  1. Laurel,

    Is one of the most uncompromising, full of character and driven persons you will ever meet. She is loaded with the right stuff and is a human dynamo !
    Bright, charismatic, so full of life and grace she is wonderfully beautiful both inside and out.

    To watch Laurel kite on the waters in the Gulf Of Mexico is truly amazing and captivating, she does it so effortlessly it’s poetry in motion.

    Did l say she can kayak, to watch Laurel paddle a kayak is an event. Her beautiful long arms stretch out over the water with such grace and in light and effortless motion propelling the kayak forward, it’s fantastic to watch.

    Laurel is truly a very special lady and we are blessed to have this world class kite surfer here in Southwest Florida.

    If you are ever at Englewood beach on a light breezy day you can see Laurel do her magic carpet ride on the blue Gulf waters. Be ready to entertained and mesmerized
    by this beautiful lady.
