About Maria

I was born in the South of Spain, and began windsurfing at the age of eight off the coast of Cadiz.  Competing since the age of 13, windsurfing has taken me around the world and sparked my love of travel and discovery.

 

Combining my passion for the sport together with my education in graphic design has allowed me to make a career of discovering the most beautiful locations imaginable.

I am now a travel writer and branded content creator for world-class companies and destinations, contributing to Windsurf and Stand Up Paddle magazines around the world. I am also the editor of SUPING Magazine.

Competitive Career

I began my competitive windsurf career at the age of 13, with a focus on Olympic Class racing.  I was a member of the Spanish Olympic Team in 2002-2003, before turning my focus to Formula and Slalom racing.

My career took a new turn when I discovered the world of wavesailing, and I now travel the world in search of the best waves and wind to push my own limits, as well competing on the International Windsurfing Tour.
