My name is Riccardo Battivelli. I am a 30 year old Sicilian local and have always been addicted to water sports. A few years ago I was fascinated by the colourful kites flying in the air, then I tried kite surfing and was hooked for life.
Whenever I’m in the water kitesurfing I have an exhilarating rush of adrenaline. My passion to follow the wind has taken me all around the world, and also offered the privilege of learning 4 languages fluently.
I am a qualified IKO teacher, also specialized in teaching children and for several years I have been chief instructor in several kite schools.
My greatest pleasure is knowing I have inspired a love of kitesurfing in my students.
Having traveled all over the world (Dubai, Dominican Republic, Indonesia and around Europe) I’ve had the opportunity to master the multiple kite disciplines (big air, free style, free ride, foil and wave).
Now I have decided to put my knowledge into practice in my homeland and create an opportunity for people to learn to fly on the water, like me.
