About:
I am a 21-year-old water sports athlete born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. My primary competitive water sports discipline is kite surfing, focusing on the new school era of strapless wave-riding and freestyle. However, I am also a competitive stand-up paddle surfer as well as a competent hydrofoil surfer, wing-foiler, surfer, and general lover of the ocean, and I am an international team rider for two of the world’s leading water sports equipment brands, F-one and Manera. When I am not in the water training in these various water sports disciplines, I am a student studying product design at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology with the hopes of combining my passion for water sports and design with working as a designer in the watersports industry ultimately.

My Achievements:
South African men’s Wave Kitesurfing Champ 2019
Top-ranked South African men’s Stand-Up Paddle Surfing 2019
Joined F-one and Manera international teams 2019
