I can answer nearly any question about kiteboarding on the water, snow, or dirt. Specific questions or recommendations about proprietary kitesurfing gear can more efficiently be answered on the manufacturer's websites.

Experience in the area

I've taught kitesurfing full time for 9 years and 13 years total. I competed in placed top 4 in several National and International kiteboarding competitions, and was a sponsored rider for 4 years. I currently teach kiteboarding and other watersports in Mui Ne, Vietnam.
