Great start of a new cycle.

First of all I wish you all the best for 2013, for me 2012 was a real roller coster, as you might know I spend 6 month with a very annoying knee injury (Obvious) spending my time as a DJ in summer, filming and not doing much, but I actually don’t regret it, with this I have learned so much and I got all of my stuff sorted out together, now I feel more alive then ever and the only thing I wanna do is get back to the competition and kick some ass! (we will see how this goes….) Image

ImageLets do a little recap of what i’ve been up to lately:

After my second knee surgery in september I started my rehab, when i talk about rehab I mean a lot of gym, sweat and suffering but it all got well payed of, just after a !!!MONTH!!! my doc said I am ready to get back on the water so thats just what I did, but being as enthusiastic as I am my first session had to take place in Brazil, so just after 4 days after my doc said I would be ready I was off to Brazil with my good friend Alvaro Onieva, and yes I had an incredible trip, got all of my ticks back in the bag plus this time with boots and with even more control and power than ever before…

After 1 and a half month in Brazil it was time to go back to reality but this time only for a week, my next trip planned was taking place in Myanmar to visit my father with my beloved sister, this was a great opportunity to chill after the “stressed” trip we had in Brazil (More coming on that in my next post) and seeing my dad that I haven’t seen for more than a year. I brought all of my kite stuff with the chance that maybe there would be a little bit of wind, unfortunately it never came but I found my self surrounded by the beautiful culture of  Myanmar, so I decided to film a little Doc about it, the images turned out incredible! so stay on alert because soon I will be releasing some very cool movies and videos. Oh, and did I mention that my latest video “Drop It” won the Tricks & Chicks contest? this was the chocolate piece on cake for me  :P

Now I find my self at Singapore airport with surprisingly fast free internet, you might find that normal if you don’t travel much but for someone that travels very often like me this is kind of difficult to find on other airport.

Well I think I’ve said enough, from now on I will update my page more often so if you liked my blog post feel free to subscribe!

Peace and Happy new year!!!!!

PD: Here is a little preview on my work in Myanmar:Image
