How did you get into Kiting?
When I was a kid, my father was a windsurfer and he taught me. I first started windsurfing and some years later I learned to kitesurf and since then this sport became the center of my daily life.

You’re planning your dream trip, where are you going and who’s coming with?
My dream trip is going to Hawaii, because of the environment, waves, wind, and biking… There you have all the perfect conditions for all sports. When I was really young I saw films and videos from there and I dreamed that one day I will go there and do them. I want my girlfriends to come with me because we share the love for all the sports we practice together.
Favorite thing to do when not you’re not kiting, SUPing or windsurfing?
Cycling is my another love. Now I have my own company, ‘’Ebike Spain’’, and I work for it with dedication.
What, in your opinion, has been your greatest accomplishment?
For me, it is really satisfying and makes me happy that every day I am able to dedicate myself professionally to my greatest passion.
What’s your favorite quote or saying?
‘’Living without thinking is like shooting without aiming.’’
If you had a superpower, what would it be?
It has always caught my attention ‘’to fly’’: the physical forces and the aerodynamic which make a plane to fly, the movement in a paragliding, the maneuver with a kite… For that, if a had a superpower, I would choose to fly like a bird.
