Hard to put a finger on just one as an athlete....But actually working with the youth and seeing so many World Champions and good people at the DTK has been super rewarding.

YOUR HOBBIES ASIDE KITEBOARDING?

Surf, Skate, Bike, Foil etc.

WHAT DO YOU DO ON A DAY WITHOUT WIND?

Surf + work and spend some time with my favourite people.

WHAT STYLE OF MUSIC ARE YOU INTERESTED IN?

Depends on the setting. Depends on the mood.

HOW AND WHY DID YOU START KITEBOARDING? 

I started back home in Canada when I noticed some guys flying around a beach close to where I grew up. When I looked into it, I saw the trend was Wakestyle and a lot of people were riding with boots. Since I was already wakeboarding and snowboarding a lot, it all seemed to make sense and it come together pretty naturally!

WHY ARE YOU RIDING FOR DUOTONE?

The brand has so much to offer, I always have the right tool for the job :)

WHAT IS YOUR MAIN GOAL FOR THE FUTURE?

Stay fit and healthy as long a humanly possible! Keep doing what you love and trying to have the most fun possible on and off the water!

WHAT TRAINING DO YOU DO TO STAY FIT? 

I do a lot of alternative training off the water. Balance, coordination, mobility, flexibility. Discovering new ways of moving the body. Mostly stuff with my own body weight. I have a trainer that helps me with this.

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

Most likely an Engineer. I had just finished my studies before | turned "pro". These days people call me TM though...

WHAT´S YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD? 

Sushi or home made burgers!

WHAT DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO SAY?

Keep smiling, it's contagious!
