View full Biography

My dad is a kite designer that s why I learned how to kite when I was very young. And I still can not stop doing this amazing sport!

When I was 10 I was sailing with a small boat called “Optimist” and in winter I did snowkiting. Then at the age of 14 I started kiteboarding . First I ride raceboard and in 2015 I switched to foil. I love this sport and the feelings you get from the wind, from the sea, from the wind! I really hope more people will do it in the future!

Currently I study at the university and music school. Most of my time I devote to kiting :)
