My sport

Kitesurfing is a recently invented (1999) water sport, which started out as a form of surfing. Athletes are pulled by a sail driven by the wind, which they manouevre using a 'control bar' while standing on a board that skims across the surface of the water.

Freestyle is the most varied and spectacular of the various kitesurfing disciplines, guaranteeing plenty of action and extreme performance.

It is considered the original form of kitesurfing, and is the main event in most kitesurf competitions.

“The thing that struck me right from the start was the chance to control two major natural elements: the wind and the sea”.
