|1 When and why did you start to Kiteboard?|
My father is a great fan of nautical sports, windsurfing, surfing and when kitesurfing arrived in Spain, my father started to practice. I always saw him flying and surfing on the sea, and I saw how much fun he was having. I asked him if he would teach me, He told me that I was crazy but in the end I convinced him to buy me a small foil of 3m, and I began to practice in the sand. I have been practising flying since I was six. In the summer of 2003 the breeze was light , I asked if I could go and practise on the water. My father put the harness on me and I started sailing.
7 Do you ever get stressed travelling around so much?
Travelling is one of the best things of being a professional kitesurfer. When you travel you get to know many countries and meet many friends, and it's always very exciting to go Kitesurfing in new places

In Kitesurfing there are two world tours, the Kiteboard Professional World Tour KPWT and the Professional Kiteboard Riders Association PKRA, that is to say that there are two champions of the world. I could not participate in the PKRA because they have a minimum age of 14 years but in the competition of the PKRA of Fuerteventura of this summer 2006 they invited me to to participate. I obtained the one that without doubt is my most important victory to date, I conquered Germany's Kristin Boese the World Champion in PKRA. Kristin is a very good rider. I always look at her videos and saw the tricks that she does, like handlepass, tricks to wrapped, or to blind. I knew it was going to be very hard to beat her. To conquer her was one of my dreams and I surpassed that at the age of 12.
