Manager / SUP instructor · ENS 1 , IOSUP Certificate
Linked to sports since childhood, he began to practice adventure sports such as skiing, snowboarding and mountain bike in adolescence. The sea has always been a passion for him and it was a matter of time that he started playing sea sports.
He began to learn windsurfing and immediately became the sport he practiced most. This fact took him to Maui (Hawaii), the mecca of these types of sports. There he learned and became more evolved in windsurfing and began surfing. For the first time, he saw the Stand Up Paddle (SUP) or Paddle Surfing, which just started as a new sport and he was fascinated!
It was not until after a few years that SUP became popular in our country and where he could start practicing it, being stuck on it from the first moment.
From then on, he devoted his time to practicing and forming himself, first in SUP Surfing and then in SUP Race (competition modality).
He is a National Surfing Trainer level 1 (ENS1) by the FESURF (Spanish Surf Federation) and Stand Up Paddle Instructor for the IOSUP (International Organization of Stand Up Paddle).
Linked to the world of competition in SUP Race, where he competes nationally and in some races of the European tour (Eurotour), he has been a champion of Catalonia in 2017 in Elite 12.6 category and 6th in Elite 14 in 2018.
