Mario got into board sports when he was young, his parents traveled around Europe with a camper and at the age of 6 he started surfing, by 7 he was windsurfing and kiting was a natural progression.
“In 2000 my dad started kiting and obviously he had to teach me. I got my own kite, learned some tricks and my parents had to drive me to all the events...
If I am not traveling I stay at my parents house in Rendsburg, north of Germany. I love staying at home, eating my mum´s food and do something with my friends here. Furthermore we have some sick flat-water spots within an hour’s drive.

My first PKRA event was the one in Germany 2006. Until 2010 I could only compete in half of the events because I had to finish high school.
That’s why I always had to study on planes and couldn’t arrive early to the events. I studied at the Open University in England. It’s called Management and Leadership, which sounds like working 14 hours a day in a suit but is actually very fun. Some years ago I wanted to become a dentist but over the years on the tour I figured out that I will never be able to stay in one place for such a long time. On the other hand I never wanted to miss the party in the end and sometimes arrived in school very tired…

For sure I want be on the podium one day, but the most important thing is the fun. There are so many spots I still want to ride and I have quite a lot of tricks in my head, which I really want to land at least once! Since last year I am doing the whole tour. Right now I am studying online and my plan is to finish in the Top 5 next year.”
