Debut: 2006
1st PWA event Fuerteventura Slalom 2006. Placed 6th.

I've been windswurfing since i was 8. started competing in olympic class when i was 11. I was at the spanish olympic team for few years and won some nationals, while competing at the same time in formula (i won 7 times the national fw).

at 19 year old, i dicovered funboard and since then, i started traveling and waveriding around the world, got sponsor from gun sails. i begun making some slalom after an injure and then i got motivated for competing, since then i have won all the national slalom events (and waves) and now i try to do the most internatinal events that i can afford.

a big part of my career is also making the most coverage as i can (in different countries), focusing on helping my sponsors and my image, of course, but the main reason is to try to make this sport bigger and more popular, as i think it is has a potencial atractive that has not been yet known out of our windsurfing/watersports world (last years i am getting a very big coverage already :D , my last video: )
