How did you get into kiteboarding?

From a young age I’ve always loved everything about the ocean. My dad was always into water sports and after getting me into surfing when I was 5, I fell in love with everything around surfing. He was actually one of the first people to get into kitesurfing in Noosa so once I was old enough, naturally I picked it up. It was the perfect addition to surfing and with that I had something to do in all conditions. From then on I was hooked! 

What motivated you to become a professional athlete?

Growing up, I always knew I wanted to make kitesurfing my career. I was never a city person and always wanted to do something based around the ocean so this was the perfect fit! It was a lot of hard work but I’m incredibly happy to be where I am today!

What is #LiveFreeRideFree for you?

It's all about having fun and not taking kiting to seriously. Mix it up, try different disciplines and most importantly, make sure you’re having fun on the water. Thats what kitesurfing is all about! 

Your motto?

Don’t be afraid to mix it up and try new things.
