I grew up spending my summers in the small sailing town of Mantoloking , New Jersey. I raced Optimists and eventually Lasers every summer, but I was always eager to get off the sailboat and run up to the ocean to go surfing. Sailing was too slow for me. I spend some time windsurfing before eventually getting on a kite board. After riding strapless surfboard for a few years, I was ready for something different and more demanding. I wanted to compete and more importantly, go fast.
Last year I jumped on a kite "race-board" for the first time, and was instantly hooked. Aside from being able to kite in less than 9mph of wind, I was excited to be able to put forth all my racings skills that I had acquired from a young age once again. I am currently competing on the 2013 IKA Course Racing tour.
Accomplishments : Lord of the Wind Course Racing : 3rd Place // African Championships, Egypt : 5th Place.
