DO YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ALEX PASTOR? DON’T MISS HIS BIOGRAPHY
Alex was born in Malaga (Spain), when he was just 8 years old his father bought him his first personal windsurf equipment. He was living close to Tarifa and that’s where he spent most of his free time. In the year 2003 he started kitesurfing. Together with his brother he took a few kitesurf lessons and afterwards they bought their own equipment for practicing more. They practiced every day until they had to go back to Malaga. The following summer (2004) they came back to Tarifa and started kiting every single day. Alex made amazing progress and succeeded to get his first sponsor. At the end of the summer they didn’t want to go back to Malaga, they wanted to spend the winter in Tarifa and so they did. This was the year Alex started competing. He participated in his first competition, in Tarifa, and he won it. In 2006 he started to participate in the PKRA in Tarifa, Cabarete and Fuerteventura, but he just placed 13th. In 2007 he was in his last year of school, so he didn’t have a lot of time to prepare himself for the competitions. Once his school year ended he went directly to Cabarete and got 9th place. He was really happy with the result. When he returned from Cabarete he spent the whole summer in Tarifa, training every day up to 5 hours and was really motivated to progress. This brought him a good result in the competition in Fuerteventura, where he got 3rd. Afterwards he went to Germany, where he didn’t succeed to get a good result and then to Brazil, where he got 2nd and beat the TOP riders of the championship. This was the moment where Alex convinced himself to participate in the world championship in 2008.
