Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into Stand Up Paddling?
I always practice gliding activities like windsurfing.kiting.surfing, but when I discovered SUP it was so good to go in the water at any kind of condition. In the meantime I am addicted to Race (Downwind.Beach Race, Long Distance, etc.).
Why Fanatic boards?
For me Fanatic boards have really good shapes and the Fly Race and is really light. That´s absolutely important for me as a racer to be competitive.
What is your favourite board?
12'6 Fly Race with less volume and the 8'2 ProWave for surfing
And what was your favourite experience on a SUP?
SUP Surfing is great to have a news view of the wave . What are your plans?
My plan is to train hard and go fast, but always have fun on the water!
