When did you start riding? And what was your motivation?

About 7 years ago, I was windsurfing a lot and one day I saw kiteboarding and took a lesson and this is the result.

Before becoming pro kiteboarder, what did you do before?

Like most of the people I was in school.hehe

A lot of pro kiteboarders ride with C-shape and you with the Slingshot RPM (Open C-kite), are you in love with this model?

For me, the RPM works really well, has a lot of depower, gives me the pop I need. So no complains so far on that. And I have the opportunity to work on the kite.
