YOUR HOBBIES ASIDE KITEBOARDING?

Football, golf, gardening

WHAT DO YOU DO ON A DAY WITHOUT WIND? 

 I like to spend time in schools teaching young people about the power of the wind. Kitesurfing is so engaging and it can inspire children in so many ways.

WHAT STYLE OF MUSIC ARE YOU INTERESTED IN? 

House Music.

HOW AND WHY DID YOU START KITEBOARDING? 

 I started windsurfing around 16 years old as my parents house is on the beach on the south of England. With my background in diving boards I was drawn to the new sport of kitesurfing when I saw the height they were jumping. it looked like the perfect sport for me.

WHY ARE YOU RIDING FOR DUOTONE?

Of course I love the equipment - it has helped me develop hugely as a rider but the main reason is that I feel Duotone believe in me. With the teams support I have been able to find my strengths as a professional athlete. Whether that’s riding in the big storms, working with children, coaching or commentating, being part of Duotone since 2015 has shaped who I have become today.

WHAT IS YOUR MAIN GOAL FOR THE FUTURE?

Continue to inspire people to start kitesurfing.

WHAT WOULD HAVE BEEN YOUR JOB IF YOU WOULDN´T BE A PRO KITEBOARDER? 

 Greenkeeper on a golf course, their job looks chilled.

WHAT´S YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD? 

 I’m English so it has to be our countries favourite food - curry!

WHAT DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO SAY?

It is how you are in the real world that really matters, not the digital one.
