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….)
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
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!!!!!
I finally got some time and internet here in isolated Ihla do Guajiru, I have been in Brazil for a month training and getting my level back.
These past days we moved up north to concentrate on a new movie together with Andy Jensen, the images are looking amazing, I can’t wait for all of you to see them.
While here in Brazil I edited some videos, check them out!
“Drop It” is a video for a online contest on riders match! please give your vote!!! only 3 days left!!!
“First Kite Contact” This was my first session in Brazil, no action on the video but there is a little interview.
Hope you enjoy it!
I haven’t been posting much lately, but now I am finally doing much better with my knee and to celebrate I booked my ticket to Brasil! so lots of action will be going on jeje
Here there is a nice interview published on the biggest freestyle website in spain, its in spanish but you can always use google translator
So here you go! Enjoy.

Flexifoil just released there new Proton! This kite really looks awesome and i would recommend this kite to all intermediate riders and even experienced ones that are looking for a fast kite, lots of de-power (good in strong winds) and most importantly its really good in high jumps! Check the Flexi press release for more info!! HERE
Flexifoil presents the Proton, a natural evolution from last year’s model. Aimed squarely at freerider and waveriders, the Proton offers easy relaunch, predictable flight, stability and quick turns, giving you everything you need to take on the waves or simply cruise across the flats with comfort.
An exceptional all-rounder that is suited to riders of every level, you can be sure that the stability, predictability and responsiveness that this kite offers will give the headstart you need to concentrate on those board skills, be it in the barrel of a wave or simply tacking those first few runs straight out of school.
Read on to find out more about why the Proton deserves a place in every quiver…
Was so happy to have my first PKRA of the season in Dakhla. It is my 4th time in the mindblowing dessert here and one of my favourite spots to kite. Just had finished 1 month of second trimester studies for one heavy day with all my exams, and was so looking forward to be focussed only on kiting and showing what I had mastered over the winter on the water.
Qualifications for the main event were going to be hard. First Heat we were with 3 riders, what is difficult for the judges, only winner passing, I had to borrow the 5,5m from Bruna, Nailed 8 tricks and to my surprise only got second place because my opponent was more power full . Now there were 21 riders left for the last 2 spots in the main event. I won 2 heats on a row, beating Spiesberger, Victor Hayes and Bournay; getting me in the finals of the qualifications. Again 3 riders. Ready for action. Second trick and bang……broke my chickenloop…..loosing time, loosing the heat and loosing my place in the main event.
Feeling Shit and Sad.
Its a hard reality check. But I will overcome and use my time here to get stronger; I need more power. Realizing that its only the Top 8 what is counting now and I have to enter to win against anybody.
The season is long, I am young, Time is on my side, I will be back. Stronger.
Bring it On

After an incredible 2 weeks in New Cal I´m back in Tarifa for the exams and studys. Not much wind here, but its good rest after kiting 2 weeks non stop in paradise! and travelling for almost 2 months around the world.
A Big Thank You to the PKRA organisation of 2010. There were many incredible and beautifull located events on all continents of the globe. Almost stressing to make it to them all.
The competition level is getting higher with many very good riders. It aint easy to win. Andy Yates and Gisela Pulido are the well deserved 2010 freestyle champs. !! Congrats to them all the others for riding hard!!
