First and foremost, I need to differentiate between the two roles: a trainer primarily focuses on the technical, tactical, and physical aspects of kiteboarding, while a coach accompanies and supports athletes in their competitions. A coach also addresses the technical aspects of kiteboarding but goes the extra mile to transform students' weaknesses into strengths.

"The coach must understand his athlete and help him to achieve his goals as quickly as possible. As a coach, I need to visualize his goals and find the right keys to unlock the doors to his success."

An athlete is seldom seen entering a competition without a support system. Every competitor has a mentor, even if they do not have a formal coach. An individual training alone often indicates a lack of strong competition. In high-level international events with over 300 participants, winning without support is nearly impossible. Achieving peak performance requires attention to various aspects, and only a qualified coach can design a suitable training program to reach that level.

Fabio and the whole AW team supported me from the very beginning, even before I started competing in the World Championships. Fabio's coaching pulls you out of your comfort zone, building tricks move by move, working on technique, strengthening muscle memory not only on the water, but also in the gym. All this constant training requires a lot of discipline from me. My success in the championships is our common merit.

World Champion 

You have been my coach since 2015. I know I haven’t always made it easy, but I appreciate all the encouragement you gave me along the way. You pushed me to my limits and I went out of my comfort zone during our coaching. We went through a lot together, but you were always there, supported me at competitions, helped me sign contracts with my first sponsors. In the end, everything has helped me to grow stronger and learned to aim higher. Thank you coach; keep doing what you do.”

To be honest, a coach is mandatory in every sport because he is the only person that is going to take training and bettering you seriously. Because I started my career with alpine skiing, I know that without a coach, it is very hard or even impossible to get to the top. Sometimes during competition I don’t feel like I can land a trick, and in those moments Fabio helps me get to the best I can be.

Firstly, set both long-term and short-term goals.

We analyze all the athlete's activities, both in and out of the water, to tailor the best training program based on their abilities and personal preferences. Make improvements to achieve goals step by step.

Don't wait for the coach to begin monitoring your progress. It's essential to learn independently, but a coach can guide you in the right direction for optimal progress. To realize your dream of becoming a professional kiteboarder, you need a coach to mentor you on and off the water. Additionally, enhance your social media presence to attract potential sponsors. Our team can accelerate your learning while ensuring safety and enjoyment of the sport.

I take pride in my coaching experience and my team, and I'm excited to mentor and assist the next generation in a sport I am truly passionate about.
