Your hobbies aside kiteboarding?

Photography, social media, sport in general

What do you do on a day without wind?

Work! Or go to the gym, chill. Mainly things I don't have time to do when it is windy so when it's windy I can kite as much as possible.

What style of music are you interested in?

I literraly like all kinds of music, I have like 20 spotify lists :-)

How and why did you start kiteboarding?

I was an athlete before, I was doing 100 and 400m hurdless! I was quite good, starting to earn money with the races but I got injured. I had to get a surgery on my left knee.
I never made it back to the track. Kitesurfing appeared in my life a bit because of coincidence. 2010, I was working in the kiteboarding world championships that gets celebrated every year at fuerteventura and one of the riders took me in his back "Monkey style". I completely fell in love with the feeling.
It took me a year until she found out how to manage some lessons since we all know kiteboarding is and can be very expensive: I  traded kitesurfing lessons for photos (since I was quite into photography back then). And, after this you could only find me on the water.

Why are you riding for Duotone?

Because is the best brand in the market and I totally love my gear. They help me push my level and my boundaries sky rocket!

What is your main goal for the future?

Keep on doing what I do right now.

What training do you do to stay fit?

It depends a lot on what sport I am training for (kite or wake). But mainly I try to do a strong winter training so I can spend a lot of time in the water in summer and crush it in competitions.

What would have been your job if you wouldn´t be a pro kiteboarder?

Well, probably what I am already doing besides kiteboarding: social media for companies.

What´s your favourite food?

I love all kinds of food, I was born hungry.

What did you always want to say?

Nothing I have not already said haha.
