One sentence about the products that you are using
My gear suits my riding perfectly, I know how it works and it got everything I could wish for. The Slice 5’3 is my go to board for strapless freestyle and small waves : the amazing pop and the lightweight are allowing me to jump high, even in the toughest conditions. The Bandit is also my go to kite : I can do some big strapless kite loop, triple front roll or shred the waves : the Bandit knows how to do it all.
How did you get into kiteboarding?
I started kiteboarding in Brazil when I was 12 yo, I was so Motivated ! Since this time, I’ve been kiting most of the days of my life.
What do you do before getting in the water?
I don’t have much of a ritual but I like to listen to music when I’m gearing up. Then, I just wax my board, put my harnest and shred !
Tell us about your best kiting memory
It’s hard to choose only one memory : most of the trips I went to I’ll remember it my whole life, and I think that each and every session I had with good friends and strong wind are part of my best memories.
Your worst wipeout?
I already had a few bad wipeouts but the one that I really remember was in Ponta Preta a few years ago. It was my first time on this wave and it went ok, but after 2 hours the waves went from 2 meters to 4 meters and I got totally smashed on the rocks and ended up with the feet full of sea urchins. But of course, the next day the waves were still pumping there and I went full on again.
Who you would like to say thank you to?
Well, I think I could say thank you to my parents. They moved to Brazil when I was really young and without this, I might have never started kiteboarding.
