What is your favorite trick?
How did you get into kiteboarding?
My parents were windsurfers in Hood River so I spent a lot of time watching them as a kid, when kitesurfing starting to emerge as a sport in Hood River I began begging my parents for lessons. Once I broke 100lbs and the gear got safer, my parents finally signed me up for a lesson when I was 12.
What motivated you to become a professional athlete?
Seeing all of the amazing places pro athletes got to travel to motivated me to want to chase that dream of the ultimate lifestyle.
What is #LiveFreeRideFree for you?
It's a lifestyle and mindset to think outside of the box of the norms of society and to chase whatever gives you the sense of freedom. It's much easier said than done, but there is no denying the simple act of kitesurfing gives you an amazing feeling of freedom.
