Kitesurfing means that you’re literally hooked right from the start! It happened to me when I first launched a kite and hit the water in 2001. And it has been happening to all my students who I have been teaching this awesome sport from the time I started instructing in 2014 for KR.

He’s passion for the sport and commitment to time on the water every windy afternoon has seen him progress quite quickly and favorite riding style is big air and jumping over whatever obsticale he can see. If you see him out and about don’t be shy if you have any questions or want tips on how to improve.
He has been living in Australia since 2011 and became hooked and addicted when he first got his lessons with Kite Republic in 2014. His main focus is megalooping and boosting in strong wind. He has ridden different brands over the years and recently jumped on board with Core kiteboarding which took his skills up to the next level.
