Red Bull King of the Air
Susi Mai

Susi grew up living the carefree life of a true beach girl, having moved to the Dominican Republic at the age of five. After graduating at an American bilingual private Elementary and High school in 2002, Susi, who had only been kiteboarding for eight months, placed 2nd at her very first international PKRA competition. From that point on, things got bigger and better for Susi and she managed to secure 5th spot in the World Tour.

A highlight of Susi’s career to date was her very first win of the King (or in her case, Queen) of The Air, in Maui.

Today, Susi is considered one of the most inspirational and decorated female kiteboarders in the world. Her deep passion and dedication to growing the sport has manifested in a number of creative, innovative and impactful projects, including the annual MaiTai event, an exclusive kiteboarding camp in Hawaii for entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. She has also teamed up with Cabrinha to design and develop a line of kiteboarding gear specifically for girls, and she also happens to be the official patron of KiteRight Charity, a non-profit organization that uses kite sports to improve the lives of people who would not normally have the means to access the sport.


Stats
  • First person ever to clinch King of Air Maui three times consecutively (2003, 2004 and 2005)
  • Top five for six years during PKRA World Tour competitions
  • Susi, together with Cabrinha, created the first-ever full range of women's specific kite gear
"There’s nothing better than the rush of the ocean under your board and harnessing the power of the wind with your kite – I can’t wait to bring people out there so they can learn to love this sport as much as I do."
- Susi Mai
