2 time Super X world champion, 2004 & 2005

My motivation and desire come from my upbringing. I have always been one to want to be the best. I don’t like to lose- not many people do but I really hate it. I may not show it, but inside of me, I’m on fire. This drives me to sail harder, longer and go bigger than anyone else. I have always been the tough guy to go for it and suffer the consequences later- I have injured myself a few times but never give up.
I have worked hard to get where I am and have enjoyed every moment of it. Since winning the Freestyle Title in 2002, I have learned what it takes to be a champion both on and off the water. After 13 years of hammering away at professional windsurfing, I have achieved goals that I have always dreamed about.
After winning the 2004 PWA SUPER X title, my focus and motivation continues to be on wavesailing and Super X competition. I will also continue touring the world doing travel stories and promoting one of the best sports on the planet!
