Source of inspiration, the passion for watersport runs in the Marcela’s family.
The idea of travelling to kite is so fascinating to Marcela that competition turned out to be just an excuse to spend her life on the road in search of wind and waves. She likes wild and simple things.
For her, the sea and the ocean feel like home, it is a place where you feel comfortable, free and complete.
I grew up watching my parents windsurfing. Windy places are familiar to me since I was a little kid. When I was 13 my dad and grandpa teach me how to kite and since that I knew that I could do this my whole life. Kitesurf to me is a way to push my limits, challenge myself and at the same time my way to relax.
I would buy a sail boat and travel the world searching for the best conditions to surf and kitesurf and learning about different cultures.
