Kitesurfing Style: Make your own mind up?
Top Places to Ride: West Shore, Llandudno, North Wales - replicates Kite Beach on Maui, The lagoons up and down the coast from Combuco, Brazil - when they are quiet, Jeri, Brazil - perfect little 2ft kickers and the most amazing sand dune back drop, sweet, Squamish Spit, BC, Canada - butter flat on the inside of the spit and I long to go back there now I can actually ride and make the most of it, Oukaimeden, High Atlas Mountains, Morocco - for somewhere completely insane to Snowkite!
Favourite Moves: Whatever I have just learnt?
Riding Tips: 'While one person hesitates because they feel inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becomes superior'? Henri C Link.
In other words, just go for everything and if you don't land the trick, or win the competition, for sure you learnt something from it!
