My story

Fly with me!

I am Finn. I am the U16 GKA Freestyle World Champion and I want to share my passion for kiting with you.


Born in Franconia, Germany, I consider myself a cosmopolitan, travelling between my native town Hof, El Gouna, Egypt, and Brasil – and the rest of the world!

“I spent my whole life by or in the water.

I cannot imagine changing that.”

My skills

Kiter, Hydrofoiler,
Wingfoiler

Since I was 2 years old I’ve been passionately watching, playing, testing kitesurfing. When I was 4 years old, I started flying my training kites on various beaches around the globe. Three years later the time had come: I got my first board – specially made for me by my dad’s factory – plus a Flysurfer Viron – and there was no turning back!

My approach 

Awareness

Fairness

I feel privileged to be able to travel the world and get to see so many different amazing places. My lush, green, Bavarian home region, the dry surroundings of El Gouna or the unique Cauipe lagoon in Brasil – each environment has its own allure, and each is absolutely worth preserving.

“Traveling the world means: new friends, new languages, respect for other cultures.”
