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.

«I chose this sport because there is something magical about it: it allows me to get closer to the natural elements».
