I AM Luke McGillewie

What is the reason you committed your life to kiteboarding? 
Try it, you'll understand straight away! It’s a lifestyle, we have the coolest community around, everyone is super friendly and always keen to have a good time on the water!

What is your biggest achievement in your sport? 
Ending 5th on the KSP world tour in 2012 with my best result being a 4th place at Mauritius, One Eye.

"When it comes to riding waves, you can always hold back that second longer."

What are you doing to push yourself every day? 
When it comes to riding waves, you can always hold back that second longer, so as soon as you take a second to long you eventually find your limit and mother nature will teach you a lesson.
 
Whats your vision on what direction the sport should go? 
From a competition perspective I think the world champ should be crowned from being the best in every discipline, but the way the world is going I would love for it to go huge into the media/social media side of things giving riders openness to do crazy things and explore unexplored places.
