Q & A with Maxi:
Wainman Hawaii: How do you feel about joining the Wainman Hawaii Team?.
Maxi Gomez: I feel very identified with the way the team is and what they are aiming for. It’s a really cool and Core kiteboarding brand, and for me its a pleasure to be part of that movement.
WH: You are pure freestyle rider, tell us what are your favorite tricks and maybe you are working on some new ones now?.
MG: At the moment I'm training hard in Brazil, I’m working on double passes right now putting the kite low. But If i have to stick with one trick in particular, that is the BackMobe5.
WH: You have been riding ManiaC C Kite for few weeks now? What do you think about the kite?.
MG: I think is the perfect Kite for my style, as the kite gives me the right slack and pop for my power tricks. Also the relaunching is super easy thanks to the 5th line.
WH: What are your kite-boarding goals for 2015 in terms of competition?.
MG: I’m working as hard as I can to qualify next Year for the Top 24. I want and gain as much experience as possible competing, so I can be ready in 2016 to be on top of the lists.
WH: Your hometown is Tarifa (Spain) but you consider your residence place as "all around the world", so where are your favorite kite spots? Where you just love to ride all day!?
MG: I know a few places in The world but my favorite is in Tarifa, as besides the place is very nice for training, everyday is different, there is nothing like feeling like home.
WH: Few words words for the fans?.
MG: Want to thank to all the people supporting me, such my parents, sponsors, and all those that loves frequently my videos and pictures. Big Thanks!. :)
