Do you know how Alex Pastor started in the world of Kitesurfing?
Born in Málaga (Spain), when Álex was only 8 years old, his father bought him windsurfing equipment. He lived very close to Tarifa, so he used to go there frequently. In 2003 he started practicing kitesurfing.
He and his brother took some lessons and bought their first kite. That summer they learned kite but they had to go back to Malaga in September so in the summer they could practice it too.
The following summer (2004), they returned to Tarifa and began to make kites every day. Alex progressed a lot and got his first sponsor. After finishing the summer they did not want to return to Malaga like the previous year, they wanted to spend the winter in Tarifa and they did so. That year, Alex started competing. He entered his first competition and won. This was in Tarifa and everyone was surprised with his victory, including him.
In 2006 he began to do the PKRA but he only got the 13th place in Tarifa, Cabarete and Fuerteventura. 2007 was his last year at school. Everything was perfect there, he continued studying in Tarifa and because of it he could not practice too much Kite in winter. When he finished, he went straight to PKRA Cabarete, got 9th place and everything was perfect. I had not practiced too much so I did not expect to get something like that. After this competition he returned to Tarifa and throughout the summer he spent all day on the beach practicing up to 5 hours each day. Thus, later it was the PKRA Fuerteventura. In it, he got the 3rd place, something that made him really happy. Later he went to Germany where unfortunately he got a bad result, however, in Brazil he got the 2nd place and beat almost all the top riders of the moment. That was the moment that convinced Alex to decide to do the world tour in 2008.
