Stefan SpiessbergerFreestyle

Stefan Spiessberger is one of the best kitesurfers in Austria. The beginning of his passion started at his homespot lake Traunsee in Austria."When I bought my first Kite, I was still going to school and didn't have a car or a driving license. My enthusiasm for the sport was so big that I went to the spot by bike - every day in summer, with all my gear on my back!"

After spending 2 years on his homespot in Austria, Stefan decided to spend 4 months in Egypt/El Gouna to improve his level and riding skills. One year later he already became Austrian Champion in Freestyle in 2009. In the meantime Stefan joined the national team of the biggest kitesurfing brand on the market - North Kiteboarding. One season later he jumped up to the North Kiteboarding International Team.

"Joining the International Team of NKB was one of my dreams from the beginning on. At this point I started to realize, the life i was dreaming of, the life as a professional athlete, was finally coming true."

In 2010 and 2011 Stefan competed in the Kitesurftour Europe (European Championchip) and placed himself imediatelly in the Top 5 of europeans Kitesurfers. In 2011 he ended up 5th in the overall ranking of the Kitesurftour Europe and showed some good performaces on several events of the Worldtour.

Since that time, Stefan is placing himself with consistent Top 10 results on the Worldtour under the Top Riders not only in Competition but also shows his passion for the sport in frequent video parts that he puts out on the web!
