Top 3 kitesurfing spots?
- My favourite spots are Brazil where I go every winter. Riding Taiba lagoon with all the other riders is very motivating and it helps you to push your riding.
- Sicily (Italy) is my favourite place because it’s close to my hometown and I can train as I like, there is a huge lagoon and wind almost everyday.
- “Daklha Seed spot”- Unluckily I’ve been there only once, but it was love at first sight.
Favourite gear setup?
I do love riding my Team series 142/43 and my 11m Vegas in 22/23 knots because I think this is the best condition to do bigger and to have the perfect slack on the lines.

I love listening every type of music, it depends from the vibe, but I mostly listen to rap - Reggae and Hip Hop music.
How and why did you start kiteboarding?
Everything started back in 2011 thanks to a good friend of mine. He used to tell me about kiteboarding adventures and they inspired me to want to learn. Unfortunately, it was wintertime and I was advised to wait because of the cold. Spring finally arrived and I was able to get started. Within a few months, I was landing many unhooked tricks and a year later, I won the Italian championship.
