Contact Mike

Mike currently lives, with his wife Susie, in Cape Town. They are partners in a marketing design agency. He spends all his free time travelling, meeting people and, of course, kitesurfing. Mike is an IKO certified kitesurfing instructor, trained in Cabarete, Dominican Republic.

Mike grew up in South Africa, but has also spent several years in Dubai as well as the UK. It was in Dubai where he began his passion for kitesurfing, which gave him the desire to seek out new wind and waves. This inspired the year of travelling through Central and South America, on which this book is based.

Over the years, Mike and his mates have arranged kitesurfing safaris around the world, some of which have been in Turkey, Egypt, Oman and Mauritius. They continue to get together each year to discover new places and adventures.
