What a fun weekend! After missing the one and only wave event of the year due to a rib injury coming back in 2nd for strapless freestyle was great! I also rode a funny rectangular thing with straps and got 3rd!

Professional kiteboarder based in Cape Town, South Africa. Sponsored by Liquid Force, WMFG, AppleTree
I began Kitesurfing in 2006, 6 years after I moved to Cape Town, I was taught to kite
On blouberg beach front by cabrinha kiteboarding and after getting up and ridding all I wanted to do was become pro. This dream became a reality in 2011 when I signed my first international contract with Roberto Ricci Designs shortly I after in 2012 I was on tour competing on the elite tour of 24 rider fighting for the world title unfortunately I ended up 5th but I was beyond happy! Since then I have pushed my focus more into the RND I do a lot of board and kite testing and that is where I am hoping to push my career LiquidForce is making this all possible giving me options I have only ever dreamed of!
