It has been pretty busy for me since the end of summer, lately i have worked a lot on film production and traveling around working on that, after two month of making videos for other people i decided it was time to escape winter and train hard for next season, what a better place then Brazil to finish the year properly… It has been 5 days of good riding and its incredible how there is always wind! Got some new tricks in my bag and can’t wait to show them to all of you, still got 3 more weeks to go so looking ford to come back full of images and work on a new movie.
In the other hand KiteWorld just came out with there new issue and we (Children Of Revolution) are in it! so make sure you grab one in your favorite kite store.
Now gonna sleep and can’t wait to hit the lagoon tomorrow!
The Red Bull Batalla de Trafalgar was a great succes, all the riders like Aaron Hadlow, Tom Court, Alvaro Onieva, Mallory de la Villemarqué, Victor Hays, Marie Switala, Sam Light, Alex Pastor, Gisela Pulido and many more enjoyed the different format, it was great fun to compete in this comp, we all had some great fun pushing our riding! the frenchies arrived in second place, i had some great heats in the battle, i hope i can keep it up for the next comp!
This week I will be attending to an Red Bull event called the red bull trafalgar battle, the story behind this is that in 1805 there was a marine battle, France and Spain against the british. The British took the victory.
These event recreates the history of the battle and it gives us a chance to win it. I will be on the French side of the Battle so if you want your country to win, help us and join the battle on the website! It only takes a few minutes and you get a chance to win some prizes! Aide-nous a vaincre!
So after a sick trip in Fuerteventura after the comp with Alex,Tom,Sam, aaron and the Kite Launcher i decided to make a little video of a session i had, we didn’t film much on the trip because we focused more on having some good times on the water. Thanks for the awesome week! Njoy.

Once again I have been a full week waiting for wind to finally compete with flaky conditions and not been able to show, what I have been training for. In the end it does not matter. I am not good enough YET to fight for the podium places in the PKRA and I am not yet strong enough to enter the protected and rewarding PKRA Top 8. That are the ONLY places that are counting.
So, I am taking a break from competing for the remaining of this season. Focussing on learning new tricks in constant conditions, and adding the needed 5’s or even 7’s on the tricks I know. Will make some special movies featuring my sponsor materials and services and to give you all a preview of my progress.
I will be back next season to fight for what really counts.
Masmovil has been helping me since I started. They have the guts to offer bottom price high quality mobile communication in Spain. Made this movie for them. It means: when things are cheap we dont realize, Enjoy 🙂
Here it is! Get up is finally online, thanks to all for helping and a special thanks to kitaddict,masmovil,hadlow,flexifoil,prolimit and of course progression for being there and filming all my action (not the best but…) Enjoy!
After a long year of travelling i finally had the opportunity of staying at home and think about other stuff. Then the progression crew came down and i filmed with them, so thanks a lot to progression for giving me some sick images!
