I am Ricky Rush, my biggest addiction in life is kitesurfing and I want to share this exciting sport with you! Kitesurfing is one of the most exciting water sports in the world and will bring many years of exhilaration and fun to anyone willing to learn. My goal is to teach you how to kitesurf safely and to build your confidence so you can experience the thrill of the sport as I do.
