Interview

Top 3 favourite kitesurfing spots?
1. Worthing UK - my hometown. No such thing as a wind season, blows all year round and some of the most intense strong wind conditions I have experienced on earth.
2. Cape Town - my second home. Port Tack riding at it’s best. I love the variety and the way of life out there.
3. Squamish Canada. Beautiful scenery and nature / Such a cool community and the most consistent wind stats I have ever experienced.

Favourite gear set up?

My Favourite set up at this moment has to be the 8m Vegas, wakestyle bar (22m) and Gambler board with 3.5cm fins. I just love the way the kite loops and how responsive it is when the wind picks up.

Favourite music Top 3?

Phil Collins
The Klaxons
Sandeep

Cat or dog?

Cats all day. Independent, smart and never poo in your own garden.

Champaign for the celebration and water for hydration.

Beach. There is nothing worse then always having a long drive to Kitesurf.
