My name is Bruna Kajiya. I'm a badass Brazilian kiteboarder from Ilhabela.
What is the reason you committed your life to kiteboarding?
It wasn't a choice ;), I love kiteboarding so much that I didn't really see any other way, I just had to work with it!
What is your biggest achievement in your sport?
There are two events that are important to me, one is to have become World Champion, the other is to be the first female kiteboarder to land a backside 540. But in general I pride myself to be part of pushing women's Kiteboarding to a very exiting level.
"In my view we are all passionate people expressing ourselves in the water, each one in a unique way."
What are you doing to push yourself everyday?
I look up at all the amazing things you can do kiteboarding, I want to do then all! That's such a strong fuel, always hungry for more!
What is your vision on what direction the sport should go?
The sport has so much potential; it can grow in many different ways and disciplines. I try not to put ourselves (riders) into boxes, commit to just one discipline. In my view we are all passionate people expressing ourselves in the water, each one in a unique way.
