    Sir Richard Branson

    Necker Local

    This man knows the island really well and will occasionally be dropping in to kitesurf or have a meal with us, at which point he will also be happy to answer any questions about the island wildlife.

    Susi Mai

    Host / Kite Caddy

    Susi was born in Germany to parents who were passionate windsurfers. When she was 5 years old her family moved to the Dominican Republic to pursue their love of adventure and great beaches. There, Susi grew up on the island, living the carefree life of a beach girl. When she was a teenager, she discovered her life’s passion: kiteboarding.

     

    Today, Susi is considered one of the most inspirational and decorated female kiteboarders in the world. Her deep passion for growing sport has manifested into a number of creative, innovative and impactful projects, including her previous gig at MaiTai Globalt (dubbed by the media as the “anti-conference” and likened to the prestigious TED conferences).

     

    She’s also designed and developed the first ever line line of kiteboarding equipment – just for girls – setting the scene for a female gear market.

     

    When Susi’s not traveling around the world chasing the perfect wind, competing professionally, and striving to get the number of girls to outnumber boys on the water, she calls the Dominican Republic home, where she has a dog, a closet and her family.
