View full Biography

Since I am born I travelled together with my family to different windsurf- and kitesurf spots in Europe. Especially with my dad I was always on tour to find windy places. I started with windsurfing and 2002 I made the step to kitesurfing. First I competed in freestyle and when the race discipline came up I was in my element. 2013 I became „Formula Race World Champion”, which was my biggest success till now. In the past two years I really got in to foiling and I am super happy to be now in the Levitaz-Family.
