When did you start kitesurfing  and what inspired you to do such a “different” sport?

My father started kitesurfing in 2008, and since then he always tried to make me share his passion on various holidays, but I only got on the board in 2011. I was only 14 so there wasn’t anything really inspiring about it, just a pastime.

Whenever there is wind! I usually do 2 sessions a week, but if there’s more wind then I go more often
