You have been kiting since 2007, do you have a favorite kitespot?
My homespot strand.

Which is your favourite board?
It is a 138 Airush Livewire.

Who or what inspires you?
Kiting lets me travel around the world, explore new places, new coultures and new people. It inspires me, cause there is so much freedom in the sport. The way you interact with nature and always see something different. I like the speed, adrenalin, learning new tricks and pushing myself!

If you had to pick two athletes, dead or alive, to go kite with. Who would they be?
Probably Travis Pastrana and Aaron Hadlow and go to Nitro City! So much stuff to do there.

Which is the best city on earth and why?
Cape Town. We have got nice waves, wind, weather and the people are very friendly. All around good vibes!

Do you have your own way of life? What do you want to achieve next?
I train as hard as possible for my kiting. I do exercises in the gym, do my stretching in the morning and try to maintain a healthy diet. My goals for this year and next year is to compete on the World Tour and place in the top 10 every time. I am also aiming to win the Junior World Championships.

Is there something more you want to tell us?
Work is the greatest thing in the world, so save some for tomorrow. Enjoy your day & trust in SWOX!
