. If you are single lady that loves kiting feel free to give us a call and ask for Pat he would love to chat with you!
