Daniela, growing up in San Francisco, started kitesurfing at the age of 12, 2 years later she competed in her very first race. Since then she is literally unstopable. After winning all important hydrofoil events, she recently has started her studies in International Business and Marketing at the University of Hawaii. Besides kiteboarding Daniela loves beeing outside; hiking, climbing, swimming or freediving matches her mindset “just go for it” perfectly. Although when being indoor, reading a good book and watching movies gives her the right off- water balance. Foiling underneath the golden gate bridge at sunset is one of her favorite activities, especially when she is at home kiting with friends.
