I’m a very passionate kitesurfer with a heart for the water. I have spent my whole life kitesurfing. I’ve been lucky enough to compete in the world’s biggest tours and competitions and loved every minute.
I come from a very active kitesurfing family. My dad and my little sister also kitesurf. Our holidays and after school hours were always spent at the beach as a family.
I was spending the day at the beach when I was 8 and saw someone kitesurfing. I immediately said I wanted to do it as well. I had to wait a while until I was old enough to take lessons and understand the conditions, and eventually took lessons when I turned 10.
Kiteboarding makes me feel free and able to express myself. My escape from Reality! Travelling the world, being able to meet many amazing people along the way. I’ve really enjoined my time on the world tour as well and being able to compete in the Red Bull King of the air in 2013,2014 and 2015.
I now ride Peter Lynn because I love the fact that there is a genuine passion for kiting in all different disciplines, whether land or sea. It’s a brand aimed towards everyone who shares the same passion, and that’s something I want to be part of.
