Luis Alberto Cruz
A couple of years ago it all started when I saw some friends kiteboarding at kite beach Cabarete. They let me try as well and I loved it right away. After many training sessions I joined my first local competition. At the beginning I lost but after a while this changed and I started to win events as well. It’s difficult to explain what kitesurfing does to me. It makes me feel relaxed and super happy. It’s just an awesome feeling. The craziest tricks I do are 4 handle passes and I like jumping over boats and trees.
Besides kitesurfing I like to play baseball, golf, pool and I like to run. I also like to eat a lot and spend time with my family and friends. I have three kids and I live together with my mom. We have a great relationship and we help each other in every way we can.
At the Kitesurf Worldcup in Fehmarn I met the people from Peter Lynn Kiteboarding. The people from the company are very nice and make me feel like I belong to a family. Talking to them is way different than talking to others because they are upfront, which made me trust them right away. And I like the Escape a lot as well. It’s is fast, powerful, very well designed and it fits my riding style perfectly. My dream goal now is to participate in the Kite World Tour and be among the best as well as to inspire others to get out on the water.
