2. Favorite kiteboarding/surfing/SUP/ diving etc. spot? Why? I love Hood River for park riding and easily Brazil for freestyle!
3. What is the most daring thing you have ever done?
I climbed Kilimanjaro alone when I was 17 (with a guide of course!)
4. Best kiteboard/surf/SUP/diving trip?
My best trip was to Taiba, Brazil when I was able to live with all my friends and kite a few sessions everyday! I progressed a lot in my kiting as well as spent quality time in the sun with amazing people. The vibes were off the charts.
5. Favorite place to visit?
I always love going back home and visiting Kenya for its pristine waters and white sand beaches. It has everything I could want including wind and safaris!
6. Special talent?
I would say being a nomad is my special talent. Not staying anywhere for more than a few months in the last 6 years!
7. Favorite food?
Anything vegan and fresh.
8. Your dream?
My dream is to find a place to call home that has a good kite spot, my own garden, and an airport nearby to still get my travel fix.
9. Coolest thing you’ve seen while traveling?
oh that's a hard one…. probably kiteboarding amongst dolphins and sea turtles off the Kenyan coastline.
10. Favorite way to stay fit?
I always bring my TRX and yoga mat with me wherever I go and I fill up on healthy vegan food. yummmm.
11. Five things you couldn’t live without?
my family, kiteboarding, fresh food, traveling, and a good laugh
12. What are your 2017 goals, and any big plans for this year?
During this year, I plan on attending all the Kite Park League tour stops as well as opening my own business! It’s still under wraps at the moment :)
