The Values

FROM CAPe VERDE TO rule THE WAVES OF THE WORLD

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.
