Applefield recently took a trip to the Panhandle
to meet with
his board sponsor Barrio Boards.
He got to choose 2 new shapes from Barrio and score a
photoshoot with Barrio's model.
He's been riding Barrio's boards
for a while now
and ripping it up with them. Barrio is definitely
taking notice, that's why they invited Kyle
up to the handle to party it down while hooking
Applefield up with 2 fresh shapes.
These are a few questions Gulfster
had for him
when he returned.
GULFSTER: How do you like Barrio
as your board sponsor?
KYLE: They're sick and you can tell he takes pride in
GULFSTER: So what two new shapes
did you get from Barrio?
KYLE: I got a 6'0" squash and a 6'2" for bigger
GULFSTER: How was the trip? Fun,
and how about the party?
KYLE: The trip was sick. I had fun watching Erich shaping
boards. The first night
we hit up a club and the next night we hung out with
the locals and partied down.
GULFSTER: What are your goals
with Barrio Boards, are they hooking you
up with more than just boards?
KYLE: My goals with them are to Help Barrio get a good
rep and get the word
out about Barrio Boards. I am on a trade in basis right now,
when one board gets a little used then I swap it out for another
How did you get connected with Barrio Boards?
I met Barrio at the Surf Shack when he was there promoting
his stuff. Barrio and his wife seemed pretty
cool and things just happedned from there.
What other sponsors do you have?
Of course Barrio Boards, you guys at Gulfster
have been a big help, and the
Surf Shack has been the biggest help and
have been giving me a lot of support. I really
have a lot of thanks for them.
Kyle is making it big in the Gulf surf
scene in not only WFL but the Panhandle He was ripping it up when we found
him and continues to improve.
He only deserves what
he gets for his great surfing ability, and soon
he will probably be too big for the
Gulf but we will always remember where
he came from.
