My mother is a Southern Californian & my father is Argentinean. At the age of 10 months my parents moved to a tiny West Indian Island called Bequia, part of the St. Vincent and the grenadines chain. At the age of 8, my mother decided to move further on to the South American Caribbean Island known as “Isla Margarita” (Venezuela). I grew up in “Playa El Yaque”, a world re known windsurfing destination. I would say El Yaque was where I was born into windsurfing. I spend most of my time on Margarita and Maui for waves & all around sailing. I am really happy to have such a life working together with Mother Nature. I’ve been privileged to learn different languages, cultures and people around the world.
