There are no such things as mistakes only lessons that make you the best you can be, regret nothing and you will have the potential to become limitless.

One sentence about the products that you are using
When you are racing at the front of the fleet on the absolute edge you need the absolute pinnacle of performance but you also need to have complete faith in your gear, F-ONE delivers both.

How did you get into kiteboarding?
I started kiting in 2012 when kitesurfing was first put in the Olympics as before I was an aspiring Olympic windsurfer, after that I was completely hooked and started racing professionally in 2015.

What do you do before getting in the water?
I always completely submerge myself in the water before I do a session no matter how cold it is, it allows me to fully focus and push the limits as soon as I step on the board.

Tell us about your best kiting memory:
During a long distance race in Mexico we were joined dolphins, flying fish, a Sea Turtle and jumping stingrays it was an unbelievable experience!

Your worst wipeout?
Whilst learning to gybe my first race foil I messed up the down loop, got thrown off and ripped the cartilage off my hip joint when my foot didn’t come out of the strap.

Who you would like to say thank you to?
My Parents and Family for never failing to believe in me and everyone along my journey who enabled me to turn my childhood dreams into my current reality.
