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!!!!!
Just came back from the Philippines and there is so much to say about it, here is a little sneak peak & the rest you will see in the videos coming soon:
So after a trip in Fuerteventura my mate Thomas Paris told me i should book my ticket to the Philippines and thats what I did, after a stressful 4 days organizing my trip I finally arrived. I didn’t really know what to expect but as soon as I arrived in Boracay things started to change. Me and the Children of the Revolution participated at the funboard cup, it was really fun and i ended up 3rd in Freestyle.
After the comp, the COR crew and Normeth (she organized everything for us in the Philippines) had a talk and we decided to escape the party and people in Boracay and focus on the video production we had planned to do, so we went to Union Bay were we found a perfect flat water location, we decided to do a heli shot there and it turned out pretty good!
After 3 days hitting kickers, kiting all day long and enjoying the spot we traveled to Sabang because Thomas definitely wanted me to check the spot out and he told me we would surf and kite all day in a spot were no one has ever kited before, so 3 days after union bay we arrived in Sabang, it was a very local little village in the region of Vigan, we were staying in a huge house just meters of a perfect breaking wave, i was amazed by this wonderful place! We filmed, surf, kite for 11 days and then moved to Cagayan Valley, the Senator sponsored us the stay there (5 star hotel, private Casino, room service 24h a day, etc) they wanted us to check a spot that never no one kited and by our surprise it was perfect!
All the trip was captured on video, we got 500gb of stunning images so stay tuned cause this year you will see lots of the Philippines around the internet!
I really want to Thank all my sponsors, especially Másmovil, Kitaddict, Prolimit for making this trip possible, Normeth for organizing everything, Theresa and of cours all the Children Of the revolution for this awesome time, I’m glad to be part of this 😉
I did some screen grabs of some of the images that resume what i said in this post, check the slide show.
