JUNGO

Since an early age I have been incredibly passionate about the outdoors and sport.  Growing up I followed a very academic upbringing through higher education which led me to brand manager for a Swiss watch company.

Always wanting to explore life possibilities around me and with a hunger for travel I started kiteboarding in 2006 in the Dominican Republic.  Putting as much time as I could to improve my riding whilst still studying and working I decided in 2010 to take a break from working life to see the world as well as focus on kiteboarding more.  Realising this was the lifestyle and sport I wanted to follow I started looking for sponsors to help and support me to become a professional athlete.

Through the support of my current sponsors I have been able to push my level of riding and make it to compete on the Kiteboarding World Tour (PKRA).  I am very proud to have ranked 5th for 3 years. 

 

My goal is to show how important it is to have a passion and to believe in yourself. I also hope that I can inspire people on my trips and via my social media channels to work hard and live their dreams.
