Interview

Top 3 favourite kitesurfing spots?
- Australia, because it has everything, wind, waves and flat water and it’s a pretty cool place just to hang out with mates. Every year there is a great kite scene there!
- Dominican republic, its definitely one of the best spots to ride and escape from everything else. The local life there is awesome and in such a small area there are some of the best Kiteboarding spots for all conditions…
- Hawaii, Its not the best place to kite and the options on the spots are pretty limited but there is a certain magic about kite beach on Maui. Its strong wind and hard conditions but if you can ride there, then everywhere else is easy!

Favourite gear set up?
I ride a lot of different gear all year round, testing some new things and getting it right for how I want to ride, but my main set up is:
North Vegas 7/9/10/12m kites
North Team series Board, 135 or 140 proto with Ronix boots (finless)
25m lines, none of this short line stuff…

Cat or dog?
Cat, they are independent and can look after themselves.

Vegetables or Pizza/Burger?
Vegetables…too many burgers makes them bad!

Girls or boys ;-)?

Car or bike?
