Looking out of the window in Math class onto a busy kitesurfing beach, Bruna could not resist running down after school with her friends to give it a go. Having suffered a serious surfing accident she had been looking for another sport to fill that gap in her life, and she had found it right outside her school in Sao Paulo!

She continued her academic study in Maui where her riding progressed massively and she picked up wakestyle, which would change her style forever. On her return to Brazil the plan was to continue studying and go to university, luckily Bruna was convinced by her mother to try kiting at a professional level instead and she has never looked back since.

Having settled for second place three years in a row 2009 was the year Bruna’s determination finally paid off and she took the top spot on the PKRA world tour podium. Today Bruna is known for her powered tricks and dedication to closing the gap between men and women’s kiting. “I thought that my goal was to be world champion, that it would fulfill me as a professional. When I managed to be world champion in 2009 I realized that it didn’t really change anything. For me it’s about pushing the sport and making it go into another direction.”

Bruna finished up back in second place overall in 2010 and aims to spend this season continuing to push women’s riding to the next level whilst winning back her world title and most importantly enjoying herself!
