“I feel like change is very important, and joining North felt like the right step. We share the stoke, and the products are top of the line. I’m excited for this new chapter and proud to be a part of the North family!” – Ozzie

Ozzie is renowned for his talent and his fearless approach to the water. Reflecting on a particularly memorable moment, Ozzie recounts, “The most intense jump I’ve experienced was with a 5-meter kite amidst 60-knot winds at my local spot, Maccassar. I jumped insanely high but wiped out and broke my shoulder. I couldn’t ride for three months!”

Drawing from the same creativity that fuels his secret talent for poetry, Ozzie shapes his unique approach to the sport. “I think my outlook on life inspires my style on the water. Sometimes it comes out in unexpected ways,” Ozzie adds. He is passionate about pushing the creative side of kiteboarding, exploring new possibilities, and sharing his vision.

“Change is very important, and joining North felt like the right step. Their partnership with Mystic creates a seamless transition with a team that’s already like family to me. We share the stoke, and the products are top-of-the-line. I’m excited for this new chapter and proud to be a part of the North family!”
