At the age of 10 I started with windsurfing, and reached a high level of riding under the guidance
of legend Josh Angulo. But it was Mr Nacho, a tourist from Tarifa who came to Sal for a holiday that
introduced me to kitesurfing. He let me try his kite and I immediately fell in love with the sport.
At the age of 16 I quit windsurfing to fully focus on kitesurfing. Since then, I have been kitesurfing
every day that I could.
When I am kiting I feel something indescribable; speed, adrenaline and fun.
For many years I have been focussing on the freestyle discipline but the last years you can find me more and more riding strapless in the waves of Ponta Preta. Since 2013 I opened my very own kiteschool 100 Feet kite school on Sal. The season runs from October till the end of April, after that we go to our school in Porto Kaleo Calabria in Italy from June till September.
Ponta Preta is a legendary spot and one of the reasons to invite the marketing team of Peter Lynn kiteboarding to capture the Swell in all its glory.
Check out the videos Super Sunday, Swell and Kitesurfing Cabo Verde to see what I am talking about.
Cabo Verde,… no stress…
