the story

I've always been drawn to the water, there was something about it that makes me feel alive. So I started surfing, wakeboarding, stand up paddleboarding and finally kitesurfing.

My dad was an avid windsurfer and he pushed me into the sport when I was 11 years old. Since day 1 I've been hooked and never looked back again.


It was the feeling of freedom, being surrounded by mother nature pure power and embracing the elements that set me alive. 

"So My passion, became my life, and my life, became my dream" 

At 13 years old, I started competing internationally. I managed to become Vice junior world champion at the age of 15year and that was my turning point to a professional athlete. 

This sport has provided me with so much and I can not be more grateful for everybody that has helped me get to where I am today. 

So if I can give you any advice it would be find an outlet, get lost in it and it will show you the way.
