Can you tell us a bit more about your passion for kitesurfing?
Kiteboarding guides my whole life. It's more than a passion, it's a lifestyle. It allows me to spend a lot of time in the water (I really need to), see new places, discover different cultures and meet new friends.
You just won the lottery, what would you do first?
I will book Namotu Resort in Fiji for myself and a bunch of friends for a month and ride big waves.
What’s the most amazing thing you’ve experienced?
Riding in front of the Statue of Liberty in New York city.
What are you doing during a day without wind?
I go to the movies or I chill on my couch, watching Netflix!
