Interview

How did you get into Kiting?

When I was 11 years old I got into kiteboarding and when I met Robby Naish for the first time when I was 12 and I knew I wanted to become a pro kiteboarder. So I spent 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! hahah 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 headphone. Can’t travel without them.

Favorite Movie?

Snatch and Dumb and dumber. 

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 addict 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 with 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 the sport since the day I started. I thought after a couple of years I will lose interest. Even 18 years later I get so stoked every time I hit the water.

What’s your favorite quote or saying?

Enjoy what you do cause you only live ones.

If you had a superpower, what would it be?

That I could fly endlessly.
