I started kitesurfing around 1997 after seeing footage of guy in Hawaii and realizing the potential here in Jersey. I was instantly hooked and one of the first people to introduce Kitesurfing into the Island, starting on a 2 line Wipika and an old surfboard with footstraps screwed to it. Since then I’ve traveled to amazing Kitesurfing spots around the globe such as, South Africa, Vietnam, the Carribbean, the Canaries, Australia and many more but still believe Jersey is one of the best hidden gems to live in and out of the ocean.
