Kitesurfing (mostly foiling and strapless waves surfing), surfing, snowboarding and trekking when no wind.

I learned here in Tarifa, strong off-shore levante wind, was tricky at first but the feeling was nice!!! I keep learning and improving every time I sail ;)

My hand made "Kitchenfoilstarifa" 5'0 wingboard and a medium aspect foil 1300cm2 with small stabiliser. Riding an amazing Ozone wasp 4m most of the time.

Riding waves down wind in Bolonia (south of Spain) in front of the huge sand dune and all the Romans ruins on the beach!!!
