Feel safe to talk.

Kitesurfing &


Kitesurfing changed my life back in 2012. I did not knwo what I was going to get myself into, what I was going to feel and experience, what was going to happen to me. My change to peak performance while remaining balanced and achieving my goals began back then. I have learned my lessons, I had my share of profound experiences and I would like to support you, guide you towards a balanced, peaceful and successful life, filled with quality, wellbeing, happiness and health.
  • Falling in love.


    Kitesurfing was the best that could have happened to me and it was more than I could have imagined or anticipated, not knowing a thing. Kitesurfing brought the ability to truly understand the meaning of “happiness” and “believing in my own power” to me.

Kitesurfing &


In my coachings I combine the knowledge of my past ten years on the water, my knowledge about stress, it's effects on the body, mind and human performance - I read your mind and body without you needing to expose yourself to me, all is revelaed to me through using the kite. During our coachings I draw parallels to situations and habits in your life. This will empower you to change exactly in the way needed for you, with determination, as you felt what somethign means to you.
  • Feeling your own emotions.


    Kitesurfing gives you the power to sustainable change. I learned to not only reflect my thoughts but to catch those thoughts bothering me, feeling their power over me and while out there on the water, changing their effect on me into a positive source of strength.

Be. Feel.
