About this blog
A bit about me.
I grew up in Port Lincoln, South Australia and worked there as a professional fisherman until 1987 when I contracted viral encephalitis which left me quite severely disabled.
Kite surfing was not around before I got sick so I never had the opportunity to try it. Ever since then I have always wanted to try kitesurfing but thought that I would not be able to.
I’m always looking for a challenge and while in Port Douglas In 2010 the local kitesurfing school was having a demo day, I saw that they had a buggy sitting on the beach, my eyes lit up with excitement and i asked “would I be able to do that?” of course they said “why not!”. I never looked back!
I spent a couple of years struggling with foils, I would spend half my time crawling back and forth between the buggy and a wet/crumpled foil or waiting for help so that I can relaunch.
