Jon Modica Podcast – Winner of the 2008 Triple S Surf

On June 23 Jon Modica was kind enough to sit down and talk with Todd and I. This is the first in a series of podcasts that we will have profiling many riders. In this cast Jon talks about his recent victory at the Triple S, where he started, what he is doing now, where he is going and, of course, riding strapless :D Unfortunately, his connection was a little rough at times and the audio is a bit fuzzy so I apologize in advance to all our listeners.

If you would like to listen to the Podcast in its entirety, and  without any editing please listen to the full version below:

You can also listen to Jon’s Podcast in three parts as outlined below:

  • Part 1- Jon talks about his background, influences, inspiration and his style:

  • Part 2 – Jon talks about competing and winning the Triple S, his gear of choice, and riding strapped vs. strapless:

  • Part 3 – Jon discusses what his future plans are, his role with www.losethestraps.com, his life as a professional kiteboarder and media exposure:
