What is your favorite trick?
It depends on the conditions! I love doing a good backmobe in freestyle. If it's strong wind, a kiteloop late backroll feels pretty niceI
How did you get into kiteboarding?
My Dad, Peter Whiteley was the first kitesurfer in the north-west of England. He taught me to Kitesurf!
What motivated you to become a professional athlete?
My passion for Kitesurfing. This might sound a bit crazy but I've never actually tried to be a professional athlete. I just had so much passion and drive for the sport and things just snowballed from there. I feel so very grateful to call kitesurfing my job.
What is #LiveFreeRideFree for you?
A huge sense of freedom that Kitesurfing brings. There's something special about just being you with your kite in the middle of the ocean.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
