Kiteboarding is a beautiful sport in which the wind powers a parachute like kite to pull a rider who stands on a board as they glide through the water.

Skateboarder from a young age, I have spent most of my life in the French Alpes where I practiced snowboarding for 25 years. I fell in love with kiteboarding when I first discovered it in 2010.
It is an accessible adventure sport in which you experience amazing sensations and enjoyment from the very beginning. It is a sport in which you continually develop your skills – the progression is endless.
There is so much to explore when you are kiteboarding, you can either go fast or cruise along, do jumps and tricks, ride a wave or even glide along above the water using a foil board. The skills that can be developed seem endless – and all whilst being powered by the wind in a natural environment.
I look forward to sharing my passion for kiteboarding and promoting and expanding this amazing sport in the Pilbara.
I first saw kiteboarding as a young girl when my parents took us from the Australian bush to visit the beach, I thought it looked amazing but didn’t realise it was something I would ever be able to do – a powerful image and dream was burnt into my imagination. I finally made that dream a reality when I took the leap and learnt to kiteboard in 2010.
I loved kiteboarding from the beginning – the feeling of freedom was something I hadn’t experienced in any other sport. I threw myself into getting out and enjoying the wind and the ocean as often as possible and still can’t get enough of it.
It is a beautiful sport in which you can experience being out in nature and appreciate the power of the elements. I have a big passion for the outdoors and making exercise fun, I look forward to sharing this passion and teaching people the amazing sport of kiteboarding.
