Interview

How did you get into Kiting?
When I was 11 years old I got into kiteboarding; I met Robby Naish when I was 12 and that’s when I knew I wanted to become a pro kiteboarder. So, I spend all my time training and finding out how I could travel the world just like Robby.

What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
Food! I eat quite a lot! You burn a lot being on the water so much.

 What’s in your backpack when traveling?
My Bose noise canceling headphones…can’t travel without them.

Favorite Movie?
Snatch and Dumb and Dumber. Those movies are just too funny.

Top five songs on your latest playlist?
Anything that has a bit of a reggae beat; that always really gets me in the mood.

Favorite post session beverage?
Sparkling water. I’m addicted to it. I even bought a sparkling making machine for my house.

Favorite post session food?
A home made meal is always best.

You’re planning your dream trip, where are you going and who’s coming with?
I would love to do a surf/kite trip to Fiji. It’s still very high on my list and can’t wait to go there! I would bring 5 of my best friends. One day it will happen, I’m sure!

Favorite thing to do when not you’re not kiting?
Wow, thats a good question. Probably getting stoked on checking the conditions for the next swell or wind.

What, in your opinion, has been your greatest accomplishment?
That I’ve been enjoying this sport since the day I started. I thought after a couple of years I will lose interest, but 18 years later I still get so stoked every time I hit the water.

What’s your favorite quote or saying?
Enjoy what you do cause you only live once.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?
That I could fly endlessly.
