About me

Born in Wales, I reached for the sea, as I recall. I sailed on boats of 16 people, discovered windsurfing and surfing and became interested in the energy of the ocean.

Hi, my name is Alfonso Fernandez

I continued to make my dreams come true, participating in the World Windsurfing Championships and surfing for the Welsh team of Europeans.

In 2001, I discovered kiteboarding in Hawaii during windsurfing and immediately made my first transition. British titles followed and then PKRA, where, in my first competition, I secured a 3rd place in freestyle and then in the waves.

In 2008, I won all the stages of the KPWT Wave Masters world tour and became the professional of kitesurfing, what I’m very proud of.

Kiteboarding is my passion and lifestyle

In addition to the competitive side of sports. I also took part in long-distance kiteboarding trips to raise money for charity – I took a kiteboard from Ireland to Wales, and in 2006 from the Canary Islands to Morocco, a nine-hour non-stop transition of 140 miles.

Now, I compete less and spend most of my time combining kiteboarding with my other passion, yoga, through my Experience courses in Mauritius, Morocco and at home in Lanzarote.
