ATTENTION! STRAPS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE
Born in Sal – Cape Verde, Mitu was the pioneer of the strapless because he didn’t have enough money to afford it.
Having inspired an entire generation with a new discipline, he became a star but only the friendly soul, the permanent smile and his open spirit got to mak him an icon.
Today he lives between the worldwide coaching and a family life, raising three boys who will most likely follow his paths.
It was 1999 and a friend of mine came to me with one of the first kites released on the market and a theory book.
I left the book and I decided to try the kite that changed my life.

THE KITE MAG
Mitu is a legend within the sport. He showed to the world what was possible to do riding waves with a kite – both on a wave and in the air – and he continues to be an incredible ambassador for the sport and an inspiration for the next generation of riders.
Devoted to kitesurfing from day one, Mitu has not only fought to give more opportunities to local Cape Verdean youngsters, but continues to inspire so many riders worldwide. A gentleman, icon and a magician in the waves.
