About


In Swedish Patrick's middle name, Fisk, means fish. He was born to parents that loved to surf, windsurf, and recreate in the ocean, Patrick has grown up at the beach.

Patrick's father, Rob Rebstock was attacked by a Great White Shark in 1975 off of Pt. Conception, the first attack since the JAWS movie had hit the theaters earlier that summer. Surviving the attack he got back in the water as soon as his stitches were out, opting to study for law school while surfing on the North Shore of Oahu.

Patrick grew up with a great passion and respect for the ocean with Rob Rebstock as his hero guiding his journey. Rob's best friend who he had taught how to surf, Bob Mcknight Founder and CEO of Quiksilver, became Patrick's first sponsor at 15 years of age, grooming him to be a professional athlete.

Patagonia ambassador Reo Stevens gives us an in depth look into making the most out of marginal conditions. Kitesurfing is not a replacement for surfing, simply an extension of it; the conditions for one are only ideal when they are not for the other. By using the kite as a means to harness one of surfing's imperfections, surfers can increase their water time and maximize their wave count. Other riders include Keahi De Aboitiz, Ian Alldredge and Patrick Rebstock.
