Since I started Kiteboarding in 2000 my life has embarked on a wild and unique ride, inspired by my passion for the extreme, my love for the ocean and powered by the wind. Kiteboarding has taken me around the world more times than I can count and given me opportunities that I couldn't have dreamed of. Starting by competing in the UK, I progressed onto the world tour and competed full-time for four years, discovering a passion for videography I have since moved on to blend competition and unique style into movie projects that have changed how Kiteboarding is seen today.
