Description: Laid back, keen to learn, keen to help others, having a blast !

Kitesurfing Style: Lots of new school and some old school thrown in when the wind is too mad to unhook even on your smallest kite...

Favourite Moves: Backmobes, Blind Judge 5's, Shify 3's & 5's and anything with kiteloops.

Riding Tips: Learn to crash - Sam Light told me that and it works! Trust your leash. Go for everything, push yourself hard all the time. Get out on the water as much as you can and don't let the cold in the UK put you off, just get on the water !!
