Kiting since summer 2000.
Started kitesurfing to fly...and still does it, pushing the limits of hooked-in riding.
Riding mainly kites in 16 and 18 sqm with a small 128x38 board. Weight: 93 kg.
Tried course racing, waves, unhooked, but got bored quickly due to the missing feeling of the flying. The progression of my hooked tricks keep me stoked and pushing to wherever it is possible.
Created many new tricks, e.g. the handle kick flips and barefoot slides with rotations.
