How long have you been practicing kitesurf for?

"For me it is important to live here and now, I am not a big planner and I like to be able to just go where life leads me"

 

What’s your favorite spot and why? 
I have been to a lot of kite spots in the world and our place in Indonesia is by far my favourite place to ride waves. The long left wave is just in front of our house and it is so perfect that it makes it so easy! The wind is also perfect side-shore, so you can really surf the wave with out feeling the pull of the kite. An amazing feeling!

Your results: 
I have always loved traveling and getting to know new places and to ride new spots, so from the beginning I prefered to make travel stories and document my kite experience through that rather than doing contests. And I have been so lucky to always have sponsors that suported me in my choices.

If you had to reincarnate, what would that be into?
A dog with super cool owners...

What is your favorite dish? 
That changes all the time, but I always like a good Italian pizza.

What is your life philosophy?
For me it is important to live here and now, I am not a big planner and I like to be able to just go where life leads me. You never know what will happen anyway, so I believe in chilling out and do what I love doing as often as possible.
