What was the reason for you to start kitesurfing?

I started kitesurfing because I love adrenaline.

One day, when I was 11 years old, I was arriving at home with my father and he saw a couple of guys doing tricks in the water with foil kites and he said:

_ Hey, Dani, do you wanna learn it?

_ Wow, for sure, this must be really great!

So, we had a conversation with the instructor and in the following day I was already learning how to kite.

In the second day I learned the water starts and was enjoying that feeling that just the people who kite knows!

Are you learning fast? Did all tricks come easy for you or did you need to work hard on each of them?

Yes, I think I can say I’m a fast learner, but that’s just a part of the work because you have to practice the tricks everyday to do it the most powerful and stylish you can, it takes a lot of time to learn.

What was your most fascinating moment in kiteboarding?

My most fascinating moment was when I started doing slimchances, that was my first handlepass trick which I will never forget the feeling.

What is your favorite trick?

Slimchance, Kgb and Blind Judge.

When I’m overpowered I like to do Big megaloops!

On wich trick are you working now?

I’m working on KGB to blind, Slimchance to blind and switch tricks.

Are you planning to participate on KPWT this year? How do you assess your chances?

Yes, I will try to participate in some of the seasons of KPWT like Turkey, Italy and some others.

Which is your favorite spot?

Esposende and Cauípe (Portugal)

Who is your favorite rider? Why?

My favorite riders are Aaron Hadlow and Ruben Len10, I can´t explain why, they are my inspiration, they are just the best, someday I will be like them, I hope so.

Who is your favorite girl rider? Why? 🙂

Bruna is the best. xD

She has a lot of power and style.

Maybe someday Gisela will be like her.

What are your plans for future? After 5-10 years?

Be that kind of TOP rider that everybody knows I am!

What are you doing when there is no wind?

Graffiting, being with some friends, drawing etc.

Describe in few words what is your ideal day?

Sunny day, blue sky, 25 degrees, hot water and 20 knots.

What is your dream for life?

Living in a house in a paradisiacal place with my family, where, at the beach, the wind blows every single day.

Have my money, have my sponsors, have fun and go to the championships.
