I am so happy to have joined the Kitesurf China team and to work with David and Atte. It is a nice feeling to have my first kiteboarding family and I look forward to meeting more and more people over the coming seasons.
My father, mother are both paragliding instructor at the Jonathan Paragliding School currently operating in Pyeongchang. I started paragliding at the age of 14 and enjoyed it.
My father was the first person in the family to try kiteboarding and bring the sport into Korea. In November 2011 immediately after high school I began to learn kiteboarding in Vietnam and was immediately hooked. New to water sports but a lot of fun and I loved the power a kite could generate. That day in Vietnam I already knew that kiteboarding was my future and I would not go back to paragliding, much to the disappointment of my parents 🙂 .
I have made it my goal to kite board in all parts of the world, make new friends and take part in as many competitions as I can. I have now discovered the speed of a race board and will make this my discipline for the future. There are more men racing in this sport than woman and I hope that this statistic will change in the future.
I would also like to help this sport be promoted to more children and hope that I can soon start kite kids camps in Korea and help the KTA with their Kite Kids Camps. Life is short and should be fun and kiteboarding has given me the fun I have been looking for.
