              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: I'm an fitness instructor. Kitesurfing is my thing, in particular, wave riding. Knees getting a bit old for too much jumping so my passion is for some down the line wave ride. I now live in Rome, trying to combine running my work with sneaking off for a sail or a surf. When not staring at a computer screen or sailing I can be found in my fitness center.
