The legendary Ronny Finsaas (the kiting god) is an expert in kite polar travel. When not involved in an expedition, or cooking at the Finse 1222 hotel, he can usualy be found outside teaching ski-sailing or doing ski-sail expeditions around Finse. Being a member of the local rescue team, he also has wide experience of glacier rescue.

Ronny has been pushing the limits of what you can do with a ski sail. He has travelled at 50mph pulling a sledge, sailing in the dark a distance of 30 miles, within 2 hrs, using headlamp and GPS.
